Boss NF-1 Vintage 1979 Noise Gate Guitar Pedal - Made In Japan

Featuring a durable Boss chassis and easy interface consisting of a Sens knob for the threshold and Decay, the NF-1 Noise Gate is a no-nonsense, reliable means to attain precise parameters over your noise levels. Intuitive in design and attractive in price, this effect functions well in high decibel genres such as thrash or doom metal where quick control over volume is a must.

This is an early black label, made in Japan model. It was produced in August 1979. The Serial number can be found in the battery compartment above the boss logo. It is #8500. 

One thing to keep in mind about this pedal from 1979 is that is also has the momentary LED. On the earliest boss pedal, up to about mid - late '79, The LED only momentarily lights to "check" battery strength. It does not latch on like the boss pedals from the 80's onwards. This is not a fault, it is how the circuit was designed.
