Boss GT-001 Desktop Guitar Effects Processor
Boss Product Overview
The BOSS GT-001 packs everything from the GT-100 Version 2.0 in a desktop processor for your studio or rig.
Its compact design reduces clutter without sacrificing utility, making it a good looking and easy to use processor. BOSS have added an XLR input so you can run vocals and acoustic guitars through the GT-001 as well.
Just like the GT-100, the GT-001 offers almost infinite sound creation possibilities, multiple amps, effects chains and a plethora of routing options. If you can hear it in your head, you can find it in this pedal. What's more, the guitar-to-MIDI function opens the door to the world of MIDI without having to install a special pickup.

My studio recordings have just got so much better thanks to the GT-001. Still in early stages of getting through all the features but so far I'm very happy with it.
Great product - living up to expectations..
From the Boss product description the GT 001 seemed to offer a versatile, portable solution to pro sounds on the fly. I quickly realised,on checking it out, that the sounds are very ' synthetic ' and far from pro quality, especially through headphones. Overall I found the GT 001 a huge disappointment, and not a experience I want to repeat. My honest advice to prospective buyers is try it out in depth before you buy. If it floats your boat go for it. In my case my GT 001 boat definitely sunk without trace... A huge thumbs down.
This is a superb piece of kit does what it says on the tin and then some.
Something small so I can practice with out getting everything out.
