I've got a Boss blues overdrive pedal that one of my dad's bandmates gave to me a long time ago, I just found it today and decided to give it a try, but when I turn it on it just cuts my volume and makes background noise. I fiddled around with the knobs and it didn't do much. I'm 99% sure I have the right power adapter for it. Anyone have a clip of what this pedal is supposed to do, or any ideas of what might be wrong?

Try and use a new battery with it, sounds like some type of power problem?

I remember it working back then though....

Yeah, this one definitely doesn't do what the one on the bossus website does.

Well considering the BD-2 is one of the single greatest things ever manufactured, if you're not satisfied with it, it must be broken. As for the power source, if it was made before '97 it might need may need a BOSS ACA adapter and if it's made after '97, it'll need a PSA adapter.
