BOSS Announces the GX-100 Guitar Effects Processor​

A processor for guitar and bass with intuitive color touch display and advanced BOSS tone technologies.


Fusing advanced BOSS tone technologies into a modern hardware design, the GX-100 delivers premium sound and ultra-intuitive operation with a vivid color touch display. It features 23 AIRD amplifiers and over 150 effects derived from the flagship GT-1000, up to 15 simultaneous effect blocks, and deep real-time command via onboard footswitches, an expression pedal, and external control support.

The GX-100 features eight custom footswitches and an expression pedal with toe switch that can be assigned to control nearly any parameter. Switching into Manual mode provides direct stompbox-like control, and players can go even further with external control via footswitches, an expression pedal, or MIDI. There’s also a jack to remotely switch amplifier channels with memory selection or an assigned footswitch.

In addition to stage use, the GX-100 works as a USB audio interface for recording and performing with a computer. There’s also a headphones jack for quiet practice, plus an onboard looper for jamming, developing sounds and ideas, and performing. Using BOSS Tone Studio for macOS and Windows, players can tweak every GX-100 parameter, save sounds, and organize Live Sets for different gigs from a computer. And with the optional Bluetooth® Audio MIDI Dual Adaptor, it’s possible to wirelessly connect with a mobile device to adjust settings on-the-gig from the BOSS Tone Studio app and stream backing music through the GX-100.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for blues music, but the blues scale can yield beguiling musical results that bear little resemblance to the traditional blues—particularly if one looks at (and listens to) the scale from a different point of view.
