Legendary Swedish guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen has signed an endorsement deal with Roland/BOSS as part of their GS-10 Artist Patch Series. These are GS-10 sound sets created by guitar virtuosos. Download them into your GS-10 to play their same guitar sounds.

The following information about the GS-10 Guitar Effects System was taken from Yngwie's official web site: "Powered by COSMĀ® modeling, the GS-10 Guitar Effects System has everything guitar and bass players need for incredible tone-like all-new amp models, overdrive/distortion modeling, independent compression and more. Effects can be edited via front-panel knobs, or using bundled software. And recording is easy, thanks to a built-in USB port and convenient onboard speaker system. It's like having the ultimate BOSS effects processor and an audio interface in one!"

As previously reported, Yngwie is currently "working on the songs for his next rock album, and occasionally switching gears to do more work on his eagerly awaited next all-classical opus," according to a posting on his web site. In addition, Malmsteen is "spending his time playing tennis" and "hanging out with his family." Yngwie's next studio album is not expected until 2005.
