NAMM 2007: BOSS Releases fantastic new pedals
BOSS, possibly the most respected makers of FX pedals for guitar, has introduced some exciting new models for 2007, at this year's NAMM. The company announced three new guitar FX pedals that seem destined to be hugely popular amongst guitarists - as you'd expect from Boss!
GREAT NEW STOMP BOXES
FZ-5 Fuzz Pedal:
This modern pedal is built for the modern guitarist, but the sounds you can get from the FZ-5 are pure retro. Looking back at the glorious rock sounds of the ’60s and ’70s, the FZ-5 recreates its vintage fuzz through BOSS state-of-the-art COSM® modeling.
Recall the fuzz-filled flavors of classic pedals such as the Maestro FZ-1A, Fuzz Face, and Octavia pedals, and kick ’em into overdrive with the FZ-5’s Boost knob.
BOSS' proprietary COSM modeling technology allows guitar players to recreate classic fuzz BOOST control for more aggressive tone.
Housed in BOSS’s classic indestructible compact pedal design, the new FZ-5 is the perfect weapon for players wanting to beef up their rigs with classic retro fuzz artillery. PRE-ORDER NOW!
DN-2 Dyna Drive:
An Overdrive Pedal That Reacts To You! This unique and exciting new type of overdrive pedal that reacts to the intensity of your performance. This new BOSS offering comes equipped with the acclaimed Dyna Amp technology recently introduced in Roland’s popular CUBE-60 amp.
This road rugged overdrive lets you create unique tone transitions based on picking dynamics. It's possible to get a transparent clean output sound by playing softly, or a powerful heavy overdrive sound by picking aggressively.
For players looking for a unique way to add expression to their performances, the new DN-2 is the perfect answer. PRE-ORDER NOW!
ML-2 Metal Core Pedal:
Extreme Metal in a Compact Pedal! With its extreme gain, the ML-2 is the most potent and heavy distortion pedal ever created by BOSS. It easily delivers massive distortion and gain with heavy lows for playing Nu Metal, Grind Core, Industrial, Hard Core, or any genre that requires crushing sound. The ML-2’s ferocious and biting tone will complement and cut through any blast beats your rhythm section can create.
The new road-tough ML-2 offers ultra-heavy distortion with a sharp-edged attack. A LOW control provides a heavy low frequency sound a la 7-string guitar or dropped tuning while the HIGH control gives you a screaming, metallic tone.
Like all BOSS Compact pedals, the ML-2 is built like a tank and virtually indestructible. PRE-ORDER NOW!
BOSS AND FENDER® JOIN FORCES TO CREATE VINTAGE AMP PEDALS
Fender’s amps of the ’50s and ’60s are beloved and coveted by guitarists around the world. BOSS and Fender have teamed up to give guitarists a unique Fender tone combined with BOSS technology, sound quality, and reliability. Thanks to BOSS’ technology and tone know-how, the new FBM-1 and FDR-1 bring the natural, fat, rich, bright tones of the ‘59 Fender Bassman and snappy overdrive tone of the ‘65 Deluxe Reverb to a BOSS pedal format.
Fender’s Ritchie Fliegler states, “We’re constantly being asked… Of the many distortion devices out there, which one do we recommend to bring out the overdrive in these classic amps – and keep that Fender tone intact. Frankly, they’ve all left us a bit cold in some way or another. After working with BOSS on this project – the answers are the FBM-1 and FDR-1.”
These new pedals fall under the class of a new series of BOSS pedals called the Legend Series, products based on legendary products of the past.
By combining Fender tone with BOSS technology and sound quality, the FBM-1 ‘59 Bassman and FDR-1 ‘65 Deluxe Reverb provide road-ready stomp boxes that go to the true core of guitar tone.
FBM-1 Fender '59 Bassman Pedal:
Fender amps of the ’50s and ’60s are beloved and coveted by guitarists around the world. Thanks to BOSS’ technology and tone know-how, the new FBM-1 brings the natural, fat, rich, bright tone of the Fender Bassman to a BOSS pedal. In conjunction with Fender, the new BOSS FBM-1 recreate the legendary tone of 1959 Fender Bassman. Features include the same controls on the original Bassman: Presence, Treble, Mid, and Bass EQ controls.
