            Tons of effects and amp simulators in a small table top unit. Perfect companion for your recording rig. Pretty much everything you would get in Boss's best floor based effects unit in a compact go anywhere package. This is a real hands-on product review from Brent @ Sam Ash Las Vegas.

              Comments about Boss GT-001 Desktop Guitar Effects Processor:

              With more and more musicians recording at home on their computers, Boss got ahead of the curve and made something so freaking practical. The sounds and great tone they've been providing and evolving over their years in the industry all form-fitted and vacuum packed into this awesome device haha. Its sleek, it doesn't take any space at all, and gives you pro-studio sound. Same COSM technology as their flagship pedal boards and effect processors without the hassle and heaviness. Now this isn't a live performance tool, so get it if you just want another great studio tool to add to your collection and accessibility of amazing tone!

                I love Boss guitar effects. This is a great way to incorporate those classic tones in to your home recording rig. The usb connectivity lets it interface with your computer. The other cool thing is that it has a XLR input built in. You can use this unit for acoustic guitar and possibly for vocals if you wish to get adventurous.

                Its great for practice, home recording, and for effects in the mix.

                      Great portable replacement for a recording interface (like an mbox) at a fraction of the cost. Plug in a mic and a guitar and you're ready to go. You can also use it in conjunction with your recording setup via the stereo 1/4" outs. The guitar sims are fantastic, directly taken from their killer stomp model GT-100. The coolest thing yet, it has a built-in guitar to MIDI without the need for an external pickup! Staff reviewer @ Sam Ash

                        The GT-001 is essentially the Boss GT-100 built into a compact processor that you can set on your studio desk. It provides all the great Boss effects and amp modeling you love while staying small enough to not overtake your entire studio desktop. It is easy to set up presets for your favorite tones, and works as a dependable recording interface. There is the option of adding an expression pedal if wanted, but was omitted in the design to keep it compact.

                          The GT-001 Desktop Guitar Effects Processor from BOSS is yet another in their ever-growing line of COSM-based effects units. This unit has many of the sounds users familiar with the GT-100 will recognize, including amp models.

                          This is a great and fun tool for practice and especially for recording, with a ton of sounds and effects at your fingertips. As an added bonus, the GT-001 includes a Phantom-powered XLR mic input for your favorite mic or acoustic guitar.

                          The guitar effects are what you expect from Boss. Great overdrives and lush choruses, excellent delay settings. The Amp models are great for direct recording, and the included vocal effects were a pleasant surprise!

                          Boss continues to expand their technology, and the GT-001 is an easy-to-use and extremely convenient unit for any guitarist or studio to have all your sounds right there within reach when you need it!
