Boss Announces FB-2 Feedback/Booster
Boss announced the FB-2 Feedbacker/Booster, combining an adjustable tone/gain boost with the ability to kick in a cranked-amp feedback sound.
The CHARACTER knob is designed to allow for variable adjustment over the tonality of the FB-2’s boost function. The counter-clockwise position is designed to provide a flat, clean boost that doesn’t change your tone. As it's moved towards the center position, the low is cut off and mids start to lift up gradually. Cranking the knob higher boosts mids while decreasing the treble, delivering fat tones that are suited for solo playing, Boss says. Additional sound-shaping controls include BOOST LEVEL and TONE. For instance, twisting the TONE knob higher at the lower position of the CHARACTER knob provides treble boost for presence and shimmer.
The FB-2 is also designed to provide the tone of natural guitar amp feedback in a stompbox. Traditional guitar feedback occurs when the amplifier is turned up loud enough to interact with the guitar’s string vibrations. The resulting feedback gives a warm expressive sustain, but requires loud volumes and careful physical interaction with the amp’s speakers.
The FB-2 gives players access to feedback by holding the pedal’s footswitch. Additionally, the FEEDBACK knob adjusts the time taken to boost the point of frequency to feedback.
Pricing & Availability:
The FB-2 Feedbacker/Booster will be available in November with an MSRP of $192.50.
