Excellent pedal
EnuffZNuff, 10.03.2020
Delivered quickly - great price. The pedal is excellent, I've a number of synth pedals - and this one really has some interesting sounds in it. It tracks really well, it doesn't appear to glitch at all. It always puts a smile on my face! I showed it to my nephew, and he was completely hooked! I didn't see him for the afternoon :-) Another excellent pedal from Boss, and an simple an easy purchase from Thomann

Great fun- but lack of presets could be an issue.
drdolittle, 13.05.2020
This is an absolute joy to play around with and definitely opens up new creative avenues!

Pros: Huge range of sounds and the sensitivity, responsiveness and lack of latency are amazing.

Cons: There are no presets and with internal and external dials for each control that adds to a lot of fiddling around.
Also YOU REALLY NEED AN EXPRESSION PEDAL to make the best use of the SY-1. (It works well with my moog pedal).

I briefly contemplated 3 stars for these last issues- but it would not have been a fair score as this unit really is incredible in how it can completely transform your sound in real time! Would definitely recommend.

A-mazing!
Trubshaw, 23.10.2020
Some extraordinary sounds from this pedal - and the tracking? Incredible. You just don't notice any delay from pick to speaker. Forget any of those Roland pickups or triggers. If this isn't enough for you get the bigger brothers. Truly lush.
