I've saved for a bit now, and can finally afford either of these. Till now I've used single effect pedals, but I think I'm just going to buy one of these multi-effects and not have to buy for a while again. So I've come to these two options, and I'd like to know which one you guys prefer, and why.

There may be a few staunch single-pedal guys here so I'll just say upfront, I don't want to spend thousands of dollars on an amp and single pedals anymore.

My current main guitars are Jackson Kelly KE3, ESP LTD MH-400 and a Epiphone LP. I have a Crate FW120 half stack, but I'm just tired of moving an amp around to gig,especially when you're playing at a low level stage with drunk people around, so I want a multi effect pedal that I can connect directly into the PA system with good sound. Which one should I go for, the GT-10 or the X3 Live? My main aim is to get some solid amp tones with some crazy distortion, but I'd like to get the overall better package. Let me know guys,thanks a ton!
I don't mean what I write in my posts.So don't argue back on it,and don't check me..Because,though I don't mean them,they are the only way I can increase my post count.
i guess they are pretty identical sounding... especially when it comes to distortion and amp modelling
the only advantages that the X3 has are the option to also connect a mic or a bass to it.
So you could use the bass and your guitars or two guitars through your multieffect at the same time

It can sound much much better than in that vid. That guy has no clue how to dial in tones.

Either unit is great, I personally prefer the amp modelling of the X3, but the effects of the Boss.
