It works best when you want that transparent sounding overdrive to help push the amp just a touch but don’t want that tubescreamer flavor sound. It is almost double the price but for a pedal that has this type of circuit is going to cost that much or even more from some other manufacturers. That means we’re talking about Boss reliability and overall setup. Keeley can be expensive, but he’s been in the business for a long time, and his mods are proven. I give an overall rating of 9, because for me, perfection is not of this world. The original isn’t true bypass and the mod that Robert gives makes it a true bypass pedal.

I love the fact that it has its own grain and Phat Mod brings a subtle but vital heat. I use a lespaul custom shop. These are crazy reliable and rarely ever break. That is pretty much all your going to be able to use this in. You will get a more singing tone and fatter tone ala this pedal then you would the stock version. It has a blues sound, as its name suggests, a grain and different “tubes screamers.

The original isn’t true bypass and the mod that Robert gives makes it a true bypass pedal. A great stock pedal, the BD-2 gives of great drive tones, perfect for rock and roll, blues or pop, and can get your tube amp to that special distorted spot that every player digs.

I do bboss have a Keeley original, but I ordered the kit in the U. I did not understand how to use it, I also saw a lot of videos on the web where guys did not understand either. I think it is exactly as if it came out of the workshops Keeley That means we’re talking about Boss reliability and overall setup.
Perfect for single coils and those brighter amps out there. Boss pedals have long been staples on many a pedalboard, and one that I always found to be a real stand-out is the BD-2 Blues Driver.
The BD-2 is a nice little pedal, the Phat Mod is great This mod not only gives the pedal a revoicing, but it also adds a special switch so you can select the thickness of the actual pedal. It will level out the highs and smoothed the midrange to compliment the lower end which made dialing in kdeley solid creamy overdrive much more tastier.
