5.0 out of 5 stars It's everything I wanted, April 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Boss ME25 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal
This compact pedal/stompbox/pc DAW interface/tuner/loop station is so far the best pedal investment I've made. It is simple to use right out of the box. Although I would like to be able to make changes on the fly in a more simple manner, I love it. I am still on the same set of batteries I started with a month ago. Compared to my Fender VG strat (loves to eat battereies) that is a miracle. I've yet to take advantage of the DAW interface or Looping feature.

I am a fan of the SRV/Hendrix changy (Super Reverb/Ibanez Tube Screamer) tones and I get that nicely from this pedal. It fits neatly into my gig bag (fishing tackle bag) along with my cables and other gear. I love the Boost and Solo button as well. It really adds the umph when you need it. I like that Boss has a consistent interface across all of their products so you are automatically somewhat familiar if you have other Boss products. The only issue is that I wish the manual was more comprehensive... Read more

This pedal is excellent to have at home or for creating sounds in a studio. Tons of variations and options, effects, etc. You have to keep in mind that unless you prepare settings in advance, it is very difficult to change settings, or add specific effects on the spot live. Other than that it is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars In practice rather confusing and so so, June 5, 2011

This review is from: Boss ME25 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal
There's a lot of technology going to waste here. It's not intuitive or fun to work with. The whole premise of the way you combine effects is uncomfortable. I found that under pressure on stage it was frustrating, and it was at best a volume pedal with some chorus, because it was all I could SAFELY do with it. Otherwise I risked unexpected sudden leaps in volume from one patch to the next, and other headaches too stupid to mention. Yawn. Granted one could invest some brain cells and do a bit more with it, but it's not worth it for me, so I'm looking for a better conceived all-in-one pedal for those gigs where you can't bring a studio's worth of gear with ya. Their time has come, they sound fine, but it's going to belong to whichever company designs a really fast and intuitive user interface under your foot. The Japanese tweak-by-numbers school with cryptic 2 digit displays shouldn't be tolerated any longer. Re ... turn it.

[update] it might be that my unit was defective,... Read more

Boss ME-25 Demo

Boss ME-253.5Admin2013-11-02 21:21:27The ME-25 is Boss’ update of the ME-20 and the smaller sibling of the ME-70. The most instantly appealing element of the pedal is its low price, but Boss has a reputation for quality, so you know right off the bat that this isn’t going to be a discount option. The GT series may dwarf the MEs when it comes to the number of footswitches and the array of options they provide, but that doesn’t mean you should discount them entirely.
