Boss VE-20 Vocal Performer Pedal
Boss Product Overview
The BOSS VE-20 has been designed from the ground up for singers, featuring some of the finest vocal-effects technology on the market.
The VE 20 allows you to instantly add lush vocal layers and harmonies to your singing. Add realtime pitch-correction, and show your creative side with special effects such as Distortion, Radio and Strobe.
Offering an incredible, easy user interface to totally control your vocal sound. Simply dial up your favourite setting and sing ' no programming required. VE-20 is a practical vocal effects processor even for beginners.
The high resolution signal path is based on the design of the now classic ASP8024. We've drawn on David Dearden's wealth of experience and the evolution of his designs going back to the 1970s, combining the benefits of traditional discrete circuitry with the latest advances in audio design technology.
Select the harmony interval of your choice, or create multi-part stacks, such as upper third and lower fifth, and save them for instant recall. You can also thicken your vocals with Double Track. Sing, record, loop, and overdub with the onboard Phrase Looper, inherited from BOSS's popular RE-20XL Loop Station. You get 38 seconds of mono record time to loop and layer phrases, and you can do it all in real time onstage.
With the same solid-metal construction as other BOSS stompboxes, the VE-20 is built to last. Its footprint is identical to BOSS Twin-Series pedals, ensuring that it will fit perfectly into existing multi-pedal BOSS pedalboards and travel cases.

Great bit of kit, a must-buy vocalists who play instruments or just want a whole palette of sounds!
The product is what it’s described as
Great bit of kit have wanted one for a while. Well worth the wait
Looks great and first impressions of sound are good. The manual is a bit brief, so I need to do a lot of trial and error to understand how and what can be saved as user settings and how to use the 2 pedals. The loop is really hard to set with an exact time I’ve found so far - maybe there’s some internet video explaining how to use this feature properly.
Pretty user friendly. If a 69 yr old ex singer like me can operate it, anyone can. Nice sound, reminds me of my wonderful old Carlsborough equipment.
