Breakthrough: Overview of New Boss Effect Pedals and Amps for 2014

Below, check out an overview of Boss' new products for 2014.

From the company:

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.

We're pouring our insatiable musical curiosity and the expertise we've honed since launching our first product in 1976 into becoming a company that continuously creates innovative sounds. All so that musicians can express themselves more freely through that life-changing medium of music.

At Boss, we don't fear failure. We fear standing still. We're breaking through to recreate ourselves.
