    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.
