  • Based on the same concept and the possibilities of the flagship BOSS ES-8, the BOSS ES-5 is a slightly slimmed down version that comes in a much smaller housing and therefore easily fits on smaller pedalboards. All the essential needs of guitarists and bassists are also served here. The creative possibilities for pedalboard systems made possible by the ES-8 are now affordable for smaller applications. Expand your pedalboard with the little ES-5 and you'll play in a whole new league.
