Boss GT-100 Guitar Effects Processor

Boss GT-100

Building on decades of experience in sound design and amp modeling Roland has remodeled all the COSM amplifiers in the new GT-100 Guitar Effects Processor. Not only conventional vintage amp models are included in the GT-100 but also all-new amps that deliver amazingly transparent clean tones, and ultra-high gain modern sounds.

At the core of the GT-100 is BOSS’ very fast new proprietary DSP chip. This new muscle gives the COSM amps and effects clarity and dynamic response. This new responsiveness takes things one giant step closer to the feel and expressiveness of the world’s finest tube-based amplifiers.

The GT-100 is also a powerful multi-effects processor packed with a huge array of effects, including overdrives, distortions, delays, pitch shifters, modulation, reverb, and many more. The newly developed ACCEL pedal lets players create explosive effects in live performance by adjusting multiple effects parameters in real time with one simple foot press.

The GT-100’s user interface has been completely redesigned as well, offering easy, intuitive operation that greatly improves on previous designs. Dual displays make navigation simple while programming tones, with intuitive parameter adjustment via easy-to-grab knobs. The GT-100 also includes the acclaimed EZ TONE, which gives everyone from beginners to pros the ability to dial up world-class tones with just a few tweaks. Newly added to the EZ TONE are the AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE functions, which enable users to create original amps and overdrive and distortion.

it comes housed in a road-tested, all-metal GT chassis with a sleek black finish. Eight onboard footswitches provide control over patch selection, as well as immediate access to the built-in Phrase Looper and ACCEL functions. The integrated heavy-duty expression pedal offers foot control over volume, wah, pitch effects, and more. Additionally, the new quick-access Manual mode instantly transforms the GT-100 from a patch-based multi-effects unit to a pedalboard full of legendary stomps with individual on/off control.

Available now with an MSRP of $769 and a street price around $550. For more information go to www.rolandconnect.com
