Boss ME-20
Multi-effects simple and effective, most at the end of the foot.
Ditions of complex fans, go your way ...

UTILIZATION

A breeze!
Intuitive and empty. The manual will come out of the box only on rare occasions, in order to perfect his knowledge of the device.

SOUND QUALITY

It respects and complements an amplification "all lamps" (Laney-Marshall-Fender).

OVERALL OPINION

It is a return Russia to the multi APRS have expressed moult chaining effects "boutique" true bypass.
Ended the boycott of the electronics, must finally admit that it can find its place in your configuration.

Boss ME-20
Everything has been said on previous opinions. I would add just turn solid and reassuring.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, if you took a moment to read the manual. The "easy" is very useful because it allows us to approach quickly the type of sound can be searched and then refine. Apart from selecting the type of effect you want change, it works as separate pedals. The big advantage will be the memory (30 memories)

SOUND QUALITY

The OD are to my taste and allow to find a warm sound of harmonics. The compressor is excellent. The distortions are, in my opinion, a tone lower: a little loud (but this also depends on the amp that is used) The modulations seem very suitable for a multi-purpose. The delay and reverb are very powerful words, the compact and quality quite acceptable given the volume and price of the beast. The difference compared to individual pedals seems very low (at least those I could compare to having, namely CS2 compressor and delay DD2. Ditto for the OD that the heat of my TS10 but that grows more below)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for one month I have a few individual pedals and a multi purpose (Tonelab) The big advantage of this product is its simplicity and the possibility of a multi effects without modeling (as ToneLab) and which distorts not the sound of his favorite amp. This is by far my favorite multi all the ones I used: - simplicity - his guitar and amp undenatured - very nice price! - Volume and reduced size compared to an equivalent set of pedals (not to mention budget) In short, you understand ... I like the BOSS He did not play it ... remains in sobriety ... but ensures at what he does. That he ask for? I note 9 for perfection does not exist ...
Small addition of 7 December 2010: I always corny. Although it sounds worse than my individual pedals, I must admit that when I go out ... I took it to him. I've never been disappointed by the Boss. I especially wanted to add that I leave the master level between 15 and 20 max: the sound is much cleaner at all levels, breath ... very small (it's true that I do not use large distortion), and OD ... with a tube amp ... should not complain ... it sounds very correct.
In short, I'm still happy.

Well ... I will not add on what t say. It is what pdalier.
For curiosities I connected to my Takamine electro f santa with pramplis lamp.
Frankly, I've tried to pdalier acoustic. C'tait of crap! It transforms my guitar "cricrin" luxury.
The depth and get prsence phnomnal in rverbes and chorus. Super sound! Y'en may be sacandale who will cry, but I do not care!
Pdalier this is great for acoustic ... essay ... and give me some news! For cons, the saturation ... it's hot ... it's the only rgler "BMOL" I inflicts!
Congratulations Boss!

Boss ME-20
The pedal BOSS ME-20 pedal has three sounds, each time with 4-5 or 6 types of sounds. Eg. for the distortion pedal was: ovedrive, blues, distortion, metal, fuzz and compressor.
Programming and editing of new sounds and very easy. It is true that for a good sound optenir we must control the effects of understanding are, therefore, have music.

UTILIZATION

First use fairly complicated but the difficulty part after 15 minutes of research and trial and error. However I advice to read the entire manual before embarking on the programming of the pedal.

For live, this pedal is very convenient and quite sufficient for a guitarist. ONE has to change the default sound bank, it must be down and pressed a button. Personally I bought a BOSS pedal schedule that is used to change banks at the foot and spent a single player.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound quality and brilliant. All the effects are interesting.

OVERALL OPINION

For 6 months. Jai already done with 20 and I find trps practice.

