"Rob Marcello visited Sweetwater this week to give us a personal demo of the new BOSS GT-100! Our Winter NAMM 2012 demo video got a ton of views, so we're sure this will help many more get an idea of what's possible with the GT-100. Enjoy the demo, then learn more about the BOSS GT-100 right here: (link)"
I did break down and call Roland tech support 2 weeks ago to ask them some questions right after NAMM had finished up. The guy intimated that there was some final tweaking to be done, i.e, that the units at NAMM were prototypes.perhaps Roland/Boss has a gag order in place as the final specs aren't completely finished? Who knows.
That's my guess. The only demos happening are being controlled and geared to showcase a few specific things, mostly at the high gain side of things. Some folks said they got to play with one for a bit at NAMM so we do have a handful of firsthand accounts but they've all said very different things.I'm looking forward to maybe buying one of these, but I admit that it would have been better to just have someone in-house demo the unit rather than a Boss spokesperson.
Maybe they can't? Maybe along with a gag order all demos have to have one of Roland's people doing the playing?
That's the type of field demo that come with time once owners get their hands on the box. By the same reasoning that million note a minute demos have a limited audience and don't show the full feature set of the product, honestly strumming a couple chords on a Fender amp model also doesn't show the full feature set of the product and indeed has an equally limited audience. Don't get me wrong, that's important to me, but if that's a player's only concern, then there are already products on the market to scratch that itch...some at a significantly lower cost. The vast majority of complaints on the GT-10 surrounded the cocked wah on a couple high gain models. IMHO, they've gone to lengths to show that has been remedied. I would be more interested in reading the manual at this point rather than hearing any more demos.Just set it to the Deluxe Model with a strat or Tele bridge pickup, play soft, then dig hard. Perhaps a touch of verb as the effect. That would do it.
Yep. Preordered. FWIW, I didn't think the GT-10 was a horrible device so likely for me there will be a bunch to like here as well. But when things bug me about a unit, I don't pull punches.So Will you are going to "guinea pig" it for the rest of us? I bet your "appraisal" of the unit will be FAR better than what BOSS has done..
I am looking forward to your getting ahold of one and gettin' jiggy with it!
