Boss ME-5 1988 vs GT-100 2012.
Now I was playing 'em both the other day and whilst in terms of features and versatility the GT-100 wins hands down. In terms of sound quality I found myself more impressed with the ME-5!!! :eek: Course the ME-5 being over 20yrs old is all analogue except for its reverb and delay module vs a more digital GT-100. Maybe thats what it is...I need to get myself into gear and start tweaking the GT-100 cos it surely is capable of some great sounds but I do find myself often thinking that many of todays processors in some ways ie sound of the drives haven't really gone forward much if at all. I've no plans for the GT-100 in a band setting...but if I ever do I can only see it being FX only and use my fave drive pedals in its loop or go 4CM with my Marshall.
I keep thinking the ME-5 and a tuner/Wah in front of it and maybe a 2nd delay and volume pedal after it could become my main board. I could probs get by with 1 row of 4 pedals for most stuff..or use it in manual mode. I generally have simple needs! :eek:
