  • Modern design with no hard edges enables safe transport in a guitar bag
  • Easy Select and Easy Edit functions for quickly choosing and tweaking patches

Ultra-portable and easy to use, the GT-1 delivers pro-level tones everywhere you play. A streamlined interface enables quick and intuitive sound creation, while an assignable control switch and expression pedal provide dynamic real-time effects adjustment. And by connecting to Boss Tone Central, you can download free pro patches, editing software, and more. Equally suited for beginners, weekend warriors, and traveling players, the GT-1 packs premium sound in a compact and rugged package.

Exceptional Sound
Thanks to its flagship-class GT sound engine, the GT-1 provides tone quality and sound-shaping ability that far exceeds typical compact multi-effects. A history of Boss processing is at your fingers, from classics such as the OD-1 Overdrive to modern effects powered by innovative MDP technology. There’s a huge selection of COSM amp tones on tap too, including vintage legends and Boss original amps optimized for ideal tone and response. Specialized effects like Acoustic Simulator, Guitar Simulator, and others provide numerous tonal options, and there’s even a looper to enhance your practice sessions and stage performances.

Portable Tone Partner
The GT-1 was designed for musicians on the move. It’s surprisingly lightweight and compact, yet still delivers the rugged durability that Boss is famous for. The modern design is easy to slip in and out of a guitar bag’s accessory compartment, with no worries of hard edges causing damage to your axe. AC or battery power provides flexibility for any performing situation, and up to seven hours of battery life is available for street performing and other mobile gigs.

Easy Patch Selection and Sound Creation
With the GT-1, it’s simple to find fantastic tones for your style, and just as simple to customize them to taste. Beginners can get great sounds right away, while more experienced players will appreciate how quick and intuitive it is to adjust sounds. The Easy Select function allows you to choose patches by genre, distortion, or effect type, while Easy Edit lets you tweak drive, modulation, and echo tones to perfection with little effort. Dedicated panel buttons provide quick on/off switches for effect groups, and also unlock deep-dive parameters for microscopic fine-tuning.

Boss Tone Central and Boss Tone Studio
At Boss Tone Central, you’ll find tons of free patch collections for playing all types of music with the GT-1. Created by pro guitarists, these patches are dialed-in and ready to use, and make great starting points for advanced players who like to create their own custom sounds. The free Boss Tone Studio software provides a full-featured editor/librarian for the GT-1, as well as integrated access to all the patch collections at BOSS Tone Central.

Maximum Control in a Small Space
The GT-1’s three footswitches are smartly designed to provide patch selection, tuner access, looper control, and more in a minimal footprint. The dedicated CTL1 switch is freely assignable to functions like tap tempo, effects on/off, and numerous others, while the expression pedal and toe switch are assignable to volume, wah, and various effects parameters. If you crave more control, there’s even a jack for connecting up to two external footswitches or an expression pedal. And in addition to providing access to BOSS Tone Central and Boss Tone Studio, the GT-1’s USB jack lets you record and re-amp tones with your favorite DAW.

Impressed!

What is your opinion of this product?
Picked this up as a backup for a L6 Helix and I'm impressed with the sounds and ease of use. Amp models are surprisingly good and effects are typical Boss quality. At 2 bills this unit is a great deal! Small and convenient. Perfect!

Great features and great sound
What is your opinion of this product?
The product is great. Even though some part made of plastic, still feels very durable. Only reason why I give it four out of five stars is because it really is a little complicated learning how to use it effectively in the live or recording session. The effects are really first-rate

Great workhorse in a smaller package!
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a simple and easy to use product. It’s easy enough for a beginner to use and for an experienced musician to tweak. Great sounds from a small unit.

Good start for a beginner?
What is your opinion of this product?
I haven't used it much. It's for my fiance to have a few more sonic options. She can't really mess it up too much, and it does the job. My only issue is setting up sounds can be a bit challenging at times, but the fact that you can plug it in to your computer to edit everything makes up for that. The switches are passable, kind of mushy though. the expression pedal feels VERY unnatural as well. The underside is plastic, but it seems sturdy. for $200, you can't really ask for much more.

Practical guitar multieffects
What is your opinion of this product?
I’m happy that I found a multieffect with many options and practical mixing with small size, you have to check some videos to learn how to use but it’s easy, just take a few minutes I recommend it, I’m not sure for big gigs but it is a pretty good pedal.

Love it more than my Katana 100 with GAFC
What is your opinion of this product?
Incredible value and sound through front of house. It also works well in front of all my tube amplifiers (old bassman, old bandmaster, pro reverb, old Supro etc etc). Makes my Pro Jr amps come alive. Remember to program it at gig levels otherwise you may have issues. More tweakable and useable than my Katana amp. Buy it.

Pretty Impressive for the Price!
What is your opinion of this product?
This Multi-Effects unit is really cool. I have been playing guitar for more than 3 decades. As the years go by pedals have gotten more and more complicated to create patches and use. If you are looking for super intuitive user interfaces, this is not your pedal. The Boss ME80 is more likely what you want. If you want a whole lot of useable presets in a light weight pedal, this is it. The GT1 is very good at what it does. It's versatile and the loop feature is fantastic! For $199, go for it.
