Lightweight yet sturdy
Designed for the touring or travelling musician, the GT-1 is as rugged as they come. A lightweight design ensures it’s easy to carry and the modern design without hard edges ensures it slips in and out of your guitar bag’s accessory compartment easy and won’t damage anything in transit. The seven-hour battery life powered by 4x AA size batteries makes it a perfect option for street performers, buskers or those who play mobile gigs.
