An expansive pedalboard's worth of BOSS effects in one versatile unit.

It's one thing to have a sprawling pedalboard with every effect pedal you'd ever need, but if one pedal can give you awesome, versatile tone and portability, look no further than the BOSS ME-70. Consolidating over 40 great BOSS effects into a single floor-based multi-effects unit, the ME-70 pedal has no confusing menus or displays to sift through—it was designed to be just as easy to use as a collection of stompboxes. Organized into logical groups, these Boss effects are dialed in with dedicated front-panel knobs. All these guitar effects are housed in Boss's distinctive rock-solid, all-metal chassis, and it runs on either AC power or batteries for maximum portability.

The Effects

The BOSS ME-70 has 8 different effects groups, and all of them can be used independently or simultaneously. Once you dial up your effect type and customize it on the front panel, you can even save your settings for each effect type.

Manual and Memory

The BOSS ME-70 pedal has 2 operating modes: Manual and Memory. In Manual mode the effects function like a floor full of stompboxes; all adjustable on the fly. Its 4 dedicated footswitches allow you to turn the essential effects groups on and off. Once you've got your sound where you want it, Memory mode lets you save the setup as a patch for instant recall. You can save up to 36, and the ME-70 comes with 36 presets to get you started. In Memory mode, the 4 main footswitches let you switch patches and banks with ease.

Features Effects Groups:
  • PREAMP: Uses BOSS COSM amp modeling technology to emulate 6 classic guitar amps
  • OD/DS: 10 distortion and overdrive effects
  • COMP/FX: Compressor, Touch Wah, BOSS Slow Gear, BOSS Defretter, Pickup Simulator
  • MODULATION: Phaser, Flanger, Vibrato, Tremolo, Chorus, Rotary Speaker, Uni-vibe, Intelligent Harmonist
  • DELAY: Phrase Loop with 38 seconds of recording time and unlimited overdubbing, Echo for up to 6 seconds in analog, modulate, and reverse
  • PEDAL FX: Wah and pitch-shifting, voice effects, modulation control via expression pedal's toe switch

It's all the BOSS effects you love in a single, easy-to-use unit—add the ME-70 to the cart now.

    Comments about Boss ME-70 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    You have to know what you are searching for.

    If you need a decent selection of effects, very easy operation (similar to pedals) and compact design, this is exactly what you need.

    The sound quality is outstanding and the amp modelling does de job quite decently when you don't have a good one available.

    I carry my ME 70 around in a 15 inches' laptop backpack, with cables, guitar and sheet stands, sheets, tabs and a microphone. All my rig, excluding the guitar, fits in a backpack. Isn't that awesome??

    Very Easy to Use!

    Comments about Boss ME-70 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    I've owned this for about a month now. I am very happy with it. I use this pedal two ways: 1) with Fender Blues Deluxe or Eganater Tweaker tube combo amps, and 2) straight into a PA mixer. Either way I can get great sounds. Actually, I also use it through headphones sometimes, late at night, which also sounds great.
    I'm playing a strat and a Nashville (three-pickup) tele with this. Both guitars sound great with the ME-70. I generally play classic rock, blues, country, modern rock, and reggae.

    The entire user manual for this pedal is only 20 pages, and that includes several pages of electrical specs, the list of preset patches, and a diagram showing you how to plug in your guitar. Yet the manual contains everything you need to know, to use this pedal. My point is - this thing is easy! I've looked in the manual maybe once or twice. Aside from that, everything is self-explanatory, for anyone who has used guitar effects before.

    Seems very rugged and durable. Sound quality is excellent. Changing patches is basically instantaneous. There's a bit of noise, when using the amp modelling plus compression plus distortion, but it's manageable. Sound is very clean when I use it for modulation and delay effects in the effect loop of my amps.

    The looping function is extremely fun, and a great practice tool. Although the loop function uses the delay pedal, there's also a delay effect in the modulation pedal, so you can still create loops with a delay effect on your sound. Or, when not using the looper, you could have two delay effects running simultaneously, with different time settings for each.

    Things that Boss could improve: metal switches (although I had this same type of plastic-covered switch on other pedals, and never had any problems), longer loop time (I once surpassed the 38-second limit while playing a long section of a really slow song). These are extremely minor issues.

    I have created, and saved, a few patches for quick access. However, most often, I find myself just using this in manual mode. It's like have a bunch of stompboxes (reverb, compressor, distortion, modulation, delay, noise suppressor, volume pedal) in one box.

    My favorite features are the sound quality and ease-of-use. If you're shopping for a multi-effects pedal, I would recommend that you try out the ME-70. I am very very happy with mine.

    Review of Boss ME70 multi effects pedal

    By Jeffrey Jones

    Comments about Boss ME-70 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    I've used the Boss ME 50 for years now & pretty happy with the tones & FX I can get out of those...thought I'd upgrade to the ME70. I don't like the fact that the tuner does not cut off the signal when using like the ME50 does. I was hoping the ME70 would have more flexibility with the amp models & tone EQ. It does, but it's really time consuming to dial it in. This unit seems to work best in the progaram mode if you are patient enough to dial in & save your settings. I've tried it with numerous types of tube, solid state & modeling amps and like most effects chains, it works better with some than others. I'm NOT GETTING RID OF my ME50's as they seem to be easier to dial in usable tones. Sometimes it's better to 'not try to fix something if it ain't broke' & in my opinion, the ME50 is a better 'working mans' multi effect pedal.

    Boss ME-70

    Comments about Boss ME-70 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    this is a pretty good pedal. i use it mainly for practice with headphones, and going straight into a PA system, when i can't use my amp rig.

    i do like the stomp box feel, in that i can adjust everything on it with knobs, and not have to flip through menus to change settings. it sounds pretty good. the preamps are ok, and most of the effects are pretty good. i like the fact that the preamps really do affect the sound and feel of each of the effects, especially the distortions.

    i find the expession pedal is best for wah and volume. the "voice" option is pretty much worthless. the first switch (comp/fx) is pretty useless. the compression and solo are the only two settings worth anything.

    overall, if i can't use my amp rig, i'm more than happy to use this pedal.

    This is, without a doubt, the best pedal I have ever used. It has everything I need and so much more. The looper is absolutely fantastic and the effects are top-notch.

    This is the best

    Comments about Boss ME-70 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    I love this petal!!! Sure the distortions are strong and all that, but it doesn't go all the way as a speared petal but it limited is wend it just sounds like noise witch is more of an advantage than a problem. The harmonizer is just beautiful but you just need to know the right notes and stuff to make it work. Sure wend you first get it, you don't know how to work it But wend you actually read the manual you will find all it's secrets in two days tops. I own it for about 2 weeks and it's the best petal board I have ever owned!!!
