New Ultra-Responsive Amp Models, Updated Effects, Dual Displays, and More

Los Angeles, CA, January 19, 2012 — BOSS is proud to introduce the GT-100  Amp Effects Processor,  the latest addition to the popular GT-series lineup of floor-based  multi-effects units for guitarists. Driven by a powerful new BOSS DSP  engine, the GT-100 is the most advanced GT ever, loaded with newly  developed, ultra-responsive COSM® amps, updated effects with enhanced  real-time control options, dual displays for easy sound programming, and  more.

BOSS  has completely remodeled all of the COSM amps in the GT-100, distilling  decades of sound research to create the best-sounding guitar  processor the company has produced to date. Reaching far beyond  conventional vintage amp modeling, the GT-100 includes a host of all-new  amps that deliver amazingly transparent clean tones to ultra-high gain  modern sounds and everything in between.

At  the core of the GT-100 is BOSS’ new proprietary DSP chip, a  blazing-fast processor that provides unparalleled muscle for COSM amps  and  effects. Thanks to this powerful new chip, the GT-100’s COSM amps sound  better than ever before, with a dynamic touch and response that truly  captures the feel and expressiveness of the world’s finest tube-based  amplifiers.

The  GT-100 is also a powerful multi-effects processor packed with a huge  array of effects, including overdrives, distortions, delays, pitch  shifters, modulation, reverb, and many more. The newly developed ACCEL  pedal lets players creative explosive effects in live performance by  adjusting multiple effects parameters in real time with one simple foot  press. 

The  GT-100’s user interface has been completely redesigned as well,  offering easy, intuitive operation that greatly improves on previous  designs. Dual displays make navigation simple while programming tones,  with intuitive parameter adjustment via easy-to-grab knobs. The GT-100  also includes the acclaimed EZ TONE, which gives everyone from beginners  to pros the ability to dial up world-class  tones with just a few tweaks. AMP CUSTOMIZE and OD/DS CUSTOMIZE functions, which enable to create original amps and OD/DS, are newly added to EZ TONE.

Housed in a road-tested, all-metal GT chassis with a sleek  black finish, the GT-100 is ready for action on stage and in the  studio. Eight onboard foot switches provide control over patch  selection, as well as immediate access to the built-in Phrase Looper and  ACCEL functions. The integrated heavy-duty expression pedal  offers foot control over volume, wah, pitch effects, and more.  Additionally, the new quick-access Manual mode instantly transforms the  GT-100 from a patch-based multi-effects unit to a pedalboard full of  legendary stomps with individual on/off control.

The GT-100 will be available in February 2012. For more information, visit www.RolandConnect.com.
