    Pros
    • + Combines two iconic overdrive cicuits into one form factor
    • + The mode selector lets you choose the signal path to create the sound that you want w/o re-wiring
    This combines the Boss Blues Driver and the JHS Angry Charlie circuit into one box and lets you run them separately, in series or in parallel. Anyone that has stacked fuzzes, OD and/ or distortion pedals knows what kind of amazing results can be had with some time, patience and imagination. This pedal takes two iconic OD circuits and gives you the tools to intertwine them in any way you choose. You can get a treble-ly grind, ala Motorhead or a deep, doomy sludge fest ala [insert your favorite doom bassist here].

    To start down the doom path with this pedal:
    JHS level: mid-point (50%)
    JHS tone: completely counter clockwise (0%)
    JHS drive: completely clockwise (100%)

    JHS level: (30%)
    JHS tone: completely counter clockwise (0%)
    JHS drive: mid-point (50%) and higher, depending on taste and want/ need for more grit

    Using the mode selector, you can use either of the pedals to use as a clean boost to drive the other pedal into a seriously overdriven swarm of angry bees, send that signal to a tube amp at or just over the edge of being driven itself and watch faces melt.

    Both of the overdrive circuits are extremely sensitive to both the output of your instrument as well as to the attack on your strings, so that will give you yet another rabbit hole to head down in your exploration of this pedal's innumerable voices.
    Price Paid:
    199.99 (street price)

    BOSS celebrates 40 years of tone-shaping by teaming up with JHS to create the JB-2 Angry Driver. This versatile pedal packs the tones of the BOSS BD-2 Blues Driver and JHS Angry Charlie into a single BOSS-style housing. Three dual-concentric knobs provide independent Drive, Tone, and Level control for each voice, while a six-position mode selector dials in each overdrive independently or combines them in series and parallel configurations. Whether you use the Blues Driver to propel the Angry Charlie's aggressive voice into saturation, reverse the order to push the Blues Driver into a muscular crunch, or experiment with innovative new sounds, there are an endless array of tones inside of the JB-2 Angry Driver.
    BOSS BD-2 Blues Driver supplies smooth overdrive
    The BOSS BD-2 Blues Driver simulates the sound of a vintage tube amplifier — a killer creamy yet crunchy tonal blend. It's like having a finely-aged vintage tube amplifier in your rig. If you're playing blues, or if you're wanting to give your rock rig a different overdriven flavor than every other guitar player on the block, you'll love the warm overdrive and emotive distortion the Blues Driver adds to your rig.
    JHS Angry Charlie delivers hot-rodded high-gain
    The JHS Angry Charlie captures the essence of British tone, turning your guitar amp into a sonic flamethrower. The Angry Charlie makes conjuring high-gain tones a breeze, delivering the rich bass response, thick mids, and balanced high end you'd expect from a hot-rodded British stack. When they designed the Angry Charlie, JHS faithfully replicated a full British-style tone stack.
    Put them together for an endless array of tones
    JHS Pedals founder Josh Scott is a longtime admirer of the BOSS Blues Driver, and even credits the classic overdrive pedal with sparking his interest in stompbox building. So when the opportunity arose to collaborate with BOSS President Yoshi Ikegami, he was absolutely stoked. The two passionate pedal designers experimented with endless combinations of stompboxes, and BOSS's Blues Driver and JHS's Angry Charlie were the clear winners. Since the Blues Driver covers low gain so well, it acts as the perfect complement to the Angry Charlie's high-gain tones.
