GT-10B: Bass Effects Processor

Top-of-the-Line Bass Station

Features

Bass players can enjoy the same core processing muscle and flexibility of the GT-10 in a specially made sibling: the GT-10B, optimized for the low-frequency domain. The massive power of BOSS’ latest DSP engine and COSM® sound-modeling know-how are integrated to provide the most creative and essential features for bass. With Parallel Chain, Phrase Loop and EZ Tone onboard, the GT-10B takes its place as the most advanced-yet-friendly bass station on the market.

  • Optimized for bass, with essential effects such as OD/DS and Comp/Limiter, the GT-10B provides top-quality sounds without sacrificing richness and bottom of the bass tone
  • EZ Tone enables intuitive tone creation by using an interactive user interface based on graphic icons
  • Parallel Chain offers two separate effects paths that can be blended, switched by playing dynamics, or with the onboard pedals
  • Phrase Loop allows instant sound-on-sound loop creation
  • USB capability offers audio- and MIDI-streaming in real time
  • GT-10B comes equipped with XLR outputs as well as 1/4-inch jacks

More Info

Bass Tone Factory
Powered by BOSS’ latest custom-made sound processor, the GT-10B provides dozens of stunning effects algorithms and COSM® amp models to explore, combine, and customize, but with careful attention given to the needs of bass players. Indispensable effects for bass, including pro-grade Comp/Limiter, EQ and OD/DS, compliment the full range of effects offerings onboard, from essential to esoteric.

EZ Tone Wizard
Tone creation is more than easy with the GT-10B. The amazing, intuitive EZ Tone wizard lets bass players unlock their full creative potential with its unique interactive approach to programming.

Parallel Chain
Parallel Chain is an ideal feature for bass performance. Complex effects sound can be blended with powerful, pure tones. Switching or blending these two paths according to your playing intensity offers more dynamic and impressive bass performances than ever.
