All you'll ever need plus some.,
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

The GT-10 from a novice guitarist's perspective,
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. Having just blown my budget on a $600 guitar, I wasn't really feeling keen to buy a dozen effects pedals at $50-$100 each to experiment with. Eventually, I got rid of the Strat.
These days, however, trying to learn to play is nothing like it was 20 years ago. 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

Amazing processor...the best there is,
This review is from: Boss GT-10 Guitar Multi Effects PedalA buddy of mine bought a POD X3 and we compared them head up on tone, features, etc. The GT-10 won hands down. PODs are really better for metal anyway...if you want nice clean tones, great overdrives, nice sounds for Jazz, Blues, Americana, and classic rock, THIS is your only choice.
Some people say its too complicated. So just play the presets, duh. Every sound you could want is there. But when you DO decided to dive into the more technical features, you will figure out that this is an infinitely configurable, sophisticated hi-tech tool for grownups and smart people. Even if you dont want to do deep editing, you will still want the GT-10 because the tones are simply superior to every other processor.
The coolest function is the new EZ-Tone...You tell the GT-10 whether you are using a single coil or humbucker, you pick a genre (Blues, Liverpool, Studio, Country, 70's Rock, 80's Metal, etc) then scroll through the preamps listed. Pick one and you go to a... Read more
