BOSS announces the GT-1B Bass Effects Processor, a compact multi-effects unit for bassists. Equipped with BOSS’s flagship-level sound engine, the GT-1B is a powerful mobile tone companion that gives players a diverse selection of pro-level preamps and effects for stage and studio playing. The GT-1B features 90 unique effects including 13 different preamp types, all specially tuned for bass. Among these are a selection of premium effects that use BOSS’s advanced Multi-Dimensional Processing (MDP) to maintain an instrument’s natural character and response. A dedicated looper is included as well, providing a useful built-in tool for jamming and spontaneous creativity.
The GT-1B’s intuitive interface makes it simple to build sounds and fine-tune parameters — even for players who are new to multi-effects. Easy Select and Easy Edit functions streamline patch creation, allowing beginners and pros alike to achieve polished multi-effects sounds with just a few tweaks.
Though designed to be light and compact, the GT-1B still delivers the rugged durability that BOSS is famous for. In addition, a choice of AC or battery power provides flexibility for performing and practicing anywhere.
The BOSS Tone Central website gives GT-1B users access to many free patch collections created by pro bassists. 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.
