Overview

The Fender G-DEC 30 is an updated version of the top-selling, award-winning G-DEC that gives guitarists even more of what they loved about the original with upgrades based on customer feedback from around the world. As with its predecessor, the G-DEC 30 is a guitar amplifier with digital amp modeling, effects, backing loops, phrase sampler, and tuner, all in one great-sounding package. A total of 76 Performance Preset (38 performance and 38 teacher) includes all of the originals plus numerous additional loops. Each Performance Preset includes drum beats, bass lines, and other instruments that provide a musical backing track that is fully customizable. The added Composition Mode also allows individual measures to be combined by the user into whole songs.

The professional-quality suite of amps, effects, and backing loops in the G-DEC 30 can be sent out to external cabinets or PA systems through rear-panel speaker and line outputs. CD or MP3 devices can also be easily hooked up for play-along practice. The internal 28-second Phrase Sampler can sample the incoming guitar signal to create loops, or song snippets may be captured for careful study. The Phrase Sampler can also create sound on sound overdubs for spontaneous musical creations.

Additional features include on-board MIDI song file memory; an optional 4-button footswitch that can access program selection and stop-start functions; and the ability for future software upgrades from Fender to easily be loaded via MIDI.

I used this amp because my friend had one. I asked to borrow it and was bummed when he wanted it back. It is very addicting. I then had to buy one for myself. I use it to keep the licks up to par when the band is'nt around. If you have this amp and love it, get the footswitch it makes it twice as nice, record and play at the tap of your foot. I have a couple various stacks and many cabs but I love to use this one the most. Like the many before me have said this is an EXCELLENT tool to learn guitar with and AWESOME entertainment for a seasoned musician. I would recommend this to any player.

Amazing

By Rene

from Texas

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

I tried out this amp with an epiphone les paul and it sounded amazing. There's so many settings on it you can always have something new to play around with and get the sounds you're looking for. I'm going to sell my two amps and buy this one. It's simply amazing I can't wait to get one of my own.

Oooh the effects! So quiet...

By Vipeream

from Texas

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

Well, its no joke you can basically make any sound on this amp, but it is a big pain. Every adjustment goes through a knob that you must turn painfully slow get the response you want. You can't really use petals and the wah feature is redundant since you have no control over the it. The bass and drums sound clean enough, but extrememly quiet. The built in tuner is a nice feature, but it doesn't tune flat. If you want to fill a small room with music, this is the amp for you but if you plan on using petals or effects, or annoying your neihbors just get yourself a regular amp rather than this one.

It is what it is!

By Anthony B

from Manalapan N.J

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

First of all this has a lot of great features. This is not an amp for gigs this is an amp for practing and for having fun. I think some people have the wrong idea about this amp. Some of the effects are cheesy so dont use them. You can change the drum pattern and the bass and also play in different keys. I have this amp and I get a lot of great sounds out of it and it has 85 drum patterns to play and also you can take the bass or drums out of the patterns. I think for the price you can do alot of things with it. Practice your chords and do you own lead work in different keys. Not every has a drummer or bass player around all the time with this amp you do.

Really modern tech

By Old player

from Toronto Ontario

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

Even with a very low end $50 guitar it seems able to imitate practically any guitar sound by combining and dosing the effects, including "clinical" clear channels and old valve technology. But I think it's not for those who still cherish only the pre 1960's technologies, especially if they are computer-phobic. Nor is it appropriate for those who cannot hear less than 100 Watt outputs. But for the price, they may want to buy it just as a multiple effects pedal and plug it into their vintage amps. The user manual is poorly written, unfortunately, therefore figuring it out is required which is quite annoying.

Worth Every Penny!

By bxg88

from L.A. California

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

The Fender G-Dec 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center is worth it's weight in gold. As a former proffessional I miss jamming with my band mates. This unit not only delivers quality sound but is fun to have as it is literally what I call "a band in a box". I've shared with several friends and they all want one. Thanks Fender for putting the excitement back into playing!

Fender G-dec 30

By JHStewart18

from Aspen, Colorado

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

I had a chance to play the new G-dec 30 with a Fender rep, and was blown away. It has twice the wattage of the original!(30 watt). More features. Load your own songs onto the amp. It makes the once 'practice amp only' a multi-use amp for all players. The effects come easier with more time with the amp, but a ton of fun. My only concern was with the 'loop effect'; the buttons are really small, and its hard to get the timing right. Other than that, get ready for another great product from Fender!

