It would appear that we have reviews that are rating the GNX3 as the best thing that has come along. On the other hand, you have those that warn you of certain things and tell you to not buy it. I will write this review the best I know how, then you make your decision. First of all it is a complex pedal board and it is on the heavy side. However, it does have some great sounds on it. One of the effects is a bass guitar. This will make your six string guitar sound just like a bass. There are many other effects that are too many to mention. If you want something to play around with, create different sounds, your willing to take the time to learn it, the GNX3 will be on the top of your list. On the other hand. This is NOT what you want for playing gigs. I have had the experince of going steping on a pedal and press two pedals instead of one. When you do that you have changed so many settings and it is a b**** to get back on track while on stage. There is a delay time on the effect kicking in. I have had the best of both worlds. In my bag of tricks I had 12 individual stomp boxs anything from a noise gate to compression, I even had a great pedal board. Instead of me holding on to these, I sold them so I could convert over to the GNX3. HUGE MISTAKE and I can't do it over again. Life has taught me a great many things and I try to learn from it. When it comes down to it, sometimes we think we need something. In reality, we don't need it at all. Having lived for 55 years now, a vet of Vietnam. There was really no reason for me having 12 pedals. Do yourself a favor and go with the least ammount of pedals possible. Even better! Buy you a great amp with overdrive, high gain, etc. If you do this, you won't have to buy as many stomp boxs. In conclusion. The GNX3 is a lot of fun playing around with in the house. The GNX3 IS NOT what you want to take on stage. There it is. I have done the best I could in writing about this product. In the end, it is your decision.

Nice pedal for most work

By Jason-aplGw

from Portsmouth

I've had my GNX3 for 6 months. I always liked the sounds. Editing patches is not too bad with the sofware editor. Then one of the guys told me to add the supermodel basic. I was stunned. The real character of the GNX3 was evident with these custom amp models. My sounds are incredible through my Peavey rack stereo amp and two 2by12's. Take a look at control assigns and expressions and see how this works live. For me it's great and expressive. Built well. No doubt I'll buy the GNX4 since it has more features but for now this is the best I have ever owned. High points for Digi-tech and Supermodel developors. Great for guys like me.

Awesome Gain; Nice cleans

By SevenStrngShred

from East Windsor, NJ

See all my reviews

This is an overall good product for the money. It's got more features than you'll ever need. Most of them I don't even use but, it's good to have them incase I want to. Everyone is saying digitech has that "digital" sound; it does but, when you run it through a tube amp, it doesn't really have it. Except, for some effects. If you know how to tweak the tone just right, you'll get it sounding good - even through a solid state amp. Buy it at your local music store and give it a try, if you don't like it, return it !

A small recommendation

By D3nn1s

from NY

Ok, I'll admit, I'm only 17 and have less than a year of experience under my belt, but this pedal exceeded all the expectations I had. Prior to this I had used a friends RP50, and was expecting the same that had for the tones ( good variety, but tone was noticeably bad), but I was so wrong. some of the presets w/o any tweaking killed all the other sounds I had used prior to this. Haven't used it live, but it seems sturdy. I do question actually using it live though, although thats just personal opinion that the sound would be easier to control than this behemoth. In fact, the only reasons I could see someone not buying and enjoying this is the small pedals for live shows and the fact that some people do not have the patience to tweak forever. If you aren't a big fan of tweaking, check the digitech sound community, were 1100+ patch's from users can be added via correct cables. The one I tried so far for blink182 got PERFECT tone for there clean songs, with overdrive being very, very close. Definitely recommended to someone who wants options without killing the tone.

By Twin Fusion

If you are a songwriter, the GNX 3 is the magic that can propell you to the next level. You can do so much with it and the folks at Digitech hit a home run with this one. I have used it in live performances but it is really great to get you ready for the studio. You will NOT regret this purchase. Great Great product.

Amazing unit

By Shredder-TlEky

from Jackson, WY

See all my reviews

I LOVE this thing. It will do literally anything you want it to, and the possibilities are endless, making this thing a gem for twiddlers. ON THE OTHER HAND: it's pretty complex; the manual is over 80 pages, and you really need to know this thing to get full benefit of it. I'd say it isn't for the non-tech-weeny guitar-purist, who just wants to play. Expensive, but well worth it. Built like a rock.

