Boss made this pedal back in 1987 and finished manufacturing of in in 1992. This pedal wasn't as big a hit to guitar players as it was to bass players. This pedal would set the limit on frequencies allow to pass through your signal. The effect would be more adopted by bass because the bass guitar would need more envelop filters effects than a guitarist would need to keep in those frequencies that would keep the low end humming and the highs to be passed through.

This pedal is not really that great for guitarist even though it was marketed in that way. This pedal is a filter in terms of how it allows certain frequencies to pass through and keep certain ones. The tone control would be one of the most important control knobs on this pedal because of the wide array of tones that this knob would control.

You can try this pedal out with any guitar and see how you like it. It will not be something that most guitarist will ever need or even care to try because it just doesn't do much for the guitar player.


These pedal are now discontinued. The used market is the only way to go now. They have them all the time on ebay. They are fairly cheap to own. They have revised the pedal but they marketed it towards the bass players. So they usually have a "B" on the name of the pedal.
