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.
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

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

Don't you be insulting Boss.

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
Actually called Mark!

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?

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

cant deal with this tonight, going to bed.

hopefully you aren't banned in the morning as i'd love to continue..

apparently you own:
MXR Carbon Copy
Boss DD-3
Ibanez TS808
EHX Small Clone
Morley BAd Horsie 2
Korg Pitchblack

so i can see clearly that you are supporting smaller brands for better pedals.

They do what it says on the tin. They're readily available. They're built like tanks. They ARE cheaper than the alternatives (down here anyway). Problem?

I bought it and have already returned it. I gave boss one last shot and they failed. Horrible tone sucking buffer in it. Got a TC flashback and its light years better

This is all coming from someone who doesn't know the difference between a power supply and a pedalboard.

Boss is synonymous with metal? Considering their metal pedals are probably some of the most trashed talked pedals here on the forum I think your whole assertion is pretty far off. Also, they only make two metal pedals anyways.

I always thought the buffer on boss pedals was pretty decent. Its not perfect, but even some 'true bypass' pedals out there sound worse than the boss buffer. Everything sucks tone though, including the air between the speaker(s) and your ear, so I can only assume a cork sniffer such as yourself plays with his head right up against the speaker.

O, BTW, before you call me a BOSS fanboi, I've only ever owned one of their products in my life. Enjoy being ignorant.

Edit: I'm not a teenager either, BTW
