This review is from: Boss GT-10 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal
I tour and use the GT-10 through a Roland JC-120 Amp. I have no problem dialing in the right sound for any style I may end up having to play. The sounds are clean and professional, and the case is tough as nails. It does such a good job, I can bypass my amp and plug directly into the PA or house system. It's easy to use with a hand full of dedicated knobs, and an expression pedal. It also has a super clean bypass and tuner so I can still use my George L's cables and hear my guitar's beautiful tone. The stereo output is great too. This is the processor I've always been looking for, and I recommend it to everyone.0

This review is from: Boss GT-10 Guitar Multi Effects PedalI guess most who consider buying this are seriously talented guitar shredders. I'm down on the other end. Twenty years ago I bought a beautiful new USA Strat. Very nice. I played it a decent amount for about a year and then just got kind of bored with it and my progress. One problem was that I had very specific ideas in my head about what I wanted to play. That Strat had a nice tone, sure, but it wasn't my favorite band doing what my favorite band does.

Now there are Youtube resources, great software, RockBand3, tabs on-line etc. Because of this I started playing again on my acoustic. Eventually I was ready to buy another electric guitar. But I did it very differently this time. I bought a Strat-like Squier on... Read more

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Boss GT-10 Guitar Multi Effects PedalI have had this for 2 weeks now and I am in tone heaven. My biggest concern was I was going to spend all my time programming rather than playing, but that is not the case. There are about 100 preset patches that will get you started right out of the box. I have not programmed a patch yet, and instead have been enjoying all the preset patches (with names and sounds that will be familiar) and the amazing tones. If you have used stomp boxes before you will have no problem getting started. I will add to this review as I continue to use the GT10, but here is what I think so far.
Lots of preset patches to get you started out of the box.
USB interface is great and easy to use - recording is crystal clear.
Chorus, flanger, delay, distortion all are top notch.
The recording capabilities could be more flexible. Would be nice to record a riff and hold it into memory rather than play a... Read more
