The VE-20 from Boss is an effects pedal for vocalists that provides harmonies, pitch correction, layering, classic effects like reverb and delay, as well as unusual sounds like strobe and robot voice. It's been designed to be easy to use on stage, in rehearsal, and in the studio. The VE-20 a powerful tool for varying the tone and quality of your voice, and for discovering creative new means of expression.

A phrase looper is built into the VE-20, which enables you to create multi-layered loops of your voice in real time. It runs on 6 standard AA batteries, or on an optional PSA-series power adapter. Your microphone plugs into its combo XLR and 1/4" TRS input (which can provide phantom power to condenser microphones). There are two XLR outputs that enable stereo operation.

        Comments about Boss VE-20 Vocal Performer - Effects Pedal for Vocalists:

        This pedal is very effective and works wonderfully. It's got 30 effects already set and there's like 40 more places where you can create your own sounds and I love it. I did hope that the harmonies would be a little less electronic but hey it sounds good in one of my bands songs that way so I'm not complaining....too much lol. Oh I also wish that changing from sound to sound would be a lot easier then spinning the nob, I would prefer the foot pedal switch to change from sound to sound and then have the other pedal turn on bypass, not have it turn on harmonies....I hate having to bend over to change sounds....might as well buy a stand to put it on
