Boss GT-100 Multieffects Review

GT-100

A superior level

COSM is the Boss and Roland technology for the emulation. The GT-100 is equipped with an improved version of this technology. The new AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE functions can be used to vary how the virtual amps and effects work, and this extends the floorboard flexibility, since the emulated devices become a starting point for your own sounds and patches.

The new user interface

User Interface

Thanks to the two LCD displays, 8 knobs and the graphic interface, effects creation is really fast and comfortable, with every parameter that is directly accessible, and every patch can be controlled and adjusted in real-time.

A/B Divide

This new feature is really remarkable and extends a lot the flexibility. The user can use a different amp, or a different effect, for each channel, but the most important innovation is that the signal can be divided in two channels according to the frequency or the dynamics, and the user can assign a different amp and a different effect.
Really remarkable.

Effects

The manual includes the list of all the patches, with an exhaustive explanation of the characteristics, the used preamps, and the parameters controlled by the pedal.

The ACCEL Pedal

This function lets you control, with the expression pedal, more than one parameter simultaneously.

Certainly, a good product

The extraordinary flexibility, the great sound quality, much clean and dynamic, and some improvements in the organization of the menu, are the main added values of this new Boss floorboard. The price of the GT-100, about 400 euros, is important, but this multi-effect is certainly an excellent purchase for your guitar.
