I have a Solid state amp, wanted better tone, got his pedal and the SVT simulation (called Concert likely a copyright thing) grabs every nuance of the Warwick tone very satisfying. All the effects have tons of controls (using the PC programming tool is best (only) way to tweak with so many controls available) so far very impressed... save as user presets and ready for the road...

I purchased my GT-1B from the Mississauga location in January 2018. Best effect pedal i have ever used for my bass(s). Most popular and unusual effects for bass. love it. only wish that it had a more direct way to get to the sounds you want. you need to scroll through the 99 presets to find a desired sound but with more use it makes it easier. Added bebfit it works great with both electric and semi-electric guitars. love it!!!!!
