Review for: Roland GP-100
Purchase price of 500 USD
Rating: 4.0
Comments:I can't imagine a better buy, even at a high price like this. I'm stunned by how quiet it is - quieter than my hard disk recorder and the Mackie! The versatility is stunning; with the Dan Torres varitone on my SG '62 reissue, and the settings on the Geep, I can get everything from '60s psychrock to Robin Trower, Hendrix, Cream, Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Randy Rhoads, Keith Richard, you name it - Strat, Telecaster, Les Paul, SG - it does it all. I'm taking one point off for the lukewarm user interface and the undocumented gain staging issues, but once you know how to get around these problems, you're in tone heaven. Highly recommended. You may hear of the Boss GX-700. This is a similar box, with a different user interface and FX setups. It's available (9/18/98) for $329, but check to see that it's a late model. According to some sources, the early models had severe problems with the reverb. But if it's a new one, you can get just about the same setup as the Geep for about $330.
