I had never backed the gain off of a Boss HM-2 pedal this far before. It doesn’t get insanely clean, but it does low gain MUCH better than I would have anticipated!
Some high gain distortion pedals are almost like “on and off switches” with their response. The Boss HM-2 is actually pretty smooth!
This pedal is so much more than the “chainsaw” that most people think of it as.
To be honest, I don’t even think that is the best sound the Boss HM-2 has!
I’m also running it into the Digitech Supernatural Reverb pedal. This pedal was a @ProGuitarShopDemos exclusive back in the day and it makes me a touch nostalgic.
In this clip I am running the effect pedal in “Supernova” mode which adds some intense modulation to the tail of the repeats.
I hope you enjoyed this clip!
