An amazing pedal!


I've had the unit for a week. So far it does what it says that I wanted it for. Going to explore the many features I'm not so familiar with, starting with MIDI



If you buy it you'll like it.


The main thing is that this unit does not kill your guitar tone. It is completely flexible and powerful beyond what I use it for now but who knows how I will use it in the future. You can easily choose the order your effects go in. I'm currently running it in the 4 cable setup using the effects loop of my amp. I recommend the ES-8 to anyone who plays out or is a Hobbyist who likes to keep on top current guitar technology.

Amazing Effects Switcher


Wow, this unit is the end-all be-all for any pedalboard. Being able to reroute the effects in any order, toggle pedal settings, send MIDI commands with one press of a button is an amazing feeling. I absolutely recommend this to any serious gigging musician.

Nice features for the price point. Very intuitive.


I purchased the Boss ES-8 after researching several other products. Taken into consideration that there are similar switching systems out there with considerably higher price tags, I wanted to make sure that I didn't compromise on flexibility, and features just to save a buck. Based on my initial impressions after firing up the ES-8, it seems to have great quality sound and construction. I was able to navigate the programming with only a quick skim of the instructions. I'm sure you can get really deep into it if that is your thing, but for basic routing, switching, mode changes, and custom labeling on the LCD, I found it very intuitive. The only Con I noticed, is that when switching between patches with Gain pedals, I do experience some popping. I dismiss it as the nature of the beast when dealing with Overdrive and Distortion pedals. Perhaps other brands at nearly twice the price may not experience that...but I don't know that to be true. All in all, I would recommend this product to friends that want to streamline their approach to effects pedal switching, especially for gigging musicians that want to minimize the tap dancing on stage when changes sounds.
