NAMM: Boss - Over 8 Million Pedals

Whole lotta stompin going on      23/07/04

NAMM: Boss - Over 8 Million Pedals
It started right here...

We've all seem them. Those distinctive little sweetie coloured footpedals with the BOSS logo on them. They just seem to be at every gig where there's a guitarist. It all started back in the 70's with the introduction of the classic OD-1 (overdrive) which set the standard for the rest of the pedal pushers of the decade. Since that time the sheer number and variety of pedals to leave the BOSS factory has been astounding, Classic pedals are still much in demand as well as the current range, with the GS-10 modeling several classic pedals in software. "There's been a lot of stomping going on at the BOSS factory for over a quarter of a century," says Peter Swiadon, BOSS Product Manager for Guitar Products. "And our research and design team keeps pushing the envelope and making these pedals even better every year. We're gearing up to sell another 8 million." So, raise a glass and toast Boss for quite an staggering accomplishment - 8 million pedals!
