Boss GT-100 Floor Amp and Effects Pedal

The Boss GT-100 is a mega multi-FX pedal with next-generation amp modeling. The long-awaited follow up to the GT-10 has arrived. Meet the BOSS effects flagship, the GT-100, boasting next-generation amp modeling that recreates vintage amps as well as providing COSM tones that soar into the future. The user interface has been improved with a unique dual-LCD system, and EZ TONE has been enhanced with AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE features. The GT-100 is a powerhouse processor that spans from classic to futuristic in a friendly, rugged, road-worthy unit.

Beyond Vintage

With its next-generation COSM processor, the GT-100 ushers in an era of expression and sonic capabilities. Recreating the meticulous details of vintage amps and how they behave, the GT-100 excels in not only cloning classic amps, but provides a world of unimagined tones as well. The AMP CUSTOMIZE function lets you mutate classic amps beyond reality. Construct completely, unimagined sounds!

Simple and Intuitive User Interface

The GT-100's unique dual-LCD and eight-knob user interface provides fast access and intuitive control. There are no menus to navigate; every function is instantly available. The tone-customizing functionality has been improved as well. All patches, amps, and overdrive/distortions can be created from scratch and/or customized with the friendly graphical TONE GRID.

Tonal Possibilities with the ACCEL Pedal

A dimension of expression is available with the ACCEL pedal, which enables control of multiple parameters simultaneously, as well as time-variant effects such as FEEDBACKER, S-BEND, TWIST, etc. Experiment with creative combinations of parameters, interacting in real time with the pedal.

A/B Channel Divide Function

Another notable feature onboard the GT-100 is the versatile A/B Channel Divide. Assign different amps and effects to each channel, and divide the signal not only by dynamics, but by frequency as well, with each channel capable of driving its own effects and amps settings. The range of tonal possibilities gets wider, and wilder! Assign smooth, mild lead tones to the mid-to-high pitches, for example, and heavy, cutting tones to the lower notes.

Features:

- Advanced COSM amps that model vintage amp tones and delivers never-before-heard tones
- 38 seconds of loop time, 19 seconds in stereo
- Dual-LCD for simple and intuitive operation with direct access to every parameter
- Improved EZ Tone TONE feature with graphical TONE GRID for constructing patches; AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE lets you easily create original amps and overdrive/distortion by customizing their behavior
- ACCEL pedal for simultaneous control of multiple parameters

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned the Boss ME-33, Gt-6, and just recently upgraded to the Boss GT-100. So because of that, I am only going by what I know. This GT-100 has really impressed me...With the ease of use, the looks, and the TONE!! I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on this unit. I looked at the POD 500HD, the Zoom G5, and the Mustang Floorboard. To be honest, It was a hard choice between the POD500HD and the GT-100....but after receiving the GT-100 and plugging it in....It won me over Immediately. Online you will find forums where they talk about the POD500HD being better as far as Amp Modeling....Don't let that fool you. My Boss GT-100 sounds perfect!! Yours will too!! Manufacturer support?..I recently called them to assist in a programming situation, they were very helpful, and I didn't feel like I was "imposing" on them. zZounds....As always, your company and staff are wonderful, Thanks for everything.
