Flagship Tone Tools for Bass
Equipped with a bass-tuned version of BOSS’s most advanced sound engine, the GT-1B is absolutely packed with top-quality sound tools. A wide range of preamps are available for shaping your core tone, including updated favorites from the GT-10B and two all-new models. Premium MDP effects like limiter and distortion feature advanced BOSS tech to maintain your instrument’s character and response, enabling free-flowing musical expression. Graphic EQ, T-Wah, and other essentials are on hand too, plus impact effects such as Harmonist, Bass Synth, Defretter, and more. There’s also a complete array of mod, delay, and reverb effects, and even a looper for jamming and on-the-fly creativity.

Mobile Powerhouse
The GT-1B is designed for bassists on the move. It’s surprisingly lightweight and compact, making it ideal for tight stage setups and situations where you need to travel light. The rugged modern design is easy to slip in the accessory compartment of a bass bag, with no worries of hard edges causing damage to your instrument. AC or battery power provides flexibility for any performing situation, so you can always take your tone with you everywhere you play.

Sound Creation Made Easy
With the GT-1B’s intuitive interface, it’s simple to build sounds and fine-tune parameters, even if you’re new to multi-effects. Dedicated buttons provide instant editing access to each effect category, which you can adjust straight away via three panel knobs. The buttons also function as on/off switches, and feature status indicators that let you see which categories are enabled at a glance. Easy Select and Easy Edit functions streamline patch creation even more, allowing beginners and pros alike to achieve polished multi-effects sounds with just a few tweaks.

BOSS Tone Central and BOSS Tone Studio
At BOSS Tone Central, you’ll find a wide selection of free patch collections for the GT-1B. Programmed by top bassists, 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-1B, as well as integrated access to all the patch collections at BOSS Tone Central.

Pro Control in a Compact Space
The GT-1B’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, pitch shift, and various effects parameters. If you crave even more control, there’s 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-1B’s USB jack lets you record tones directly to your favorite DAW.

Awesome for the price

What is your opinion of this product?
Pros: Great effects, affordable Cons: No copy feature, AC adapter not included, short battery life, too few pedals. But I recommend this unit anyway. This concept was new to me. I'm used to old school MFX, such as the Korg A4 I played in the 90s. I wish Boss still made the bigger GT-10B. I prefer to use pedals for hosting static patches, not for toggling effects on and off. Took me a while to get the hang of editing, but Boss's Quick Start videos on YouTube proved to be quite helpful. I actually like a lot of the stock patches. I'm a fretless player, so I dig the "Mild Tube" patch. A copy feature would've been nice, as I wanted to have 3 or 4 versions of it (had to write settings down and edit unused patches). The Octave tracking belched on just about every patch except on "Hip-hop Dub". That one gives me the Tony Levin sound. Fun fact: 2 stock patches allow you to recreate both of Jack's car trips to the Overlook Hotel. The BossTone Studio provides a handy bird's eye view for editing.

"Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Being my first time using a effects pedal in 50yrs of playing, I am learning a lot about the usage of effects in my style of playing and find learning all the effects on this pedal worth it

Great Product
What is your opinion of this product?
Very easy to use. I pretty much found the sounds I was looking for with the factory presets, but I had no problems with making my own presets.This processor is well worth the money and so far my purchases with AMS have gone without any problems.I'm hooked!

Not as good as expected
What is your opinion of this product?
More than a little disappointed in th GT1-B. The operation is not very "intuitive" as advertised. The preset patches are not listed in the owners manual. That requires downloading a separate file from Boss. The looper function is on the same patch as the delay, which makes it useless when using any other delay effect. To operate the tuner requires depressing two switches simultaneously, not what I consider convenient design. On the plus side, the tones available are decent and the cost is less than what one would spend for a separate tuner, octive pedal and delay. Simply for that reason is why I would even consider purchasing this again.
