Product Description

The Boss GM-800 elevates guitar synthesis into a new age of natural playability and boundless creative range. Driven by the newly-developed Serial GK interface, the advanced ZEN-Core sound engine unlocks any sound imaginable — from acoustic instruments to classic and modern synths — while high-performance DSP delivers tracking stability and expressive scope never before possible.

Freely combine and edit Tones with the intuitive Scene workflow, colour sounds with a huge selection of effects, and explore a universe of fresh content on Roland Cloud. Compact, streamlined, and ultra-versatile, the GM-800 infuses your guitar or bass with unlimited musical potential!
