2. QUICK DEMO
The Quick Demo is a way to get a customer interested in a product
in less than 60 seconds.
Before You Start
1. Plug In to Proper Amplification
Make sure the GT-10 is connected to good sounding amplification. We suggest
two pro quality amps, such as Roland JC-120s, or other amps that will not color
the GT-10’s tone. You can also use good quality powered studio monitors or a
PA system.
If you have two identical guitar amps with effect loops:
1. Plug the left MAIN Output of the GT-10 into the EFFECT RETURN oone
amp. If the amp has stereo returns, use the Left Return.
2. Plug the Right MAIN Output into the EFFECT RETURN of the other
amp. If the amp has stereo returns, use the Right Return.
3. Move the amps so they are about four or five feet apart.
If you have one guitar amp with a stereo effect loop, such as a JC-120:
1. Plug both MAIN Outputs of the GT-10 into the Left and Right EFFECT
RETURN of the amp.
If you have two identical guitar amps without effect loops:
1. Plug the Left MAIN Output of the GT-10 into the CLEAN channel of the
amp. If the amp has only one channel, plug into this channel.
2. Plug the Right MAIN Output of the GT-10 into the CLEAN channel of the
second amp.
3. Move the amps about four or five feet apart.
4. Set both amps for a clean sound with flat EQ
BOSS GT-10 Training Guide
If you have one guitar amp without an effect loop:
