T.C electronics G-Magor?

The name says it all! Discuss Steve's studios, your studios and gear set-ups, amps and effects here. This is not for discussing guitars (Steve's or otherwise).

Im thinking about getting a G-Major. Does anybody have one if so could you give your opinions on it. Please tell me it doesn't sound like a pod or some type of Digitech.

I'd be interested to hear as well. We've just got a FireworX for the studio, but I was thinking about getting a G-Major for my guitar setup.

If it sounds anything near as good as the FireworX it sounds amazing.

I had a g-major until recently. The variety of presets were pretty nice but I found after awhile that the presets i was using most were those with chorus and delay. In addition, the g-major took something off the tone of my Mesa (couldn't quite put my finger on it). Sooooo....I ended up selling the g-major as well as the Berringer midi pedalboard and have since gone back to floor pedals. As a result, I've never been happier with my sound.

As always...tone and happiness is in the eyes and ears of the beholder.

Peace!

very simple, very tranparent, not very expensive, can switch you amp or préamp, there's a 3 bd equalizer (you can sculpt your sound!)...

Hi melodic dreamer,
Your user name sounds familiar????
From the Line6 site?
Anyhoo...I went from my ax2 to a boogie rig with a G Major.
Fantastic effects unit. The effects are wonderful but I agree with tjpierce
The G major takes something away from the tone and like him I don't know exactly what it is but you can notice it.

how much of something? Is it much of a bad thing or not that big a deal?

I haven't noticed that, but then again I'm no pro.
What I do know is that the G-Major has the same quality effects as the G-Force (they both use the same DSP), although with less possible settings and routes. It's the little bro of the G-Force, but they didn't compromise on sound quality. I think the thing sounds great and I would only replace it with a G-Force one day.
