Soul, what you described is called the "4-cable method". Without getting into details, you have to sacrifice your OD/Distortion FX on the GT-6 to be able to bothe use your Amp's and the GT's pre-amp beside each other. You may not cry over not being able to use the MT-2 simulation, but you might want to use OD's and tubescreamer sim and such.
On the GT-8, they solved this problem, so you can hook it up, and still be able to use the OD with your amp.

Besides, the GT-8's simulations are tweaked, and a lot of it's pre-amps (especialy the high gain ones) are much more usable. I wished I shelved the extra 50 bucks for it.

It would be the squier that sucks, not the pedal. I don't think it has a BOSS MT-2 built in. I think it just has it's own overdrive. The overdrive isn't the best part of the pedal though, the effects are. They're good quality.

Yup. I just finished my research today and I'm going to get the GT-8

I know, I know. It's a God damn tone sucking multieffects pedal and I have always hated them because of the shit I have tried in years passed. I tried it today and I was shocked that it was so cool. They let me fuck with it for 3 hours today ( read the manual first or you will be lost and hate it ). I tried everything out on it and found that it was tweekable beyond belief. I even turned as much as I could off on the GT-8 and compared it to directly connecting the guitar to amp.... I could not hear a difference in the amps tone I even tried the "4 cord method" and it worked very well. The dude at Guitar Center freaked out while I was hooking it all up though but once it was all done he was impressed.

The best news is that they have a clean used one with a power supply for $349. Tomarrow I am bring all my old gear to see what I can get for it all. I'm sure they will trade me strait up for it.

I was also wrong about the other post I made here about the GT-8 only having a few more features. It does in fact have some settings that the GT-6 doesn't. It seem that the GT-8 is indeed more flexable then the GT-6.

You are wrong wrong on the "own overdrive" part. It has dozens of simulations of Boss OD/Distortion pedals, with the MT-2 being one of them.

@SOUL: Have fun with it mate!

if he's asking people for suggestions on an internet forum and actually considering units like the rp200.... he is not yet ready for an eventide.

Doesn't it have that COSM feature too where once you pick past a certain threshhold it changes the patch? (sorry I don't know how to explain it better)

What, so you're playing chords and its in one patch, then when you solo about 12th on the 4th string, it changes to a different patch?

Imagine a 5 string sweep, it'd sound ridiculous switching patches all the time

Damn Guitar Center I took my Crate half stack in there to trade it for the GT-8 and everything was going fine. The dude was going to strait up trade me the GT-8 for the Crate until the big boss dude of the place came over and got nosey. Once he learned that we were going to trade he asked me to go look around for a minute. Said he needed to talk with the guy that was about to do te trade.

20 minutes later the dude found me and said the boss shot the deal down. The boss wanted $300+ my amp and cab, no exceptions. The poor dude looked hurt to even have to tell me that news. He was about to go get it the GT-8 to when it all happened.

I told him I didn't like his boss and he said his boss didn't give a shit about customer happiness. He looked as bumed as I was about the whole thing.

Pfff... No way was I going to agree to that deal. $300+ my gear? The boss was trying to rip me off big time.

Go there when the boss isn't there, and try and do the same deal with a different sales person

I might just do that actually, but I know that people will talk with each other there. They will know what I'm doing. Their boss was a little emo looking prick anyway. I think I'll just post it on ebay and see what I can get.

I was expecting to maybe pay some cash for it but not $300.

I didn't think GT-8s were _that_ expensive, i thought they were about 250, and its expensive over here.

They are $450 here but the one I wanted was used and cost $350. The boss was only offering me $50 for my gear. The amp and cab are mint and very clean. I take good care of my things. It was insulting
