This has made my rig a lot easier to navigate. If you like effects, this will be a better option than buying a thousand stomp boxes.

Absolutely love it
What is your opinion of this product?
The one guy saying the housing is cheap, the ends are plastic, the expression cheap, etc just not true. This thing is absolutely road Worthy and if u need a cold rolled steel slab, that's not the products fault. That's the handlers fault. This is a perfectly compact, yet fuy functional board. The footswitches are ok, but not as the gentleman below makes it out to be. They are spaced enough for me, definitely durable enough for me and this thing could survive the road just fine. The ends are very hard polymer and unless ur playing frisbee with it, u won't be complaining either. You have to cut weight and size , if you want portable and compact. And ur buying it for the tone most importantly, yea? It beats the helix Imo. You get a lot of awesome boss algorithms from all the 500 series and much more. Yes plenty of awesome gain/higain/classic tones right out of the box. Patvges are great, most of em useable as is. It's competitors are fractal ax8 & line 6 helix light. This blows both of em away. So if it's not worth it, show me a unit better for the same price. This horse is def leading that race. Sounds is phenomenal, gotta love the floating 32 bit floating point chip. AD/DA is excellent. Never really cared for boss' menu/navigation system but a minimal learning curve. u can connect your phone for backing tracks or wireless headphones. Very handy. I can go and on and on about why this is absolutely worth a thousand dollars. If u were reading these reviews and sitting on the me, thank me later. That others guys review is absurd, see for urself. U will not be disappointed with ur new gt1000. If u need fancy touch screen or color LCD over tone...then get something else. You want an awesome compact board with tone, processing power, portability are of the highest priority. This is ur huckleberry!Love it, no regrets and it well exceeded my expectations.

Not What I Expected From Boss
What is your opinion of this product?
I want to say first that the GT-1000 sounds great! It has a ton of hoarse power. However... The unit is disappointing overall. The build quality is not up to the normal standards one expects from Boss. The housing is not solid the end caps on the sides of the unit are plastic and the switches feel cheap and are way too close together. Not at all the same as the upgraded switches on the 500 series units or the ES-8. The expression pedal also feels cheap. The GT-1000 is not road worthy. The GT-100 was built extremely well but the GT-1000 is not even close to the same build quality and it is double the price! The GT-1000 is not worth the 1,000.00 street price. I think this was a major mistake for Boss. I own several Boss products GT-100, DD-500, RV-500 & an ES-8. Again as a person that really loves Boss products I am extremely disappointed.
