About this deal

It’s surprisingly lightweight and compact, yet still delivers the rugged durability that BOSS is famous for. The screen is very basic and honestly not much improved from the types of screen found in early Zoom Multi-FX units.

The GT-1’s three footswitches are smartly designed to provide patch selection, tuner access, looper control, and more in a minimal footprint. With a lightweight and portable design, the GT-1 provides a range of controls and features that makes it perfect for travelling musicians. With an offering of dedicated controls and a built-in expression pedal, you can tweak and change the effects sound, simply and easily. Using an unsecured network in a public place can be risky as unauthorised people may try to intercept anything you're doing online.Oddly, although I'd probably say I prefer the Zoom distortion effects on guitar, I prefer the Boss ones on bass. Power supply with 4x AA batteries or 9V DC power supply (coaxial connection, negative pole inside - e. The addition adjustable settings and tones in each of nearly 100 tones will have me occupied for years to come. Sometimes there are two of those effects in the Zoom B3 that can't be done together, let alone with everything else. One notable advantage of the Zoom G3Xn over the GT-1 is the overall feel of the built-in expression pedal, which we found has a much more substantial action.

Furthermore, you can add more expression pedals with the GT-1's jack inputs and connect it up to a PC or MAC for recording with its USB port. To make it as easy as possible for you to get the gear you want, we offer a range of instant finance options.

Like a bunch of Boss pedlas on a Boss pedalboard, this unit features a huge database of Boss pedal effects, from distortions, modulation and delays, to instrument tones, and amp modelling. This guitar pedal is really easy to use straight out of the box so even if you're a bit of a technophobe, you'll find yourself fully immersed in the GT-1 for hours on end. The KORG is the oldest unit and the cheapest also not made so well as either the Zoom or the Boss however it soundsas good as both of these especially when you record from it. This inclusion of the valve in the pre-amp stage makes overdriven sounds feel and sound convincing and much less digital.

The sad thing though is that the Korg is 10 yrs older so to my ears not a great leap forward for Digital Modelling the Boss GT-1 is.Created by pro guitarists, these patches are dialed-in and ready to use, and make great starting points for advanced players who like to create their own custom sounds. A history of BOSS processing is at your fingers, from classics such as the OD-1 Overdrive to modern effects powered by innovative MDP technology. Multi-FX pedals were incredibly popular in the ’90s, but quickly became something that was scoffed at by more serious musicians, who stuck to their individual stomp boxes and pedal boards.

The CTL1 switch can be assigned to functions such as tap tempo and effects on/off, while the expression pedal controls wah, volume and other effect controlling. The GT-1 comes loaded with cool presets to get you up and running, but you can connect the GT1 to your computer and download presets made by people around the world from the Boss Tone Central app to find some weird and wonderful sounds. When conditions are right ofc I prefer my Egnater Rebel or Laney Lionheart and my all analog pedals, but this MFX is a bang for the buck! If you purchase our extended warranty for this product, we'll extend the money-back guarantee period to 180 days and the warranty period to 10 years. A range of control buttons are simply laid out for easy access, allowing both professions and novice musicians to enjoy the pedal to its fullest potential.Sound wise it is simply not up there because it just sounds so Digital after a while it sounds the same no matter which settings you are using. The free BOSS Tone Studio software provides a full-featured editor/librarian for the GT-1, as well as integrated access to all the patch collections at BOSS Tone Central. He started playing bass and guitar in 1998, and played the local scene throughout his teen years before life got in the way. The Easy Select function allows you to choose patches by genre, distortion, or effect type, while Easy Edit lets you tweak drive, modulation, and echo tones to perfection with little effort. Another thing of huge disappointment about the BOSS GT-1 is that it will not respond well to different guitars.
