TE-2 Tera Echo

Our 100th BOSS compact series model! Powered by our latest MDP technology, the TE-2 produces a dynamic new ambience effect that goes beyond traditional delay and reverb. Although any guitar sounds fine in John 5‘s hands, we dare to declare that any guitar is fun to play paired with this pedal.


  • Proprietary Multi-Dimensional Processing technology separates incoming audio into several dimensions to provide optimum effect for any type of sound or playing.
  • Unique ultra-dynamic stereo echo and ambient effects controllable by playing dynamics

DA-2 Adaptive Distortion

In a nut shell, this pedal employs musical distortion that plays well all over the neck, from tight, edgy low-string tones to fat, smooth highs for lead playing. In other words, this pedal creates the ideal tone for every register. Don’t want to take our word for it, read Sonic State’s Richard Beech’s DA-2 review.


  • Uses BOSS’ Multi-Dimensional Processing technology (MDP) to deliver ideal distortion tones wherever you play on the guitar neck.
  • Superb unique “clear” distortion; ultra-responsive to volume changes and playing dynamics.
  • DA-2 “knows” where and what you are playing to produce optimum tone whether it’s screaming leads or heavy chords

MO-2 Multi Overtone

With shimmery multi-string resonance to flute-like transparency to powerful textures reminiscent of organs, the MO-2 is what Richard Beech also calls “an evil synth.” Read the review by Richard Beech.


  • Uses BOSS MDP technology to produce unique polyphonic harmonic overtones for new unique sounds.
  • Great for leads and chordal playing
  • Combine with DA-2 and TE-2 for fantastic, huge tonal textures

RC-3 Loop Station

This pedal delivers a powerful looping ability in a small footprint. The RC series is preferred by many musicians the world over for practicing; many use it as a professional tool for playing live in a solo set-up. If you really want to get creative, see what this year’s Loop Station World Championship 3 (LSWC3) contestants pulled off during their showdown. Yes, there is a contest for such performances and it was amazing!

Enter for a chance to win an RC-3 Loop Station pedal autographed by John 5, Steve Stevens, Billy Duffy, Herman Li, and Darryl Jones. Contest ends April 5, 2013.


  • Top of the line stereo compact pedal looper.
  • Massive internal memory: 99 onboard loops, 3 hours of stereo looping.

DD-7 Digital Delay

The DD-7 takes the best features from its predecessors and expands the creative envelope with Modulation Delay mode, classic modeled Analog Delay mode, external pedal control option, longer delay time, and more. With this pedal you can take your delay up to 6.4 seconds and record up to 40 seconds in Hold mode for overdubs or solo rhythms.
