Los Angeles, CA (January 22, 2015) -- BOSS is pleased to announce the ES-8 Effects Switching System, an advanced audio command center for pedalboards. Powered by BOSS’ extensive knowledge in effects control, the ES-8 enables previously unattained levels of creativity and expression for pro and high-end users. Featuring eight audio loops, flexible routing options, and much more, the ES-8 delivers transparent sound and programmable switching for all types of stompbox effects.
The innovative ES-8 represents a major leap “out of the box” from standard loop switchers, offering unprecedented capability without sacrificing sound quality. The audio path has been developed for pure signal transfer to preserve tone, and the integrated switches provide robust, reliable performance show after show. Additionally, the system offers an impressive range of control features that go far beyond typical pedalboard switching systems.
Combining far-reaching flexibility with total freedom of expression, the ES-8 gives demanding players a powerful centralized tool for building their dream pedal-switching rig. Packed with a wealth of advanced functionality, the ES-8 satisfies the needs of serious working musicians with detailed attention to often-requested features and functions.
BOSS is pleased to announce the BB-1X Bass Driver, a special edition compact pedal that provides high-quality tones for bass players. Featuring unique BOSS technology, the BB-1X delivers next-generation performance with refined sound, exceptional versatility, and pro connectivity.
At the 2014 Winter NAMM Show, BOSS released the OD-1X Overdrive and DS-1X Distortion pedals to universal praise from guitarists. The BB-1X Bass Driver now brings the groundbreaking sound innovations of the X series to all bass players.
Crafted specifically for bass, the BB-1X offers a wide range of natural, expressive tones with an unmatched level of clarity and responsiveness. Low and High knobs provide expansive tone-shaping capability, while the Blend knob allows users to freely mix their unprocessed bass sound with the overdrive tone. The BB-1X is equipped with a standard output for driving a bass amplifier, as well as a 1/4-inch TRS line output for sending a balanced signal direct to a mixing console.
