Boss has always been about helping musicians make killer music. But stability is overrated, and brand boredom is the kiss of death. That's why we're completely revamping our game, never resting on our laurels or rehashing old ideas.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Boss VE-2 Vocal Harmonist pedal (or my feet?). And once I tried it, I really didn’t want to part with it. Aside from adding cool vocal harmonies, reverb and delay to my voice, well, it’s just fun. I can sound like a whole chorus now if I want to!
A certain school of guitarists have adopted the mantra “WWJD,” which, of course, means “What Would Jimi Dig?”
I have no doubt that if Hendrix were still alive and jamming, he’d be all over the Boss GP-10 Guitar Processor for its powerful combination of traditional tones, synth textures and stringed instrument emulations as well as for its instant access to alternate tunings and numerous other features.
Boss has announced the RC-1 Loop Station, the new entry-level model in the company’s lineup of dedicated loop recording devices. Battery-powered and affordable, the RC-1’s straightforward operation makes it easier than ever for guitarists, bassists and other musicians to incorporate the fun of looping into their live performances and practice sessions.
Boss has announced its Waza Craft series, a new line of special edition compact pedals that offers players the ultimate BOSS tone experience. The debut of the Waza Craft series includes the SD-1W Super Overdrive, BD-2W Blues Driver, and DM-2W Delay.
Since the late Seventies, thousands of guitarists have relied on a dependable pair of orange and yellow Boss stomp boxes known respectively as the DS-1 Distortion and OD-1 Overdrive.
These pedals have their own distinct sonic character, and with their low-noise performance, dynamic response and tonal versatility, they are significantly expanded versions of two of the most beloved compact pedals of all time.
Equipped with a huge selection of top-quality COSM amps and effects, 1/4-inch and XLR inputs and much more, the compact GT-001 brings flagship BOSS guitar tones and advanced recording features to any home studio or mobile setup.
The Guitar World crew visited the Roland/Boss booth — it's actually a large room with several sections and a stage — during the 2014 Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. We were introduced to several new items from the company, including the ME-80 Guitar Multiple Effects processor. Be sure to check out our video below!
