However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Endless Tonal Possibilities with Simple Controls

Hidden behind the pedal's simple four-knob interface is a complex multiband processor with numerous interlocking parameters - as you turn the knobs, multiple parameters are adjusted simultaneously. This innovative design allows a wide range of tone shaping possible with minimal effort, and thanks to the intelligent technology inside you'll always achieve perfect sounds at every setting - from subtle dynamic control to extreme compression.

Precision and Natural Sound

Compression is an indispensible tool for todays discerning bass players, and while there are many bass compressor pedals available the BC-1X stands alone as a completely unique product. Unlike conventional units that compress the fundamental tone and muffles the sound, the advanced BOSS MDP tech in the BC-1X provides perfectly natural compression that never overwhelms the character of your instrument.
