The Pros:Durable build can handle being brought out at practices and to gigs. Reliable, trouble-free functionality that just works. Nice variety of tones adjustable for the perfect distortion for a given song.

Additionally, the OS-2 sports a tough, compact design.
The OS-2's color knob allows users to adjust from maximum overdrive to maximum distortion with a great number of variations in between, offering a high degree of customization. Furthermore, its drive and tone knobs provide control over the OS-2's 'heaviness' and tone, respectively; this allows the OS-2 to produce both heavily distorted sound and a more subtle distortion/overdrive. Meanwhile, the OS-2's durable build and compact size makes it highly portable.

as compact as you can make a pedal while still making it easy to use
responds to pedal press instantly without any pops or snaps
setting the knobs is fairly intuitive, doesn't take a lot of guess work to get exactly what you want out of it
