Well you're tiresome search has come to an end, finally!
The Boss manufacturers in Japan have developed a special breed of pedal that not only flawlessly reproduces all of that vintage, authentic tone of the older analogue circuitry, but also offers the razor-sharp benefits of modern technology, in one single analogue foot pedal.
