The MS-3 Multi Effects Switcher is a new-concept pedalboard solution that maximizes your creative options by combining a world-class multi-effects engine and multi-pedal switcher in one small, dedicated unit. Now, anyone can put together a professional effects system that's incredibly compact, extremely light, and versatile enough to achieve nearly any sound imaginable.

The MS-3 is capable of running six internal pedal effects at once while seamlessly integrating three of your favourite external pedals. It also offers deep rig control capabilities, allowing you to switch amp channels, adjust effects in real time, work with MIDI devices, and more.

With the MS-3, it's easy to create a portable board or fly rig without the compromises associated with traditional loop switchers and all-in-one multi-effects units.

I've used various switching systems(very expensive ones at that) throughout the years as well as all flavors of multi-effects. No matter what the setup, there was always something missing or omitted.One detail that was overlooked that required purchasing more gear to get what you needed. Not with the MS-3 Boss has taken a good look at these systems and done their homework. There is very little to nothing this very small unit cannot do. As a switching unit alone it would be worth the price. 3 pedal loops, 1 control in for amp channel switching, 2 controls out for expression pedals or additional switches(tamp tempo etc..) Everything is completely programmable within the unit and PER PATCH(brilliant) as well along with all the switches that come on the MS3. MIDI out with nothing gimped(Looking at you Line6 M series) (PC and CC control). The PC editor is one of the best I've used, Super simple. I have not owned a Boss effect since a chorus pedal in the 80's. The built-in effects are top notch. Very surprised specifically with the overdrives. And all of the effects can be moved around the signal chain as needed. Check out some videos to get an idea of everything this little unit can do, true innovation from Boss!

This is really a great unit. Comes with the legendary Slow Gear and Terra Echo effects. Only gripe I have is that the 3 loops are locked together.
