I'd like to hear clips.

Just listened to the combo drive. It has British voiced cleans and overdrive tones. I like it.

if the booster really works that way, and is that effective, I would love to add it to my arsenal.

The looper seems so pointless. It's basicially a pedalboard, WITH ONE MAIN EFFECT!

This is showing my ignorance, but who uses a looper?

For looping, an awesome guitarist from my home town uses the RC-20XL for making extraordinary music and very impressive jazz improvisation. I'll get one of those eventually!
#14
There's no way I would buy one of those loopers. The boost does look pretty nice though.

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

Yeah the looper looks like it has the same features as the old one, just easier with the extra buttons for saved loops. I'd rather make my own feedback. The drive pedal looks like it could be good. Wont get one though.

The boost pedal looks like the most promising. I'd get that thing if it wasen't over $100, would be so useful. The BC-2 just looks like a SD-1, SD-2 and DS-1 shoved into one.

The looper looks overly complicated and almost useless unless you learn to program it with your foot...which I'm to lazy to do just to get one effect.
#18
ya i saw the fb-2 and thought it looked cool, but is a tad expensive for what it is...

There's plenty of AC30 simulators and loopers on the market already, but the booster/feedbacker seems useful on paper for the boost features alone.
#20
Jumping on the bandwagon here: Booster/feedbacker looks decent and I don't have much of an interest in anything else. I bet the price point will be too high for it to be a hit though.

If the AC30 pedal really nails the sound and is a good chunk less than the ST-2 that came out a while ago (though of course it's probably the same price as they're different "flavors" of the same idea) I might get a slight itch for it, but what are the odds?

I wish Boss would focus on cranking out some new budget pedals. Who doesn't have some guilty fun playing with or modding a nice DS-1 or SD-1?
#21
yeah +1 on the booster looking quite nice (assuming it actually does what it claims).

the ac30-sounding one might be cool too (again, assuming it sounds good).

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

about 80% of the songs in my link were done with a looper. The looper is the only thing in the links that interest me.
#27
When I was shopping for a looper I went with the RC-3 over the RC-30 because the stereo option was a bit pointless for me. The 300 echoes that....in triple stereo. But the other two are at least of some interest. I'll see what they sound like in person when GC stocks them and decide then.
#28
The feedback thing would be cool.
But I wouldn't even pretend I'd use it for the boost.
If there was a pedal which coaxed feedback in a similar manner, and only did that, I'd probably be onto it.
Being in a pub covers band using a 30 watt amp and a 1x12 rarely lets me have those "rock god" moments.

"The FB-2’s feedback is authentic and true, not an artificial, oscillator-driven sound."

Really? So it isn't an oscillator? Really? Anybody want to buy a bridge?

If you were into loopers that thing would be pretty tasty. Up to 3 hrs? Godamn.

Well as you can see in the video the dude turns on the feedbacker and gets the feedback and does move his trem which does affect the feedback... thus? Non-artificial I guess otherwise I see no other way it could really be done... Also, if it is artificial but does react on your trem like a natural one then what's the problem?

Yeah, but the RC-3 and RC-30 also have 99 memories, 2Gb internal storage (3 hours), so why pay more unless you can use the extra channels? The 3 is $200.00, the 30 is $300.00 I believe, and the 300 must cost a bit more also. For me (non gigging player) it just wasn't worth it. But for a person that may actually use it in a live band setup it may be.

Well the pitch of what's being played will affect the feedback, artificial or not.
Just like the feedback will be changed by what note you're holding, the feedback will be affected by bends and tremolo use.

There's really no doubt that it's artificial. Have you ever tried getting that amount of feedback at low levels?
Even when I gig, 30 watt valve amp, turned probably two thirds of the way up, with the gain nearly half way up (generally, it depends on the gig), can't coax that kind of feedback. I probably could if I put both my drive pedals on and pushed reaaal close to the speaker.

well I have actually gotten feedback in like room volumes (think of a human voice talking level) but it was damn dirty! I had to run too much gain for that. But well I think of oscillator based feedback as something like Behringer's stuff or like Boss (or whoever that was, I remember the video but can't remember the brand) where whatever note you were holding would go on forever even after you'd stop fretting it (but while you'd still have your foot on the pedal). Think of it like EHX's Freeze but non polyphonic or something
#36
not bad. i like the crunch box and i really dont like almost any boss distrotion so its a plus.

i kinda like the feeback thing but my GE7 EQ pedals will do all that andthen some. i just need to get natural feedback.

in my mind this is one of the best boss distortions along wth the OS2, which i think is highly underrated. i consistantl get compliments for something that is not boutique or expesnive. not a bad little box. tons of versatility.
#38
i'd try the boss pedals out. thanks for posting these tim.

I've used the old Boss Feedbacker. They would feedback on a harmonic of the note played. Obviously a feedback loop through a filter. You couldn't do a Parisienne Walkways with it. If you want that sort of thing you need volume. I'd be interested in trying the new feedbacker but I wouldn't expect it to turn you into a cranked JTM45 vibrating the guitar's strings. I suspect, like the old ones, they are a children's toy.
