Sound — 10
EASY to use, but you have to get your hands dirty, and put the manual down. The effects are pretty endless, the moron that I got this from only used delays, so he probably didn't get theuse out of it, that he could've. Shoulda Woulda Coulda. Too late now, I'm all over this thing like a pitbull on a poodle. EASY TO USE!
Overall Impression — 10
Killer, awesome, unreal, I would definitely get another one. I'm endorsed with ESP, Dunlop, Mesa Boogie. I play Peaveys amps, because they simply sound better. Got a TripleXXX, and Classic 50 4x10, I use the GT-6 with the Classic 50. Great, freaking great!
Reliability & Durability — 9
Built like a tank, the footswitches seem very durable. I will take this one the road for damn certain. I play with a major band that you have heard of, and played SNL, Conan O Brien, Fuel and Spike TV and would feel comfortable bringing this to all those gigs, ozzfest and Warped tour without thinking twice.
Ease of Use — 10
This unit is great. I play in a progressive rock band, and I needed something very versatile. I had a pedalboard, but many songs require adjusting my delay pedal, the reverb holy grail, and chorus between songs, which meant stooping down and moving knobs. The GT-6 has presets, and can name presets, and tweek to my liking. I got the GT-6 yesterday, no manual. Its a simple pedal to use, I already have 8 presets dialed in and named them too. I was suprised how easy it was to use. Find your sound and push write twice. Watch the screen when you push FX1 or FX2, push it again to change it to on or off. I use this with a tweed Peavey Classic 50 and this combo with the GT6 sounds mean, and the Acoustic sounds are VERY nice. The cabinet settings: a knob that goes from 1x10, 1x12, 2x12, 4x12, 8x12 gets deeper the bigger you go. 1x10 very trebly, 8x12 very deep. The synth sound is great, a friend played some Chuck Mangione with this setting, freaking great. Many many effects, just tinker with it and you'll find out how easy it is to master. I traded a pedalboard for this and am extremely happy. I bought a twin tube Zoom 9.2tt and returned it after 3 days. That thing sucks, the sounds are UN-useable, the thing is hard to adjust, I was pissed the whole time trying to find a sound I liked. Stick with the Boss GT-6. No manual. Easy to edit. Probably will never hook it up to my computer. The sounds are great, but I would anyone with this to run it through a tube amp, and run it through the clean channel. The tubes give it warmth, and the sounds are believeable, not processed sounding. Any questions?
