This is great for creating unique patches like a clean tone when played lightly and get a chorused tone while playing hard or have a nice overdriven sound in mid-high frequencies and a heavy, high gain tone for the low end. The possibilities are endless.

  • Boss Tone Studio: The Boss tone studio gives you the ability to make amazing tone by an eye-catching Graphical Interface; it not only looks great but also works great. It is simple and effective. It shows the signal chain on the top and the patches on the side, and gives generous amount of area for tweaking the parameters.

  • New Rotary Speaker Model: Boss has introduced new Rotary Speaker model, which has a great tone. Boss has added the differences in the horn and the rotary speaker.
