Bundle of joy..

Chris2807, 03.02.2017
I have owned the Axe FX II, Kemper Rack, and now use the Line 6 Helix, which suits me best..
The Boss GT-001 is a long way from being in the same price bracket, but don't let that put you off..
Of course, the previously mentioned models, do have an overall superior sound quality, notably in the high frequencies, where they sound more detailed, natural, and more ' hi-fi ', but the GT-001 stands head & shoulders over everything in terms of ease of use and value for money..
There's a vast choice of quality effects, preamps, cabs, mics, etc, and the display is so easy to understand. At a glance, and a twist of a knob, you can see which effects you have chosen, which are active, and the order they're in.. and that's a lot of fun, because you can let your imagination go wild with this thing.. You have a parallel routing option, where you can use 2 different amp combos, left & right for example, and you can chain the effects however you like, by moving their positions within the chain, and all the editing is so easy to do, you hardly have to move your hand, as all the buttons and knobs are in easy reach.. I don't bother with the PC editor.. No need.
I've read a couple of fairly negative reviews, notably from Tony McKenzie, who's online in-depth and informative reviews I greatly appreciate, and enjoy, but I have to disagree with Tony on this one.. I also own the GT-100, so I can compare the two easily.. I feel he did not
give the GT-001 enough attention. You really need to do a bit of deep tweaking to get the very best sounds out of it.. Forget the factory presets, they're just a starting point, and another important aspect is that it really sweetens up after a couple of months of normal use..
If you're a young musician, short of cash, or just looking for a preamp / effects unit, I can recommend the Boss GT-001 without hesitation, particularly for home studio use.. It's a little box of magic, and you can get some wonderful sounds out of it..
It also has a mic input with phantom power, ( you need to choose that OR the guitar input, you can't have both..) it doubles as a sound card, comes with a downloadable PC editor, has connectors for external pedals or switches, and you hardly need to read the manual, it's so easy to use, solidly built, and above all, great FUN, all at an incredibly cheap price..
Even though I've got some more top end stuff, I still find myself reaching for the Boss as 1st choice, when songwriting.. It's ready to go in seconds and it takes no time to find approximately the sound you're after, the sounds are musically convincing, and the parameters are numerous with great depth. Download the manual for more details, & watch Alex Hutchins demo it on YouTube..
Complaints.? I haven't really got any.. What more could you want at this price..? Brilliant.!

Boss GT-001 Review from tonymckenzie.com on YouTube

tonymckenzie.com, 31.05.2014
I bought this unit specifically for a review video and written review on my website. I really wanted this unit to be GREAT... but in reality I felt that it is below what I normally get from Roland Boss by way of features and benefits. It IS a desktop unit and maybe I expected more because of other Boss products.
I tried hard to believe in the GT-001 but eventually I decided that for many guys a GT-100 (for the difference in price) is better made throughout AND you get control pedals.
