Boss: GT-6 Guitar Effects Processor

Price paid: $ 412

Purchased from: Music Retailer Outside the U.S.

Sound — 10
The sounds like I said before are GREAT, you can make any sound you want, from a mellow distortion to a trash metal attack!!! The preamps are great, the Jc120 sounds good and the Twin Clean sounds great with some chorus or a 2x2 chorus you'll never miss on effects, the newest effects are the defretter and the uni-v, are pretty cool. It has many effects divided in two blocks the Fx-1 and Fx-2, also the chorus, reverb and delay has it own button and they are sepparated from the blocks. The Chain effect can be setup what ever you want to, and each patch has its own chain effect.

Overall Impression — 10
Like everything in life is not perfect, it has its flaws and one of them is the Compressor/Limiter is inside the Fx-1 block and it cant be use when using another fx-1 effect, let's say in a patch you are using the tremolo then you cant use the compressor at the same time. That is the only complain I have with the unit. Besides that the unit is perfect!

When you unpack the GT-6 it surprises you, the presets are awesome and the sound is speechless, when you star to make your own patches you have to be carefull, all the effects has it own way to set it up. When you grab a preset patch and start to editing there are many ways to start from the preamp to the reverb, when you get the hang of it, the patches will sound more professional, but be patience!!!
