NAMM 2007 Highlights: BOSS

Roland has launched several exciting new BOSS products, the pick of which as far as we are concerned is a pair of Legend Series stompboxes developed in association with Fender to recreate the sound of two stone cold classic amplifiers.

The FBM-1 and FDR-1 are based on the ´59 Bassman and ´65 Deluxe Reverb respectively, will retail for £109 and are set to be available in March.

Other new pedals include the FZ-5 Fuzz, DN-2 Dyna Drive and ML-2 Metal Core.

Meanwhile, newly issued under the Roland banner are the FC-300 MIDI foot controller and VG-99 Guitar System modelling processor.
