Early Japanese delay pedal. The first Boss delay pedal and one of the hardest to find. The sound quality is characterful: these pedals are sought-after by collectors and players for their unique sound.

Serviced and working very well.

Condition is great for its age (about 40 years!) – it has a few dings to the finish and other minor signs of age – see the detailed photos for more information.

It’s a 100v Japanese model – it should work fine on North American mains 110/115v without a transformer, but you should check your local mains voltage first. A step-down transformer can be used in the UK/EU. We do not recommend using cheap generic Chinese mains transformers and can supply a high quality UK-made transformer if required. 

For sales in UK/EU the price will include VAT. VAT-free sales are possible to businesses and individuals in the EU (outside the UK) with a valid VAT Number – please get in touch if you wish to buy this way.
