I was recently in GC and played with one of these thinking that the sales person was trying to sell me more than I needed. I wanted to build my own pedal board. After playing with it for 45 minutes I was sold. It had everything I needed and it was easy to use. You don't have to scroll for your sound like you do with some other multi-effect pedals. And by the time you do the math, you get Boss sounds combined in this thing for under $300. by the time you buy 4 single pedals you have already exceeded that. It's a great buy not because of the price but because of the sound. I will be purchasing one REAL soon.

This pedal gives you tons of options as to how you want your instrument to sound, but almost in excess. Some of the distortions are so muddy that tuhey're virtually not usable. There are some cool effects you can use though, such as the flanger and the note hold, but in the end it just turned into a volume pedal for me.

Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects w/COSM

By Mark

from Denver, Colorado

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

The features of the pedal are good and the Owner's manual is well structured and easy to understand. The downside is that BOSS did not include a 110V to 9 volt power supply wiht the pedal requiring the purchaser to expend energy purchasing this separately. The Manufacture should include the 110V to 9 V Power supply with the unit since it is not practical to even practice or perform on battery power alone. I purchased a 9V power supply from another manufacturer in protest of this marketing ploy by the manufacturer for only selling you a portion of the key components for a fully usable pedal from the start. The materials of construction are good.

Solid effects board

By Bill

from NJ

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

Just bought my ME-50B last week and I'm absolutely in love with it. Even if you aren't into all sorts of crazy effects, this is still an investment worth considering if only for the compressor and filter settings (compressor + defretter = amazingly smooth and rich clean tone). Throw on the chorus+delay setting and you've got the perfect tone for melodic solo bass work. My only complaint is the limited battery life (12 hours for 6 AA batteries), but everything else about the ME-50B is good in my book.

Extreme Versatility

By G Rock

from Cleveland, Ohio

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

I've had my Boss ME-50B for about a year now. I play in two different cover bands. With this pedal, I can cover every group from Maiden & Megadeth to Nickelback & 3 Doors Down without having to change basses. I now only have to carry my Yamaha JM1 6 string. Ths sound techs want to put a mic on my speaker cab to get my true sound with this pedal. Compression is great & keeps my sound even no matter what effect I am using. Thank You Boss.

Awesome Bass Pedal

By paul

from Baltimore

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

This is a great bass pedal. I have hade it for several months now and my favorite effect is the octave down filter, which doubles your bass line and octave lower. It's great to have so many pedals in one system. The only problem I have is that the distortion gets too loud when you use it, which could prove a problem on stage. A great system though.

Great Product!

By The People in The Windows

from Naptown, Md

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

I just got mine today and I am absolutely in love with it!. Synth selections are amazing and the Expression pedal tops the whole thing off. Unlike the ME-20B their are no dumb menus to go through just some knobs. I also was pleased by the chorus, delay, reverb, phaser, flanger, T. Wah, and the drive/distortion selections. Some flaws are some feed back on combinations of pedals and the lack of an included PSA adapter. Otherwise great all around product.

Bass Processor

By BASSCLIF

from Chicago,IL

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

I haven't actually bought one yet,but a fellow Bassist I know has one.That prompted me to check one out at the nearest Guitar Center.It has ALL the effects and Pre Amp properties needed to Gig with.For the price-you can't go wrong considering what it would cost to buy all those Effect Pedals seperately.

Very Very Cool accessorie

By PearlJam10

from St.Louis,MO

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

This Boss multi effect pedal is one of the best things I have bought. It is very cool to play around with and contains endless amount of sound that you can play with. Some sounds I would never use, but there are alot that I enjoy playing with. Can't believe how much change this pedal can put the sound of you guitar through. Great toy!

Should have bought this one from the start!

By Jeff Tribby

from Lakeland, FL

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

I had an ME-20B for about two years, and I just couldn't get used to the way I had to adjust and write patches, so I wound up using the patches as they are without adjustments, and I got kind of used to it. Mind you, it's not the pedal, it's my analog brain. I prefer knobs to electronic menus. I upgraded to the ME-50B less than a month ago, and immediately I fell in love with the knobs and the fact that I can stomp all 3 pedals at the same time for great versitility. I feel like I found everything I didn't know I was missing. This baby does whatever I ask without a fight. I can have chorus, reverb, brain-crushing distortion at the same time. I should have started out with the 50B. I did like the 20B, but it simply paled in the light of its big brother. I have a custom 10-string bass that explodes onstage. I do have to watch it at church - ha! I highly recommend the ME-50B if you can still get one. They may have been discontinued. If so, better grab one while they last.

Wah wah?

By BgB0ycaprice

from Kalamazoo, Michigan

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

A faily nice bass pedal, it has tons of different effects for you to play around with and help you choose a distinct sound. Wah Pedal seemed a bit touchy and when you used it on some of the different effects there was alot of feedback. A Great Toy to play around with nonetheless.

Great Pedal w/ Cheap Effects? WORTH READING.

By Michael Mather

from Lake Havasu City, AZ

Comments about Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM:

The pedal itself works exactly the way it is suppose to. I don't think anybody has ever had any problems with it simply not working or something going wrong with the pedal or effects. That's a huge bonus for many of us who don't have the money to repair it. Most of us enjoy all the effects that you can choose from. It's really insane how many different options are available to really get a sound that YOU want from this pedal. However. The effects can sound somewhat cheap. I have yet to try a distortion or fuzz pedal that sounds good to me for bass. The wah is also not the best that I have heard. Reverb is minimal but the chorus is FANTASTIC as always by boss. Delay is another thing that boss is on top of their game for as well. Some of the effects sound cheap, and some of them really excel. There isn't a "happy middle" with any of these effects, so definitely don't buy it if you're looking to just use a whole lot of distortion. Buy it if you're into chorus, delay, minimal reverb or the compression abilities. The octaver is probably the worst sounding effect.

    I have a stereo rig, and this preamp is the heart. Even tho I dont use a lot of effects, But they are available and totally tweakable. Depending on what your bass is- this unit is very quiet also, which is important when i record with it. Good bang for the buck and totally versatile!
