Boss and Roland Announce Fall 2011 New Products
Los Angeles, CA (September 19, 2011) -- Boss and Roland introduce the FB-2 Feedbacker/Booster Pedal, BC-2 Combo Drive Compact Pedal, RC-300 Loop Station, and R-26 Portable Recorder.

FB-2 Feedbacker/Booster Pedal
Combining an adjustable tone/gain boost with the ability to kick in a natural cranked-amp feedback sound at will, the FB-2 is a unique stompbox that gives guitarists a world of new expressive possibilities.

  • Wide tonal variety, from flat, clean boost to powerful mid-boost and bright, clear treble boost
  • Boost characteristics can be changed continuously and smoothly from one knob
  • Responds expressively and accurately to picking nuances, even at high-boost settings
  • Versatile tone, simple operation, and low noise
  • Advanced Feedback function provides smooth and natural amp feedback

BC-2 Combo Drive Compact Pedal
Just as the ST-2 Power Stack brought the sound of a raging stack amp to pedalboards everywhere, the BC-2 now gives players classic British combo amp tone in a convenient stompbox.

  • Wide range of tones with a single knob—from classic crisp clean and punchy crunch to creamy overdrive with long sustain and beyond
  • Natural and dynamic response to picking nuance at any knob position
  • Provides warm combo tones and authentic combo-amp cabinet resonance
