    Except these things :
    Extra Screen
    9 modulation same time instead of 6
    Tube Booster

    Is it worth the extra ? 180$ vs 320$

    is the tube booster that useful ? It works with the headphones right ? But not with usb ?

    Is is worth twice the price ?

    Correct. The tube boost is good if you need it; G3 users will likely have a fuller pedalboard than G5 users, and be able to add boost/warmth using another box.

    IMO, the G3 is the poorly-priced model, now that they've bracketed it with the MS (multistomp single) and the G3x. Either of those, or the G5, is a better value for my tastes. The G3 just fits tight pedalboards better. All 4 are very well designed, which can certainly make for a tricky decision!

    Oh, and your pricing looks a bit off. G3 is currently going for $170, G3x for $200, G5 for $300.

    Let me get proper pricings :p
    In canada the exact pricings are

    G3 169.99$
    G3X 209.99$
    G5 319.99$

    I do already have a Wah. My amp is a peavey xxl 212.
    Is the pedal worth it for the other effects ? (Never had a multi-fx before)

    Mostly be using it for headphone/recording use. Maybe in the effects loop of my amp if it sounds right.

    Is this achievable with the 6 slots on the G3 ?

    I never used either software so it doesnt help me. I never used a DAW.

    Are the extra effects worth it ?

    To me, no.
    To you, maybe.
    You have to figure that out for yourself.
