To Buy: Boss GT100 or Zoom G5n or HD500x?
« on: May 20, 2017, 12:44:40 PM »
Hi!

I hope this is the right place to do this question.

I have a VG99 and I love it but, honestly, the COSM amps... It's not enough for my. I like another kind of amps sims. I think this issue must have improved since 2007 (VG99).

So I'm thinking buy a multi-effects and amps sims pedalboard.

I only play at home, never a gig.

So, which is the best? Sorry, I question properly: Which do you like more?

I heard GT100 has the best effects but HD500 the best amps sims. Zoom G5n has nice amps simps, I was pleasantly surprised! You can say "Zoom G5n es cheaper than GT100 and HD500x but not in my country...  :'(

So, I would like to know your opinions and if you can help me to decide.

I always pay attention to what you say (in fact, I asked you for advice to buying the GR55 and I declined to do it!) and also learn!

Best regards from Argentina!

Pato.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Ooooook, I know the Kemper and Axe are the top of the tops. But are very expensives to me.
For instance, in my country, GT100 / HD500x they cost 10.000 aprox.
Axe or Kemper, 80.000!!

The Boss GT-1 might be worth a look at too.
It depends on what features are important to you.
GT-100 has it all, with the dual amps/cabinets, S/R loop, sound looper, metal case, control pedals.
GT-1 has most of the GT-100 tones, with no dual amps, less control pedals, and a lot less price.

Might be worth waiting until the end of June, when some new guitar gear is to be revealed.

Thanks, I saw it!
Pro: small size, most of GT-100 tones
Cons: not dual amps, less I/O

If want connect my VG99 (to COSM guitar) and another pedals (DigiTech FreqOut Natural Feedback Creator) to my new multi-effect (to amps sims), do I need fx return / fx send?

Thank you very much!
Unfortunately (for this kind of stuff) I live in Argentina. This news products maybe arrive on 2020... if we're lucky!

My opinion based on my experiences.........Zoom= good effects and amp sims but very limited control features. so I would likely sratch that from the list. GT100 vs HD500x=both have decent amp sims and effects, both have good signal routing capability, basically apples and oranges. I would be happy with either in that aspect. However, I found the HD500x more difficult to understand the user interface and work with vs the GT100. My opinion, go with the GT100. I believe they are pretty much the same as far as pricing.

Thanks Mrchevy! The last week I chose HD500, but today... I don't know!! I trhing maybe, just maybe, the GT100 and my VG99 works better together... you know, Roland+Boss maybe is better than Roland+Line6...

Personally I regret buying the pod HD 500X because the software is old fashioned and its not that easy to get to grips with. That said, the GT 100 is SOOOOOO easy.

Just my 2 Euro cents

I've owned the Zoom G5n as well as the GT-100. I love the way the G5n shows the patch and exact effects names, but it's really not gig-worthy like the GT-100. It's delicate and more had noise issues when using anything with comp and OD at the same time.
