« Decent. »

Published on 06/30/11 at 12:20
Boss has been pretty much the leader in guitar guitars for the last 30+ years. They have built decent sounding pedals, some winners and some losers, but most of there units have been very low priced. This has been a policy that has pretty much kept them on top of the pedal market heap for many years.

This pedal is a decently sounding and pretty inexpensively priced which allows many guitarist to try out this unit. The pedal have four control knobs that control the EQ of the pedal. Along with a sub control behind the filter knob that allows control of the highs and lows of the filter.

SOUND QUALITY

This pedal is great for subtle chorus all the way up to a lush almost flanger type tones. This pedal has a decent range of motion with the EQ but nothing that is like the Tc Electronics corona chorus. Comparable to that pedal this thing is clinker box that doesn't have the sweet warm that the Corona has.

I like using this pedal in a high gain amp for some good lead chorus lines that has a enough modulation to cover some of the open gaps in the electric guitars distortion range. This give s more sustain in the single notes lead lines and fills in a lot of the tonal gaps.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these pedals come in at around $99, which is a great price for a decent sounding pedal. I would argue that the best priced chorus pedal on the market is the little yellow one from MXR. That one is priced around $80 and it is tru bypass which this pedal is not. You can shell out another $30 and get the Corona from TC Electronics and have a much more usable and warm pedal.
