Plus, it features gapless preset changes with reverb and delay tail spillover, a built-in looper with 20 minutes of record time, the ability to load custom impulse response files and exclusive original boutique effects that can't be found anywhere else. Whether you're looking for a classic warm vintage amp with natural tube drive, wide ambient stereo delay textures with infinite feedback or the heaviest of heavy djent tone, the HeadRush Gigboard covers it all and everything between.

7-Inch Touch Display
The heart of the HeadRush Gigboard is the 7-inch touch display and a guitarist-centric, ultra-intuitive user interface literally touch, swipe and drag-and-drop to instantly create and edit rigs with amazing speed and accuracy.

You can even drag-and-drop to create set lists (custom orders of rigs) for your gigs.

Easy to use and sounds great. I checked out the competition which can't compete with Headrush's intuitive menu navigation and 7" touch screen. I would've preferred having XLR outputs which the larger "Headrush Pedalboard" has, but I went with the more compact Gigboard. Make sure to update it because there's a bunch of new pedals, effects, amps, and cab IRs.

This unit is easy to use, looks great, sounds great and should have everything you need... unless you need to plug it into a computer via USB to record direct, or to backup/transfer files back and forth. It failed me once, about 7 months in (and took 8 full weeks to repair and send back), and the the repair failed me another 7 or so months down the road - no word yet whether they plan to stand behind the repair or not. I don't like the lack of an XLR out either - most venues have an XLR cable waiting that just plugs into the front of house, but with this unit, you can't connect to it easily. The website wouldn't let me give a 0 for quality. There are other options out there. Choose them.

I tend to be an “early adopter” of various technologies and this one is a winner. It sounds fantastic (note: adding impulse responses or “IRs” to each patch will make it way better.... and the factory patches are nothing to write home about) when you tweak your own settings and dial things in just like you would on a real amp - from clean Fender tones to high gain rectified tones. It is small and portable and quite flexible. The touch-screen interface is dead easy to navigate. Matched with the Headrush FRFR112 (full range flat response speaker 2000W), it really is a winning combination. Super loud, and feels like you’re playing a “real” amp. Reverbs and delays spill over (if you set them to) to the next patch so patch changes sound natural. The new firmware v2.1 now includes a great 5150 amp model and a drop tune pedal, which compares quite favourably to the digitech drop. That all said, I still need two pedals. I use a wah pedal (never been able to find a model that suits me - especially one that has auto-engage) in front of it, and a tech21 midi mouse to give me extra functionality for scrolling through presets. Even with that, I don’t feel like I’m missing out by not getting the full pedalboard.

I bought this unit after trying another brands small multi effect which turned out to be a nightmare with all the buttons and small screen which took a while just to create a decent tone. The Headrush was so easy to create an amazing tone and so simple with the 7" screen and very user friendly, so glad I got this unit.
