1979 - SG-1 Slow Gear

The SG-1 Slow Gear effect sounded like a guitar player riding the volume knob of his or her guitar. This produced a cool swelling sound with a gradual attack, almost like a violin. At $99.50 original retail price, the Slow Gear was a popular pedal, and players still seek out this BOSS classic in pawn shops and classified papers today.
