BECOS pedals used
I love my TS8-MS Overdrive, it has an articulation and punchy mid range that I can’t seem to quite achieve with other drive pedals, it always sounds perfect. The MIDI integration is just brilliant and is perfect when syncing pedal changes with digital gear. What an incredible pedal!
