Why do I feel like the SY-1 has been out for a while? Shouldn't it come before the SYB-3 and SYB-5 synth bass pedals? Some high level details:


The BOSS SY-1 Synthesizer transforms any guitar or bass into a versatile synthesizer sound without a special pickup. 121 ultra-responsive sounds in a compact pedal, all ready to play—with no programming needed.

This amazingly expressive pedal offers latency-free performance that’s a natural extension of your instrument, check out the performance by Thomas McRocklin.

With its 11 categories and 121 total sounds, the SY-1 puts an enormous array of synth colors at your fingertips. 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.

SY-1 Sound Types

• LEAD 1/2—A wide range of sounds suitable for single-note soloing.
• PAD—Full tones that work great with chords, from layered pads to synth brass and more.
• BASS—Fat synth bass sounds, including filtered and sub-octave tones.
