Looks Classy. Rocks Hard.

From its striking gold chassis to its lavish array of knobs and pedals, BOSS has outdone itself again with the new GT-6 Guitar Effects Processor. And that's just what's on the outside, because under the hood is the most advanced COSM modeling engine ever created—complete with 30 amp models, plus all-new COSM Distortion/Overdrive Pedal Modeling and Wah Modeling. Add to this all-new effects like "Uni-V" and "De-Fretter," plus superb sound quality, and you've got the most powerful floor-based multiple effects processor in history.

8 types of output choices like JC-120, Combo Amp, Amp Stack and more

Rather than adding a few bells and whistles, BOSS completely refined the GT-6's COSM engine to include 30 of the finest amp and speaker cabinet models ever—from vintage classics to modern screamers. Then BOSS took the GT-6 even further by offering killer new Overdrive/Distortion Modeling (15 types of classic distortion and overdrive pedals) and COSM Wah Modeling (5 types of vintage and modern wah pedals). And with the GT-6's Customize function, you can build your own amp and speaker models, along with distortion units and wah pedals.

Intuitive Operation.

Even with all its great presets, chances are you'll be anxious to create your own signature tones. The GT-6 offers 15 knobs set up to control the Amp/Speaker models, Overdrive/Distortion, and other primary effects. An EZ Tone feature even helps you create new sounds from scratch.

24-bit Sound, New Effects, Flexible Outputs and More.

Why did BOSS build the GT-6 with 24-bit converters? Because we wanted its effects to sound stellar. And speaking of effects, in addition to chorus, delay, reverb, phasing, flanging, tremolo, pitch shifting, Slicer, Acoustic Simulator and more, the GT-6 is the first BOSS unit to offer new “Uni-V” and “De-Fretter” effects, which provide phase shifting/ vibrato effects and simulate the sound of a “fretless” guitar, respectively. And with coaxial digital outputs and eight output select options including combos, amp stacks and effects loops, you won’t find a more flexible pedalboard for the studio or stage.
