BOSS Celebrate 40th Anniversary with JHS JB-2 Angry Driver

The JB-2 Angry Driver is the brand new release from Boss. A result of Boss and JHS Pedals coming together to celebrate Boss' 40th anniversary, the JB-2 Angry Driver pedal pairs the legendary tones of the Boss BD-2 Blues Driver and JHS Pedals' Angry Charlie. Through this meeting of minds, Boss and JHS Pedals spent time developing a way to integrate a newly designed combined circuit into their pedal. Once implemented into the pedal's design, this new circuit helped to administer an exceptionally refined and streamlined operability, great for supplementing the pedal's dual-mode drive operation.

Featuring a classic 'no-nonsense' front panel associated with the archetypal BOSS design, the player can efficiently choose between the three featured dual-centric knobs, each of which provides independent drive, tone and level parameters. With the pedal's featured six-position mode selector, you can pick and choose individual FX or meld their voices together to achieve a truly unique configuration. With two types of drive, dual-concentric knobs and half a dozen independent modes, the JB-2 covers an unprecedented range of overdrive tonality. Highly untypical for a standard blues pedal, the JB-2 delivers one of the industries most unique and diverse voices to date.

Speaking of the groundbreaking collaboration, BOSS president Yoshi Ikegami said:

"I think it's a wonderful thing that two companies have collaborated based on a great mutual respect for each other.When this plan came up, we used the ES-8 switching system to try numerous combinations of our pedals with the JHS Angry Charlie.I thought a combination allowing each pedal to complement the other would be interesting to try. The sound of the Angry Charlie is exactly what BOSS didn't have." Josh Scott of JHS Pedals added:

"It stacks amazingly with the Blues Driver, What's great about the Blues Driver is it covers low gain phenomenally, and it does boost really well, and that accents what the Angry Charlie is. The Angry Charlie is always angry, so the Blues Driver helps mellow it out and do different things."
