The Synth Which Empowers The Player

This pedal is a revolution for guitarists, for years we have sought out methods of creating synth-like tones via the instrument we know so well.

The alternative was to buy synth keyboards and learn how to play them which is not only expensive but also limited the creative possibilities to an instrument format we were unfamiliar with. There were attempts to solve this issue first with elaborate guitar & synth combinations requiring the user to buy a purpose-made guitar (or upgrade their existing guitars with new additions) and some pedals went quite far in solving latency issues however most were either very complicated to use of had great but limited tones available.

Somehow this tiny BOSS compact pedal has answered all of these issues, the tracking/latency is seemingly non-existent without the need to add extra pickups to your guitar, the tones a hugely varied yet the pedal has the most intuitive/simple layouts we’ve ever seen on a pedal like this and every tone sounds amazing.

It’s no wonder that these are almost always sold out as everyone wants one.
