Product Description

The 'Boss' look and sound, for not so much pound!

There's no hiding from the fact that Effects pedals are a lot cheaper than they used to be. The danger a low price brings is the possibility of low quality - but not in this case! You can forget the cheapo plastic Behringer pedals - these GLX pedals are all metal, and are rumoured to be made in the same factory from which Boss buy their pedals! Having played around with the whole range, I can confirm that its very likely, as there's little difference between them. It just stinks of Boss.

So what do you look for in an Effects Pedal?
Great Sound - Lets face it - you don't want a pedal if it sounds pants. Fortunately, as mentioned earlier, these pedals seem to have very very similar sound to their Boss equivalent. And by that, I mean very very very similar. Almost as if.....no, surely they can't be. The PCB inside is virtually identical to the Boss one. How strange?!
Versatility
- You want to acheive all those mad sounds which you can with the Boss Pedals? No worries. The controls are pretty similar to its Boss equivalent too! Full details below.
Reliability
- Also as previously mentioned, these pedals are hideously well made! Manufactured completely from metal (apart from the Rubber footpedal cover etc), hard wearing pots which feel like they'll last forever - you've got something as robust as a Boss pedal.
Cheap & Easy to Run - Power is available either a 9v Power supply (not supplied, but available in our online shop) or a 9v PP3 battery (supplied). Battery changes are simple - undo the thumbscrew and the lid springs open, change the battery and tighten the thumbscrew and away we go again! Activation of the effect is acheived by

I bought this pedal for my son who is something of a Boss fan -'if it isn't boss I dont want it' - but at the price this was worth a punt. He now uses the pedal, and thinks its a usefull addition to his pedal board. He was of course skeptical at first, see previous comment, but tried it to humor me. The thing he liked was "it doesn't suck your tone" it just cuts in when the guitar signal fades, doesn't cut off the sustain, and helps to kill the feedback. He finds it especially useful in the practice room, where volume levels are high and he's forced to be playing pretty much on top of (well, right next to) his amp.
I'm not a musician myself, but if my son was prepared to remove a Boss pedal from his board to fit this one in, as he has, it seems that it is worth a try for even the most picky of gutarists.
The controls do need to be turned away from the lowest settings to get an effect, but the other revue of this pedal he thought was unfair, it doesn't kill your sound, and I think the other reviewer must have had a faulty one, or was playing very different music. My son plays mostly (heavy) rock and a bit of blues. He has used it with strat's, L.P's, a couple of seven strings, and even his Telecaster sounds fine through it, didn't lose the 'edge' at all, - just the noise.

They describe this product to be an affordable equivalent to the BOSS version which costs i think 2x the price of this product (when i bought it anyway).

But the real truth is, is that this product is quite useless and i will tell you why:

If you have set the LEVEL knob (first one) a little bit. . .it doesn't work. . it completely ruins your tone. You have to turn it right round to get any kind of effect you want from it.

Noise Gates are supposed to be manufactured so that they do not affect your tone as best as they can but with this pedal it completely destroys any tone. When you sustain a note for any length of time the pedal turns on and off (the light flickers green then red to show its active) and this kills the sustained note in its tracks. . .its just dreadful to be quite honest.

Overall i would recommend spending that extra money on getting a pedal that does the job instead of wasting half the amount buying a pedal that is very unimpressive and frustrating.

Heed my words.
