About Rubber Discoloration on Some Compact Pedal Models

Each BOSS compact series effect pedal includes high-quality molded rubber pads for the pedal switch and bottom of the unit.

Due to manufacturing processes, the rubber can sometimes have a dull, milky residue on the surface (known as “rubber bloom”).

This substance is a natural occurrence in rubber products and can be easily removed. It is not harmful to humans and does not affect the rubber’s quality or functionality in any way.

It has been confirmed that a recent production run of compact pedals may exhibit more rubber bloom than normal.

If you have purchased one of these products, you can remove the rubber bloom by wiping the pads with a soft cloth.

If the rubber bloom is not removed to your satisfaction after wiping, please contact an authorized BOSS distributor or service center in your country for repair or replacement.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and we thank you for your continued use and support of BOSS products.
