So there have been some chatter this morning relating to the new Boss pedals debuted at Summer NAMM 2015. These two pedals are the Boss DD-500 delay and the Boss RV-6 reverb. And, these two pedals, look quite impressive. The DD-500 is a power house of a delay with many functionality / feature upgrades from the GigaDelay. I think the new enclosure look is a great new direction for Boss. The RV-6 Reverb is their answer to the awesome wave of reverb popularity that’s happening right now.
Let’s watch the videos and continue talking…
The Boss DD-500 Delay:
Features for the DD-500:
Studio-level stereo sound with 32-bit/96 kHz processing throughout
12 versatile delay modes from vintage to modern deliver unlimited creative possibilities
Unrivaled real-time expression with customizable control settings for onboard and external switches
Graphic LCD for easy, intuitive operation while performing and editing
Onboard patch memories and hands-on controls
Equipped with a built-in Phrase Looper, MIDI, USB and more
and here we have the Boss RV-6 Reverb:
Features for the RV-6:
Compact and versatile reverb pedal with rich, expansive sound
Dial in sophisticated, top-level reverb tones quickly with simple controls
Newly developed studio-grade algorithms powered by cutting-edge BOSS technology
Eight sound modes provide a diverse range of ready-to-play reverb effects
Shimmer, Dynamic, and Delay+Reverb modes deliver lush, immersive textures sought by modern players
Input for controlling reverb level with an optional expression pedal
As you can see, they really stepped up the plate with these two new releases. I’m assuming that we’ll have a more technical video coming out soon, but the sounds in both videos are great. Let’s talk about price. I was also impressed with this. You can pre-order the Boss DD-500 for $299 and you can pre-order the Boss RV-6 for only $149. Both pedals expected to ship on 8/9/2015. Right around the corner!
