Mitch Gallagher puts the BOSS SY-300 guitar synth to the test in this episode of Guitars and Gear. It’s BOSS’s most advanced guitar synthesizer yet: no special pickup is required, the tracking is ultra-fast, and it allows for polyphonic playing and tracks chords very well. Four footswitches allow you to switch presets as well as modulate the synth tone. Four built-in effects processors can be added anywhere in the internal signal path, and there’s even a send/return loop for adding external effects.
One extremely cool thing about the SY-300 is that the tone actually changes when you switch pickups on your guitar. That’s because the SY-300 is generating its sound based on what it’s hearing from your pickups. Factor in the ability to bend strings and play with vibrato, and you’ve got one of the most expressive guitar synth systems around.
If you want to extend your sonic range beyond typical guitar tones, the BOSS SY-300 is a great solution that doesn’t require you to add an extra pickup to your guitar. Thanks for watching!
