One of the pedals main features is that the level of distortion is proportional to the picking strength. This is a feature taken to the extreme with the DN-2 Dyna Drive.

Unusual for a Boss overdrive, the colour of the BD-2 is blue. This is because they wanted to emphasize the blues part of the pedal’s name. The BD-2 has not had any known circuit changes since its release.
