Boss GT-100

I don't normally start threads, but I was surprised nobody'd started one on this yet.

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.

A little more info here: http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/articl.../?locale=ga_IE

"It is loaded with newly developed, ultra responsive COSM amps, updated effects with enhanced real-time control options. Sporting dual displays for easy sound programing and much more. Boss has completely remodelled all of its COSM amps taking decades of research to create the best sounding guitar processor to date. "

Seems like they MIGHT have done improvements on their COSM amps.... according to this site:

http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/articl.../?locale=ga_IE

Edit: Wow... seems like TFC posted the link just a few seconds before me :-)

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!

Put me down as cautiously optimistic.

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

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.

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*

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

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

Well they do make the best foot switches, IMO, so I'm glad they didn't change those. Solid and consistent switching, not what I encounter with my HD500's foot switches. But yeah, the rest of the design could use some work.
