The best system effects period

By Stringblade

from Lawrenceville, Georgia

Comments about TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller:

If you are looking for a great effects system look no further. The Gsystem has everything, it ties all your effects and amp control all from the same foot pedal. It has the legendary TC Electronic great sounding effects, and adds to it the ability to loop in 3 different stomp boxes that can be part of the signal chain which can be preset for each patch. This allows you to add a distortion pedal in a preset with out tap dancing. If that all wasn't enough it awill also switch amp channels either by the dedicated footswitch out or via midi. Also TC Electronics keeps updateding the firmware and you can upgrade for free, to keep current.

G System

By Jeremy Lovins

from Connersville, Indiana

Comments about TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller:

I have played with many different setups, and the g system is the best I have use to date. If you want to use your amp's, pre-amps then it is the best for its price range. While it is not plug and play, once you get it setup for you, you don't have to mess with it much. The way it does mulitiple amps, I'm not a big fan of. Over all I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Exactly what I needed

By Nick

from Burke, VA

Comments about TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller:

I bought this system because it lets me run a single cable back to a rack where everything, including the handful of pedals I still need, is hooked up. The flexibility I get with this system, coupled with presets for everything, are awesome. It's not as easy to set up as a bunch of pedals, but it's so much better once you figure it out. All of the effects are top notch, unlike other multi-effect units. In fact, many of the effects on here are better than TC's standalone units, in part because they are so much more configurable. I will say that when you first plug it in, you will probably notice a lot of hum - you'll want an Ebtech Hum Exterminator to go with this unit (TC's forums have a good walkthrough on setting that up). The unit is incredibly solid - I think it must be stainless steel. It weighs a good 20 lbs. I don't think any amount of abuse could ever break this thing.

Overly and Unnecessarily Complex

By MARCOS MIRANDA

from Leominster, MA

Comments about TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller:

I'm not the one to usually complain but here's a dose of reality when considering the G System. If you think you'll unbox it, read a quick start guide and start jamming think again. I'm hooking my G System to a Mesa Triple Rec and it was a nightmare to get it right. Every necessary hook up and tweak was found after hours of forum research. The owner's manual is very vague and poor on information. Prepare to be very frustrated if you decide to buy one of these. Also, make sure you buy a TRS cable for the relay channel switching. This is another huge disappointment with this unit. And if you're connecting it to a Road King you'll need to invest on an amp gizmo (just under $300). Nothing pleasant here either. If you decide to turn to TC Electronic's tech support you'll probably agree they're by far the worst out there. They just seem not to care. Perhaps because the Bruins beat the Canucks? And lastly, if you have a pedal board you're currently happy with don't get rid of it for the G System. After hours and hours of online learning and tweaking you'll enjoy the final product but it's a painful system to work with. Downloading the G System Editor is a must in order to make your life easier for editing and creating patches. The tones sound nice but it's nothing you can't get out of high quality pedals. The verdict: 2 starts for lack of support and clarity how to use it and 4 starts for overall quality and tone.

dont buy

By william travis

from tulsa okla.

Comments about TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller:

this thing is a lesson in futility please don't buy unless you like updating and playing with settings all the time. while it is tc and has great sounds look for something else. I had a digitech rp20 it was much easer to use and user friendly. I replaced it for the g system and what a mistake.use a laptop to name youre offsets and setting. and you will be able to lift youre head up to curb level.

Research and patience

By Dat Nguyen

from Reston, Va

Comments about TC Electronic G-System Integrated Guitar Effects and Controller:

Without both you'll be returning this unit like every other guitarist who thinks a new piece of gear is going to make them sound that much better. I've gone through 100's of different rigs over my 25 years of playing and this may or may not last but it's one of the best organized and designed systems I've had the opportunity to work with. If you want a plug and play, buy a line 6 pod. If you want a complex and custom rig the size of a fridge and is a back breaker, with more cables and potential issues, prepare to spend well over $3000 for something comparable. I use this amp with a standard Marshall 2 channel amp and a Hughes and Kettner switchblade 100, both sound great. The effects sound great and it's built extremely well. And it's really not that complicated if you've owned a nicer, higher end effects unit by lexicon or a g force. But do your research and plan on spending a weekend to integrate and set up OR hire someone to set it up for you.
