The ability to control the signal routing of your pedalboard should not be the preserve of the privileged, and the BOSS ES-5 Effects Switching System offers a more compact and practical version of their flagship ES-8, for guitarists and bassists who wish to make sense of their pedalboard systems.
Advanced Signal Routing
The ES-5 offers incredible versatility, offering a wide range of connections to give you absolute control over your pedalboard setup. Built-in to the ES-5 are audio loops, which can be activated when required to access the pedal combinations that you have created. Therefore, instead of having just one signal chain to play with, you have five at your disposal and accessible by independent switches.
The complex power that lies within the ES-5 makes it much simpler for you to perform with greater creative control. Each loop's footswitchable control can be set to a standard On/Off state - or changed to affect other parameters, which means that instead of having to perform intricate footwork to select individual pedals, you need only change a single control. Parameters can be changed in real-time, so time dependent affects, i.e. delay, can be controlled with absolute precision.
As well as the five effect loops, the ES-5 is equipped with two TRS control output jacks, and a TRS control/expression input jack for controlling real-time affects. As well as this, the ES-5 boasts MIDI capability, allowing you to integrate MIDI-controlled effects units.
Analogue Components and Noiseless Switches
As you'd expect from the team at BOSS, the ES-5 is built like a tank, and designed to withstand all the abuse that comes with life on the road. The analogue circuitry preserves the fidelity of your guitar’s signal and tone to ensure its rich character is upheld pristinely. The switches perform noiselessly, so that you can rest assured that no matter how many times you switch between loops, unwanted pops and clicks will not colour or affect the quality of your signal.
Not only is the BOSS ES-5 exceptionally flexible and built with resilience in mind, but it also boasts an impressive storage capacity with 200 patches available. The large display allows you to get creative with the naming of each patch, and with fully assignable switches, you can save and recall intricate effects combinations during each and every performance.
The BOSS ES-5 Effects Switching System is a professional-quality instrument that is offered at price that we can all afford. Make the most of your gear, and integrate this masterful piece of kit today.
