G3

A new standard for effects pedal lovers seeking the ultimate control and tonal transparency.

G3 and G3 Atom mark a new standard in pedalboard effects control. Built on the legacy of our award winning G2, G3 delivers the ultimate in signal path purity with possibilities never before seen in a pedalboard switcher.

Hear your effects as they were designed to sound, unencumbered by compromises inherent in a standard pedalboard setup.

We designed G3 from the ground up, obsessively testing and retesting every aspect of its design to ensure we delivered the most robust, fully featured, tonally transparent switching system in the world.

G3 is an expression of our passion. We compromised on nothing.

WHY G3?

Since the launch of G2 in 2013, we have never stopped dreaming about what would be next. The answer to that is G3.

Unparalleled signal path flexibility, MIDI control and intuitive programming, G3 is the new standard in professional effects pedalboard control. With built-in Bluetooth enabling you to connect to the G3 iOS app you have software updates, system backups and song list editing at your fingertips. 

We have also built the new G3 Extension Kit and Hub, so you can have your rig offstage, controlled by your tech if needed, for the ultimate pro touring rig. For all the things that G3 does, we've never forgotten the most important thing and that's what G3 doesn't do...

G3 will not load or colour your guitar tone, letting you hear your effects and amps as they were designed to sound.
