Boss is a company known for making a wide variety of guitar effect pedals. The Boss GT6 is an advanced guitar multi-effects processor, which means that it packs many different effects types such as distortion, chorus and amp modelling into a single unit. A guitar is connected to the pedal, which is in turn connected to an amp to project sound, as the unit contains no on-board speakers or other such device for independent playback.

  1. 1

    Connect the GT6 to the guitar and amp with the two instrument cables. A cable will run from the guitar into the main input jack on the back of the pedal, and one cable will run from the main mono output into an amp.

  2. 2

    Flip the power switch in the back of the pedal to the on position and turn on the guitar amp. Adjust the pedal's sound level with the output knob on the real panel of the unit.

  3. 3

    Press the "Output Select" button to select an amp type, and use the "Patch/Value" dial to change selections. The amp type selected should reflect the type of amp that the pedal is connected to.

  4. 4

    Press the "Bank" pedal to select a group of effects. Press the corresponding number pedal to select a single set of effects, called a patch. Once selected, the effects can be adjusted using any corresponding controls on the pedal.
