Boss compact pedals were originally produced in Japan, until circa 1990 when production moved to Taiwan.
Earlier units came with a metal screw securing the battery compartment; later models retained the metal screw, adding a plastic knob for tool-less battery removal.
In 1977, Boss launched the compact series with the OD-1, PH-1, and SP-1.
The original three pedals have gone on to become rare classics, commanding high prices on the vintage gear market.
For many years Boss has manufactured a wide range of products related to effects processing for guitars, including "compact" and "twin" effects pedals, multi-effect pedals, electronic tuners and pedal boards.
