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.

Could be amazing if not for little things!
What is your opinion of this product?
The great: Effects and customization, amp modeling, very accurate tuner and fits in my backpack. Looks fantastic and LCD display is nice.Didnt flatten or mess with any pre existing EQ settings before pedal. The tone is amazing. I want so bad to give it 5 stars but there are issues. The Good: Ability to loop multiple times. The sound cuts thru mix very well and very easy to control. The bad: Pedal pad sensitivity. When trying to change effects it sometimes is glitchy and has a mind of its on and will scroll. Almost aliken to a keyboard without weighted keys. If you don't apply perfect pressure you may not get the desired affect and one 5 or 6 spaces down the chain.During our set today the pedal started scrolling when barely touched and almost was disastrous. Fortunately I was using user presets and was able to get back quickly to right effect. The Ugly Looper skips time. You can time everything perfectly but no matter how perfect you are the looker will not stay in time for long term looking. It puts a pause in between. The spacing between foot pads: You have to be really careful selecting both pedals at once to activate tuner and looper. No memory expansion to save loops. Once you unplug, loop is lost. I have over 20 yrs experience and have toured and recorded with country,southern gospel, contemporary and praise and worship artist. This is one of the best purchases I have made for home studio or small church setting. However, due to the pedal scrolling issue I would not take on road due to the possible disaster it would cause by the unweighted pedal pad issue.I love the concept, they just have some work to do....
