Gt10 or GT100?

Briano, 05.12.2013
Always a Boss user, i switched from the mighty ME50 to the GT10. As GT10 users know it took a while to figure it out. But I did. I used it in manual mode for gigs, and I switched from using Vst amps sims on the PC, to using the GT10 directly into my Emu 1616m audio Interface. My sound Improved a lot!

Naturally when Boss released the GT100 and said the amps were even better I couldn`t wait to get the money together to get one. If you are reading this, you`ve probably searched the net like me trying to find that ONE answer. IS THE GT100 BETTER? I tested both units through an interface, valve amps, solid state amps, with a Strat, a Tele and a Les paul and this is what I found....

MANUAL MODE.. Better. (1) The fx are fuller, more natural sounding. (2) Manual mode switched on by hitting two stomp pedals together, so no bending over (3) The tuner can be used in the same way (two pedals together) freeing up yet another pedal. (4) Boss added Overdrive/Distortion to the FX section, so now you can have two different OD/DS sounds in manual mode. (5) Dual screen shows which FX is assigned to which pedal. (6) Looper can be used in manual mode, and only needs 1 pedal. NOTE.. all pedals can assigned as stomp or Ctl pedals., including the ACELL pedal. (if switched off in the sub menu)

Now.. Plugging into and interface using the preamps....

Yes the Dual screen makes it easier in the programming side of things. The problem is you have to go into the menu for everything. I got used to reaching over and turning on and off delay compression etc on the GT10 (in desktop mode) so in fact its more confusing and time consuming for me. In a lot of youtube video comparisons the GT100 sounded very Muddy even Honky to me. I found this true of the unit in my experience. I did not like any of the preamps. My tele sounded Ok, the strat was just OK, but none of the Amps liked my Les Paul. Too much bass.

I am an 80`s influenced guitarist. I like my shimmering clean strat sound and hi-gain humbucker drop D downpicking riffs. I could achieve neither. Maybe I have become too used to my GT10, or I am seriously out of touch with modern "guitar sound".and maybe the hi-gain amps are more suited to active pickups. (i did not try this)

So those are my thoughts based on my experience. I know people who swear by the sensitivity of the vintage amps with old vintage guitars. If i was gigging more than recording, I would use this (for the improved manual mode) but for studio versatility I will stick to my GT10.

I hope this review helps anybody who found themselves in the same position as I was a few weeks ago. Personally I prefer my GT10, but thats just me. If you don`t try yourself you`ll never know. Finally, one more thing. Boss`s website states the GT100 operates in -10db only, (for plugging into an amp) but in the input output menu, of the GT100 the output CAN be switched to+4db (for plugging into an interface) Hope this helps!

Better then I had expected.

13.01.2016
So to start off I've been using a BOSS GT-10 for about 9 months and I can say that when I bought this I was blown away by how much better the GT-100 is in comparison. This is a very good product. All the videos on YouTube reviewing it do not do it any justice at all.(Since I'm guessing that just like me.. you probably went there and searched and listened to it and so on)

I use this in a live setting about 2-3 times a week straight through a PA and then from the DI-Box I use the split for monitoring. All I can say.. as soon as plugged it in it's amazing. The tones are clear, very rich in texture and depth, more than what you would expect from a floor unit like this. It really feels like you have that live amp behind you driving your tone.

Pros:
-Good sound quality
-Very good effects, their really real(pun intended)
-A ton of effects(Like 10+ OD/DS; 10 or so compressors etc)
-BOSS-Tone Studio(USB recording capability, high quality, ability to tweak all your setting from the comfort of your chair, on your PC without bending over)
-Good amp modeling(Some argue if their good or not, or sound like the real deal.. but honestly if tweaked right they sound pretty darn impressive. Which is what I need)

"Cons:"
Well not really a bad thing but you do need to know how to set levels and EQ's and so on. You have a lot of options and to be quite fair and you can get lost in it all. So having some knowledge on how to tweak a pedal, amp, EQ a bit will come in handy for sure!

Overall opinion:
The thing's amazing. Tones are good, it's literally built like a tank.. don't go accidentally tripping over it or you might lose a toe.

I see this as being usable both in-studio and live without any problems. But you do need to set it up right or else you might get not get the best tones out of it. Also my sound engineer loves it!

NOTE: Be prepared to spend some time to get to know the unit. I spend like one whole day when it arrived just figuring it out and making like 4 basic tones that I need. But in the end in sounded amazing. Be ready to spend some time, it's gonna be worth it.

Hope this review helps. Cheers!