Boss ME-20
Effects classs into three types: heavy distortion (overdrive, blues, distortion, mtal, fuzz, compression), stains (chorus, tremolo, flanger, ...) and delays (delay and r verb). Case mtal trs solid and compact. PDAL volume / wah of good quality. Intgr a tuner that allows as many of pedals to get in bypass. Predict transformer included (why I was 9 / 10)

UTILIZATION

We start with a neutral sound by putting all the knobs 25 (on a scale of 0 50). Then we add what you want by combining the effects. The possibilities are endless. It can record sounds into 10 banks of three notes each. The nice thing is that you can add on each of the wah sound by pressing the volume pedals forward.
The sounds of factories in the state are inutitisables because they are not heels in volume (hello ears the first time you press the pedals of a mtal).
Impractical: to move from one bank to another it must be down and press the buttons up or down (it can be done at the bottom but through three difficult manipulations in concert. Manir Of all three sounds in a piece is sufficient in 99% of cases.
To bypass it to press the pedals simultanment 1 and 2. It is good with a little practice but beware of wide shoes that are the same thing when you just want a change (VCU my last concert, I find myself in clean instead of a distortion )
For my part I organized sounds as follows:
Bank March 1
In each bank the first sound is neutral which allows me to have the sound of my amp without dnatur. The following two sounds I use brown (chorus, delay, tremolo ,...). I use these three banks in combination with the three channels of my amp (clean, drive, more drive) via the footswitch the amp here so it takes precedence.
Bank 4 and Bank 8:
Buffer zones that allow me to make combinations for some special pieces.
Bank May 7
In each bank the first sound is neutral and the other two are the big crunch of distortion. I use these three banks on the clean channel of my amp and pedals, which is the premium. These banks also serve me if I sound plugs (an amp that has come loose live ...)
9 Bank and Bank 10:
Backup area of ​​my sounds prfrs

SOUND QUALITY

I play PRS SE and Fender Hot Rod Deluxe with limits SERIES HP vintage 30.
The colors (well I call this a Manir) trs well
The delays: nickel
The distorted sounds: a bit messy for some but overall still a honnte for a multi-effects and big sound are my priori.
I had two korg before and I find overall sound warmer, softer, less slamming.

OVERALL OPINION

So I use the pedals to a large majority in color rear plan sounds original couple of my amp / guitar with this in mind it is perfect for me (before I had a Korg AX3000G with which I took myself cabbage and with modlisations passed amp sounds original stuff). The price is right trs.
I therefore advise those who privilgient their amp / hp technology numriques of accumulation. Otherwise it is better to enter higher (much higher) to the Tonelab for example.
I wanted a simple pedals that is just an add my set and I found, so with the exprience, I would do this choice.

Boss ME-20
This is a multi-effects pedal boss basic practice with many small effects
that looks really very strong in its metal case

UTILIZATION

The configuration is fairly simple to use one is a little Pardu at first but we quickly
regarding the wha-wha just press strongly enough the top of the pedal for Inrush g mit ca time to understand the absence of manual
I am trying to 9 g becaufe not have the manual but with Apparently I'm a single case so I put 10
At the level buttons is like the case they are relatively resistant lair

SOUND QUALITY

# At the level of distortion / overdrive pedal that provides:
-A classic overdrive (not great)
-Blues sound (not great either
-Distortion (not bad)
A distortion-type metal (with the right setup is a way to give something really good)
A-fuzz
-A compressor (g then was really surprised the sound is perfect compressor + reverb = DIRE STRAITS perfect what)

# There are 5 effects then ca vow to see jmen is honestly so much ba jpeu say anything
-Choruz
-Phaser
Flanger-
-Tremolo
Rotary-

# And the main strength of the delay pedal reverb and master as well very clean in perfect distortion.

# The expression pedal that manages the volume and wha-wha good quality too

OVERALL OPINION

This pedal is quite versatile
Yes it has fewer features, or other effect pedal in the same line taken (I think the zoom G2-1) but BOSS set the quality built-in effects s
I repeated this pedal is really very strong
The price quality ratio is a very good pedal for those who like me can not afford to buy everything spare.
It can satisfy any quitar (except of course the metal it shows the extreme limits)
Now it's your turn to try and judge by yourself in a shop I remember as a pedal c intrument amp AC or buy in store never ordered on the net c TFW cheaper but you so may be deus.
