Demo of Boss SYB3 – Discontinued Bass Synthesizer

March 31st, 2017|Categories: Recording, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Recently, I've been clearing out effects pedals I no longer use, and came across this little gem known as the Boss SYB3, a bass synthesizer pedal.  After some playing around, I had enough sounds to make a demo of this pedal (now discontinued and replaced by the Boss SYB5). Check it out, and let me know your thoughts, or if I should demo any of my other pedals (watch the video to the end to see what the choices are!) https://youtu.be/FIxQKP8NKO4

So after finding this project tucked away amongst other recordings, I present to you the second in the series of songs performed all on bass, no guitar! This video demonstrates the Royal Blood power chord tone, which is achieved with a Boss PS-6 Harmonist set to fifths.
