    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.

      Great sound/processing quality

      By Dmann

      from Calgary, Canada

      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.

      awesome processor

      By Steve-evH.m

      from THE CANADA!!!!!

      Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

      it is a great processor. all the effects are clear, crisp and sound warm. the only complaint i do have is about the noise gate. while it does cut out most noise, i think they could have increased the dampening range to cut even more noise. whenever i use my engl screamer 50 on the heavy lead channel and put the lead knob at level 8, it lacks the response to cut out any noise. i'm looking for something that will make my sound tight and agressive. the dist. spills over. and for people who think that the g major can't pick up notes under Eb, just switch the tuner mode to bass and set the range at "fine". it's a little trick i learned... after 5 months of using the processor!!! all in all though, a good unit.

      Alright, not the best

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

      The G-major sounds great and has lots of features, but it's not reliable, I have had mine for years I haven't had the problem with it locking up that others have, but I have had a lot of issues with the knobs. The knobs are very breakable, two of them broke and I have been looking for a way to replace them for about a year. It costs more to have them replace the knobs than what the processor is worth. Now I just want to get rid of the thing.

      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.

      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.

      Major on the minor..

      By ROF1553

      from Zion, IL

      Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

      I purchased this unit about three months ago. Before I owned this I had a TC G-Sharp w/switch.The G-Major is definately more sterile sounding. The plethera of options is astonishing. Up to seven effects simotanously. Even with the ability to control the channels on your amp via midi.So, things I don't like...It's hard to program. What I mean is that there is an amazing since of control but it's to much at points. Like even when you read the explanation of what a patch does, it still comes across like there is something that overal limits the sound of the unit. It's hard to explain... but the G-sharp is far easier and warmer sounding to use.The effect range and option how ever are definetly better on the G-major. Never had a problem with buttons or hardware.The overal reason I bought the unit is because I was trying to consolodate rack spack and weight. Really couldn't tell you if I'm happy or not. Try it before you buy it...and then try it again.

      Comments about TC Electronic G Major Guitar Effects Processor:

      This processor looks and sounds great, but cant be trusted at all. My new g-major locked up after only a few hours worth of playing. Scanning the user forums, I see this is a common occurence. Ive been playing guitar for 20+ yrs, and have used many Fx processors. Stay away from the G-Major.
