Boss Introduces PS-6 Harmonist Pedal

The PS-6 combines four pitch-shift effects and three-voice harmony in one pedal

Los Angeles, CA (September 1, 2010) — BOSS U.S. is pleased to announce the PS-6 Harmonist, combining four intelligent pitch-shift effects and three-voice harmony in one compact pedal. Equipped with a powerful, custom-designed DSP chip for superior performance, the PS-6 provides superb sound quality, ease of use, and professional pitch effects all under one hood.

Housed in the road-tested BOSS compact pedal chassis, the PS-6 offers four different effect modes: Harmony, Pitch Shifter, Detune, and the all-new Super Bend. An astounding amount of effects control over the four modes is possible with the easy-to-use, four-knob interface.

Super Bend creates wild three- and four-octave pitch sweeps, and pedal-bending effects. The automatic behavior of Super Bend is easily adjusted with SHIFT, RISE TIME, and FALL TIME controls. For realtime control, users can connect an optional BOSS FV-500L/H or Roland EV-5 expression pedal and use the PS-6 as a foot-controlled pedal-bend effect.

With the PS-6, it’s fast and simple for players to create rich three-voice harmony by selecting the desired major or minor key, and turning the SHIFT knob to 3-VOICE. In Pitch Shifter mode, players will enjoy extremely high-quality pitch shifts over a wide, +/- two-octave range. Detune mode provides chorus-like effects, which can be used in conjunction with three-voice harmony if desired.

The PS-6 will be available in September with an MSRP of $241.50.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
