I bought this Boss because I wanted an all-in-one solution to play in pubs.

I put it back in its box after two hours!!! And returned it to the store (30-day money back warranty).

You'll need to get your ears checked if you believe this unit sounds good!!!

I tried out clean, crunch and distortion settings.

I connected it directly to a mixer feeding RCF310A and tried out different amp simulations (JC120, combo amp, etc.). Although I tried every possible EQ setting, the sound was awful.

It sounds either too metallic or to dark. And forget the factory presets.

My old GX700 sounds much better.

I've already owned different gear: ADA MP1, JMP1, POD XT (awful, the POD v2 is ten times better), Johnson J-Station (not bad).

Currently, the best and not too expensive setup is a Tonelab with the speaker simulation of a Rocktron Replifex!


It's once again a marketing thing.

They packed the effects they developed in the last 10 years in a nice-looking silver foot board that you'll probably sell again six months later to buy a GT20.
