ME-8B Bass Multiple Effects

Boss Guitar Effects Guide Book Vol. 12-15 (1996-2000)

The ME-8B Bass Multiple Effects offers a huge collection of bass-optimized effects for today's bassist. Beginning with a high-quality compressor — a must for great bass sounds — the ME-8B also offers high-quality EQ and chorus effects. A variety of unique and innov­ative effects are also provided, including a "defretter" that transforms fretted bass sounds into fretless bass sounds, a humanizer, and aggressive distortion effects. The CTL (control) pedal has another six effects that are controlled separately for dramatic effect manipulation. In all, a total of 23 effects are provided.
