The GT-Pro was hailed by Roland and Boss to be the best thing in effects units since sliced bread. But exactly how good was this 'top of the line' Roland product exactly? Was it really the mutts nuts? Find out more below...

DV-Mark Multiamp Amp Amplifier Review

1st May 2013

         dv-mark-multiamp-review

I just bought a DV-Mark Multiamp and a couple of 1x12 speakers designed to work with this amp for review. This is another emulator or simulator type of guitar amps.

Find out if this amp can topple the Axe-FX series and all the features that are built right in to the MULTIAMP such as a 500w amp for a bargain price! And does this amp deliver the goods?

Check out this review online ..take a look at the Multiamp from DV Mark and see the most in depth review to date on this product.

Roland GT-Pro Effects Review

Roland GT-Pro Effects Unit Review

 

It was originally in my rack, then it got moved to the studio rack.. then I sold it. It remained like new - simply because I could not get along with this unit - like the GT-8 I had, I really did not use it much.... You know the specs... but I would NOT buy another - basically overpriced for the rack version.

Boss used to howl about it... I howled at it...

I'm not going to go in to depth with this one. Lets just say that the GT-8 and this (mutton dressed as lamb) was not my cup of tea. You might like it.. but given that technology has moved on so far (checkout the VG-99) I would sell it... which I did.

Here's a few negatives I found:

  • Difficult to use
  • VERY difficult to use midi controlled (it did not work for me - see the GT-8 review
  • Overpriced for a similar product to the GT-8
  • Quite unhelpful support from Roland UK
  • Rating out of 10? About 2
  • I sold this one??? The money was better than the GT-Pro...

I stand by this review - for more of the same but worse checkout my GT-8 Review... and you thought it could not get worse? DON'T BUY ONE OF THESE.
