Boss MS-3 Multi Effects Switcher - MusicRadar hands-on

Simon Arblaster and Michael Astley-Brown stomp a big hole in their pedalboards to make way for this loop switching/multi-effects mashup from Boss.

As part of Boss and Roland’s latest slew of releases under the ‘The Future. Redefined.’ banner, comes the MS-3 Multi Effects Switcher. 

Combining a loop switching pedal and a multi-effects pedal, it could certainly save space in most guitarists’ rigs. 

Six internal effects can run at once, while a plethora of I/O awaits with the ability to plug in three external pedals, with MIDI and expression control also catered for.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
