A Bass Player’s Dream Come True. The BOSS ME-50B puts world-class bass effects in a rugged floor unit with easy pedal-style control. Effects are divided into six sections-Compressor/Limiter, Master, Filter/Tone, Drive/Synth, Delay/Modulation and Expression Pedal-giving bassists a range of unique and powerful tones including new effects like Sound Hold, Octave Up and Kick Drum. Effects can be edited using 23 knobs and controlled via three built-in footswitches and an assignable expression pedal. This is the piece no bass player should be without!
Bass-multi effect with simple analogue operation, modeling of well known compressor and distortion pedals + all the most important effects including Touch-Wah, Fade-In, Defretter, Hi Band-Driver (distortion for the highs, the basses stay clean), Octave Up (Octave above the original tone), Sound Hold function (for holding a low tone, in order to play over it), Sound On Sound (Audio Loop) -recording with new bass drum effect for precise timing. Built like an effect chain (Manual Mode); switchable to Memory Mode with 24 memory places. Expression pedal with 6 options such as Octave, Wah, etc. Robust metal housing, battery operation possible.

This Boss ME50B has a ton of effects inside and you can get it to sound just right. It has an awesome workmanship and its pretty simples to use. For me, the weak spot here is the preamp (you cant modify much your sound and when theres no way to bring your amp, you cant rely in the ME50B to save you).However it may work just fine with a nice active bass, which already has a preamp inside it... Its a little high priced for what it delivers.
bought this a few years ago as my first multi-effectspedal for bass. and its really good, i was just a beginner, not really knowing whats what. but i really love this pedal. bought it primarily to try out the distortion sounds for bass, but also wanted to know about other effects.
A Boss multi-effects tradition, good sound and good build quality. The controls are simple and intuitive, even in a live situation. The price is adjusted to the overall quality. The only problem is the power supply is not included in the package.
