The innovation in creativity of pedalboard systems made possible by the ES-8 has become more available and affordable. Expand your board just by one size and incorporate the ES-5, then you are in for a whole new world of musical expression, not just another utility tool. From this day on, the use of stompboxes will never be the same.\u003c\/p\u003e\n[TABS]\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cb\u003eDescription\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSmall Footprint, Huge Advance in a Pedalboard\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003eThe ES-5 is a powerful and versatile effects switching system that gives you complete control over a pedalboard. To start, you connect your pedals to the ES-5’s audio loops, and then activate the loops as needed to achieve various pedal combinations. The on\/off state of each loop and many other parameters can be saved in a patch, allowing you to instantly change sounds without dancing around to press the switches on individual pedals. Your guitar tone is also maintained, because it only travels through an effect when it’s needed for a particular sound. Other loop switchers for pedals can accomplish the same thing. However, the ES-5 goes way beyond this core functionality, providing powerful routing flexibility, real-time control options, MIDI, and more in a space-saving unit. This gives you a great improvement for controlling effects that directly bring your creative ideas to life.\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFlex Your Routability with the ES-5\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003eOne of the ES-5’s key features is its innovative routing flexibility, which provides the ability to easily rearrange the order of a chain of stompbox effects. This gives pro-level capability to access a wide array of effect combinations, offering total creative freedom to achieve unique sounds. In addition, the ES-5’s parallel chain function increases the effect combination options further, thereby expanding the final sound variation capability exponentially. What’s more, all of these programmed configurations can be saved for instant access during a live performance.\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIsn’t it about Time You Got Connected?\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003eSupporting the ES-5’s superior functionality is its comprehensive connectivity, which empowers this amazing switcher to do the job it does. In addition to the five effect loops on board, there are two TRS control output jacks and a TRS control\/expression input jack. MIDI capability is also included for integrating seamlessly with MIDI-controlled stomp effects. These centralized controls make the ES-5 even more powerful as a total command center of sound creativity. Of course, as is consistent throughout the ES-5 system, all of these control settings are also storable.\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eProtects the Purity of Your Precious Tone\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003eIn addition to routing capability and connectivity, the ES-5 pays particular attention to sound quality. It’s designed in a way that does not contribute to sound deterioration, keeping your tone pure and free of noise. These results are accomplished by carefully designed analog circuitry developed with the know-how, experience, and design expertise of the BOSS engineering team. In further regard to tone pureness, the ES-5 is equipped with input and output buffers that can be turned on and off independently as needed to suit any rig. *The output buffer is combined with the onboard mixer for the parallel chain function.\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003ePro-Level Design for Gig Durability\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003eThe ES-5 effect switching system is more than just a smartly designed tool for the creation of awesome sounds. It is also a handsome piece of hardware that is going to look really good on your pedalboard. Built with durable mechanical functions in a road-tough design, the ES-5 combines huge technical innovations with small useful conveniences. Memory capability with 200 patches, a large display with extensive naming capacity, and robust responsive foot switches with full assignability are just a few of the features that even make this switcher the choice of the pros.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cb\u003eFeatures\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eProgrammable switching system with five loops\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eAnalog circuit design to protect your pure tone\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUnprecedented routing flexibility with the ability to change the routing order and create a parallel effect chain\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eExternal control parameters such as delay time can be saved for each patch\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBuffers can be turned on\/off individually for the input and output and stored in each patch; level variability for output buffer\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eHighly reliable footswitches with switch-noise mute capability\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eBacklit LCD display shows detailed information at a glance\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e200 patch memories provide unmatched capability for actively gigging musicians\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eCompletely customizable pedal function assignments\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003ePro-level practicality and creativity in a compact body\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cb\u003eSpecs\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eModes:  \u003c\/b\u003eMemory mode\/Manual mode\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eLoops:  \u003c\/b\u003e5\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003ePatch Memory:  \u003c\/b\u003e200\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eNominal Input Level:  \u003c\/b\u003eINPUT, RETURN 1--5: -10 dBu\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eMaximum Input Level:  \u003c\/b\u003eINPUT, RETURN 1--5: +13 dBu\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eInput Impedance:  \u003c\/b\u003eINPUT: 1 M ohm (Buffer: On)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eNominal Output Level:  \u003c\/b\u003eSEND 1--5, OUTPUT, TUNER: -10 dBu\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eMaximum Output Level:  \u003c\/b\u003eSEND 1--5, OUTPUT, TUNER: +13 dBu\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOutput Impedance:  \u003c\/b\u003eOUTPUT, TUNER: 1 k ohm (Mixer: On)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eRecommended Load Impedance:  \u003c\/b\u003e10 k ohms or greater\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eControls\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eNUMBER 1--5 switch, BANK switch, MUTE switch\u003cbr\u003eEDIT button, WRITE button, - button, + button, DISPLAY\/EXIT button, ENTER button, Cursor left button, Cursor right button\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eDisplay:  \u003c\/b\u003e16 characters, 2 lines (backlit LCD)\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eIndicator:  \u003c\/b\u003eNUMBER 1--5 indicator, BANK (MEMORY\/MANUAL) indicator, MUTE indicator\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eConnectors\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eINPUT jack, SEND 1--5 jacks, RETURN 1--5 jacks, OUTPUT jack, TUNER jack: 1\/4-inch phone type\u003cbr\u003eEXT CTL CTL 1\/2, CTL 3\/4 jacks, CTL IN EXP CTL 1\/2 jack: 1\/4-inch TRS phone type\u003cbr\u003eMIDI connectors (IN, OUT\/THRU)\u003cbr\u003eDC IN jack\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eEXT CTL CTL 1\/2, CTL 3\/4 jacks, CTL IN EXP CTL 1\/2 jack: 1\/4-inch TRS phone type\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMIDI connectors (IN, OUT\/THRU)\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eDC IN jack\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003ePower Supply:  \u003c\/b\u003eAC adaptor\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eCurrent Draw:  \u003c\/b\u003e125 mA\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eAccessories:  AC adaptor\u003cbr\u003eRubber foot x 4\u003cbr\u003eOwner's manual\u003cbr\u003eLeaflet \"USING THE UNIT SAFELY\"\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eOptions (sold separately)Footswitch: FS-5U, FS-5L, FS-6, FS-7\u003cbr\u003eExpression pedal: FV-500L, FV-500H, Roland EV-5\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSIZE AND WEIGHT\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWidth:  337 mm\/13-5\/16 inches\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eDepth:  97 mm\/3-7\/8 inches\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eHeight:  68 mm\/2-11\/16 inches\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eWeight:  1.3 kg\/2 lbs 14 oz.\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e* 0 dBu = 0.775 Vrms\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cb\u003eReviews\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003ch5\u003e\u003cb\u003eShipping\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/h5\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eShipping Policy\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eFlipside Music ships items within 2 days of purchase.

