It’s easier to list professional guitarists who haven’t at some point had a Boss pedal at their feet – the company has made a name for itself as arguably the most well known guitar and bass effects pedal manufacturer in the world, and counts the most important recording artists and live acts among its fans.
Many make particularly good use of the likes of the Boss TU-3, a tuner pedal that has few peers and graces stages more often than not. Other single Boss pedals that have captured the imagination and defined iconic tones include the OD-1 (overdrive), CS-2 (compressor) and DS-1 (distortion).
Further than that, though, Boss also produces double pedals that open up a huge array of further tone-editing options, and multi-FX rigs that provide everything a guitarist or bassist needs in a metal chassis. The most popular of these larger setups include the Boss GT series of multi-effects and the much-acclaimed Boss Loop Station pedals, which have embedded themselves on the singer-songwriter landscape, most recently with the likes of Ed Sheeran.
Boss pedals barely need an introduction, but the full range is incredibly comprehensive, so why not take a look at what we have at DV247 and decide how you’ll next flesh out your pedal board?