Fender G-DEC 30

By teleman14

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

Well I finally picked this bad boy up a few weeks ago and let me say wow! It's definitely more of a "practice" amp due to the multiple effects and beats. If you're playing in front of a crowd I'd suggest a normal amp. It definitely helps when I write songs for my band due to the bass and drum beat settings. Also don't expect to plug in a mic while the fuzz effect is on because your vocals will be just as fuzzy. It's an amazing amp for the money and it's fender so you know it's good quality. Gotta love it!

Seeing and Hearing is believing !

By EZEGibson Deluxe

from Irving, Texas

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

I have been waiting for this amp all my life. I tried the Fender G Dec in the music store and was impressed of the quality of sound and preset music. A crowd began to gather as I played, and I don't play that well. It just has to many attributes to list. I purchased the Fender G Dec 30 for a little more power and features. Its great having a quality back up band at my finger tips.

I love this Amp!

By Bigazzahouse

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

I don't play professionally, just for my own enjoyment. This thing is awesome! It has 50 canned backgrounds (Bass, Drums, Keyboards etc) and thousands of possibilities. I have had this amp for about a month and use it every day. The only down side to this amp is that once I turn it on, I have trouble putting my guitar down (now I get to bed late every night). I originally purchased the 15watt version, but upgraded to the 30W for the larger speaker and additional features. I am very happy with this amp. After using for 30 days I have only begun to explore all of the possibilities it has to offer. In my opinion, this is probably not an amp for gigging or jamming with a band. But for practice and entertaining yourself, this amp is awesome!

good for those who move equipment a lot

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

This is a good little amp. It has almost every setting under the sun. This i found can be good and bad. Like most songs in the world, the setting doesnt stay at a distortion or a reverb or delay. other than that, its great. really light for the player who has to move stuff around a lot

pretty good

By Way Up There

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

This amp works really well in a few situations. The first is when you are at home without somebody else to play with because you can create your own beats and make rhythm tracks to play over. The only thing I dont like is that it doesn't work well for concerts or anywhere with loud noises because it is pretty quiet and doesnt always deliver a consistent tone

Really Great Amp

By stratkid

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

Wow!This amp is way good. You can make virtually any sound with it. Distortion, Acoustic, Wah, Feedback, Chorus, Delay, anything. And any combination too. It has a ton of premade sound settings, and you can make your own too. It also has backing tracks wiht bass, drums, and keyboard. You can edit those too. It also has a second jack for if u want to jam with a friend and u only have one amp. It has a record setting to so you can overdub and everything. It's got a built in tuner too, so you can get your notes exact. A jack in the back for iPod, mp3, or CD player hookup, so you can play along with your songs. This amp gets loud too. I bug the neighbors when the volume is on 3. Anyways, this is a great amp and i can't say enough about it without sounding like an infommertial.

Great Amp

By Matt

from Charlotte NC

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

Quality amp with lots of options/abilities... only thing I didnt like about it is that its volume doesn't get that loud... BUT I was able to hook it up to a big heavy old Peavey and get the effects and its massive volume.... so, yeah, you can definitely pull off some neat stuff with this amp! Good buy.

This Amp is a MUST HAVE

By Alastair

from Perth, Australia

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

I bought this little wonder for a small gigging Amp traveling far and wide as I do here in Oz and in Asia. I am now using it along side my JCM 800 & 900 - it has a 200 W Amp feeding a 300W PA system (my setup) and it sounds just incredible. Don't judge it by the 30W speaker that it comes with - add some Amplification and some serios Celestions/JBL's/EV's/Yamaha Studio's - and you have one serious set-up!! You don't have to spend much to make this piece of kit sound Awesome!! 10/10 for Fender! Recommended!!

Very nice amp for exploring and practicing.

By RayK

from Minnesota

Comments about Fender G-DEC 30 Guitar Digital Entertainment Center:

I had my doubts on the price, but really glad I got it as it sounds great and you can change the type of sound to virtually anything you want. Only had it a week and haven't tried everything yet, but I spend a lot of time playing because it sounds that good. My Fender Princeton Chorus isn't getting used now.

I love this amp! Everything is digital, so you have great tonal range. It has almost every effect you can think of, and some you cant think of. This amp is perfect for experimenting with sound or studio use. I would suggest buying it.
