Best retro (back to basics) guitar multi-fx!!
Asterios, 17.04.2018
I've chosen Boss ME-80 for a main simple reason: You can edit everything you like with physical knobs on panel! That's it! No hidden screen menus! Is that simple and straightforth!!
Aside this, is a high quallity guitar multi effects unit!
So, let's see the main pros & cons:

Pros:
Hands on operation (back to basics!)
Quallity of amps & effects (9 COSM amps, 8 categories of effects)
Looper & freeze function!
Memory & manual mode!

Cons:
Just one con (for me!)
There is only an "old school" 2 digits small screen, so it's not so easy to recognize presets names!

Conclusion: A fantastic retro "old school" guitar fx unit with all controls given clearly on panel!! Highly recommended, if you like this direct style-function!

Intuitive, Easy to Navigate, Great Value.

Firstly, I would say ditch ,most of the factory presets and create your own sounds! Clearly they are for demonstrative purposes and not generally for real world use! The amount of tones and effects you can access is only limited by your own imagination or input, once you get to grips with how it works, (and that doesn’t take long), you can set the sounds you want for your needs. Great for home recording and home rehearsal as the headphone input means you can set sounds without annoying the neighbors. For gigging some tweaking is required as you would expect as when you add amps and volume the dynamics change but no big problem. The unit is useful as it can be easily carried around unlike a huge pedal board and can be D/I’d to a PA when you don’t have access or room to carry an amp, the amp modeling works pretty good. Overall a great buy, I would say!
