I was looking for a quality floor based multi-effects unit that would allow me to simplify my setup. Until now I have been using a rack mounted preamp with a MIDI control panel and few effect pedals tacked on to it. Having to set up and tear down was major pain in the @$$. I tried out a few others from other manufactures, but this one had the best sound and versatility than the others. The GT-6 allows me to do everything I did before and more in one floor pedal. I Paid $395 at Make'N'Music for it in Frederick,Md.

I love the sound and quality of the effects. I have used it through a couple different amps and straight into my mixing board and I continue to be impressed. The presets are pretty good also. It definatly has everything I wanted in it and allows me to do everything I want to do.

The manual lacks some detail and is hard to follow at first. I had to read the thing several times and fiddle with the unit before getting it. Once you understand the unit though the manual becomes a better tool. The foot switches are also a bit close, so I found myself bumping more than one at a time occasionally.

I have not had it long and have not travelled with it, but it seems pretty rugged to me. I dont feel like I need to baby it, but I probably will anyway.

I have bought several toys for myself through the years but this is the first one I find myself anxious to go home and play with some more. This unit is packed with a great array effects and sounds. It suits my style of playing so well I almost think it was designed for me. I am completly satisfied with this purchase. Between this and the Taylor I dont think I could have a better Christmas.....Happy Holidays.
