New BOSS Pedals launched!
BOSS have launched two new, special edition pedals ahead of NAMM 2014, and revealed the latest addition to the ME multi-effects pedal series.

35 years of guitar pedal design have lead to this, two special edition, technologically advanced pedals with premium tone and an unmatched level of performance for guitarists.

The DS-1X Distortion and OD-1X Overdrive pedals and inspiring and ultra-responsive, with a road-ready, user-friendly design.

The ME multi-effects series has been updated with the ME-80. As tone-packed as a top studio, but behaving like a stompbox, the ME-80 uses eight multi-function footswitches and an expression pedal to bring you eight simultaneous effects categories.

You'll love the ME-80 live, it brings the noise fast and shapes in real-time. Thanks to the free Boss Tone Studio software, which lets you edit tones using your computer, it's great for production too.

Following the ME line, the ME-80 updates the ME-70 and takes key features from the flagship BOSS GT-100.
