Often offering aspiring professional musicians a wide range of options for their live performances and studio sessions, BOSS have now taken that extra step with the innovative GT-1000, an all-new, flagship multi effects unit that sets a new standard for sound production.

Industry-Leading Tone with Breakthrough Boss Technology

As a firm favourite for guitarists of all levels, the BOSS GT series of multi effects have been a mainstay in the music industry since the early 90's.

This premium-grade tone machine showcases the brand new A.I.R.D (Augmented Impulse Response Dynamics) Technology with some style, and features an ultra-fast DSP engine, 32-bit AD/DA, 32-bit Processing power and a pristing 96 kHz sampling rate, all of which is unmatched by anything else on the market.

With the Version 2 firmware, BOSS continues the development of its flagship guitar multi-effects platform and its ongoing commitment to Boss GT-1000 users around the world.

The Tube Logic Approach

Thanks to the all-new A.I.R.D technology and BOSS's acclaimed Tube Logic approach, the GT-1000 offers a seriously impressive amount of musical response and flexibility for a digital guitar processor, allowing your signal to "live and breathe" just like with a real tube amp, and providing authentic tonal dynamics that were previously aunattainable in a digital unit.

Building on a Legacy

With the Boss GT-1000, boss have taken all that they've learned over the years and incorporated all of the acclaimed sounds from the company's stompbox effects history, in addition to harnessing tones from the "500" series of Delay, Modulation and Reverb pedals, as well as the ground-breaking MDP technology to offer the kind of dynamic response not available with any other unit.

Bluetooth Connectivity

As the first of its kind, the Boss GT-1000 allows for Bluetooth editing, in addition to the fully-featured PC/Mac editor that can be used via USB. With BOSS's onboard looper and the Bluetooth connectivity, you can now perform a virtual soundcheck: simply record your tones into the unit, then step away and tweak it from where your audience would be, allowing you to produce the perfect tones for each venue!

Save and Store Your Settings

A brand new mode - aptly titled Stompbox - allows you to save your settings from individual effects or amp bloxks, and later recall them into any other preset, meaning you'll never have to remember just what settings you used previously.
