It seems like the most obvious thing in the world, but of course, if you have 99 banks with up to 28 presets per bank, you’re going to want screen next to the footswitches!
Introducing G3S, its G3 built with screens next to each footswitch… finally!
Our G3 range delivers a new standard for effects pedal lovers seeking the ultimate control and tonal transparency. G3S and AtomS delivers the icing on the cake.
Built on the legacy of our award winning G2, the G3 range 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.
Since the launch of our G2 Pedalboard Switcher in 2013 we’ve never stopped dreaming about what would be next. 2020 saw the evolution of our G switching system - the mighty G3 and G3 Atom with unparalleled signal path flexibility, MIDI control, and intuitive programming.
To this day G3 sets the standard for professional effects pedalboard control, allowing you to concentrate on the important thing - playing.
We’ve continued to bring new features to G3 such as; Hi-Def Isolated Output (so no colouration through traditional transformers), as well as updated software including MIDI Sequencer, extra stompbox modes, Expression Pedal Inputs, and MIDI commands when turning presets on and off.
But there's one feature we've always wanted to add... something to help ease the pressure of remembering or manually labelling... a digital display for EACH footswitch.
The G3S features 12 additional dedicated footswitch screens alongside the Main G3 screen, in total providing preset labels for all 14 switches.
These OLED displays are designed to be visible in any light and on even the darkest of stages - all without drawing any more current away from your power supply, and each display featuring up to five characters.
With its built-in Bluetooth you can connect to our new G3 Web Editor, or via the G3 iOS app to edit and label your 99 banks of Presets, update software, run system backups, and edit your song lists with ease.
We have also built the new G3 Extension Kit, 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.

If Wet/Dry and parallel signals are your thing, you can do it all in G3 without the need for any external devices. Send different effects to different outputs, even phase correct your parallel signals
G3 EXTENSION KIT
G3 EXTENSION KIT
The new G3 Extension Kit enables you to have your pedalboard behind your amplifier or even in a rack offstage while being controlled by a floor-controller on stage.
If you need a clean stage for your production this is a no-brainer.
The G3 Extension Kit enables you to have your pedalboard behind your amplifier or even in a rack offstage while being controlled by a floor-controller on stage connected with a simple 7-pin DIN cable.
