He plays like a "boss" for sure.  I've heard him use a GT-8 with a Palmer speaker simulator and get tones to die for.  It's all in his dynamics.

That said, I'm picking one of these units up.  I love my GT-10 for what it is.  If this one has a few improved features it will be worth owning also.

I think it's cool to have this discussion, but it might be best moved to the Lounge instead of having it in three separate forums here.

It's only a simple comparison.I have Line 6 Vetta, Pod Hd 500, m13 and Boss Gt8 so I posted in three separate forums.

Perhaps I was a bit too brief

Mmm but what level of support do you want for it?  I mean, this is a support forum ...

Well, seems that boss is still with great effects and poor amps...But the guitarist of the video is great.

I was tempted to start a thread like this a month or 2 ago, but felt hesitant.

Karl,

With all the gear you've gone through I'm kinda surprised you still have a GT-10.  Is it the effects?

This is a COSM distortion example...I think is not so bad as many say...

It's my random crazy jam with a personal Boss GT8 patch that I used in direct to the mixer (pay no attention to the mistakes :-)

There's no problem discussing other kit - most people use other stuff than Line 6. I think the problem with the original thread was that it was in the HD support forum plus two other unrelated forums.

Also, he's not really set up a discussion, just posted a link. No comment on what he thinks, why he thought it was good enough to post three times etc. It's the difference between meeting your mate in a pub, asking "What do you think of the new GT-100?" and entering into discourse or walking into a pub, not talking to him - just show him a video on your iPhone and then walking out without saying a word!

I see too much bigotry in this forum and too much seriousness, we must be flexible and playful

Yep, and the performance options.  I use it either in 4CM around a good amp or into a clean amp channel.  Think about this signal chain:

GT-10:

NR1 > Volume > Wah > Comp > OD > FX1(phaser, etc) > (amp1, amp2) > FXLoop > NR2 > Para EQ > Chorus > FX2 > Delay > Reverb  + (amp channel switching)

You can't do that in the HD500.  There simply aren't enough effects blocks available.  If I try this in the 500/Pro, I end up filling most of the blocks with "utility" effects like gates, EQ (don't get me started on EQ in the HD), volume pedal, all of which are needed, especially in 4CM, but which don't leave any room for real "effects" like chorus, tremolo, delay, reverb.

HD500/Pro:

Gate > Volume > Wah > Comp > OD > (Amp1, Amp2...) > FXLoop > Gate > EQ

See?  I ran out of blocks.  Now, that isn't saying I don't love or use my HD500/Pro.  I do, and I use them all the time.  But I've had to supplement with some outboard gear to take care of the "utility" effects that I need.  The mods and delays on the HD are simply stunning effects, and that's why I continue to use them.  Oh, and for recording of course.  The amp models are as good as anything out there, Axe-Fx included, provided you know how to tweak them out.

The GT-10 having two dedicated NR blocks, a dedicated (and awesome) parametric EQ block. and dedicated wah, volume, and fxloop just fits the bill for me as a compact floor-based setup.   So for my classic rock band, it's usually the GT-10 into a clean Mesa amp.  Plus, you have the performance options I mentioned like the assigns function which lets you control lots of things at once and even, my favorite thing, a wah you can activate just by rocking it forward.

Now, for the praise & worship band where I have a lot more stage space and setup/teardown time, I take my rack setup with the HD Pro and my MarkV.  The rack is necessary because of my guitar wireless and wireless IEM setup, so I figured if I'm bringing a rack anyway, I might as well bring the HD Pro.  In this case it's effects only, but could serve as an amp backup if the Mark V ever failed.  As I mentioned, I had to supplement the HD Pro with some outboard gear to take care of the utility effects, notably gates, EQ, and amp channel switching, but the effects for worship stuff just can't be beat.

Sorry for the novel, but I guess there wasn't a simple answer to that question.

Sorry, how is my comment bigotry? I'm all for discussing any kit that makes a sound. However I prefer my discussions to be presented by human beings who like discourse, not just throwing a link at me like a bot and expecting a discussion. How about telling us what you think of the GT, which you have so far not managed to do in this thread that you created.

Hi Mr_Arkadin,

I have a boss gt8 and I think that COSM is a valid technology system .

It been a lot difficult to programming the first few times (especially the preamp section), but now it sounds very very good...

(I discovered that it must be activated the "solo" switch, so

the preamp distortion change the character drastically... it's a kind of booster)

I hope that the new boss gt100 has a better Whammy pedal (like Line 6 pitch glide), so it would be perfect for me...

In the Jack Thammarat Video it seems good, obviously I should try it for myself !

Gabriele

Mr_Arkadin,

There is something fishy about that video.

Karl,

Thank you for the response.
