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 Angry Driver features three dual-concentric knobs that provide independent drive, tone, and level control for each overdrive type. Via a six-position mode selector, you can use each overdrive independently, or combine them together in series and parallel configurations. With the ability to blend the Blues Driver’s famously expressive low-to-mid gain tones with the Angry Charlie’s aggressive rock voice in any combination, the JB-2 Angry Driver delivers unmatched range and versatility from a single overdrive pedal.
The BD-2 is a pedal that offers all the classic bluesy sound you would expect from a vintage tube amp. Fat overdrive, smooth warm sustain and a nice boost all without sacrificing the tone of your guitar. As a result you get all the textures you need to make your guitar sing, cry and scream. The Angry Charlie from JHS Pedals is an amp-in-a-box pedal recreating the tone of a Marshall JCM800. Due to its tonal pallet this is one versatile tool. Furthermore, you can get a bluesy Hendrix style breakup all the way to a high gain Brit tone. If you are a glutton for high-gain overdrive/distortion that has a British flavor, the Angry Charlie will change your life. Well, your gear life.
If you are in the market for an overdrive pedal this would be a great choice regardless of musical style. Since the JB-2 Angry Driver is a two in one pedal you get the best of both worlds. From bluesy warm overdrive to high gain distortion, the Angry Driver will deliver. This is a very successful hybrid pedal from two well known pedal companies and hopefully will not be the last.
