Got a couple questions about this fx unit. I love the distortion on my 6505! The cleans kinda suck so can I just use the cleans and effects on the boss and then switch over to my amps distortion? Can I use effects on my amps distortion meaning can I put a delay or other effects on the distortion without affecting the tone of the amps distortion? Any serious input is greatly appreciated!

Im sure this applies to other multi fx pedals. No one on this website has a multi fx pedal?

I don't know if I completely got what you're saying but i've never heard of a pedal that produces clean, if you know what I'm trying to say as well

I like multi-fx as well as the next guy. (probably more) but I have to draw the line at putting one on a 6505. If i were to buy a head that was in the grand range i'm certainly not going to plug in a multi fx board. I'm going to get some serious single pedals to do a specific job. It's one thing to beef up my valve junior and make it a versatile home practice amp, but a 6505? Now I don't know much about the 6505 but you need to be looking in to mods or tube changes. Something other then a digital signal processed into a $1000 head. I could be wrong but that's my opinion.

edit: yeah, what 3p4rd said. I forgot to mention you need a fair clean for the multi to sound like anything anyway.

nothing wrong with it. 4 cable method works. still get tube dynamics as well as the diversity of the MFX
Grammar and spelling omitted as an exercise for the reader.

Basically I want to use the clean channel on the boss and the distortion on my amp switching back and forth. Also can the fx from the boss be used on the amps distortion to add delay and such? Does that help?

How are you going to use a clean channel on the boss? that doesn't make sense.

But yeah you can kick on your amps distortion and use different effects from the boss, that'll work

Here is a video you can look at.

Found this online as I use the GT-10 as well.


Goes through setting up the Boss to control your amp channels.
Maintains your head's tone while using the pedal for effects.

Think this is what you are looking for.

Perhaps he'd use an amp model like a Twin Reverb or AC30 with characteristics he's looking for? I dunno if it would work, though.

4 cable method. Puts the effects in your amps effects loop so you can use your preamp distortion.

There is no clean mode on the boss gt-10. All it will do is colour your current clean sound, it wont give you a totally new clean. If you use an overdrive setting on a boss gt-10 with low gain, it could make your clean into something you like.

And yes you can put effects on the amps distortion without it affecting the distortion as such, but adding more distortion from the boss gt-10 is obviously gonna change it.

Why are you guys acting so confused about a MULTIEFFECTS PROCESSOR having a clean channel?! My multieffects has several different amp models, 2 of which are "clean". You just pick that digital amp model and run it through.

yeah, but you can't put that on top of the amps distortion and it will clear up the distortion, thats what it sounds like the TS wants, and thats impossible

ohh THATS what he's asking, yeah you're right.

You should just use your footswitch for DS/Clean on your amp, and when you wanna use chorus or somthing just use the effect processor ****. Not that hard.

guys guys guys... he said his clean channel isnt great, so using the gt in the loop on clean sounds WILL help improve them. simply make a new patch for the distortion channel with no eq or modeling or effects. The gt 10 will do your amp channel switching aswell, so you could end up with a fairly versatile system.

its not brain surgery!

I just bought the gt-10 myself. Ive been running it in the effects loop of my valveking, running about 4 different distortion pedals into the front of the amp. Sounds GREAT. Dont get me wrong, its not like the gt10 doesnt colour the sound at all, but that colouration seems like its liveable with and is worth it for the multitude of delays and mods and other cool stuff the gt10 has. Put it this way, i would not use the thin sound of the gt-10's distortions, but coupled with a good distortion pedal or amp channel distortion, the gt10 really comes into it's own, well thats what i think after using it for a few days - ive yet to jam with my band, so that will be the true test.

scott58: pedals are great and everything and prob will sound better (marginally), but nothing else offers the true versatility of a good processor through the effeects loop, adding digital benefits of dsp processing at the sime time as removng the dreaded tap dance (remember the gt10 will do amp channel switching too) combined with the warmth and sensitivity of a valve amp - its a no brainer for me!!

its not 1968 anymore, why not embrace modern tech and combine it with the tried and trusted tonal niceness of valve amps to get the best of both worlds.

There a lot of pros out there doing it!!!!
