Description Reviews Questions

The BOSS SY-1 Synthesizer Pedal is a simple to use, super versatile pedal that can easily slip into any setup. Designed to be used with guitar or bass, the SY-1 transforms your instrument into a great sounding, fun and inspiring synth. The SY-1 doesn't require any additional equipment, making for a simple plug and play experience.

Backed by BOSS' advanced technology, adopted from the SY-300, the SY-1 delivers a great range of instantly accessible analogue style synth sounds, a massive 121 sounds (11 types with 11 variations) in total! In addition, the sounds are polyphonic, allowing for both single notes and chords to be played.

Within the 11 categories you can transform your guitar or bass into massive leads, fat basses, layered organs, pads and strings and more, all with a latency free performance. The stacked Effect/Direct knobs gives you individual volume control of your guitar/bass and the effects, making it easy to blend to the two to your liking, whilst the Tone/Rate Depth knobs allows you to adjust the synth voice. To the right of this you have the 11 way Variation knob, to select the variant within the category selected from the Type knob (Lead, Pad, Bass etc).

Additional pedal board versatility comes via the SY-1's send/return sockets. This allows you to blend one or more pedals in parallel with the SY-1's synth sounds i.e patch your drive pedal in the loop and then send the whole signal to a delay or reverb pedal for final processing.

The SY-1 also has added dynamic and expressive tonal options. If you hold the pedal switch the SY-1 will sustain the last played synth sound. thus allowing you to jam over the top with your regular guitar sound. In addition you can add an external footswitch for octave-shift effects and tap tempo, or connect an expression pedal for continuous Tone/Rate control.

This BOSS SY-1 is a superb sounding, easy to use, yet versatile pedal that gives guitarists and bass players access to a great range of analogue style synth sounds, all in one compact, pedal board friendly size.
