I have the Headrush Gigboard, and I love it! I'm a big Boss fan too and had a few GT series in the previous years. So, I bought the GT-1000CORE when it first came out to replace my Gigboard. However, the Headrush was just better. So, I returned the Boss. My recent projects here used the Gigboard. I don't need frequent firmware updates and whatnots because it is good as is for me already. I have 2 FRFR108 cabs for stereo too. Hail Headrush!
