Great deal for the price!

By axeman_169

from Texas

I bought this pedal years ago when it was the top of digitech's line. Even at the $500 price tag back then it was a great deal for the price. The only problems I have with it is the recording program is a little weak, the built in drum machine is pretty much a glorified metronome, and it only has a MIDI connection to link it to a computer. Other than that I have used it to record numerous songs and its great when you just want to jam but cant get the band together, just lay a couple of backing tracks and wail away. I've had mine for a few years now and it still works like new. The only pedal I would even consider using after owning this onw is maybe the GNX4 for the better drum machine and the USB connection.

My favorite 'station

By more_guitars

from Austin, TX

The DigiTech GNX3 Guitar Workstation is my favorite workout tool. You get so many features in a rugged floorboard it's almost ridiculous. Besides all the tweakable parameters, my favorite feature is that there are actually quite a few decent presets. You don't have to extensively twiddle around to get some usable sounds. But, if you're so inclined, you can twiddle till your thumbs turn blue. The hands-free recorder and looper are also great features that really add a lot of value to the unit. You not only get credible amp and cabinet simulations, you get a slew of effects, a built-in drum machine, a foot pedal, a looper, a multi-track recorder and (with an optional footswitch) the ability to use the looper WITH the recorder simultaneously. . .all HANDS FREE. Whew. Did I mention that I also own a dozen other modeler/multi effects units but that the GNX3 is the only one I consider essential gear? Pick one up before they all disappear. And get the case for it, too. They're great.

Nice Pallette Of Tones

By Rob

from Ellington, CT

I?ve used this pedal for quite some time now. I find that you can dial in any kind of sound you want from this thing. The factory presets are great, but once you get technical enough to tweak the settings on your own, there is absolutely no sound you can?t get from this thing. This thing even made my garbage amp sound like a $2000.00 Terminator!! Play it through a good amp, and look out you come!!!

Disspointing Software

By Matt Kramer

from Milford, CT

I love everything about the pedal except for the computer recording software it comes with. All of the CDs say that you need to buy the full version because they are demos. And the one full version CD that it comes with is no longer in service so that means its website doesnt exist anymore which means that there is no way to download tracks.

so far so good

By Scott

from Naples, FL

I just received my GNX3 today. I have been playing guitar for 7 hours straight. Stopped to write this review. I am just a hacker on the guitar, not a pro. I wish I had bought this workstation (or one like it) years ago. So many cool sounds and features. The 8 track recorder is great. It is easy to use, and you can lay down a drum track with backing guitar to solo on top of. Great way to work on scales and phrases. The manual can be a bit confusing, and the drum tracks aren't as good as they could be. Overall, this product seems well worth the cost. I am playing a Les Paul and a Charvel through it and out of my Marshall combo amp. It sounds amazing. Anyway...if you have the $300 it is a good buy. Enjoy!

The best for the best

By Andrew

from Slovakia

If you like to be creativ with the music you play, then you will love the GNX3! You can get any sound out of this box...and make your own. I love the 8 track recorder. It's like a note pad where you can write down your ideas. Very handy!! I realy like the sound and the easy way it works. The search for a useful and affordable mashine is over.

Big Bang for the buck

By Daversatek

from Baraboo, WI

The GNX3...what can I say, I love this thing. The only real complaint I have (if you can call it that) is that it records to smart media cards and is limited to what available. I would like to see it be able to record direct to a PC. Anyways... The amount of features packed in these units is awesome, with an infinite amount of tonal possibilities. I have owned mine for a year and still, yes still, have much exploration to do; and Digitech's sound community is a great resource - check it out.

Pedal For The Pros

By ksweitz

from California

I bought this pedal as a beginner. I do not recomend this pedal for the adverage Joe. This pedal can do more than you can think possible. At first, it is hard to learn, but once you learn it the options are endless. If you like very digital sounds this is the pedal for you. You can tweek all of the effects to soot your musical preferences. The 8 track recorder is a blessing. If your buddy plays a hard rift and you want to learn it, this program slows the rift down to any speed so you can learn it step by step. Over all, this pedal will be perfect for the professional player who likes endless possibilities of cool digital effects.

A solid value

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

This is a great budget effects processor. This unit has many usable effects, plus you can modify them to fit your needs. This unit can be connected to your computer enabling you to record with the computer! If I would compare it to a POD unit I would say that it is not quite as good, but it is only a small fraction of the cost. If you need a lot of guitar effects and you can?t afford a POD this unit will be a great alternative. The unit is built well and it should last for a long time if used properly.

Great Buy

By NoName

from Corpus Christi, TX

I got bored of my Boss DS-1 and needed more effects so I bought this. You can play any style of music with it and it has tons of effects. The looper is probably one of the most useful features because you can play along with yourself. It even has a preset that makes your guitar sound like a bass so you can have bass in your recording. You can even use it as a talkbox if you have a mic. The sound quality isn't as good as some of the other effect boards but is alot cheaper and is better deal because it has an eight track recorder, drum machine, and a looper. I would recommend this to anyone who wants more effects and is on a budget. I give it a four overall because it is digital and doesn't sound as good as individual stompboxes.

i didnt like it

By daniel


for about 2 years i used the gnx3 on church(playing different styles of music)4 times on a week and mi idea of digitech dindt change at all: sounds are good,but thats all,most of it (specially distortions) sounds like a toy,when you use the expression pedal as a whammy, it sounds really poor.and the WORST are the switches ,just 5 or 6 months latter of purchase began to fail,the drum machine and record feature are ok for fun. so,my advice:do not buy this.


Good Pedal

By dAtaZniNvAziN256

from Undisclosed

I originally purchased this pedal in store at a Guitar Center. It is a pretty good pedal, with a lot of effects including a good 50-70 presets. You can alter the presets yourself, and resave them as your own names. There are many things to tweak, as the pedal offers many options such as "noisegate", "treble, mid, high knobs", "reverb and delays" and "warp". There are a lot more features, and it gets a little confusing at first. After reading the manual, you will start to understand it more. The GNX3 is a tank though, i've dropped mine a few times, and it hasn't even showed a bit of damage. It is virtually indestructible if you use it properly, not if you mistreat it. It is very easy to use with the floor pedals. The only thing i didn't like about it was the sound quality, and i thought that the interface could of had a less sensetive wah pedal. Overall it is a good pedal for live and recording purposes.


good petal for practice and gigs

By Nate

from GA

I go this petal about a year ago and it rocks. It can crank out some crazy distortion and a sweet clean tones for arpegio. The only thing that I don't like is it is hard to switch from things like flanger to trigphaser during live gigs and that you are confined to presets but other than that its good.


Great Pedal!

By RockStarInMyOwnMind

from Phoenix, AZ

I got this pedal about a week ago and love it! It can put out some crazy sounds! I run it through a 100 watt Marshall with a Les Paul and get great sounds. The only downfall is it using a Smart Media Card. (I got a converter and a XD Card for about half of what a 128 Smart Media card would cost)
