6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

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 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 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.

Incredible Range of Reverbs

Offering an extensive range of modulations to choose from, the Boss MD-500 Pedal delivers everything from classic chorus, flange, and phaser, to the dynamic dimension, rotary, and filter effects. The pedal also features original Boss effects, with the slicer providing the effect from their SL-20 slicer pedal, and the overtone delivering their MO-2 Multi Overtone Pedals Sound. Offering 12 modes and a total of 28 different algorithms, the Boss pedal refreshes the standard modulations with their advanced prime algorithms, enhancing their expression, extending the tonal range, and maximising transparency.

Dual Modulations & Insert Loop Function

Set the pedal in A/B simul mode to use 2 modulation patches simultaneously, opening a range of tonal possibilities. Run the two mods in series or parallel, expanding the pedals tone-shaping capabilities. An external loop is also featured on the pedal, providing the ability to connect a gain or drive pedal to provide extra tonal possibilities. Set the effects order to create a range of different tones, setting the drive/gain pedal before, after, or in between the two modulation effects.

Intuitive Control Setup

Boss’ MD-500 is designed to deliver incredible creative expression and performance flexibility, ensuring players can easily adjust parameters for simple changes or extensive adjustments. Its large LCD display ensures players can clearly see patch names, delay times, and other important information, making it easy to adjust parameters and advanced control features. Its freely assignable switches and extensive support for real-time control is perfect for a range of applications, and the MIDI I/O provides more creative possibilities and deep control options. Connect the modulator to your computer, via the USB port, and use the free MD-500 editor/librarian for remote editing, patch backup, and more.
