In 1996 Boss released the SYB-3, which was to be the first bass synthesiser effect in a compact floor pedal. The SYB-3 became a hit with both bassists and guitarists and original units are still highly sought after by pedal aficionados.
The Boss SYB-5 is the latest incarnation of this classic design and utilises DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to bring you both a faithful recreation of the original SYB-3 sound and new, enhanced synth sounds at your feet! The SYB-5 has 11 synth variations, each one can be tweaked with ease using the controls. There is also a 'Pitch Hold' function so that you can freeze notes and play over the top. An optional expression pedal allows the SYB-5 tones to be manipulated even further.
