Product Description

The GT-6B Bass Effects Processor is Boss's first new bass multi-effects processor in over five years. This fully professional floor-based unit offers new COSM� Bass Amp Modeling with new modeled compression, plus other "must-have" effects like COSM overdrive/distortion, COSM wah, and reverb/delay. There's also a true analog bypass, plus XLR and digital outputs for recording applications — making the GT-6B the leader in high-quality multi-effects for bass.

Features
Professional bass multi-effects processor with COSM technology

True analog bypass and 24-bit converters for uncompromised sound quality

COSM Bass Amp Modeling recreates the tone of many of the greatest bass amps and speaker cabinets in history

New! COSM Compression effect modeled after 4 well-known compressors

Ultra-intuitive interface with analog-style knobs; built-in expression and control pedals

Versatile effects including "Auto Slap" and sound-on-sound looping

Boss's best synth bass sounds with incredible tracking

Balanced XLR output and coaxial digital output for recording

Unrivaled Sound Quality
When designing the GT-6B, Boss' primary focus was quality�quality you can hear in every component from its 24-bit converters to its true analog bypass, allowing bass players to switch to the pure tone of their bass guitar when desired. A balanced XLR output and coaxial digital output ensure the highest sound quality when recording, giving the GT-6B a decisive advantage over other bass multi-effects.

COSM Modeling for Bass
Thanks to proprietary COSM technology, the GT-6B can model the sound of 6 classic bass amps including "Concert 810," "Session," "T.E." "Bass 360," "B Man," and "Flip Top." But amps are only half the story, so the GT-6B also includes several speaker cabinet models like 8 x 10, 4 x 10, 2 x 15, and others. Now you can get great tone direct!

Killer Effects with COSM
The GT-6B features Boss' finest "bread-and-butter" effects — including chorus, reverb, delay, flanger, and more — all tuned for bass guitar. And with COSM Overdrive/Distortion Modeling and Wah Modeling, bass players can get some of their favorite tones and effects without using amps or noisy stompboxes. The GT-6B also features new COSM Compression, which offers models of several well-known compressors. With all of these amazing COSM effects, bassists can literally just plug in and play.

Auto Slap, Looping, and More
New performance effects include an Auto Slap feature, which creates automatic slap patterns using Preset or User templates, plus sound-on-sound looping for creating loops "on the fly" — even fat synth bass sounds with killer tracking. There's nothing else like it!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (148 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Read My Advice Under "Overall""
Sound: If you're looking for a variety of amp models and sounds, this is the rig for you. You can get a bunch of different sounds by messing around with the parameters for each amp model. Feature: It actually has way too many features for me. Having four different compressors is great. You can really tweak your sound that way. Having a bass roll-off on the chorus is key to using it on the bass and this has it. The reverb is of pretty good quality. Being able to set the frequency and Q for the EQ is very useful. Quality: This puppy is a TANK. I can't imagine it ever breaking. Value: They took the guitar model and added some stuff for bass. I would rather have them remove some of the useless stuff (IMHO) and make a less expensive version. Manufacturer Support: N/A Overall: I almost returned this, but thank God I didn't. Forget the presets. Really. Most of them are to show off the various effects, not to help you dial in a sound. Instead start with EZ Tone or simply turn off all of the effects and start with a preamp model. You're better off building from scratch. What I did was take each amp model and copy it to a user bank (U1, U2, etc). I then set up the compression, a chorus, a reverb and one other effect. For each model I made three copies (U1-1, U1-2, etc). I then tweaked each one of those. I now have 24 presets that give me a wide range of usable sounds.
Style of Music: Classic Rock, Blues Rock, Boogie Rock, a hint of grunge

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "It's BIG and BAD and RED like the FLOATING HEAD of DEATH itself!"
Sound: The stock sounds are extensive and very good, but the great thing was getting deep into the EQ settings and making my own parameters (it allows you a lot of finesse) since I wanted to customize a variety of distortion effects. Also, now the flange, reverb, etc. are all in the unit, too, so I can thoroughly tweak my sound to best effect. This thing lets me do that more than anything else I've seen or used. My PSA-1 rack is now only used as a preamp on a clean setting... and I thought THAT was the bomb before. Go figure. Feature: Analog knobs for immediate sound tweaking is KING. Easy to understand and, more importantly, remember how to use. Quality: Made like a tank and well thought out. It's big and bad and red like the floating head of death itself. The two guitarists in my band are still furiously jealous, even with their digitech crap and pedals and all. Revenge is mine at last! Value: It's only a 7 because in a perfect world the government would issue these to every bass player inthe world for free. It's a little pricey... hell, it's very pricey.. but totally worth it. Manufacturer Support: I can only say that since I haven't needed it at all, that's the best support there is. The Wow Factor: Like I said before, it's big and bad and red like the floating head of death itself! Overall: I'd get it again, it's tough like brick in face, and has everything I can see needing. Other stuff didn't compare at all except the digitech equivalent, but I tried a cheaper digitech pedal and couldn't see upgrading that, so returned it and got the Boss. Always did love thier pedals, anyway, so I just did the right thing and don't regret it a bit.
Style of Music: B-29 on fire crashing into a field of poppies.
