I searched around for a while for an effects processor that would fit my situation. I finaly settled on the G-Major. All in all, it's a great processor. There is plenty of ways to tweak your settings. The reverb has so many ways it can be customized. It's a good idea to have a MIDI controller though. Otherwise it's not really worth having if you can't control it.The only down side I have with this unit is partly my amps fault. It has an effects-loop that is switchable for serial to parallel. Now the G-Major has a function in which you can do the same, but it doesn't effect the sound enough to where you can tell it's even there. The only way to get it heard though my amps fx-Loop, is crank the ins and outs. But it effects the amp's tone too much when those volumes are high. So you can switch the G-Major to run parallel and the amp's loop to run serial that way it doesn't effect your tone.I think this is a great addition to anyones rack as long as you are willing to experiment with different sounds to get what you are looking for.

T. C. Electronics, I feel, makes the best guitar processing equipment available on the market today! I also feel, however, that the G-Major isn?t worth the metal from which it?s made! The only reason that I picked up this piece of equipment is that I presently own a T.C. Electronics G-Force and haven?t been able to get rid of the dropout when I am changing banks on the fly. The G-Major does eliminate this problem but it comes with a hefty price; the tonal quality is severely lacking in comparison to the G-Force. I do have to say, however, that I am an extreme perfectionist when it comes to my effects and my tone. The G-Major is perfect for someone that is just beginning to work with complex effects or someone that isn?t worried about tonal perfection. If a person is just messing around in his garage or is playing small gigs around town, then the G-Major is perfect for him. The G-Major is not, however, for a person that has used professional level equipment such as the G-Force or Fireworx. I also have to say that the G-Major is not as user friendly as the G-Force and isn?t as flexible either. Some people may feel that the G-Major is the best thing on the market since the invention of cold beer but I just don?t feel that it is one of the best things to come from T.C. Electronics.

I took it back

By Akhenen

from Seattle, WA

Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

This unit was good on paper and had every effect I could ever want on my guitar, but it totally trumped my tone, and everything was way too sterile. I just couldn't handle it, so I took it back and got another speaker cabinet instead.

TC Electronics G-Major

By Takamine GB7C - Great Tone

from Naples, FL

See all my reviews

Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

For effects lovers, it doesn't get any better than this. Folks, this is the real deal. I had a Line 6 Podxtlive, which was decent for getting some different sounds, but if you really want clarity and punch and killer effects, you can't go wrong with this unit. It is really a unit for guitar lovers who like the sound of their instrument and amp's tone vs the Line6 which can make a $200 guitar/amp setup sound great. I took the advice from some other postings on here and got a BBE Sound Maximizer 362 with this. I play a PRS McCarty hollowbody and a Carvin DC135 with this setup thru a Fender Hot Rod Deville (with the 4 10s). It is a just amazing, a serious amount of fun. I always loved the psychedelic sounds of 60s and 70s (x deadhead/allmans..etc), and always tried to get some of those fat, far out sounds - this unit has a bunch of them preprogrammed in there - right out of the box, no tweaking. BUY IT - YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT (I HAVEN'T SO FAR). By the way, the band I'm in - they're totally blown away, it's like I'm not even playing the same instrument.

Great sound/processing quality

By Dmann

from Calgary, Canada

See all my reviews

Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

I bought T.C Electronics G-Major a few months ago. The sound quality of this effects processor is amazing, I spent a good month trying out all kinds of units before buying, and the G-Major is comparable to $1,000.00 units in terms of quality IMO. I play rhythm and lead guitars and my main Jam/Live rig consists of my ESP Guitar w/EMG's --> ADA-MP2 preamp --> G-Major (through the ADA effects loop) --> Marshall JMP MK.2 100watt Lead head --> 4x12 cabs. I'm running a mono signal. Everything sounds crystal clear at stage volume (our band is Loud too), effect spillover is beautiful. There is absolutey no tone coloration unless I program it to do so. I also own an old ART X-12 Midi foot controller which works 100% (expression pedal too) with the G-Major. I have easily been able to set up Midi modifications. I haven't had time to try Tap Tempo out yet, so no comment on that. Only thing I wish it had was looping and intelligent harmonizing. The pitch shift included though is very smooth and responsive just as advertised. Running full stereo for direct recording is crystal clear and very high quality if your using proper quality cables and a conditioned power supply. The manual has brief explanations of how everything works and is good if your expierenced with effects processors --> The G-Major is a breeze to dial in your effects very quickly. Otherwise it could seem kind of complicated for a beginner. The Factory Presets are there for demonstration/example and usually they are just programs the techs made to test out funcionality. So make your own... you will be amazed at the amount of control you have to tweak for perfection.

Not quite as versatile as some top end units, but there is nothing that even compares at 500 bucks.

    Great features.....IF ONLY THEY WORKED!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

    I know a lot of people are praising the G Major and it IS killer, but only when it works. There are so many problems that I feel TC Electronics don't recognize and deal with (Blank LCD screens, knobs not working, etc). I'm not the only one. Feel free to look up yahoo and check out launch groups yahoo in the G Major section --there are tons of people having problems with the G Major, but at the same time totally wish it would work because the effects ARE super clean. But do yourself a favor and do some research before you really commit to buying this. If it's too good to be true...

    Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

    This processor is made for an amp's effects loop. It has just the effects you need if you use your amp to get your distorted sounds. Really transparent and good quality sound.

    It's Just Ok

    By TeleLovin

    from Oklahoma

    Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

    I've been playing on this processor for nearly a year now. In my experience with multieffects units I definitely have to say that this sounds the best.The thing that definitely apealled to me was the idea of making large program changes (if you can get your rig set up correctly). This means i'd be able to switch from my main distortion tone, w/ a gate and compressor on, to a clean tone w/ reverb, delay, and a tiny hint of chorus in one tap. After a year, i've yet to achieve this.By itself though, i definitely do enjoy the sound of the effects. But in my opinion i think i'll stick with a few stomp boxes that are a little easier to navigate.Definitely not for the faint of heart, or those that are busy.

    Total Control/Totally Transparent

    By jl-RdGZr

    from West Coast

    Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

    I have had my G-Major for three years now and have had zero problems using it daily since I got it. I control it with a Behringer FCB and can literally make it dance. I use it to switch two of the four channels on my Mesa Quad Pre(the FCB switches the other two) before sending the signal to a stereo Marshall tube poweramp. I use it in the Mesa effects loop.Pure "Tube Tone" is very important to me and the effects of this unitare simply incredible. With the G-Major, I can get my rig to go from heavy saturated tube overdrive with a touch of reverb and delay to prestine clean with any ammount of chorus, reverb or delay with the touch of a single pedal. I did not find this unit hard at all to program and the manual is excellent as is the web-site.
