Hello moo cow, and welcome!

How many pedals do you have in your collection?
Thanks for the welcome! I'm around 60ish at the moment.

Welcome to one of the best little forums on the interwebs man! I figured you'd fit right in. :D

This place evolved from the old Bossarea forum to the Stompboxzone to Bossarea Forum again. It's probably THE best place to discuss Boss related things; unofficially of course...
Yes! Thanks for the heads up Fernieite!

Hi Band Flanger HF-2 and OC-2 Octave come to mind. Loving the Fender trilogy as well.
Just capped off the DD collection. Satisfying!

I like to display my collection in order of model release date, and before I had the Boss book I took an old Boss web page as reference.

Now that I have the book, I decided to use it as the reference, so I did a list based in information from the book and cross-reference with another sources, as follow:

- The Boss Book
- https://www.stompboxzone.com/decoder/
- https://www.boss.info/us/promos/40th_an ... ct_pedals/ (scroll down the page to find the release sequence)
- https://bossarea.com/
- https://gitaargast.nl/bossarea.php
- My collection https://i.postimg.cc/bJHQcRcs/20210922-104219.jpg

There are conflicts of information (*), so if you guys spot anything wrong or if you have something to add, please do it posting below and I will do the correction.

I hope this can be useful to new collectors.

Cheers.

Yep, another inconsistency of the Boss book.

There are many, unfortunately.

This list is interesting because it comes straight from the BOSS book. This video inspired my boss collection wall mount, but I noticed a lot of the pedals are in different order. I don't think in the video that they took into account the month of the release date, rather, they just displayed them by year (ex: 1981 pedals all displayed in line but no real order. I used your list to display mine, so thank you very much for doing this!
