Many thanks to Guitar Magazine for reviewing the BECOS TS8-MS MIDI Overdrive/Switcher pedal. This is indeed a tool that sounds sweet – a secret weapon in the hands of pro-players around the world. Here are some highlights of the findings of Guitar Mag, which awards the pedal with Editor’s Choice badge. Read the full review here.
Boutique overdrive flavors meet versatile MIDI switching in a diminutive box from the shores of the Black Sea.
With all the knobs at noon and the classic voice engaged we kickstart the TS8-MS, revealing one of the most expressive and musical 808 sounds we’ve heard for some time. Chewy and aggressive with a powerful midrange, this would be worth the price of entry on its own. It’s a wonderful overdrive voice, as good as some vintage units we’ve encountered.
The TS8-MS is a fascinating pedal from a new company that is already gaining a reputation for innovative design and exceptional performance. There is a high degree of functionality at play here – you may not need all of it yet, but when you do, then look no further!
Thank you Guitar Mag for taking the spin on this one!
