STORY
Eight Million Pedals Strong
Philosophy
Originality
Bassists Welcome
From the beginning, BOSS has built the
best pedals by adhering to these key
principles: ➀ Reliable aluminum die cast
bodies. ➁ Pedal switches that withstand
the 100,000-repetition durability test.
➂ FET switches to eliminate the clicking
noise of conventional mechanical switches.
➃ Non-slip rubber bases. ➄ Easy-to-install
battery compartments. ➅ LED indicators.
➆ Battery and AC power.
Beyond standard effects, BOSS is famous
for its unique and unusual stompboxes,
such as the SG-1 Slow Gear, VB-2 Vibrato,
and, most recently, the SYB-5 analogmodeling bass synthesizer pedal.
Not just for guitarists, BOSS has a range of
effects built specifically for bass players. So
plug in, and anchor your music with solid,
high-impact effects that are customtailored for low frequencies.

Benchmark Overdrive & Distortion
New-Breed Overdrive
BOSS’s original overdrive, the OD-1, was
famous for its rich, warm, and detailed sound.
That legacy carried forward to the popular
SD-1 and OD-3, and now to the BD-series —
the new standard in Overdrive processing.
Likewise, BOSS’s acclaimed DS-1 distortion
pedal evolved to the DS-2, which paved the
way for today’s benchmark distortion effect,
the MD-2.
Adding to the legacy of great BOSS overdrives
(such as the OD and DS series), the BD-2 and
MD-2 represent the new standard in
overdrive/distortion effects. Try them soon!
BD-2: The BD-2 responds expressively to
performance dynamics, including factors such
as the guitarist’s picking attack, touch, and
volume/tone settings.
MD-2: The MD-2 can be extremely distorted
with fat and deep characteristics, while not
obliterating the original guitar tone.

top of GT line, the GT-PRO provides 44 effects categories, with
200 preset- and 200 user-patch locations. Choose from
compressors, overdrives, delays, reverbs, choruses, EQs,
wahs, and dozens of other BOSS-quality effects — including a
sitar and acoustic guitar emulator onboard.
■ Meticulous COSM Editing
■ Flexible Effects Chain
I/O flexibility is the name of the game with the GT-PRO, as it
also provides four 1/4-inch analog audio outputs, a pair of
balanced XLR outputs, and three pairs of effects send/returns.
If you wish to add some serious settings for the stage
environments, you can split the signals independently to a
couple of guitar amps and go to the PA with the stereo Sub
Outs at the same time.
The GT-PRO crushes the competition with its unique and
powerful COSM editing. Thanks to BOSS’s advanced physical
modeling, you take complete control over your tone by
constructing your virtual rig from scratch, including the choice
of speaker types, microphone amp position, and more.
Prepare to be impressed with the GT-PRO’s flexible effects
chain. Internally, the 15 effects blocks can be

Having the freedom to configure the effects chain in any order you wish is one of

■ Bass Effects with COSM modeling
The GT-6B is a pro-caliber floor-based processor for bass, with
COSM Bass Amp Modeling, modeled compression, plus other
“must-have” effects such as COSM overdrive/distortion, COSM
wah, and reverb/delay. There’s also a true analog bypass, and
XLR and digital outputs with 24-bit converters for recording
applications, providing uncompromised sound quality.
In addition to its amazing amp models, the GT-6B provides a
world-class lineup of effects, including COSM-powered
compression effects modeled after four famous compressors.
Other effects include Auto Slap, sound-on-sound looping, and
BOSS's best synth-bass sounds with incredible tracking.

The GT-6B provides six authentic COSM bass amp models,
recreating the tone and characteristics of some of the greatest
bass amps and speaker cabinets in history. Why settle for just
one bass amp sound when you can have the power of six
classics in one convenient box?

For recording flexibility, the BR provides 192 V-Tracks (16 V-Tracks
per primary track), allowing you to lay down as many guitar solos or
vocal takes as needed. Once finished, you can select any 12 tracks for
playback — plenty of room for all your instruments and overdubs.
You can also get pristine sound quality and the benefit of
non-destructive editing.

pristine sound quality and the benefit of non-destructive editing.

Once a musical instrument generates sound vibrations, it reaches the human ear through various mediating objects, each of which significantly affects the sound.
The material and configuration of the instrument, the electric/electronic/magnetic amplifying system, the air and the reverberation of the room all affect the final sound.
Sound modeling, the latest DSP technology, “virtually” reconstructs these objects. Roland’s breakthrough Composite Object Sound Modeling (COSM) uses the advantages of
multiple modeling methods and succeeds in accurately emulating existing sounds, as well as producing sounds that have never before been created.
