I spend my time playing bass, not programming pedals, therefore I'm no pedal scientist. I bought this pedal because I like Boss stompboxes and the interface looked easy. Man, it sure is easy. There's two ways to write a patch and both are super simple and anyone could use these methods. The instructions took all of 15 minutes to read. Now about how it sounds-- Wow! Best envelope filter I've ever heard on a multi-effect, good dist./filters/synth patches, good flanger- everything I've tried sounds great. The unit has 30 presets but after a day or two with those I was bravely venturing out to replace some of them with my own patches. All in a pedal that's about half the size of the big Boss multi-effect, which is a big deal for me because I use other boxes and need the room on my pedal board. And did I mention this little box is tuff as nails? I recommend this to any hobbiest or pro, as the price puts it in hobby range but the product is sheer professional quality. I definately found the right multi-effect for what I need.

I have played guitar, banjo, bass, drums and keyboard for almost a half century and am a great fan of Boss pedals, having owned many of them. I am not impressed with this particular pedal in a live setting. It has a lot of effects that I find to be useless. But it's fun to play around with. Kept it 3 weeks and returned it. I would give GC 5 stars for their return policy. Over the years I've probably spent close to $30k at GC and appreciate their no-hassle return policy.

Boss ME-20B Pedal

By ARM

from Minnesota

Comments about Boss ME-20B Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

As with everything I purchase from Guitar Center, it arrived on time and in excellent condition. The body of the pedal is heavy and well made, ready for any gig. 30 effects come loaded and ready to play and you can easily adjust and refine them using the "save function. I use a power supply so batteries life has not been an issue. I have used it on batttery power though without and degradation in sound or output power. The on board BOSS tuner is dead and the pulsing arrows (sharp/flat) let you know when you are almost there. The volume pedal is smooth and consistant through the stroke and has a combined WAH feature. A solid pedal, easy to operate and enough sound patches for almost any situation. A great deal for the price considering it is about the same cost as two single pedals with tons of extra sounds and features!

Comments about Boss ME-20B Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

Great sounds, I was looking for months a fretless sound like with my American Fender Jazz and I got it!!!! Easy to use, in one single day you learn how to create and storage patchs. Nice price, solid, you can play along mp3 with headphones.

This effects pedal is BOSS

By Big Tim

from Tinley Park, Illinois

Comments about Boss ME-20B Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

I have had this effects pedal for about a year now and it has not failed me yet, it has every sound on here that you need. The chorus and delay is outstanding and the distortion kicks some major booty. You cant go wrong with the price. It just makes your bass setup 10 times better

A must have!!!

By Irma Guzman

from San Gabriel, CA

Comments about Boss ME-20B Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

I own this for about a year and in my opinion everyone should have one. Like everything else takes a minute to break in and figure out, and once you got it you are good to go. It is a great tool for experimental music.

Phenomenal

By Timothy Cummins

from Huntington Beach, CA

Comments about Boss ME-20B Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

I've been playing bass in many groups, from jazz to metal to indie, for about 5 years now. I know I'm not an expert, but I've always looked for different ways to expand and change my tone. I play on a Geddy Lee signature and love messing with the output of my sound. I received this pedal about a week ago and absolutely love it. I haven't even grasped it's potential yet, and can produce sounds that are absolutely amazing. If you want a pedal for a great price that has awesome features, you don't need to look any farther than the BOSS ME-20B.

      I tried this bad boy out at a friends house and I loved it! The only thing I mind is the price tag, but the pedal itself is amazing. Lots of wear and tear, large variety of effects, just an all around great pedal.
