Boss JB-2 Angry Driver Overdrive/Distortion Pedal

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of BOSS compact pedals, BOSS and JHS Pedals have come together in a historic creative collaboration between the two industry leaders. Housed in the classic BOSS compact design, the JB-2 Angry Driver pairs the tones of the iconic BOSS BD-2 Blues Driver with JHS Pedals’ popular Angry Charlie. Working closely together, the two pedal innovators have developed an all-new combined circuit with refined sound and performance perfectly tuned for dual-mode drive operation.

The JB-2 is Boss’ first collaboration pedal! They’ve teamed up with awesome the JHS Pedals to combine two of their best stompboxes into one sublime little unit. The JB-2 Angry Driver blends both the JHS Angry Charlie and Boss ‘ own BD-2 Blues Driver.

Everyone from pro guitarists to bedroom jammers are familiar with the biting tone of the Blues Driver, but you might be less in the know about the Angry Charlie. This searingly hot circuit captures the essence of a high-gain Marshall amp in a box. With both styles at your disposal, you have every flavour of classic, saturated tone to sculpt your unique sound.

Multiple Modes

The classic Boss chassis houses both circuits which can be accessed individually or stacked in two different ways. Run the BD-2 into the Angry Charlie or vise versa. You can access both circuits by using a remote Boss footswitch. Simply turn the knob on the far right of the pedal to the relevant setting.
