Boss/Roland have announced that some brand new products ahead later this year.
Boss announce the DD-500 Digital Delay and RV-6 Reverb, which both feature all-new Boss algorithms.
The DD-500 builds on the legacy of the DD-20, with what Boss claims is "the most powerful and versatile digital delay pedal ever made", boasting 12 delay modes, a graphic display and deep editing controls.
As well as the usual digital, analogue and tape echo modes, the DD-500 also packs pitch-shifted, filtered and dynamic delays, plus emulations of the Roland SDE-2000 and SDE-3000 rack units and the Boss DD-2 compact digital delay.
Also announced is the RV-6, which boasts eight reverb types, including standards room, hall, plate and spring, plus modulate, dynamic, shimmer and reverb+delay, all delivered via the latest Boss DSP.
the RV-6 pedal features stereo operation, 100% wet sounds via plugging into the B input only, while the effect level can be controlled via an optional expression pedal.
Roland announces JC-40 Jazz Chorus guitar amp.
Like the JC-120 it's based on, the JC-40 offers a stereo clean tone via two 10-inch speakers, as well as Roland's trademark Dimensional Space Chorus effect for widescreen shimmer.
In addition, the amp offers updated vibrato, distortion and reverb effects, as well as a stereo input for use with synths and stereo effects, plus a stereo serial/parallel effects loop, headphones jack and footswitch control of the amp's effects.
