A luxury, But fun!

Pete A., 07.06.2017
I got this this one on a bit of a whim.

Some people look down on Boss stuff as all being very mediocre while others swear by them. Me I like to judge every brand and every pedal on there own merit.

For the majority I've enjoyed using Boss stuff as all of it is built to last! And the sounds are generally of a good standard (not been a fan of there distortion pedals from the few I tried). And maybe another slight negative would be some of the competition in some cases have maybe more flexibility.

As for the MO-2, I listened to some demos and thought it sounded pretty cool and... it does. It can do a pretty good organ sound which was one of the things that attracted me to it and I've kind of locked with that as I can mix it into my sound at times.

However it can do loads of weird! and wonderful things, But how often are you gonna use them.

I cant knock the pedal for what it does as it does a good job. Suppose it comes down to your situation and what kind of music your trying to do and also if your pedal board can accommodate the space.

A new boss

Jose948, 23.05.2013
This pedal classifies Boss in his "other" section .... well .... if it were to qualify it would be a kind of mixture between "detune" effect and pitch shifter in octave high position ...... Or low, depending on the case. Naturally, it adds harmonics to the sound giving more guitar richness. The effect has some latency or delay with respect to the dry signal .... more or less as a pitch shifter ..... however .... the sound is smoother and stable than in a conventional harmonizer ... .... making pizzicato on the strings gives us a sound similar to that of the laser blades of the films ...
Mode 1 gives us harmonics only in the high part ... basically like a high octave ..... eliminating the low octave of the guitar.
Mode 2 has the full natural spectrum of the guitar, plus harmonics an octave up.
Mode 3 works much like a p. Shifter in position 1 octave down.
In stereo .... the sound, far from being more blurred .... is more enhanced.
The detune button intensifies and gives richness to the sound when we use the solo pedal ... without other modulation pedals .... giving the guitar certain sound to the keyboard. In combination with other pedals such as chorus or flangers ... a small amount of effect is sufficient to enhance all the harmonic content of the instrument.
In short .... it is a good pedal ..... and each one can investigate which sound is better for what he performs .... and combines well with other effects .... the only drawback would be to be Willing to spend the euros it costs.
