Boss BD-2 Blues Driver(Keeley Fat Mod)

What do you do when you have a great pedal suited for playing the blues? You change a few resistors and capacitors and make it even better. One of the best mods out on the street is the Keeley Electronics BD-2 phat mods. Boss intended this pedal to be more responsive to pick-attack and guitar volume controls. That didn't stop Robert Keeley from changing the circuitry into something a little better. Many musicians like Brad Paisley, John Mayer, Jason Becker, Pearl Jam, Emmylou Harris guitarist Buddy Miller and Bob Dylan's guitarist Bob Britt favour this blue meanie. Even Guitar World gave this little modded unit kudos in a review. Since SRV brought blues back into the spotlight before his untimely death many people have since tried to fill his shoes. It's one of the newer Boss effects but it's not going anywhere. For more info on these effects by Boss see or visit
