"Yeah, that thing is awesome. It’s great — like having a million BOSS pedals in one little unit. At one point I had this other [non-BOSS] USB guitar unit, but I wasn’t too crazy about it. But I love this BOSS thing. It’s incredible. I loaded all the software into my computer, and brought it into my hotel room every day on tour. I love the way you can tweak everything onscreen, and save everything. And it sounds really good. There’s one thing in there that I never even knew existed, it’s a little arpeggiator [Auto Riff] where you play one note and all of a sudden there’s a series of notes right after. It’s wild. You can change the speed, you can program in the notes, basically you can wail by playing just a few notes. Really, really, cool."more
"I’m a huge fan of Roland, I’ve always used Roland and BOSS products through the years. As a matter of fact, I’m using the BOSS GS-10 now. It’s incredible because it does so much. We as musicians today are always using computers, and everything needs to go through them. If we want to get an idea down, we have to turn everything on, then by the time you’re ready to lay it down you may have missed the chance to capture the creative idea you were working on. This is one of the things I like about the GS-10, besides being able to interface with the computer — you just turn it on and it’s ready to go. It’s right there. You can take GS-10 to your hotel room. You can take it backstage. The GS-10 has speakers built in, and it’s got the amp and speaker modeling internally along with a tuner built in. Many of the interfaces on the market only have MIDI or audio. The GS-10 has not only MIDI , it’s an audio interface as well. I’m telling you the GS-10 is so flexible — I think of it as the musician’s Swiss Army Knife. The GS-10 is one of the only pieces of equipment like this that can be used as a stand-alone unit. The speakers in my laptop do not have much tone, so when I want good tone, I use the speakers in the GS-10 for playback; we don’t have to wear headphones."more
"George was an early adopter of the innovative BOSS GS-10. “I think a lot of people became disenfranchised with digital amp modeling stuff over the last year or two, but the GS-10 has really taken it to the next level. I wasn’t expecting a lot, to be honest, because quite a lot of these boxes were letdowns. But I tell you what killed me was that first program. You just turn it on and it’s unbelievable. It’s the kind of tone that I’d been looking for all my life. It’s unbelievable. I do a lot of clinics around the world, and it’s all I use. I’ll plug the GS-10 into anything they’ve got — any power amp, combo, 4x12 — anything I do is going to sound great."more
