    Very well spotted. I'm intrigued, although I really hope they've upgraded the amp modelling. They will have well and truly p****d on their own bonfire if they haven't, IMO.

    Looks pretty nice, but unless they've completely overhauled the modelling, I won't even be giving it a try-out.

    If the modelling is up to snuff, I could see it easily surpassing the Line6 HD series for me, assuming it still contains all the crazy effects and routing options the GT-series have always had. And, hey, it has a power switch! :roll

    Put me down as cautiously optimistic.

    Love the look and layout, especially the 2 screens with 8 knobs,but if they haven't updated the cosm, which I suspect they didn't, I'm not even gonna bother trying it out.

    Hard to forget that ear-fatiguing "cocked wah" when playing through the GT-10 with headphones.

    edit: I see it has a metronome. Maybe the looper is quantized (huge +). Also the dolphin street link says cosm's been "completely remodeled"... *proceeds with caution*

    Do want! Look at the back: FX loop and AMP CTL are still there! Good job Boss!!!

    Could retire my trusty GT8.

    I wasn't sure how much interest there would be for that one or I would have posted it in my NAMM thread :D

    Oh man! So glad I waited to get another modeler. I can wait to see how well received it is.

    Well, you cannot say that the designers at Boss have been very busy in the past years....

    Any word on a price point? typically the GT's ran $500. if this one is the same price and an upgrade too the 10 that would be huge for me

    Yeah but according L6 that power switch will add $100 onto the sticker price. And USB... another $100. :rolleyes:

    So by L6 logic the GT-100 will have to retail for $1000.

    Forget the GT-100 I want a new and improved Cube 60.

    I wonder if they jumped the number way up to suggest a huge jump in tonal quality. LOL

    Okay, maybe I'm getting ahead of myself here but I am stoked! If it has modeling that is better than the RP1000 then I intend on getting it.

    Very cool. I'm not really in the market for a MFX, but I will kick this one around like I do the others. Interesting there are no XLR outs. This seems to support the notion that Boss continues to view the GT series as a live device (where the VG is for recording), which is a somewhat different stance from L6 which views the HD/Pod as both.

    I'll be especially curious to hear how it sounds.

    Peace,
