The SY-1 transforms any guitar or bass into a versatile synthesizer that’s fun, inspiring, and ready to play. Backed by advanced tech first developed for the SY-300, this super-cool pedal delivers a huge selection of analog-style synth sounds while occupying minimal space on your board. What’s more, all the sounds are polyphonic, allowing you to play both single notes and chords.

Thanks to custom DSP and the latest BOSS innovations, the SY-1 offers latency-free performance that’s a natural extension of your instrument, letting you to play freely and organically without altering your normal technique in any way.

Expressive leads, sweeping pads, layered organs, fat basses, and more are all on tap, plus a variety of rhythmic synth patterns that are a blast to jam with. And with the grab-and-go Tone/Rate and Depth knobs, you’re able to adjust any synth voice just how you like, including changing the pitch on some sounds.

Amazing pedal.

March 22, 2020 | Alan

I naturally defer to Boss products by reputation (and own 2 superb WAZA Craft pedals), but this pedal should be understood and tested before purchase, as it may delight or disappoint, according to expectation. I found the idea of 11 presets, plus 11 varieties assigned to each preset initially exciting, but on evaluation found that if you don't like a particular preset, then 11 varieties are wasted. Although some sounds impressed and others sounded contrived (being probably too digital), I couldn't get away from the fact that I wanted more control over the sound possibilities. Therefore, the presets work for the ergonomics of the pedal format, but limit your options creatively. In the end its a guitar effect creating non-guitar sounds. The dual concentric controls for balance of dry to wet and the rate/tone and depth adjustments helped, but I found it failed to compliment the other pedals in my chain. Not for me but as expected, it's well engineered and a fair price. Try it for yourself!
