Best grab & go rhythm machine available
Erky32, 25.04.2020
I have tried many accompaniment machines from way back with Alesis SR16, korg mini, both Beatbuddies, Trios, SDrum, Finhols, looper add-on drummachines, etc as well as manual Kickpedal & cajon, or homemade or commercial stomp boxes. Whether for home use, or gigging - this one, to me, is the best. It is small, light easy portable , battery or plugin power, can be DI into PA or amp. For acoustic just use as it comes - you can even do cafe gig if plugged into your PA. It's very intuitive and does what you expect it to do and the rhythm patterns suit all genre of music - styles are easy to create on the hoof, but also 50 memory slots gives a good selection for prepreparation for a performance. It is well made so all is good! - BUT - I look forward to the 2nd Generation which I would ask/hope includes a pedal option for "fills" to break the monotony, an option to override the speaker mute when DI-ed (I wish this existed on more low power amps to use as monitors), and thirdly built-in battery rechargability. They're not cheap to buy, such embelishments probably come at a cost - but I would pay a little extra for perfection! Well done Boss!

Practical accessory
AndiBass EST, 30.03.2020
I needed easy-to operate drum machine to support practicing at home and to create backtracks to my band members. I plan to use the device some rare occasions when performing.

After couple of months I can say the device met my expectations. There are certain limitations but I was aware of them. Use of foot-switch eases to operate hands-on-the-instrument.

Pros:
- good price
- large variety of pre-programmed rhythm patterns
- easy to operate
- sounds are superb
Cons:
- lacks possibility to create and save A-B parts for one song
- lacks possibility to create custom rhythms from the scratch

Overall opinion. I strongly recommend the device if You need it for home practicing and if You are looking for simple addition to Your acoustic guitar or folk music playing.
