1988 Boss OD-2 Turbo Overdrive Vintage Guitar Effects Pedal, Black Label Japan


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 1988 Boss OD-2 Turbo Overdrive in perfect working order. An early Japan-made black label example of the OD-2, this pedal was created as a replacement for the OD-1 in the mid 1980s (with production moving to Taiwan by late 1988).

Building off the already legendary OD-1, the newer design offered two distinct modes. In Mode One the sound is similar to the original OD-1 with warm, vintage, tube-like overdrive tones, while in Turbo mode, even more gain is available, and a Tone control is included for sonic fine-tuning. The OD-2 is built using only discrete components (no integrated circuits).

There are some minor marks on the enclosure, the original knobs are intact, and the silkscreen lettering is clean. Inside the battery compartment, the original serialized sticker is present, dating the pedal to January of 1988, and the black foil label is present on the back.
