Favorite BOSS pedal.

Post by Azentzvox » Sat Jul 04, 2020 9:49 pm

Okay everyone. Time to be honest. Boss pedals get a lot of hate but let’s be real we all secretly have a few that we love and rely on. Tell us what Boss pedal/pedals do you love? And why

For me it’s the Chorus CE-2 and the Metal Zone MT-2 (trust me there is one or 2 perfect settings on it!)

SD-1 for me. Boss makes solid stuff all around. I could probably be very happy with an all Boss pedalboard.

I almost do have an all Boss pedalboard.

I will say BD-2. It's always on. It always nicely colours the nearly-clean or dirty sound, it responds nicely to playing dynamics.

Whoa, that's a tough one! :derp:
I love all of my Boss pedals and I even love some I don't even own.
I pick the BF-2 with PS-3 and OC-2 beeing strong contenders.

I've owned a few over the years...my favourite and most used is probably the GE7 EQ. :)

Nothing secret about my love of Boss pedals and all the new Waza pedals are superb. DM-2w, CE-2w, VB-2w, DC-2w and the new DD-8 are all superb.

Another for the SD-1. Honestly, people who pooh-pooh BOSS pedals are just wankers. They have a few stinkers like the TR-2, but they're almost all adequate to outstanding, and they have one of the best enclosure designs around.
This is an excellent rectangle

Without any doubt it's the PN-2, followed by the FZ-2 and FRV-1

Boss OS-2. It's an overdrive and distortion and you can blend them, plus you get a tone control. It can go from a very light boost to blow torch. I bought mine in 1990 and have always found a use for it. No frills, no funny adapters, like two pedals in one. Super useful.

My RV-6 is really doing it for me at the moment.

The PN-2 is great fun too, but not on a board currently.

Oh, and I have a decades-old TU-2 that refuses to die.

Never owned a Boss dirt pedal. My bandmate has a modded SD-1 that sounds great though.
