Dating your boss pedal
The easiest way is to just use the BOSS Serial Number Decoder to find out when your pedal was originally produced.You can find the serial number in the battery compartment inside the pedal.But if you have played a 2008 Made in Taiwan (MIT) digital PH-3 Phase Shifter after playing a 1986 Made in Japan (MIJ) analog PH-1r Phaser you will know the difference.
It can sometimes be hard to separate your work and personal relationships. If you are seriously into your boss and think the romance could last the distance, it might be worth asking to move teams or looking for another role elsewhere.
I’m sure you are now wondering about your used Boss pedal you picked up at the pawn shop.
