I'm looking for the the font used by Boss to write the name of the pedals (e.g. Metal Zone MT-2).

I think it was available at some point on the net under then name "Toss" but it has disappeared.

Thank you!

HANCOCK PARK LIGHT LASER.TTF is a very good boss font
It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !

No silicon heaven ? preposterous ! Where would all the calculators go ?

It's similar, but the most interesting characters are wrong. Like the "r"...

For my CE-2 clone, I searched for a large photo of the original pedal and turned the lettering into a vector graphic with inkscape.

Here's a font that was shared in the facebook group. At least the E is much more correct than what I previously posted.
