A Chronicle of BOSS Delay Stomps Since 1978
Spanning the last four decades, BOSS has created well over 100 different types of effects pedals, and each one delivers both colorful sounds and colorful looks. Among them are everyday guitar staples like overdrive, distortion, and reverb, as well as unique effects like Slow Gear and Slicer, just to name a few. And, of course, BOSS pioneered the famous chorus pedal in 1976, a now-standard effect that’s regularly used by players in every style of music.
Over the years, a rather significant number of BOSS pedals have been devoted to the delay effect, another essential sound tool for musicians, and guitarists in particular. To date, 20 different models have provided delay and echo effects in one form or another. Sit back and settle in as we run down the entire history of BOSS delay pedals through the decades, from 1978 to present.
