The Boss Roland company has been producing great sounding effects pedals for decades now. They have build various pedals for almost every single purpose one would use in either their bass rig, keyboard, or their guitar rig. They have successfully manufactured some of the world's first edition effects units and multi units and have set the stage for many other manufacturers to follow in their walking path. They build a system that gets quality pedals at affordable prices to the budgeted consumers.

This is a great little pedal for those needing to run an effects pedal in a signal but want to option to take it out of the signal as well. The reason someone would do this is to have another effect in their chain or they would like to take an effects for whatever reason out of the signal chain at times. This pedal works great for what is does. It is simple and easy to use and have a great amount of possible operations.

This is a great pedal for someone who uses an older effects pedal from the 70's or 80's that isn't true bypass and wants to remove it from the signal chain when not operating it. For example if you have and old MXR Flanger pedal from the 70's that has a lot of noise since and deteriorates your tone when running through your signal chain but still want to use it with your modern true bypass pedals...well this would be the pedal to use it with. You would hook it up in the loop A or loop B, then click the button on or off when you wanted to take it out of the signal. This would allow you to remove noisy old effects pedals that sound great but damage your buffered tone, you would hook this think up like a send and return on your amp and click the pedal on and off when you desired. Works great and is efficient and what it does.

At new these pedals come in right at around $79, which is a great value for a pedal like this. If you need to remove noisy pedals and bring them in when activating then this is a great pedal to do it with. Other manufacturers make ones as well that are smaller such as the Keeley pedal which is about a third of the size. This one has more versatility though.
