Roland SYB-3 Bass Synthesizer

The SYB-3 Bass Synthesizer is the first of its kind--a high-quality bass synthesizer in a compact floor pedal design. The SYB-3 can turn any electric bass guitar into a dance, techno, hip-hop, funk or R&B machine, molding a "straight" bass sound into any number of today's popular synth bass sounds.

* Compact pedal with 11 different modes for various bass synth sounds
* Internal Sound Modes (1-7): Uses input bass sound as a trigger to control built-in oscillator
* Wave Shaping Modes (8,9): Processes input bass sound to create synth bass sound
* T Wah Modes (10,11): Adds auto wah effects to the original bass sound
* Freq. and Res. knobs control cutoff frequency and resonance
* Effect and Direct knobs allow for independent level adjustment of synthesizer and direct sounds
* Two outputs (A and B) for splitting synth and direct sounds
* Hold function sustains synth sound, allowing bassists to play over the "held" sound
* BOSS 5-year warranty