Review

By Ispeakeththetruth

from Grand Island, New York

I bought my GNX3 about 3 years ago & really am happy with the sound shaping capability and use the digital recorder a lot. The unit is awesome from the perspective of its ability to produce audio tones. However, after time and lots of use, the foot switches went bad on me, one by one. At first, the failures were intermittent, then finally went completely. One day, I picked it up and heard something loose inside. It was past the warranty period so I opened the case to look inside and noticed that those flimsy little membrane switches were all that was situated under the mechanical footswitches. No wonder they go bad after a couple of years of stompin. Don't get me wrong, the sound and features are great. The hardware is lacking durable enough switches for this application. In my opinion, the push button switch mounted on a pc board under a mechanical footswitch that Digitech uses in the GNX3 ain't what I would call quality engineering and will eventually fail on your unit also. Digitech needs to get their act together and build a more durable product. I have not tried Line6 or Boss or any others but I sure hope they are not using the same crap in for their switches. Other than this complaint, I like the unit. Got myself really embarassed on stage when the first switch failed on me during performance. This is not something you want to experience. My last comment, for what you pay for the unit, you deserve much higher quality and durable moving parts engineered into this wonderful unit. Flimsy push button switches mounted on a pc board on the receiving end of a stomp foot pedal don't get it in my book.

I have had my pedal for almost a year now and i love it. It has many effects that i didn't even know exist.One problem, though. My Chorus/Mod switch is a little hard to turn on and off. Other than that, it's great!

Best of the Best

By Guitarro

See all my reviews

I just bought this last week and I am truly amazed at it's quality and ease of use!!! There are tons of presets that you can use and the you can edit and warp them to your heart's content! The recording option in and of itself is worth the price as a practice tool. With the price of the GNX4 being quite a bit higher than this model, I don't see why you wouldn't buy the GNX3!!!WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

Noisey

By Methany Blues

from Fort Wayne, IN

See all my reviews

I found this unit to be very noisey. The output stage was not clean and all the presets are cranked at the output stage. Dropping the output gain down to 10-12 oclock it seemed ok but I was very dissappointed and almost wondered if the one I had was defective. The computer software for modifying sounds worked well and made it easy to program and the recorder is a great feature but I was overall very dissappointed. I used to love Digitech stuff, I wonder what happened with this one.

NOT FOR LIVE USE

By Rock2Oldies

from Taylor, MI

See all my reviews

First of all this is a great pedal to use if your in my situation. I am retired, still rocking but over the hill, little too old for a band (55), didn't want to play alone. I have at least 12 pedals that are mounted in the SKB pedal box. That is way too many pedals to leave laying around my music room. I bought the GNX3 even though I had the money for the GNX4. Too me, there wasn't enough difference to buy the 4. I run this into a JamMan loop station with a 1GB card. This gives me a 3.5 hour recording time the I use the USB cable on the JamMan and upload it to my computer. I just bought a Boss BR-1200 multi didgital recorder with 12 tracks. I haven't taken it out of the box yet. The GNX3 is great for recording or playing in the garage. However, the pedals are too close together on the GNX3 to use on stage. I do play with a blues and classic rock band from time to time. When I do that I take my single pedals.

Great product, confusing manual.

By Tele lover.

from Chicago suburbs

See all my reviews

The presets are a great starting point, but I don't use any of them the way they come from the factory. The drum machine is very basic so don't think about using it for anything other than a metronone while recording. The manual is very long but it doesn't even mention the fact that you must use CD quality to use some features (Jam Man, looper). I found out reading a customer review at the Digitech websight (I recomend going there for tips). Very large unit if your going to haul it around too. The memory chips it uses are obsolete but can still be found. 128 meg max though. I bought two at office max.

What a great toy! I can't comment on its stageworthiness, but as a home practice tool, it's awesome. Looping and recording is a breeze. For all those who complain about how hard it is to use, I have one comment. Read the manual!

Great effects, but distortion...ehh...

By Goochy-D4V.b

from Dirty South Louisiana

See all my reviews

The effects on this beast are amazing saving you a bunch of money on single-effect pedals and the expression pedal and control button expand your playablilty even more but the distortions aren't that great. Don't get me wrong, this pedal is worth buying, but if you are really picky about distortion i suggest buying another dist. pedal or just using what your amp has. Great pedal though. I highly suggest getting this.
