Product Description

The ME-50 Guitar Multiple Effects is a floor-based multi-effects processor built with the ruggedness and simplicity of a stompbox. Designed to work with your amplifier, the ME-50 focuses on killer multi-effects (like COSM overdrive and distortion) rather than amp modeling. And dialing in your tone is easy, thanks to dedicated knobs for each effect section, three footswitches and a built-in expression pedal. So if you want great-sounding effects without all the menu surfing, the ME-50 is everything you need.

Features:
Floor-based multi-effects processor with Boss' most intuitive interface ever

30 Preset Patches including delay, modulation, reverb, compressor and more

Killer COSM overdrive/distortion effects including "Square" synth sound

Dedicated knobs for each effect section - no menus to navigate!

Tone Modify function offers Preset EQ settings for quick tone editing

3 footswitches for switching effects on and off with a single stomp

Onboard expression pedal pre-routed to 6 modulation options or volume

Rugged metal case with clear panel layout

Works Just Like Your Favorite Pedals
A multi-effects processor without a menu-driven LCD Leave it to BOSS to design the most intuitive multi-effects processor ever. With simple knob-based control over each effect section, the ME-50 makes dialing in your tone easier than ever. And when you want to kick in an effect, just step on one of the footswitches. Think of it as a pedalboard full of stompboxes, just without all the individual pedals.

Superb Overdrive/Distortion Effects
The ME-50 boasts a range of superb COSM overdrive and distortion models - perfect for use on stage with an amp. Derived from the popular OD-20 Drive Zone, these are some of the crunchiest, tastiest overdriven sounds you can imagine. There's even a "Square" effect for cool synth-type sounds. Of course, the ME-50 also has plenty of other effects like compression, analog delay, flanger, phaser, tremolo, Harmonist,
Uni-V and a wicked new Rotary effect.

Easy Assignable Expression Pedal
Having an assignable expression pedal is great, but not if you have to dig through menus just to select the effect you want to control. The ME-50 fixes all that with a simple Pedal Mode switch and knob. First, select whether you want to use the pedal for volume or expression. If you choose expression, you can then select one of six preset assignments via the dedicated knob: wah, resonance, voice, ring mod and octave up or down.

Memory Function for Live Performance
The ME-50's Memory function makes changing Patches quick and easy. Once enabled, the 3 footswitches become Patch selectors for switching between three programs within one of the ME-50's ten memory banks. To switch banks, just press the Bank Up/Down buttons or use an optional footswitch. And with the ME-50's convenient tuner function, keeping your guitar in tune is easy.

4.5 out of 5 (348 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"I think it's a great product that is easy to use and with a bunch of massive good sounds within"
Sound: I like the sounds of the chorus/flanger etc.., I am not a fan of distortion/metal and other heavey sounds, I use them but not too much. In overall the sounds look pretty good to me. Feature: For the next model, if you could combine sounds within patches f.i. creating a sound with chorus/tremolo etc.. Ease of Use: How easy can it be ?? Quality: It's made for heavy duty !! Value: If you want to buy all the sounds within this machne in seperate boxes I'am sure this is less expensife Manufacturer Support: no comment, no problems so far The Wow Factor: It has a good appearence, and for me the choice of a blue background with white characters is a very good one for using it in place's where there is not much light Overall: As i can see it now it will be satisfing for al time My excuses for any mistakes ( I'am from the Netherlands )

"Very worthy companion with my Strat... all styles"
Sound: The sound quality is amazing, from the flange to the phaser to the distortion... just great. Feature: 3 Stomp boxes and fully customizable... best feature by far... Has full expression Wah, sounds like classic crybaby... Ease of Use: Very easy to use, even has patches that can be tweaked... play it in and play for hours... Quality: Very high quality... i stomp on the pedal all the time playing on stage... throw it around...(not really recommended) very sturdy metal contruction... Value: Add up the different stomp boxes and you will see why its a great value... i paid much higher then what it sells for now Manufacturer Support: Never really had a problem with it... gave it a ten so as to not drop the rating... The Wow Factor: Very sexy piece of equiptment... sexy blue... yes plz :) Overall: The best pedal!! I will never really have to buy another pedal. I've owned many different pedals, Old and new alike. I have a cry baby is use also and just use the BE50 as a volume pedal. I played it at the shop I knew I must have this pedal for hours of playing and practicing and the pain free design of playing on stage. Definitely worth more then its price. Fits well in a duffel bag with matching AC adapter... picked mine up cheap $10...

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
