    Not enough on the demo video to make a comment but I am interested in seeing them in action.

    Reverb has a bit more info. They seem to be programmable, dsp-based, midi controllable, with the ability to store presets. Predicted to retail for $250 each.

    I always liked Boss pedals for the simplicity. It's why I don't buy into floor processors like Strymon and Eventide, although I have been tempted... That said, I'll get the Graphic EQ first time I see one.

    That’s the one I keyed in on as well.

    Very interesting. That EQ looks like a nice one. And would love to hear that modulation unit.

    I'm finding the same thing. The Quaverato Harmonic Trem is a great bit of gear, but there are just too many controls. I've gone back to using the Belcat TRM507, it's trem is ok and it's only 3 knobs.

    What's to comment on when the video tells us almost nothing.
    It only raises questions .... like

    Are Boss actually going to release anything that sounds different, or better, or is this just another re-package of the same old same old.

    I'm not interested enough to find out :)

    Except for the new graphic EQ, this 200 series looks like it's based on the 500 series.
    Pretty much same specs, but in a much smaller enclosure. And with 4 memory patches (instead of 290-something), plus $250 the intended ballpark price, it's clear how Boss position this in the current market. An interesting option.

    I used to drool over the functionality of those XL sized pedals like the RE20, but the humongous size put me off. Wished they just cut the pedal in half and perhaps skimp on some functions. Looks like I got my wish.

    Ok, 5 pedals and one chord.
    I think they're trying to sell some concept which will cost you $$$

    I like the Dimension C pedal best out of the ones on the demo.

    Isn't that the very definition of capitalism?
