This is the best distortion i have found, I just wish I could have 2 more so I could use more of it's tones.

Has a two band EQ, gain and distortion controlls and a volume knob.
I use it with a Gibson SG Special, and a Crate 120 watt solid state amp, and the tone and power is just awsome, it is a little loud when you just have it on and you're not playing, but it's not noticeable at all when you're playing.
I would say it's probably better suited to rock and hard rock than blues or that sort of music, as it really does give a lot of bottom end when desired.
It takes a litte time to dial your tone but it can be set to almost anything and sound good.
I kicked it off a stage once because it was shorting out, and all it needed was a little tightening of the inputs. This will not break.
I was planning to buy the MT-2, but this thing blows it out of the water. It's basically a souped-up DS-1.

Controls for Level, Tone, Bottom, Distortion and Gain Boost. Very simplistic, and not too hard to find a good sound.
When you crank up the gain boost you get mega noise, but unless you're not playing anything, or recording, it should be a problem.
Pretty easy to operate. It has everything a distortion pedal should have.
Boss. 'Nuff said. Can also be used for a doorstop or car jack.
I would definately buy another on if lost or stolen. It is a wee bit on the expensive side, but with distortion like this, its well worth it.

This thing doesnt sing or dance or anything, but its a BOSS pedal, u know when you buy it it going to do exactly what it says it will. It can be plugged into the wall, ac, or battery powered. And it looks cool!
I got home and ran this thing through my 10 watt practice amp, what a difference. This thing sounds amazing, and can generate enough sounds to keep everyone happy. When i plugged it into my Marshall the neighbours rang up to complain. And they live miles away. Real rock/ classic rock kinda sound.
You could train a monkey to use the pedal. Although you really wouldnt want a monkey messin with it if it were yours.
Pretty damn strong. Is there anything else you can say!
