1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Yeah, this looks good. The only question is how is the reverb going to sound.

    I work for TC, so I'm of course biased, but in my opinion G-Sharp is quite simply outstanding value for money...

    Am I missing something, or is this just a repackaged M300?-Eric

    No, differnent effects than a M-300. I *used* to work *with* TC and did reverb presets for the M-2000, 3000, 5000, 6000 etc. IMO their reverb algs are the best around barring convolution plug-in (a different kettle of fish).

    Only listening will be the test but I would guess they will be pretty good if past experience is any judge. Looks like a quality peice of gear for $349 list! Should sell for $290 street and it's a lot of kit for the $$.

    Now they just need to squeze it into a pedal....

    Wow this looks really cool...I'd also like it if they made it into a pedal as well, but still, looks like great value.

    does it do a full A>D conversion or does the dry signal remain analog?

    @ ccoker: full a>d conversion.

    Although there are obvious similarities, the G-Sharp is far from a repackaged M300. To name a few of the differences: The algorithms are different and are specifically tuned for guitar. There's also delay spillover and tap tempo from a pedal.

    We'll release an optional analog pedal specifically made for controlling the G-Sharp, which will make it (almost) like controlling a regular stopmbox.
