    Comments about Boss ES-8 Effects Switching System:

    I simply love this product. It is literally like they got together with top guitarist and asked them if they could dream up a pedal board switcher, what features would it have? Okay, it would be silent when switching, allow you to true bypass any pedal, allow you to arrange the pedals into any order per patch, arrange effects in parallel, control up to 6 switch channels amps, control tempos on pedals, send MIDI controls per patch to anything, have 2 selectable outputs per patch for bi-amping, mute, more banks than you'll ever need to store, ability to insert your pedals in any order into your amp's effects loop. The housing is built for a lifetime of pro use, and comes with through bolts for your pedalboard. This product is a home run for sure with its near infinite versatility!

        Comments about Boss ES-8 Effects Switching System:

        I love this unit for what it is capable of doing, BUT the manual is difficult to navigate, and Roland/BOSS have NOT provided quick/easier guides to setting this unit up. In particular, the MENU system is a bit hard for me to understand, and I've spent years programming the Rocktron All Access/Patchmate combination! IF they'd put together an EASY guide to doing some of the common setups that this unit is capable of doing, I'd be much happier! Also be prepared to spend some cash - cabling is going to set you back more than a few greenbacks, especially if real-esyaye is tight! The BEST part is that you can use what they call the Four-Cabe Method - using your amps FX Loop! I have done this, and have a few pedals in that loop besides what's on the floor. I have a very portable rig, that is getting road-ready after a few more tweaks and some deeper programming understanding on my list of things to get done this week!

          Comments about Boss ES-8 Effects Switching System:

          I've been using the Boss ES-8 for about 3 weeks now and I absolutely love it. It is so simple to learn how to program and set up. It has more options than I even knew it had until I got into it. I am still learning more each day. I was using another switcher that allowed 9 pedals and thought I would miss that loop but the Boss ES-8 actually has other loops to add tuner and a volume pedal along with other loops to add 2 expression pedals and the ability to change amp,channels. The options are endless and having the ability to move pedals around in the signal,chain is awesome. I am now into the midi world and with no prior experience it is very easy to learn using the Boss ES-8. I will be keeping this on my board for many years solidly built and a must have for any guitarist who plays live or just have several pedals.
