boss me50B: does the slow gear worth buying it?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by steak'n'roll, Dec 19, 2005.


  1. Considering it sells for at least 250 $ in indivual effect format, does the slow gear on the me-50b sounds as good as the original one?

    So, does it woth buying the multi-effect to get the slow gear and other things? :meh:

    The Slow Gear on the ME-50B may actually work better than the SG-1 pedal. As for it's worth, all I can say is it was worth it to me to get an ME-50B. And when I started selling off my pedals, I had enough left over to buy a G&L L-2000!
     
  5. I've read some bad things about the guyatone. Doesn't it suck all the lows?

    put it in a loop. I doubt engaging the pedal would make it suck any lows. Surely it's just a simple noise gate release thingy, if we're speaking in technical terms.
    Let us know how it works. I'm on the lookout for a Christmas present present to buy me. Can't find one to demo here :( Oh the woes of guitar shops in Taiwan :crying:
