Ultra-portable and easy to use, the GT-1 delivers pro-level tones everywhere you play.

A streamlined interface enables quick and intuitive sound creation, while an assignable control switch and expression pedal provide dynamic real-time effects adjustment. And by connecting to BOSS TONE CENTRAL, you can download free pro patches, editing software, and more. Equally suited for beginners, weekend warriors, and traveling players, the GT-1 packs premium sound in a compact and rugged package.
Exceptional sound in a portable package
The GT-1 is armed with BOSS’s flagship-class GT sound engine, so it yields exceptional tone and incredible sound-shaping capabilities. There are 108 effects packed into the GT-1, ranging from classic stompboxes like the OD-1 Overdrive to modern MDP-powered effects. A plethora of COSM amp models is also at your fingertips. There’s even a 32-second phrase looper onboard! BOSS’s proprietary Adaptive Focus method improves the signal-to-noise ratio of the 24-bit converters. And everything is jammed into a 2-pound floor unit that fits easily in your gig bag’s accessory compartment.
Streamlined interface makes choosing and tweaking patches a piece of cake
When we tested out the BOSS GT-1 here at Sweetwater, we found that it’s child’s play to navigate around its streamlined interface. Beginners can discover cool tones right away, and experienced guitarists can dial in advanced parameters quickly and intuitively. Select patches by genre, distortion, or effect type with the Easy Select function. Effortlessly tweak drive, modulation, and echo tones with the Easy Edit function. Clearly laid-out panel buttons provide quick on/off switches for effect groups and unlock deeper parameters for fine-tuning your sound. A backlit LCD makes monitoring your parameters a breeze.
Footswitches and external jacks pack maximum control into a small space
Achieve control over patch selection, tuner access, looper control, and more with the BOSS GT-1’s footswitches. The freely assignable control switch serves as a tap tempo, effects on/off, and more. The onboard expression pedal manipulates volume, wah, and other effects parameters. Increase the GT-1’s capabilities with up to two external footswitches. Or add a second expression pedal for more real-time control. You can also plug the GT-1 directly into your DAW via USB for recording and re-amping.
BOSS Tone Central and BOSS Tone Studio expand your capabilities
