Boss GT6B Bass Guitar Multi Effects Pedal
The Boss GT-6B Bass Effects Processor is the first high-end professional bass multi-effects floor-based processor. Digital outputs as well as 1/4 inch and XLR outs, plus true analog bypass and 24-bit converters are just the first indications of this GT's pro features. Plugging into the GT-6B, offers the bassist his ultimate direct box-for starters (no better way to get into a computer digitally than this!). Then, brand new COSM® Bass Amp Modeling with new modeled compression (4 classics), plus other "must-have" effects like COSM overdrive/distortion (9), COSM wah with push on/off (3 classics) and reverb/delay/chorus/flangers allow bass players unlimited control over their sound.
The Boss GT-6B has an ultra-intuitive interface with 15 analog-style knobs, which makes operation a breeze. Picture some of the greatest bass amps and speaker cabinets in history-- Ampeg Portaflex and SVT, Bassman (100) (with 4x12 cab), Trace Elliot (AH-600SMX), Acoustic 360, and a SWR SM-400 for starters. Then mix them up with a variety of different speaker configurations.
The GT offers 32 bass effects plus many great synth sounds with quick tracking. New effects include defretting, auto-slap (an arpeggiation/auto riff mode with presets and user templates) and 6 seconds of sound-on-sound for building loops (great with synth sounds). Built-in expression and control pedals facilitate your manipulation of sounds. Outputs include MIDI for pedalboard/controller functions in other devices. By the way, the case is as rugged as... well, a GT-6.

Unrivaled Sound Quality
When designing the Boss GT-6B, the primary focus was quality—quality you can hear in every component from its 24-bit converters to its true analog bypass, allowing bass players to switch to the pure tone of their bass guitar when desired. Abalanced XLR output and coaxial digital output ensure the highest sound quality when recording, giving the GT-6B a decisive advantage over other bass multi-effects.
COSM Modeling for Bass
Thanks to proprietary COSM technology, the GT-6B can model the sound of six classic bass amps including “Concert 810,” “Session,” “T.E.” “Bass 360,” “B Man,” and “Flip Top.” But amps are only half the story, so the GT-6B also includes several speaker cabinet models like 8 x 10, 4 x 10, 2 x 15 and others. Now you can get great tone direct!
Killer Effects with COSM
The GT-6B features BOSS’ finest “bread-and-butter” effects - including chorus, reverb, delay, flanger and more - all tuned for bass guitar. And with COSM Overdrive/Distortion Modeling and Wah Modeling, bass players can get some of their favorite tones and effects without using amps or noisy stompboxes. The GT-6B also features new COSM Compression, which offers models of several well-known compressors. With all of these amazing COSM effects, bassists can literally just plug in and play.
Auto Slap, Looping and More
New performance effects include an Auto Slap feature, which creates automatic slap patterns using Preset or User templates, plus sound-on-sound looping for creating loops “on the fly”—even fat synth bass sounds with killer tracking. There’s nothing else like it!
