    Here's what Boss say about the GT-1B:

    Equipped with a bass-tuned version of BOSS’s most advanced sound engine, the GT-1B is absolutely packed with top-quality sound tools. A wide range of preamps are available for shaping your core tone, including updated favorites from the GT-10B and two all-new models. Premium MDP effects like limiter and distortion feature advanced BOSS tech to maintain your instrument’s character and response, enabling free-flowing musical expression. Graphic EQ, T-Wah, and other essentials are on hand too, plus impact effects such as Harmonist, Bass Synth, Defretter, and more. There’s also a complete array of mod, delay, and reverb effects, and even a looper for jamming and on-the-fly creativity.

    Mobile Powerhouse

    The GT-1B is designed for bassists on the move. It’s surprisingly lightweight and compact, making it ideal for tight stage setups and situations where you need to travel light. The rugged modern design is easy to slip in the accessory compartment of a bass bag, with no worries of hard edges causing damage to your instrument.

    AC or battery power provides flexibility for any performing situation, so you can always take your tone with you everywhere you play. Please note that the power supply for this unit is sold separately.

    Sound Creation Made Easy

    With the GT-1B’s intuitive interface, it’s simple to build sounds and fine-tune parameters, even if you’re new to multi-effects. Dedicated buttons provide instant editing access to each effect category, which you can adjust straight away via three panel knobs. The buttons also function as on/off switches, and feature status indicators that let you see which categories are enabled at a glance.

    Easy Select and Easy Edit functions streamline patch creation even more, allowing beginners and pros alike to achieve polished multi-effects sounds with just a few tweaks.

    The BOSS GT-1B is a really great piece of kit. Was obsessing with synth pedals but couldn't decide which one and then would require an expression pedal etc. The Boss SY-1 doesn't offer presets. I'm pleased with the GT-1B - many many possibilities for designing patches, built in expression pedal & 99 presets. Loads of PROS - Great value. The potential options for combining effects is vast. The build is great, knobs & buttons work easily. I dont use it as a standalone but combine with some analogue pedals, which is a good set up. Still saves plenty of space on pedalboard. CONS - you have to put some graft to get familiar with the software and best usage. There are instructions for the basic operation, using the buttons/dials on the unit but to get the full hang of the software for assigning parameters within patches, BOSS do not supply much info. There are some useful vids online though and chat on talkbass etc - Octave fx doesn't always track brilliantly. Is OK and perfectly usable, but not long sustain. - The Synth fx can be a bit OTT & erratic, if up too high. But great synth type sounds achieved with combining envelope, fuzz, octave, wave etc I haven't used any other effects processor so can't directly compare, but the unit has more than surpassed my main reasons for buying it. Lot of fun discovering new sounds, building a library of patches.

    This has a lot of great sounds out of the box, not too many of ball ones at all. Very easy to program especially with tonecentral software. Light and portable should be great for gigs if we are ever allowed to!

    It's a good product, although tricky to tweak the settings due to its complex options. There's a number of settings to play around with which will keep you tweaking for hours. Worth the money though!

    Trusted Customer21st Apr 2019

    Great, does so many things but at the price really should include an AC adapter

    the only negative is that the pedals are quite close together
