Boss's ultra-compact Pocket GT mini amp modeler and multi-effects processor is one of the most feature-packed practice products launched in the guitar market over the past couple of years, designed to fast-track your learning and make your playing sound better than ever.

Now, in one of the most impressive Guitar Center Black Friday deals we've seen yet, Guitar Center has slashed $100 off the list price of the ultra-portable unit, bringing the cost down from an already-attractive $249 to a remarkable $149.  

Headlined by an integrated YouTube learning function, 99 user memories, more than 100 amps and effects, and the same sound engine as Boss's GT-1 floor processor, the Pocket GT is genuinely small enough to fit into your pocket.

With an integrated YouTube learning function, 99 user memories, 100 amps and effects, the same sound engine as Boss's GT-1 floor processor, and more, the Pocket GT is a terrific & portable practice Swiss Army Knife. Now, thanks to Guitar Center, it's available for a mouth-watering discount.

The Pocket GT's user memories come filled with ready-to-play sounds, but guitarists can customize these or create their own from scratch. Stored setups – for both amps and effects – can also be exchanged with the GT-1 via their respective Boss Tone Studio editors.

Speaking of the Tone Studio, that app offers a YouTube browser that streams sound straight to the Pocket GT. The unit's user memory switching function allows for switching up sounds as a video plays, and that's not all – users can assign user memories to markers, create video song lists and set markers to repeat sections.

There's a center cancel function to tamp down the volume of guitar solos and vocals in videos and music tracks, while users can also wirelessly stream music via Bluetooth or via the Pocket GT's Aux In jack.

As if all that wasn't enough, there's an onboard tuner, a built-in rechargeable battery with up to four hours of runtime and a USB audio interface that allows users to record into a DAW. 

It's an incredible amount of functionality in such a tiny package, and for $149, this is a super-enticing deal for anyone looking for a versatile practice tool that makes jamming along to YouTube videos a more efficient way to rehearse and a quicker way to learn.

There aren't many other devices on the market quite like this one, so we don't expect this deal to last for long.

If this sort of discount piques your interest, we've got plenty more where that came from – on all sorts of guitar gear – on our Black Friday guitar deals page.
