I need help choosing a stompbox. So far I have looked at Line 6 Floor POD Plus, Boss GT-8 and Boss ME-70.

Which of those are the best?

Gt-10 here. I absolutely love it. I can create pretty much any tone on the fly.

Is me-70 a bigger version than me-20?

ME-20, I thought it was a good on paper one but no, it sounds terribly digital.
Boss GT-8 is the previos version. That POD is even older, right?

I've heard good things about GT-8, I think I'd go for that one.

IMO, it would be Boss ME70 without doubt. Second option would be Boss GT8.

I second that. It's the best multieffects unit I've used so far. After getting a bit used to how it works. So you might want to consider saving up some more money to get that one. If the "Line 6 Floor POD Plus" is based on the original POD Technology at least the amp modeling sucks. I can't remember about the effects though. The GT-8 is imho the better choice. Haven't tried the ME-70 tough.

I've got the GT-8 and i love it!
The GT-10 is an improvement though and the whole procedure of making good sounds is made really easy.
But the advantage with the GT8 now is that you can get one for nearly nothing since it's out of production.

If it has to be a multieffects unit than GT8...Maybe you want to look into pedals and make a pedalboard...You won't need so many of them to make a good quality setup that can sound better then multieffects units..

I dont live in the US so its 86$ for the shipping.
So the final price would be on 515$

Anyway I think I should read the Brillance Document beacause I need to learn about all the features of the GT-8
