The Boss ES-8 Pedal Looper and Switching System puts total control over your pedal board, guitars, and amplifier at your feet. The ES-8 can be as sophisticated or as complex as you like, with high-end and professional users at the front of its design. If you've got a live rig to equal that of Fripp or Zappa, this exquisitely crafted piece of kit will enable you to make sense of it all.
The ES-8 gives you the freedom to incorporate exactly what you want in a live rig: multi-guitar setup, a total of 8 effects pedal send/return pairs (with two stereo loops), a dedicated tuner input, MIDI capability, additional footswitch controllers, expression pedal inputs, multi-channel switching on an amp, and powerful signal routing between presets.
When performing live, it's always good to have a backup guitar that you can fall back on should the worst happen. Some players like to switch guitars to achieve a different tone. Thanks to the multi-input options offered by the ES-8, you can set up everything at the start and crack on.
Exceptional Signal Routing
The built-in screen enables you to scroll through the enormous library of 800 available presets, which breaks down as 100 banks in total, with 8 presets that are accessible at a time. Even after you've set up your presets, you can reposition your pedals within to signal path to achieve a different sound. This can be done on-the-fly so your performance remains smooth and seamless. Not only that but each loop has a switchable buffer so you can reduce the chance of unwanted pops, clicks or noise from your vintage or boutique gear.
The dedicated tuner connection ensures that your trusty tuner pedal can be accessed, free from the signal chain. Expression pedal control allows you to assign changes in parameters on your expression pedal to any preset. The MIDI capability opens up the ability to tap into rack-mounted gear, or MIDI controlled pedals for greater connectivity.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your expanding pedal board neat an tidy, with a central switching system that gives you exceptional routing power, then it doesn’t get much more impressive than the Boss ES-8 Pedal Looper and Switching System.
