[NAMM] Boss: New Tuners & ME-70 Effect
Boss debuts a line of tuners, as well as the ME-70 Guitar Multiple Effects Processor products at this year's Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA.
The ME-70 is a floor-based processor that offers the compact design of a stompbox. With dedicated knobs for each section, a new, COSM® engine derived from the GT-10, and added EZ Tone and Phrase Loop features.
In addition to its Overdrive/Distortion section, the ME-70 now features a new Preamp section with the sound-modeling COSM engine for natural response and sound quality.
The ME-70's dedicated knobs for each effect section allow control over sound creation, just like a stompbox. The Phrase Loop function for sound-on-sound creation has up to 38 seconds of recording time. Its EZ Tone function allows for tone creation via simple effects presets.
TU-1000 Stage Tuner
Featuring a LED meter for visibility on dark stages or outdoors, the TU-1000 has a floorboard design to power up to six effects processors and includes two audio outputs, including one with direct signal flow.
TU-12EX Chromatic Tuner for Guitar and Bass
A direct descendant of the TU-12, the TU-12EX features the Boss needle-type meter and LED tuning guide. New features include a flat tuning function (up to six semitones lower), reference tone, auto-off, and Accu-Pitch™.
TU-12BW Chromatic Tuner for Brass and Wind
The TU-12BW features an expanded tuning range to correspond to a wide range of brass and wind instruments and the Boss needle-type meter and LED tuning guide.
TU-88 Micro Monitor and Tuner
The Boss TU-88 brings LCD tuning to musicians with a built-in headphone amplifier, so players can monitor or record sounds from stomp boxes or electric guitars with the built-in speaker simulator. Guitarists can also jam along with songs from a CD or MP3 player with the new mix input function.
The new Boss tuners will be available in early 2009.
