Boss GT-3
Everything has been said.

Note the presence of an "input distortion" foreign controlled from the pedals. This allows you to use your favorite distortion as if it were a distortion of availables in the GT3 and operate it with one of the buttons on the pedal.

PS: This is the second boss pedals GT (the first being the gt5)


Very easy to use.

Those who tell you they are not doing should not be computer savvy either!

on the other hand, get to the sound you're looking, that's difficult and it takes time because there are a multitude of parameters to be able to change the parameter and the information displayed on the screen are not transcendent (the name alone does not allow us always to know "Why this")

There are several version of the manual (simple 40 pages to 173 pages long)

Some changes have no effect on the sound (that one is a combo or a stack)


The sound is not as good as the separate pedals, it is clear that there will never be the same sound of pedals 32 for only 400 €! ! !

The modulations are sufficient, the distortion is not all useful (you will end up always using the same: the blues, and disto1 disto2

The reverb and delay ... blah blah, it makes his job but does not say "wouawwwwou, it's great."

The amp simulation: While there, many users did not understand what is the point: it is not a simulator but a preamp, so use the GT3 as a pre- amp (thus linking to live in the fx loop of your amp) to realize that it works well! ! ! on the other hand, as a simulator (to save on a PC or put it in a mixer) that either!

I bought it the day of its release, this is my first multi and I do not regret it.


Swiss Army knife a foot that will vout many services but not worth the separate pedals.

Boss multi effect in the first of the GT range, non-editable pc, but few use it as a midi controller.


So it's really not simple at all, editing is as easy on the multis, but if you fancy creating your sound is another story.
the manual is too long and knock out, I drop it, it is far from the box stomb


The effects are good, it's the boss, like most many are decorative effect, but it remains


I've had 8 years, it was my first multi-and first effect, connect a 20watt Stagg raahh the time it dates me all that ... I was 12 years. I try the zoom of the time and it was from there that I wanted a multi purpose and for my birthday my mother bought me this one of OCCAZ, the guy to buy a Bradai any lamp.

it is a good multi, I keep it in a corner now, I do not want to part with it even though I no longer used.

If it now I'll not do it again, but for fun yes

Boss GT-3
All pedals boss, and COSM amp simulator pedal with a few more trinkets (slicer, preamp for acoustic ...).
20/24 bits, good everything.
MIDI in out for the pedals, hehe, it does not transform your stratovolcano in MIDI guitar ^ _ ^


We must delve into the manual a few hours, but is pulled quickly sounds very good.
Note EZ-edit mode, completely inutlie for my taste. There is no simpler than the "normal" mode, and it is rather difficult to settle.

The expression pedal is assignable to anything, and it's quite interresting. Crushing his intuitive.

So very easy, very convenient, but after 3 hours of use.


The effects are good, no nasty surprises for all that is conventional.
The amp simulators are not great, compared to a pod is a bit cold, but it helps out well

But the effects that work with the pitch (octave / whammy, guitar synth ...) are relous! The computing power of the beast does not exploit all of it effectively! The latency is huge, and you need a big signal, just hyper, so that it is recognized without problem. The best thing is to have its next whammy ...

I pass on the simulation of microphones that turn, supposedly a simple, hambucker is bogus, and it works poorly.
Feedback is fun, if you have no amp at hand.

6 pask alone on a console, a sound card or sound, the preamp not sound great, and some original effects are really bad.


It's a GT5 which has been removed quelqles fake things and a switch.
The color effects are very good, but they could do without harmonisers and self riff, if it was to swing such a thing.

GT3 + amp = great combination correct

Do not expect miracles in home studio, but it helps out anyway.

I add one last thing, the sax of the group I played with who uses maintenet without using the effects of distortion / saturation / simulations lamps etc, and it goes really well.

Boss GT-3
simulation of acoustic guitar is a plus


Note the simulation for HP préemplis ... the output line is therefore registrable (as with a red box).


We can do everything, reggae, jazz, metal, rock ...


For the price I paid for it or (250 € used) I could not find better!
Not like I play in groups, I used to make components on pc register. Even the distos tear with HP calculator.

... Good stuff ...
