Boss GT-100
What are the effects or types of effects available?
- Modeling of effects pédalles
- Amp modeling
- Modeling speakers

Are they edited? Via a Mac / PC editor?

Is this a rack or rack MODEL?
not easy pedal board

What technology is used? (Analog, digital, tube ...)
Full digital

What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
- Midi
- 3.5 stereo output jack
- USB audio


The general configuration is it simple?
Yes assé easy after a few days of use, but the best is the edition of the patch via a PC or Mac.


The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
Very good modeling of effects including mouth amps and speakers.

Which instruments do you use?
Electric guitars, most often equiped double coil pickups.


Which instruments do you use?
For almost one year now.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Digitech 355, but the Boss GT100 is much more complete and easy to edit live or Repette.

What is the particular feature you like best and least?
+ Robust Product
+ Easy edition
+ Range of use - from Jazz to Metal greasy :)
- One entry
- Weight

How would you rate the quality / price?
Ok very good investment that will me much qq years.

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Yes and no studio is always better with a real pedal board with real pédalles of effects.
The digitization of sound is always heard malgrés this upscale home Boss.
But given the ease of use and ease the move between a home and the local Repette ...

Everything was listed in other reviews


Personally, I found the clear


I ADORE the only effect that does not yet meet my expectation is Reverb> but I am sure when "tchehan" It's only a matter of time


4 days has options (Slicer Larcen etc ...) fantastic diversifying my other multi-effects (Zoom G9 2 tt - Line 6 X3 Live - Digitech RP 255 - Boss ME 25 - Roland GR 55 ...)

FRANKLY, I do not understand or share negative comments> Most musicians do not take enough time to tame and understand the equipment and want immediate results (and gives a bad image to the wrong gear) see the launch - which stone waste / error

See manufacturer specifications


Simple yes, but it is a multi-effects capabilities enormous. It is simple because there is a function "Rappide" selecting an amp or style and addapte with a slider to 4 axes + or - in one way or another and opportunities for the same amp are important .
But if we want to solve everything, amp, effects and cross-references to those without it from a configuration, it is not within the reach of beginners.
The manual could be done better, but it's not bad.
There is a demo video on the site builder, but in English.


Several possibilities:
In a good tube amp, using the pre-amp of it and the effects of GT-100 is a treat (4 cables method).
In a good amp lamp, you can also just use the power amp of the amp and pre-amp Gt-100 and its effects. The quality is good and the advantage is to have a large sound palette.
In a transistor amp, I have not tried.
I use it in the effects loop of my Marshall JVM


Very satisfied, I made my presets (ten) with either the pre-amp or without my JVM. I use it a lot as the headset when I can not make any noise at home and it is very convenient, but not possible to use the preamp of the amp.
Only downside, there is a good application to configure the Boss via PC, but Boss has not yet updated its driver (driver) for Windows 8, so I do not know to use it since I made the update my PC

Boss GT-100
see the website boss and other notices


use very intuitive, dual screen support.


medium, medium, see below


all depends on what you search, and your equipment.
Let me explain: I was looking for something compact to play in repet without several pedals.
FYI, it'm 18 I play guitar, so I became demanding.
the problem with the gt 100 is that you can do many things, but is average.
effects, overdrives, the distos are average.
Then, whether you live branches on the amp or in the loop, it significantly denature your amp.
I play on a mesa ta-30, and I lost all the dynamics of an amp claase A.
So, if you start the guitar, it's a great machine, you can really have fun on your way otherwise.
since I'm a pedal-board finally, I have 5 pedals and hard as it faut.d Moreover, same for the pedals, you need analog pedals with true-bypass, otherwise you will certainly the same problem with the digital sound processing.
I will look if you have more questions tomorrow.
I hope it was not too late for the answer!
