DD-200 looks great, but only 4 presets and no mod speed control...
What am I missing here?
What's the difference between the 200 and 500 series (other than size)?
Those do look like they'll be very useful for many people though.
I'll take pedals over wireless (the eq looks cool), but I should've gone to bed a long time ago...
The modulation and delay look cool, don't get me wrong, but these are essentially 500 series pedals that have been stripped down... so like new 20 series -->200... ok cool. So $200-250 each? A new dd7 is $160 and a new dd500 is $350. But they won't come out for six months and all the features, plus more, can be found in a 500 series, which can be picked up for $200-250 used all day... so I'm just sitting here wondering what's really new and exciting. Not to be a downer... I was just really hoping for something new an unusual.
TGP: "Man, I hope it's a Space Echo in a smaller format"
Boss: *releases four new feature-packed, pedalboard-friendly pedals, one of which has a Space Echo engine*
TGP: "I'm so disappointed"
Not sure what people were hoping for to be honest... Some brand new, never before seen effect type?
There is still hope guys and gals .
Edit: oops my browser did not refresh quickly enough lol. Yes!
will I replace my boonar?
Yes. I was hoping for something new. Or at least a fresh new take on something they're really good at. The space echo thing, people wanted an actual tape echo in small format, running a tape loop, so not another emulation. These aren't bad looking pedals, and I think the EQ is one of the best EQ designs of all EQs ever, but another multi delay and mod with the same engines from the 500s just doesn't get my blood pumping.
Oddly enough, the EQ pedal might be the coolest of the bunch.
Yes they are ok, just that to me.
I've been hoping for a ps-500 for a long time hehe or something interesting to me, the pedals are ok but nothing special imho.
Andertons has prices for the 200 series
Strymon priced Boss pedals... hard pass.
The MD-200 looks like something I´d want on my board. Five presets and MIDI - it could replace a few modulation pedals on my board. OTOH I´ve been down that path before, sold my modulation pedals and going for the Modfactor an then later the Mobius but so far I always end up buying decicated pedals for those sounds.
Buddy, the T-Rex Replicator Mini is the absolute best you're gonna get right now.
I think all of these look ******* brilliant, myself. Especially the EQ and OD ones. I don't find myself digging for nuances in delay or mod (does it echo? good enough. does it phase? slap it on the board.) but thei sound-sculpting capabilities to be found in a good OD and powerful EQ seems like it's going to be overlooked by many.
I feel like you pushed your glasses up your nose in a really self-satisfied manner when you pressed that "post reply" button in a thread you apparently have no interest in.
Andertons charges £219 for the new Boss pedals. They charge £299 for an El Capistan and £399 for a Volante.
The DD-200 is only £10 more expensive than the Wampler Faux Tape Echo.
I had interest until I saw what was on offer (not much) and what the prices were (quite a bit).
The Australian Boss prices are only $20 less than the small box Strymons here (a whopping AU$459 for a Flint!)
I wonder if EHX is suing them because of the massive use of "Memory Man".
EQ200 looks badass. Want.
Looks like the 500 series is aimed at the big strymons, and 200 series is like the smaller ones (bigsky / bluesky, etc).
