Boss ME-5
Overdrives, distos

Technology numrique 1st gnration
Audio / MIDI / headset
FX Loop External


simple configuration. Simple programming but sometimes without subtilis. Manuel more than complete.


Good, and Overdrives distos have made significant progress since (POD pedals lamp) and it is better to forget both the numrique not suitable such effects ME5 (my pedals SD-1 Japan is much more subtle on this crneau). Otherwise, the rest, the effects have not lost their effectiveness.
J'apprcie particulirement reverb "plate", the delay, unfortunately limits 500 ms, the chorus, noise gate (with rgler subtilis)
Levels rglages effects are not always the finest, but can get good sound, including sound (yes, I use it for audio too).
The job is assured.


Used since ... 25 years. ciblutilis and not a wrinkle on its strengths (forget distos). Unlike Jeancathy, I find trs robust (buttons and switches), except for the stickers that tend to block in case of overheating

At 80 euros occasion is a gift for replacing at least three four pedals

The setup is a little difficult to maneuver because you have to go into effect each section to find the right sound for everyone ... for those who love programming!

the manual is clear enough there at the end of the manual setting for an array of sounds that we will customize a pencil to write to remember in case the battery used to store the parameters would hs.


Contrary to what has been said in other post, I find that very convincing disto are, I have a pedal boss ds 2 etr I much prefer the sound of an open regime dito or disto 2 settles a bit more app

Other effects are very good, nothing wrong the above.

I use a ramjet, a godin st 4 I sell elsewhere!, Guitar Tanglewood TW 45dlx, which is not very suitable for the amp Attax 100 h & k, and finally my last purchase which I do 'm not a little proud Vigier Excalibur Ultra, which I made a post in the relevant field.

I do not like are too saturated, big sound dirty kind, I prefer saturations précisises style guitar hero. Otherwise I'm not refractory to all styles, because that's how it is changing in music. (Ie be eclectic).


that's about 15 years since I use it, certainly he n'st not all young but look at some multi effect today, he would always have its place among the muti effect of good quality.

If I had to change one day this kind of device I choose I can be the 70 or why not gt 8 or 10, but as long as I keep working!
