I finally caved in and bought a Boss GT-10B yesterday. I have to say that it really does sound nice. I almost like it better through the headphones it sounds so nice. I am an old fan of multi-effects units, so I took to it right away. It is pretty amazing what you can do to your sound with one of these things.
I only started messing around with the loop feature last night but as a bass player it's very handy and relatively simple to use.
In actual news - the Dethklok album and new season is about to drop and the tour is underway.
