Essential Pedal

Radoslaw L., 19.07.2017
I bought this pedal out of curiosity ..
After playing around with it, I realized how great this thing is. I ended up using it mainly in combination with the clean sound or slight overdrive.
It makes everything sound very sweet.
you can adjust the volume on it so when you hit the distortion .. you're not overpowering the previous sound.
This compressor really has no downside to it.. it looks great, it performs extremely well .. very easy to use.. doesn't alter your Tone.. and the price is great too.
Absolutely recommend it.

Thumbs up!

sanlight, 09.07.2017
In the midst of the hype around the Blend knob on compressors, the Asians of Boss continue to rely on the traditional controls such as Level, Attack, Ratio and Comp (Threshold). New is however the digital support with Multidimensional Processing (MDP), which calculates the optimal sweet spot depending on the setting.

I must say I was initially skeptical and at the same time curious. So far I had the TC Electronic Hypergravity, Mooer Yellow and the Seymour Duncan Vise Grip. So I ordered the pedal at the Thomann, unpacked and played. All controls at 12 o'clock.

Already at the first stop, I was enthusiastic about the sound. A sound with punch and clear definition. In contrast to the Mooer Yellow, where the entire sound spectrum is matched, the Boss can clearly hear the different layers (treble, midrange and bass) and get a contrast-rich and multi-dimensional sound. The quieter sounds and above all lower centers come perfectly into the foreground and the whole without too much noise.

Depending on your personal taste, you can adjust the sustain (via Ratio and Comp) with the controls, or you can give the attack more "snap" over the attack. All controllers are very effective and can be dosed easily. This was not the case, for example, with Hypergravity.

I do not miss the Blend-controller, because the Boss falsifies or the original sound hardly messes with the processing. This is always maintained, only the boss brings more clarity and enforcement to the overall picture. Even with light overdrives, the Boss can do quite well and gives them even more sustain and pressure. So the pedal remains with me almost always.

The only criticism for me is the clunky construction method, which is not up-to-date. In my small tight pedalboard I meet the fat Boss Boss occasionally while kicking, sorry.

All in all, I am totally impressed by the boss and can only advise anyone, also to the same! Thumbs up!
