Product Description

The Boss PS-5 Super Shifter is a next-generation intelligent pitch shifting pedal with killer sounds and Boss first features. This single box provides pitch shifting, harmonies, detuning, and wild tremolo arm/flutter effects - all with simple, knob-based control.

Features:

- Compact pedal with high-quality pitch shifting, harmonist, and tremolo arm effects.
- Intelligent, key-specific pitch shifting of single notes using simple Pitch and Key knobs with scale display.
- Key Shift outputs continuous shifted tone for playing in different keys.
- Detune effect provides slight shifting for "fattening" a guitar sound.
- Tremolo Arm effect bends single notes up or down to a pre-selected value when pedal is activated; optional expression pedal can be connected for realtime control.
- Flutter effect simulates fast or slow "slap" or "slam" of tremolo bar when pedal is depressed.

"Metalhead' dream"
Sound: stunning effect, can do all the weird sound I need, interesting to experience all sound with different combination of knob. Feature: no build-in expression pedal, I pay another $60 to get a boss pedal for this. Otherwise, better than the whammy. Quality: Boss quality. no surprise. Value: better sounding than any similar product on the earth. presently, $149 is a steal. Manufacturer Support: OK The Wow Factor: I will brought another immediate if it is lost. Overall: Highly satisfied.

"that blue thing"
Sound: It's not really a pedal requiring good sound, so i'll rate it blank Feature: Very fun and entertaining. with the tremolo arm, you can do all sorts of stuff like bending up or down during a song. If you bend up, and then release it down, then it is like going from a synth sound back to a heavy metal part .VERY COOL. I do wish that it could actually detune ur guitar, but u get very close on harmonics when you set the balance meter all the way to the effect( coming out with a sortuve detuned effect). The flutter is also cool. Quality: The best quality lies in Boss' hands. It is as tough as a tank. Value: Not the best for 150 dollars Manufacturer Support: Never needed em' The Wow Factor: It really looks sparkly. all of the pictures everywhere are wrong. it isnt baby blue, it is aqua blue Overall: It is fun, but there can be better pedals.
Style of Music: everything

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.
