Jared Followill's Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects Pedal can be seen around 0:32 in this video of his bass gear rundown. Jared's guitar tech then goes on to demonstrate how the opening bass riff of the song [Closer](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg3F4zpOdK8) is achieved, by using the pedal of the ME-50B to pitch the sound up.more
From a Gear Gods interview in 2014. At 1:05: "It's actually for bass, but I've used it for guitar. I've tried the guitar-one but I don't like it nearly as much as this one. It's got a bunch of shit that's cool if you're making like harsh noise, but I just use the same settings all the time." > I’m on my third one now, and I got my first one from a friend in 2007 because he hated how it sounded. At the time, I was playing in a noise-rock band and a lot of the effects and parameters on the 50B lent it to being a powerful tool in that context. I used it so much in that project that it kind of became my sound. I really like how the wah and whammy are voiced. The resonance setting is a big asset because it’s a secondary wah sound I like. It acts like a low-pass filter that sweeps on the higher registers. I like using the octave-up function for leads because it really helps pop out of the dense live mix. It doesn’t track nearly as well with chords and it’s not a clean modulation, but I get this weird, glitchy splattering of shimmer that I really enjoy for “The Ghost I Used to Be.” Another thing it has is this chorus/delay setting that is my go-to solo echo effect, because it’s a warm, watery sound. That all being said for my sound and how it works for me, I do not recommend the pedal for guitarists [laughs]. Its idiosyncrasies work for me though.

A bass player's dream come true!
The BOSS ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects with COSM puts world-class bass effects in a rugged floor unit with easy pedal-style control. Effects are divided into 6 sections (Compressor/Limiter, Master EQ, Filter/Tone, Drive/Synth, Delay/Modulation, and Expression Pedal), giving bassists a range of unique and powerful tones including new effects like Sound Hold, Octave Up, and Kick Drum-all with easy knob-based control.
This thing is perfect to figure out what you like effectwise, but kind of useless in every other aspect.
Useable sounds: 1. Distortions are okay 2. "my first envelope filter" 3. "Phaser"
Unusable sounds: Everything else.
Major drawbacks: 1. The wah has a HUGE volume spike when you sweep it through the middle. 2. The synth's tracking is pretty much nonexistent. You have a choice of whole notes or halfnotes. 3. Octaver doesn't track well either.
tl:dr It's a decent pedalboard to start, but buy it used.
Gosto dos timbres dela e o que me agrada muito é ela ter os knobs pra facilitar a regulagem. I like the tone of me50 and the best thing for me are the knobs that make my life easier.
