I purchased a DigiTech RP300. The quality of the product was less than adequate. When I went back to the Music Store I compared the RP400, ME50, GT6 and GS10. The GS10 was the best product for the money. The add-on pedal and computer interface make this an easy to use well integrated piece of equipment. The only downfall is the lack of user patches to be found on the internet.
I wanted a processor that's portable, easy to use for recording, and suitable for practicing with headphones. I'm a longtime GT-3 pedal board user, so I looked at Boss first. The GT-pro has some great features but it's a lot of $$$ and I didn't want a rackmount. The GS10 packs a lot of functionality into a smaller and cheaper box. Sounds and controls are the same as the 6 and 6B. If you like GT series gear, which I do, you'll like the GS10. Physical quality is superb: solid controls, steel enclosure, no plastic jacks, etc. The audio inputs are great for practicing with a CD or metronome in headphones. The guitar input and 1/4" headphone jacks are on the front edge of the unit, which is a nice touch.I marked down sightly on features due to the unbalanced RCA analog outputs; gack. Should be balanced TRS, IMHO. Also, it has just one controller input, which can be used for foot switches OR an expression pedal; I wish it had two inputs, like my GT-3. (You can use a midi controller with it, but those are expensive and harder to set up.) The little speakers are worthless, but I had low expectations for them so I wasn't disappointed.Bottom line: This is a great unit that does everything I wanted. In a pinch, it could also be a backup for my GT-3. I'm glad I bought it.
I think the tones in this unit are the best I've heard (I previously have owned a Johnson J Station and a Pod XT, both of which are very good/excellent in their own rights.Very tweakable, and the software is flawless.I think the speakers sound great - you're obviously not going to get a lot of bass sound out of them, but for guitar they are gorgeous - and filled a small room.Although I primarily use reverb (and sometimes OD/Distortion for fun) everything else sounded better than anything I've ever played, including the POD XT - with which I am also very impressed, having had one for a year.
George Lynch used the GS-10 at the Albany guitar clinic on 4/20/04. After listening to george go through some of the patches on the this unit i was blown away by it's warmth. It just sounded incredible! However it was a Peavey clinic not a Boss Clinic. But I enjoyed it just the same. Congrats to Boss for another wonderful product.
The Boss GS-10 Sounds Great! There are many unitsout there such as : Line 6,V-Amp,Vox,etc. Ive heard them all! This Unit is by Far the Most Complete Package. All the Amps,Speakers,Mic placement,Inputs,Outputs,Software included makes this unit Rule all of the other competitors.
The best Boss/Roland unit to date!
The things I did not like about this unit is the way it sounds harmonics, and the setup for pre-amp sounds. I can't say that I'm that thoroughly experienced with the unit, but the tech in the store was running me through the presets and it seemed as if different distortion pedals in combination with 4-5 basic amp sounds were the basis for this pre-amp's sound. The speakers sound like crap, but I suppose it's nice to have them when you're creating presets for recording direct.About the harmonics, I think they are, in general, kind of ugly. The way the combination of flesh and pick comes across when playing typical metal riffs and the way legato lines are curiously percussive turned me off of this unit. Obviously the USB cable interface and many of the features will make this unit very valuable and efficient in the studio, but I still like the Vox, Sans Amp, Rocktron, yamaha, and Line 6 units better in terms of tone. Don't take my word for it, check one out.
Now I can have all my guitar effects in one compact place. Last night I took the GS 10, a guitar a cord, and a pick and using the built in speakers had a jam session in my living room. I needed no amplifier nor did I spend time setting up my pedals with their cords - I just played to my hearts content. I even experimented with a few new settings from the comfort of my couch.
