BOSS DA-2 Adaptive Distortion
The third BOSS Pedal announced for NAMM 2013 using their MDP Multi-Dimensional Programming Technology is the DA-2 Adaptive Distortion pedal.

“Unlike standard distortion pedals that process the entire guitar signal with one effect, the DA-2’s Multi-Dimensional Processing employs multiple distortion processors to seamlessly adapt the sound in real time and create the ideal tone for every register. As a result, the DA-2 delivers a rich, musical distortion that plays well all over the neck, from tight, edgy low-string tones to fat, smooth highs for lead playing. With the power of MDP, the DA-2’s distortion is dramatically responsive to your playing dynamics, and every note is heard with clarity and definition.”

Here are a few of the features:

  • Distortion that adapts to create the ideal sound in every register
  • Ultra-responsive to volume changes and playing dynamics
  • High-clarity sound, even when playing two or more notes at the same time
  • Very low noise, even with high-gain settings
  • Intuitive operation similar to standard distortion pedals
