by Davis Beaston from United StatesI got the Boss PS-6 Harmonist for Christmas last year, and all I can say is that I'm blown away from how amazing it can be.

the harmonies are amazing (as long as you have the settings right) and as long as they are used tastefully, it can add alot to make a passage sound more full.
the detune option is a great 80's era chorus effect (think Enter Sandman introduction). I don't have a chorus on my board, so whenever i need one this fills the role perfectly.
My favorite option is the Superbend. I can now get crazy whammy-esque effects for my stop-tail guitars, and setting the rise and fall knobs to the max provides some really fun noises.
Boss pedals have a reputation of either being amazing or leaving alot to be desired... in this case, they knocked the ball out of the park with this one! close [-]
A really versatile effects pedal
by David Greenfield from United StatesI've only had this pedal a few weeks but am already using it for far more than I initially anticipated. I originally bought it principally for the S-Bend mode so that I could reduce the number of guit... read more [+]ars I need to take to a gig. I saw that Dan Auerbach used the PS-5 on Lonely Boy (a song my band Red Room Black covers), so I knew it would work well for that. But I've also learned that its chorusing effect (e.g., Detune mode with Harmony dial set in second 3-voice mode from bottom left) very nearly emulates a rotating speaker sound. Works very nicely on tunes like Cold Shot. Plus I have used the great harmonizing capabilities of the pedal on tunes by the Allman Bros and Bad Company. I can only imagine what all I'll be using it for in a few months if I've already been able to put it to such good use in so short a time. close [-]

As with many other harmonist effects, there will be some limitations and your overall sound will depend much on the place where you put this on the effect chain.
When using it with an overdrive or distorion, the distortion quality will have a dramatic influence on the harmonist sound (depending on the direct and effect level mix). I use this with a Fulltone OCD and sometimes with the Ibanez Tube Screamer and get very nice sounds with those combinations. close [-]
