SYB-5: Bass Synthesizer

Features



The Boss SYB-3 was the world’s first bass synthesizer to be packed into a compact pedal, and it found favor with experimentalists and tone aficionados alike. Today, the next-generation bass-synth pedal has arrived: the SYB-5. Utilizing the latest in DSP technology, the SYB-5 faithfully reproduces the classic sound characteristics of analog synthesizers with enhanced punch and power.

  • 11 DSP variations of saw, square, and pulse synth waves
  • Enhanced Wave Shape mode provides sharper sounds
  • Hold notes with the onboard pedal and jam over the top
  • Control filter cutoff and LFO rate via EV-5 Expression Pedal (sold separately)
