A slicer is an effects pedal that creates rhythmic sounds by splitting the sound to the beat.
Introduced in 2008, the BOSS SL-20 Slicer comes from the twin pedal series, featuring two foot pedals and an intuitive interface.
Its unique slicing patterns and dynamic sound movement when output in stereo have been loved by various players as a unique effect pedal typical of BOSS.
The SL-2 inherits the spirit of the SL-20 and is a legitimate evolution. Despite its compact pedal housing, the SL-2 is a slicer with unprecedented originality, beatific sound, and high flexibility.
The slicing patterns, which have a powerful impact that makes it hard to believe that they are processed by a single pedal, can be further varied by utilizing the dedicated BOSS TONE STUDIO application.
The TONE STUDIO also supports stereo input and output, making it an effects pedal that will inspire not only guitarists, but also DJs, keyboardists, loop performers, and all other types of musicians.