Product Description

Boss ES-5 Effects Switching System

UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES IN LIMITED SPACE

Based on the same concept and features as the flagship ES-8, the ES-5 is pared down to offer more practical and essential use options for typical guitarists and bassists, and is drastically reduced in size to fit ready-made, standard-size boards. The innovation in creativity of pedalboard systems made possible by the ES-8 has become more available and affordable. Expand your board just by one size and incorporate the ES-5, then you are in for a whole new world of musical expression, not just another utility tool. From this day on, the use of stompboxes will never be the same.

Sku: ES-5
Vendor: Boss

Small Footprint, Huge Advance in a Pedalboard
The ES-5 is a powerful and versatile effects switching system that gives you complete control over a pedalboard. To start, you connect your pedals to the ES-5’s audio loops, and then activate the loops as needed to achieve various pedal combinations. The on/off state of each loop and many other parameters can be saved in a patch, allowing you to instantly change sounds without dancing around to press the switches on individual pedals. Your guitar tone is also maintained, because it only travels through an effect when it’s needed for a particular sound. Other loop switchers for pedals can accomplish the same thing. However, the ES-5 goes way beyond this core functionality, providing powerful routing flexibility, real-time control options, MIDI, and more in a space-saving unit. This gives you a great improvement for controlling effects that directly bring your creative ideas to life.

Flex Your Routability with the ES-5
One of the ES-5’s key features is its innovative routing flexibility, which provides the ability to easily rearrange the order of a chain of stompbox effects. This gives pro-level capability to access a wide array of effect combinations, offering total creative freedom to achieve unique sounds. In addition, the ES-5’s parallel chain function increases the effect combination options further, thereby expanding the final sound variation capability exponentially. What’s more, all of these programmed configurations can be saved for instant access during a live performance.

Isn’t it about Time You Got Connected?
Supporting the ES-5’s superior functionality is its comprehensive connectivity, which empowers this amazing switcher to do the job it does. In addition to the five effect loops on board, there are two TRS control output jacks and a TRS control/expression input jack. MIDI capability is also included for integrating seamlessly with MIDI-controlled stomp effects. These centralized controls make the ES-5 even more powerful as a total command center of sound creativity. Of course, as is consistent throughout the ES-5 system, all of these control settings are also storable.

Protects the Purity of Your Precious Tone
In addition to routing capability and connectivity, the ES-5 pays particular attention to sound quality. It’s designed in a way that does not contribute to sound deterioration, keeping your tone pure and free of noise. These results are accomplished by carefully designed analog circuitry developed with the know-how, experience, and design expertise of the BOSS engineering team. In further regard to tone pureness, the ES-5 is equipped with input and output buffers that can be turned on and off independently as needed to suit any rig. *The output buffer is combined with the onboard mixer for the parallel chain function.

Pro-Level Design for Gig Durability
The ES-5 effect switching system is more than just a smartly designed tool for the creation of awesome sounds. It is also a handsome piece of hardware that is going to look really good on your pedalboard. Built with durable mechanical functions in a road-tough design, the ES-5 combines huge technical innovations with small useful conveniences. Memory capability with 200 patches, a large display with extensive naming capacity, and robust responsive foot switches with full assignability are just a few of the features that even make this switcher the choice of the pros.
