Sound — 9
i am currently useing a Gibson sg with a Roland Cube 30X amp...with sevan different Wah pedals that all sound resnobaly good youl be spoiled for choice..the tone overall is great..and the thing is practically stuffed with effects..half of them are impossible to use in a songbut still fun to mess around with..you can easily get the sound of bands like slipknot to neil young and nirvana some patches even hint to bands(knotforget slipknot...etc)..the distortion can go to a light crunch to brain melting metal in the spaceof a few seconds..with a built in looper witch you can loop over previusly looped riffs.
Overall Impression — 8
I play very varied types of music rock or metal mostly but sometimes punk or even blues..and this thing covers them all brilliantly..iv been playing for 5 years and this this is one the most versitile pedals iv ever heard..before I got this pedal the shop let me borow a me-70(becaus of a mix up)and this isdeffintly the better oedal..iv never gotten bored with it..the best thing about it is the sound and theamount of effects..the WORST thing about it is how complicated it is :(
Reliability & Durability — 10
You could throw this over a cliff and i say it would only have a scratch on it... Its like a block of steel.this is as sturdy as a land rover..I would deffintly gig this without a backup...the thing never wares or breakes down.. not a scrathe on it and iv hade it about a year..if you want a reliable pedal buy it...now.
Ease of Use — 7
The Boss GT-10 is simple to use when you get and set it up and flick through the many many patches...but when you see all the diffrent things thing you can do(like assign effects to pedals)it getsvery complicated...if your someonewho doesnt mind sitting down and reading a manual for an hour ar two,go out and buy this prdal...if not just be a bit carefull to not get sucked in to the Boss website telling us how easy the GT-10 is to use...because saving up all your money and buyingsomething thats super complicated and hard (at times)to use..but if your happy just to play with what factory patches they give you its an ok pedal..
