      I really wanna give this a ten, but even I found something that could be changed with this. Make a latching option on the feedback circuit and this pedal is a 10+.
      The Mid boost alone is a nice pedal, but the feedback circuit makes it a 10+. What takes it back down a few notches is the fact that you have to hold your foot on the pedal to get that effect. I have heard that some don't like that if you want to use the feedback but dont need the boost before or after, you have to turn the boost on and hold your foot on the pedal then turn the boost back off after letting off to stop the feedback circuit (confused yet? I am) I could see that getting in the way live if I didn't constantly use the boost. That one really doesn't bother me since I am what you would call a mids junkie and seldomly turn that side off. Overall, maybe an extra jack for a latching footswitch , or a mode where you can have both effects constantly without having to stand on top of that box for long periods of time, would be good additions.
      Pretty sure someone has already contemplated throwing one of these at their drummer without worrying about breaking it. They are that sturdy.
      More expensive then most Boss pedals with similar concepts (minus the feedbacker) but this is a world where you get what you pay for and I think the price is accurate for what you get.

      So far I actually really like this pedal.Its not perfect, but it's decent. But I have a problem that I will get to later. First the Pros and Cons.

      Pros:
      Good Boosting
      Feedback Sounds Natural
      Boss Quality

      Cons:
      Expensive for what your getting.
      Tone knob is REALLY sensitive.
      The boost is clean until about 3 o'clock on the boost level.
      The mid boost on character adds some gain.
      Gets noisy if tone knob is turned or boost knob goes past 1/2 way.
      The metal seems different than the other boss pedals...the metal is not as thick and has odd texture. (but I'm not worried about it breaking)

      So in short this pedal does what it says, however, putting a feedbacker with a booster is not such a great idea. The problem is where I put this effect into my signal chain. If I put it before my distortion, the feedback part sounds excellent, but the booster hardly boosts any volume. If I put it after the distortion, it boosts the volume very well, but the feedback part sounds incredibly muffled and muddy. Any suggestions on what I could do? Your help is truly appreciated. If I could get this problem fixed I would change the rating to 5 stars because it is a great pedal I just want it to sound good in both ways. Thanks! (Hope I helped you as well) :)

            I run a little studio where mostly singer/songwriters come in, and I end up playing guitar for almost everyone. One of my clients was a really good guitarist, and he had one of these. Even with the amp in another, acoustically-separated room, he could hold down this pedal and get feedback whenever he wanted, and it really brought his solos to life. I'm glad mine's on the way!

              Iv'e been using Boss pedals from when they came out with the first pedal. So it kind of give me the Bossgeek award hahahhaha!!!!.this pedal is an excellent pedal. all you need is imagination and inspiration to use all the pedals that you combine and experiment thruout your practicing and playing. the Boss FB-2 has a great sound. It can sound like a BSM Finest treble booster and also like the real vintage Range treble booster as well as a great tone when used only with an amp alone. With other pedals it helps by adding more clarity to the sound. the feed back needs a lot more concentration and style in order to function with precision.

              Comments about Boss FB-2 Feedbacker and Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

              This is not a clean boost; it will definitely color your sound. But it's great for driving the input of a tube amp that is already overdriven. It can add a lot of dimension and "good" color to an already cranked tube amp, and the Character and Tone controls make it really easy to adapt it to any type of tube amp you might be running or whatever sort of tonal quality you're looking for. I love driving my Orange OR15 with it; I can bring out some very vintage-flavored, fuzzy lead tones with it.

              I rarely use the Feedback effect. It seems like sort of an afterthought. I'm perfectly happy using this solely as a boost.

                  I expected more from boss, this one didn't deliver the goods. Feedback has a delay to kick in and sounds weird.. Unusable for my needs. I got it just for the feedback but the boost wasn,t great either, coloured up my tone pretty much ..not in a good way. It needs improved by boss and i,m sure they will in the future ...until then guitar brothers i will wait.

                  this Pedal is great for backing up overdrive or fuzz. i put this thing behind my russian big muf* and it makes the muf* GROWL!!! it fills in empty space like a charm and makes pedals saound way fuller. the feedback is weird at first but if you give the time and effort you can learn how to harness it. and put in front of all other pedals it does offer a definite volume boost. it will require some fiddleing to get used to but an awesome pedal

                      Comments about Boss FB-2 Feedbacker and Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                      I had a similar effect in a ME-33 years ago but it was kind of fake sounding. This one is way better. It has a more natural sound. Once you get used to how the feedbacker changes the sound you can adjust your playing and the cut off time to make it sound even better. For the less experienced it may take awhile but if you are a seasoned musician this will not take long at all. The mid boost punches through the mix and for us guys who want just a clean boost, it has that opinion as well. It's never ending controlled feedback without blowing out your ear drums.

                      not the best job boss ever done

                      Comments about Boss FB-2 Feedbacker and Booster Guitar Effects Pedal:

                      i ordered this pedal to give my mids a kick, but the pedal is way too bright and affects your overall tone in a bad way. you immediately lose all your amp's lows and it gets a little too grungy in the mid level boost. it can't even function right for a simple boost for the signal. when you turn the tone down to compensate the brightness, it becomes terribly muddy. the feedback squeal is completely unnatural and does not sound good at all. this pedal is terrible considering boss' reputation for making really great pedals. i sent it back after two days. just not for me.
                      the features are very simple and easy to understand.
                      the case for the fb-2 is metal, but its unlike what i'm used to by other boss metals. it seems like a cheaper pot metal.
                      being that the pedal is not that great, the value is not that good.

                      This is a really cool pedal that performs exactly the way I expected. This can really open up your songs with some cool new sounds. The boost is really good and the feedback pretty awesome.
                      Boss is always a 10 for me on Quality. No cheap stuff here.
                      Haven't found another pedal that will do this, so the value is great.
