Boss ME-20B
<strong>1) Briefly:</strong>
Well, as there is not a lot of opinions on the stuff I post. (I rpugne provide vingtime opinion on a very trick known).

It is a multi all digital, no rack, obviously, the sounds are not ditables other than the memory of the pedal.

Connectivity: low in, 2 outputs for alimenter2 amps, headphone jack, power supply 9V 300mA, headphone jack, jack to connect a pedal to navigate SECOND patches instead of the 3 pedals contraption.

What is missing? In my opinion, a DI jack subculture on a sound system.
Otherwise, everything is.

Casing Mtal that exudes solidity.

<strong>2) Effects:
</strong> 1st section of whas and deffreteur, octave. (5)
2nd compressors, distortion and ovardrives, synths. (6)
3rd: Envelopes: rverb, flanger, chorus, delay, phaser (7)
4-band equalizer +, efficient ...
+ A pedal that makes volume or wha (nothing else) touch.
+ A switchable bass boost by an additional pedal.
+ A "noise reductor" very effective.
+ Reliable tuner.

9 For I have wanted a DI ... (never happy the guy)

USE

The config is very very comfortable. We must spend time reading the manual (I speak for myself, not for the pros that kind of thingy)
Note about the manual, it is a bit "loose", we must navigate through the pages, was not easy easy.

However, once the trick pig this multi offers easy access to the main useful effects bassist. No need to manipulate hours accder programms to presets.

The edition of sounds, if it is not the easiest, is very Nevertheless fine. Thanks DIFFERENT delays, cool distos paramtrables as a single pedal, REALLY gives the sound you want, to the paramtrable volume. Really good.

9 for the complexity at first.


SOUND QUALITY

<strong>Effects:</strong>
if they are few, compared to what we find in Zoom Digitech or (yuck), this little object is nevertheless a multi-effects bass player. No harmonizer pitch, sounds from outer space and other inutilits which are more of a gadget is bassistequi cheek shredder (not kidding, any).
It will essentially. I think it's perfect.

<strong>Sound quality:
</strong> is studied for the live: simplicity robustness but the sound does not lil. Certainly, there is no distortion of the EBS ValveDrive 290 euros but are distos Nevertheless convincing. Enclosures (chorus, flanger ...) are not as cold as on low onreuses pedals.

I like the overdrive + live mix that clear bass sound with the distortion signal. Essential for some formations trio, nice compressor (I do not use with OUTRs rglages)

No "plop" in effect change.

Used with Precision Squier VM (micro Duncan Designed), a Jazz team of Wilkinson pickups, a Cort Artisan C4 MightyMite active pickups.

For the price (179 in Milonga and MusicStore; 177 Thomann), a is 10.

NOTICE GLOBAL

Used for a few weeks, this multi holds the high drage the series Digitech BP (rotten!), And the series B. Zoom (B1 etc ...).
It is a compelling dot bypass that does not dnature the sound of your babasse. I had Zoom, and bt hurts with these boxes ptites of ct bypass, the fanciful and tuner Noise Reductor. The "ZNR" Zoom has always permit on my amps sounds incongruous and never convinced me. No Noise Reductor the Boss.

With this Boss, you have a low possder & a decent amp that sound identity. (Note that I did not say crazy stuff.) Unlike most multis, we do not find here amp simulation. So no Marshall or Fender Bassman Superbass the inside nor Ampeg ...

Nothing esprer if you play with Jim Harley on a Stagg amp. (That said, I'm not a snob of zik and playing in bars and feasts of the zik, a Squier or Yam, a Cort, it works ...)

In short, this stuff is 10. I forgive him no DI because it has a good pedal while Mtal which is assignable to the volume or wah effect very very easily.

You could buy it. And do not make me ch *** with individual pedals, made bzzzzzzzzzzz from 2 requires a noise suppressor of a quality tuner, quality of power supply with lots of little son or p dal onreux board, on stage, when a jack makes me for ages ... which we'll pick

Honestly, we do not hear the difference with individual pedals Boss on stage ...

