BOSS GKC-AD GK CONVERTER

Drive the Next-Generation Serial GK Interface from a Roland GK-3 or GK-3B Divided Pickup
The latest BOSS guitar synthesizer products feature the Serial GK digital interface, a newly developed connection method that delivers evolved performance over the analog 13-pin GK interface used in earlier BOSS and Roland guitar synth and modelling products. The GKC-AD GK Converter allows you to drive the Serial GK input on the GM-800 Guitar Synthesizer from a Roland GK-3 or GK-3B Divided Pickup or an instrument equipped with a 13-pin GK output.

FEATURES

  • Converts analog 13-pin GK pickup systems to the newly developed Serial GK digital interface
  • 13-pin GK input and Serial GK output
  • Instrument output for passing normal guitar/bass pickup sounds embedded in the 13-pin connection
  • Compact and rugged metal design

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!
