Boss ME-50
3 Star Review  productwiki.com - Feb 7, 2011

The Boss ME-50 is a multi-effects pedal. This is similar to the Boss ME-25, but allows better control of the effects through a 3-section process with dedicated knobs for each section. This system does not, however, have a USB interface. 30 preset patches are built in, including delay, modulation, reverb, and compressor. Several COSM overdrive and distortion effects are built in for authentic sound, and a number of preset EQ settings are built in for fast tone modification. The pedal is in a metal case, enabling it to be placed on the ground and run from there without worry of damage. Features Floor-based multi-effects processor 30 Preset Patches Delay, modulation, reverb, compressor and more COSM overdrive/distortion effects Dedicated knobs for each effect section Preset EQ settings for quick tone editing 3 footswitches Onboard expression pedal Rugged metal case ... PROS: (1) User-adjustable noise gate can remove unwanted buzz caused by distortion and other effects (2) Very appealing to rock guitarists - wide array of distortion types to choose from (3) Integrates many existing Boss effects including Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo and Harmonist (4) Effect toggling is very simple - operated via a single dedicated knob ... CONS: (1) Operating memory modes may be difficult - complicated interface (2) Limited number of outputs - no conducive to midi clock or looping applications (3)"Wa" effect tends to drop out when used in higher registers

Boss ME-50 Guitar Multiple Effects
5 Star Review   By member roberthurt - Oct 5, 2006   

Strengths: This is a bullet proof design and should withstand years of abuse-all metal and quite hefty.It models over twenty distortion and overdrive pedals along with modulation and delay effects-sounds great!

Weakness: All right-it doesn't come with an adapter.But so many guitar players own Boss pedals a lot of them probably have one already.

If you were to puchase even half of the pedals that the Boss ME-50 models it would cost several times what this unit sells for.Plus, this is an all-in-one box so that each effect is optimized to work either alone or with the other effects-in other words I don't hear any of the tone-sucking that usually occurs when you string a lot of effects together.This processor is the best bang for your money that I know of.It's built to last and really does sound terrific!