Gib*51's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The beefy Boss"

Boss ME-20B
30 user presets
Function "Enhance Bass" that boosts presence
Easy editing
Synthesizer effects, octave or "Defretter"
Power supply with 6 AA batteries
Non-electric power supplied optional

The ME 20 B includes all the effects a little bit a bassist wish.
The effects are reproducible ditables will. This is perfect for live with switches and expression pedal / volume.
It is positioned on the ground.
It is, I think digital.
The connection is complete without MIDI.

USE

Gnrale configuration very easy to access and operate the manual is simple.
The edition of the sounds is simple, changing and very simply modifying the sounds that go into a bank and can be adquate reminders as you want.

SOUND QUALITY

The effects are GPs my taste: for my part, I use the round pchu clean and sometimes a bit of reveb. and lightweight crunch.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I operated for about two years, but for a year, it no longer serves me for training: It is installed on my desktop and I work my bass with headphones on.
This is perfect for me because I work in silence and I have very agrables sound with excellent flexibility.

Work may be the only low rbarbatif sometimes but if the sound in the headphones is good you can play, and that's my case for hours without fatigue or weariness.
I no longer use my ME 20 B thus because my Ampeg SVT VR and my 610 HLF branch that I no longer tuner and a compressor: you plug, you make any rglage and you play. .... it's ok !!
All fawn, I do not see myself send sound with 300 W lamps in an office of 10 m2 ??? !!!!
The R / Q report is excellent.
I remake that choice without problem.

Function "Bass Enhance" that boosts presence
Easy editing
Synthesizer effects, octave or "Defretter"
Supply with 6 AA batteries
Optional power supply not supplied

The ME 20 B includes all the effects a little bit want a bassist.
Effects are editable and reproducible at will. This is perfect for live with switches and expression pedal / volume.
It is positioned on the ground.
It is, I think digital.
The connection is complete without MIDI.

UTILIZATION

General configuration very easy to access and simple to use manual.
The sound editing is simple, change and modify easily the sounds that go into a proper bank and can be recalled at will.

SOUND QUALITY

Effects are realistic for my taste: for my part, I use clean round and punchy, sometimes a bit of reveb. and light crunch.

OVERALL OPINION

I operated for about two years, but last year, it helps me more than for training: It is installed on my desktop and I bump my headphone on bass.
This is perfect for me because I work in silence and I sound very nice with excellent flexibility.

Bass work alone can sometimes be boring, but if the sound in the headphones is good you can play, and that's my case for hours without fatigue or weariness.
I no longer use my ME 20 B thus because on my Ampeg SVT 610 HLF my VR and I do more than one branch tuner and a compressor: you branches, you do any setting and you play ... it's ok ..!
In any case, I do not see myself sending her with 300 W lamps in an office of 10 m2???!!
Report R / Q is excellent.
I remake that choice without problem.

Boss ME-20B
See the website or description Audiofanzine Boss ..... celon me good shuffled between analog and numrique!

UTILIZATION

2 ways to operate, either by assigning to each effect pedals pedals as individually or in memory mode prprogramm.Facilit dconcertante a programming ... the Manual Tres intuitif.Le is basic but not very useful in fact.

SOUND QUALITY

The effect seems to have a clean signature Boss.Certain however should not be pushed fond.La sound is there a mprandre with individual effects Boss.Test with my Musicman 5 c. and my practice amp 65w.J 'I hate the essay live with my stack!! It bodes well .... the creamy overdrive is desired, the octave sounds very much like and wha chorus, delay ....

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three days and I'm still PERIOD test but I like what I discovering .... it has the advantage of being is a p DALI MULTI ... effects must be solid, practical, compact, easy to approach ... etc. .... But above all, finally a pdalier that does not amphase on modlisations amp like any other .... more when your amp sounds dja ....... Thanks Boss!
