Who says multieffects are only for guitarists? Get the power of COSM amp modeling and more -- optimized for bass -- with the Boss GT-10B bass multi-effects pedal. Loaded with tons of gig-ready patches right out of the box, the GT-10B combines Boss's powerful DSP engine with the awesomeness of COSM sound modeling to create an advanced, all-in-one bass station that will complement any rig.

The Boss GT Pedal That's Made Just for Bass

Not only does the GT-10B provide 200 usable effects and amp models, it gives you the chance to customize them and then save them in groups that make sense. If you're a performing bassist, you will like the pedal's full range of effects, phrase looping, and easy-to-use interface. And of course, you'll love the fact that the Boss GT-10B is made specifically for bass!

All the Must-Have FX: Comp/Limiter, EQ, and OD/DS

At the heart of the GT-10B is Boss's custom-made sound processor, which drives the multi-effects pedal's range of effects algorithms and COSM amp models. Developed with bass players in mind, the GT-10B features necessary effects for bass, such as a professional compressor/limiter, EQ, and overdrive/distortion.

Play Through 200 FX Patches -- Or Build Your Own

Check out the pre-programmed effects and use them as they are, combine them to create interesting new sounds, or customize them to put your personal stamp on your effects. When you've discovered an effect or sound that you can't live without, save it for instant recall later. And when you really like something, use Phrase Loop to hear it again and again.

When You Want to Play NOW, Use EZ Tone Wizard

If programming isn't your forte, you're in luck -- the GT-10B offers an intuitive EZ Tone Wizard feature that uses an interactive, graphic icon-based user interface to assist you in creating tones. Spend less time tweaking and more time playing.

Achieve Cool FX with Parallel Chain

Create way-out-there effects with the Parallel Chain feature, which blends complex sound effects with powerful, pure tones. The more you switch or blend the two paths, the more intense and dynamic your overall bass sound will be.

Features:

- Versatile multi-effects pedal optimized for bass
- Loaded with essential bass effects such as overdrive/distortion and compressor/limiter
- Play through 200 preset patches -- or customize and save your own in 200 user slots

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Wow ! Just wow !"
Sound: Many usable patches right out of the box. Some of the patches are just a tad FX heavy. Can adjust them on the fly, or better yet, start with a patch, adjust to your taste/needs, and save ! While there has been some negative commentary on the Synth portion of the board being somewhat limited, I did not find it to be offensive or lacking as some claim. If you need a synth patch for a few songs in a band, this will more than meet your needs. If you're in a techno, electronica, Rave band, or, looking for insane Dub wobbles, you need to go with SoundBlox or a dedicated synth system manufacturer. Feature: I have only scratched the surface of this unit's capabilities. Thus far I haven't found myself wanting for anything. Parts an materials are top notch. If I had one bone to pick, it's that the main effect lights (versus the screen) are insanely bright. So much so that they can make it diffcult to read the screen under normal household light. On a stage, you'll experience retna burn ! I fixed this simply by cutting small pieces of electrician's tape and covering approximately 70% of the LEDs. Took me less than 5 minutes. Now I can clearly see which effects are on without being blinded. Ease of Use: Many out of the box click and go patches are usable. Again, I have barely scratched the surface of the programming aspects of this unit. You can adjust pre programmed patches on the fly. While the programming functionaility of the GT-10B is initially a bit intimidating, it is intuitive once you read the instructions. I am amazed that patches can be reconfigured in to groups that make sense to the owner i.e. gigging, recording, practicing or group them by amp models, chorus effects, synth stuff etc. Quality: This thing is a beast in terms of build quality. It looks and feels sturdy enough to run it over with my truck. I can't imagine it ever breaking short of dropping it off of a third story balcony. Value: Value is always subjective so I can't make a blanket statement that this unit is a steal for everyone. In my case, I wanted a high quality unit with usable patches and the ability to extensively customize and store patches. The only other multi FX unit that I felt met my needs is the Roland VR 99 at 1600.00 or three times the cost. From this perspective, the GT-10B represents one heck of a value for my needs. Manufacturer Support: Have not needed to use Support. The Wow Factor: The wow factor for me has been some of the modeling patches. Depending on the sound I am trying to dial in, they seem to add that certain something. I played for years with out any effects other than compression. And yes, managed to get great tone out of my gear.With the GT-10B, I find that noodling with it helps tremendously with my creatively. It tends to steer me toward music realms outside of my comfort zone. Overall: The GT-10B easily exceeded my expectations.
Style of Music: Wow, everything. Funk, Jazz, R and B, classic rock, rock, alternative, etc. If the style makes people shake their butts, then co
