How much does the Boss GT-100 Cost?
The Boss GT-100 price is currently set at$599.99 on Sweetwater. Other prices vary depending on bundles and retailer, though most stay close to the Sweetwater price. Used options on eBay and Reverb are typically available for significant discounts.
The Boss GT series has gone through several iterations, where the GT-100 was the second one released. Here's a quick list:
- Boss GT-1
- Boss GT-100
- Boss GT-1000
- Boss GT-1000CORE
But even after releasing the GT-1000 and 1000CORE, Boss has continued to sell the GT-100 and the GT-1. And both are much more affordable than the GT-1000. Note that the GT-100 and GT-1000CORE are both around the same price.
In this guide we'll be focusing on the Boss GT-100 price from multiple vendors with a few additional resources to help you get a good deal.
Bundles and Accessories
The GT-100 can shift depending on bundles and promotional offers. Amazon seems to have the most of these variations, but we've seen them on Sweetwater as well. Often it'll be the same price, but will through in something like a couple cables or a carrying case.
Condition of the Boss GT-100
If you buy used, or something like a B-stock unit, you'll usually see a pretty significant discount, depending on the age and condition of the GT-100. The manufacturing year often goes unnoticed, but it's a big part of determining value when buying used. See if you can spot that info before making a judgement on the price.

Amazon has a different system than most vendors, so we have to show their pricing separately and exclude them from the price alert and history sections below. They typically match the price of other retailers, but also seem to have more of the bundles we mentioned.

Is it worth the investment?
It might sound surprising, but $600 is not a lot for a multi-effects pedal these days. With monsters like the Line 6 Helix, Kemper Profiler, Neural DSP Quad Cortex, and even the Boss GT-1000, the GT-100 is at a really decent price point.
If you're the type of guitarist that wants to consolidate their pedalboard and move away from individual effects units, the GT-100 could actually save you some money.
It all depends on your situation and how you want your pedalboard setup.

Should I target used versions?
Used version of the GT-100 can definitely save you some money.
Since it's an older pedal, and since the GT-1000 is getting a lot of attention, the market is saturated with the GT-100s. In fact, we've see them as low as $250, which is crazy given how popular it still is.
Realistically, you'll probably end up paying somewhere in the low $400s or high $300s, but that's still a great discount.
If you want to buy used, check Reverb and eBay options.
Is the Boss GT-1000 better?
If you ignore price and value, the Boss GT-1000 is objectively better because it's newer and can do more.
But it's twice as expensive as the GT-100, which means it might not be a better option depending on how much money you want to spend. If the expense doesn't matter, than the GT-1000 is a better choice. But if you don't want to stretch your budget that high, the GT-100 is probably the better value.
We measure gear quality and value by the following rules:
- Value increases either by quality going up and/or price going down
- Value decreases either by quality going down and/or price going up
In this system you can't make a better or worse argument without taking price into account. Make sure to do so when making your decision.
There are a lot of factors impacting the Boss GT-100 price.
But at its current retail it's a great deal, and arguably a better deal than the GT-1000.
Keep an eye on manufacturing year, used options, pedal condition, bundles, and all the vendors we've listed to get the best deal possible. If you have questions about this price guide, we can help via the comments section below.
