In this post, I will discuss two multi-effect guitar processors Boss Gt-1 and Zoom G3xn. The two processors are currently competing on an equal footing in the market. Both are of good quality. I will highlight the differences between these two processors.
The Boss GT-1 processor is a low gain processor. Boss GT-1 weighs 1.3 kg. It is a stylish and beautiful-looking processor. At the bottom of the back-lit screen are three control knobs and a row of functions and control buttons. It has a large expression pedal on the right and three feet.
It has a computer USB-like printer cable to exchange tones as output and has CTL 2,3 / XP2 jack to connect external pedals or expression pedals. There is a phone jack system to get the output on the computer speaker or headphones.
The Bose GT-1 has a built-in loop that allows you to record up to 32 seconds and play the recorded part over and over again. It has 108 effects.
The GT1 processor has both an adapter system and a separate battery system. Which G3XN does not have a separate battery system. The GT1 has a 7-hour battery backup.
The Zoom “G3 XN” processor is a high-gain processor. The “Zoom G3 XN” weighs 1.84 kg. It has a professional look. The unit has six feet, three LED lights above the top row. It has a very strong pedal.
The biggest feature is that it has three separate display screens. The display lets you control three settings simultaneously. So that you can set the tone quickly and in less time. This processor has 80 effects and has a built-in phrase-looper and a drum machine. You can work with this looper like a backing track. The looper will last up to 80 seconds after doing so. It is good for perfect practice.
The Zoom “G3 Xn” is usually powered by an AC adapter. It has no separate battery system. After installing the adapter, you have to turn it on by clicking on the on / off switch button.
Which would be best for you?
The current price of the Boss GT1 is $205.99 / BDT 18,500. Which is lower and cheaper than the Zoom G3 XN. It delivers better than both. But if you prefer the clear sound and good sound for good/medium gain then GT1 is for you.
The GT1 has more advantages. For example, it will give 8 hours backup via battery without an adapter which is a great backup for travel. The GT1 has the option to record directly to the PC. The interface and overall intuitive design of the Boss GT1 have easy-to-use and good features.
The current price of the Zoom G3XN is $249.99 / BDT 17,990. The Zoom G3 XN has even better loops with better built-in rhythm patterns and a growing range of pro patches. Which is 60 seconds longer than the Boss GT-1.
From the discussion above you can now purchase through consideration. I think Boss GT-1 will be better. Compared to the price and for better convenience. If you have any questions, please let us know in the comments below.
