    As a long time Line 6 fan when L6 decided to drop designing tone pedals for bass guitars and put out the all in one guitar and bass effect units, that upgrade didn’t work for me and I looked at the Boss GT 10B. As a bass player who likes to change it up whether it’s metal, classic rock, R&B, Pop or Original I want the sound to fit that tone or genre of music. The GT 10B does that for me, playing covers, I can go from a Beatles 60’s sound and everything between to today’s music and for original music I’m very happy with my tone. You can dig into the GT 10B and get the tones or sound you like or use the presets off the fly which are fine for most.

    With every multi effects pedal there will be preset tones you will never use or think of playing however there are a lot of tones for everyone on the GT 10B. Regardless of your amp the tone from the GT 10B will bring your old amp to life or give your amp a sound you didn’t know it can produce. Of course if your amp has seen its days no band-aid will help its sound spend $500 on a new bass amp, not a pedal.

    At around $500 it’s a good investment and came with a power supply. However if you’re a bass player that’s not technical with equipment and been using Compression & EQ “which is perfectly legal” this pedal may not be for you. If you need to change your tone, put some edge on your bass sound and add some dimension to the band your in I highly recommend the Boss GT 10B.

    This pedal is amazing! You get endless possibilities with this thing. The sky is the limit. Not all of the effects you get are top of the line, but it does a pretty good job at most things. If you only need one specific sound, you may be better off buying a high end single pedal instead of this board. But, as much as this thing costs, it’s absolutely worth the price.

    As with anything so powerful, it can be hard to use if you don’t take the time to learn how it works. However, there are plenty of easy to follow youtube videos going over everything this pedal can do.

    The Boss GT-10B is a very good product and has nearly unlimited potential. Tremendous features and quality craftsmanship, there is however, a bit of a learning curve. Make no mistake, this is one terrific box. It simply is NOT overly intuitive if you have no experience with the new boss/roland pedals. It is also not a cheap piece of gear. Still, if you want a qulaity piece of gear that can grow with your music and musicianship, then you would be hard pressed to find a better bass multi-effect pedal than the GT-10B. Enjoy!

    ****Update – 08/02/2013. Unfortunately, I must rescind my endorsement of the Boss GT-10B. I Purchased this $500.00 piece of gear in April of 2012, roughly a year later and I have been dealing with an intermitant problem that causes the unit to lose about 85% of its gain and sound distorted. It happened the first time during a service at my church gig. I had to pull the unit and go dry. I did not use the unit for the next two or three weeks. When I went back to use it, it seemed to be working normally. Then a couple of weeks later, I had the same issue, this time right before a gig during sound check. Again, I had to run my bass dry.

    I took the GT-10B to a local tech to have it repaired and by the time they were able to check it, the GT-1B, of course, was functioning correctly. They called Boss when they could not find a problem and the Boss representatives stated that this is not a known issue.

    Therefore, I can no longer recommend that you purchase this unit. While I no longer gig at the rate that I once did, I still am playing two to three times a week. As such, I need gear that I can depend on and the very direct truth is, I can NOT depend on the Boss GT-10B. $500.00 for a piece of gear that lasts a little over a year (out of warranty) is not something that I can afford.
