Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Box for the money--rugged and versatile"
Sound: I can achieve a warm tube that fills the auditorium. The sounds are nearly limitless. I play CCM for our church's band and this processor has changed our total sound because the bass is so much fuller. I wish that the synthesizers had a little more variety in sound, because they come off sounding just what their name says--synthesized. I am still fairly new with the ME-20B and am still exploring all of the different effects that are obtainable. Feature: It likes electricity. It should come with the adaptor for AC power, because no one will use the batteries for a concert and have it poop out half way through. It is well constructed and rugged. Well laid out and relatively easy to operate and control. All three pedals are solid and easy to operate. Ease of Use: One evening and I had the major operations down. It makes perfect sense as to its lay out and operation and is to identify what mode you are in. Manual is clear and very useful. Quality: Rugged construction---hey it's a Boss. Value: For what is capable of doing, it is a great value in that all of the separate effects boxes needed to duplicate this would be hundreds more. Manufacturer Support: N/A Haven't had to deal with questions or repairs. The Wow Factor: Nice looking unit
Style of Music: CCM

"A great deal!"
Sound: The sound I get from this pedal is great. It will make any amp louder, but some effects lack power ( moslty the preset lower octive effect) but other than that there are no compliants. It provides hours of entertianment. Its worth every penny. Feature: It dosent come with an ac addapter so I suggest getting one The same day you buy your petal. Ease of Use: Very easy to use, im still messing around with it though so im sure there is more I will discover. Quality: Its boss, its made great. no compliants on the design. Value: a great value! Manufacturer Support: didnt have any problem with the company that made it. It was shipped to me within three business days. The Wow Factor: I love the way it looks and feels, Its just a great addition to my setup. Overall: Overall if your looking for somthing cheap but made good and worth every penny buy this petal.
Style of Music: all around style. I like to play fast.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
