How in the world is Boss still in business?
 
ya ya "people keep buying them blah blah"

It amazes me how the guitarist community keep this company in business. So many awful tone sucking pedals. Literally every one of their pedals are overpriced and inferior to other brands. You can rest assured that if Boss has a pedal for $100, another company has a much better version for the same pricepoint.

TLDR- boss needs to go away. Support better companies.

This is probably one of the most ignorant, moronic posts I've ever seen on here.

Not quite true, expensive for pedals, probably, but for that you get rock solid durability, reliability, ease of use and one of the widest catalogues of pedals, well, ever. I dont mind the tone, especially for distortion pedals where an amps base distortion is just not good.

Opinions. Some people like Boss, some don't. I've disliked pretty much every Gibson I've ever played, but there are people who love them. The solution to the ''Blahblahblah I don't like <insert company here>'' problem, is suprisingly simple, even for someone who seems as ignorant as yourself...

If you dislike a particular company, don't buy their stuff - buy the products that you enjoy and make you feel best about your playing.

You need to go away with stupid posts.

Better? By being less successful & offering products of lower demand.

Don't you be insulting Boss.




Literally impossible to find a picture of Fred as Boss without ****** in the URL

I am also amazed that Boss are still in business, mainly because everything they make seems to be indestructable.

If nothing you make breaks then nobody has any reason to buy a new one :p:

Boss are universally hated in every forum but UG. But UG is mostly teenagers so it is understandable for you to not realize how crappy Boss pedals are.

Bestow your wisdom upon us, for we know not what we do.

I only use 3 Boss pedals; a DD-7, an NS-2 and a Line Selector and they all work quite well. What's the issue?

Well UG is mostly teenagers is it not? And if you go to any other forum everyone hates Boss pedals aka tonesuckers aka overpriced junk. Boss is synonymous with metal and this site is all metalheads, so add teenagers + metalheads + Boss = need to take my advice

You could have gotten pedals from other brands for the same price that mops the floor with those Boss pedals is my point.

The only Boss pedal that is comparable to others brands was the ce-2 and that is long gone...
