Hey yo, I'm starting this club to celebrate the great achievements of the Roland corporation in the field of effects processor stompboxes, under the brand name of Boss. Maybe you're familiar with them. Please not that this is NOT a joke, and I am NOT being facetious. I really like Boss effects, even if i dont't currently own any. I am tired of seeing their name thrown around as a synonym for "garbage" in this forum. Anti-boss snobbery is a sure sign of ignorance and lack of experience. I'm not saying they are always they best, or that they've never made a clunker. In fact, I think their attempts at bass effects have generally been disappointing (though the ODB-3 is better than it gets credit for) There is an excellent online resource called the"Boss Area that had virtually any Boss/Roland pedal info you could hope for! Anyway, here are some fun facts about Boss pedals. Followed by the member list. The OD-1 was the original basis for the famous Tubescreamer. In fact, the tubescreamer had to be redesigned to do symetrical clipping because at the time, Roland(Boss) held a patent on asymmetrical clipping! Classic chorus effects like the CE-5 Chorus Ensemble were originally produced with analog circuitry, but replaced with digital versions shortly thereafter with no relabelling. Their buffers and bypass switch are WAY better than 99% of true bypass effects in most situations (and yes I HAVE encountered problems with boss buffers in fuzz/filter configurations - LIKE I WOULD WITH PRETTY MUCH ANY BUFFER) The FZ-3 fuzz is made without integrated circuits, and can be modded fairly easily, just like some boutique effects - and none of their circuits have EVER been covered in black sticky goo to give an illusion of originality More later BOSS PEDALS ROCK CLUB #1 RCCollins #2 DosiYanarchy #3 SG-Jazz #4 bothroysnvts #5 Idouru #6 bigchiefbc #7 katri #8 g0rilla #9 Jimmy Rocket #10 ryognbass #11 bobulibobium #12 lobey #13 metalupyourjazz #14 skulletwhip #15 warwick.hoy #16 CliffD #17 Jimbob Jones #18 rcubed #19 Mr. Pickles #20 crapusername #21 icarussmicarus #22 BassistFreak416 #23 p4toda #24 deluge of Sound #25 Crisp Delicious #26 Jumbo_steelie #27 The Owl let me know if I missed you - or if you didn't want to be included!
