step on the pedals

Boss CS-3

CS-3 Compression Sustainer pedal compresses louder signals while boosting lower signals, providing smooth sustain without degrading the original sound.

Boss OC-2

The OC-2 Octave pedal adding two additional tones--one and two octaves below the original note. Each tone has a separate volume control and plays back with outstanding clarity.

Boss OD-3

The OD-1 is by now legendary. The OD-1 features an asymmetric circuit where the positive and negative halves of the waveform isn't distorted equally. The sound is therefore still close to the original even though distortion have been added.

Boss DS-1

The classic DS-1 Distortion pedal provides a harder distortion effect for guitar and keyboard sounds. Instead of toneless, fuzzy distortion, the DS-1 faithfully reproduces all the subtle nuances of playing dynamics--at any volume.
