Red Hot! - G-System Limited

When we released G-System, we changed the world of guitar effects forever. G-System is the first guitar system to offer a combination of the very highest quality effects, amp switching, full floor control and four built-in analog FX loops that give you the ability to integrate and control your existing pedals in the set-up.

Put simply, G-System offers you the very best in effects, 'hands-on' floor control and full system integration, so it's little wonder that so many guitarists the world over have fully embraced the G-System philosophy.

To celebrate this success, we have just unleashed G-System Limited, a collector's edition that looks every bit as hot as it sounds. In fact, we'd go as far as to say that the best just got a whole lot better.

 

As you can see, G-System Limited comes housed in a stunning red anodized case - but don't think this is just about the cosmetics. Sure, G-System Limited looks red hot, but we've also turned up the heat with what's under that hood.

With a completely redesigned analog circuit, G-System Limited provides the purest and most uncolored signal path yet. We've also increased the number of effects on offer with several new additions in response to your feedback. First up - and by very popular demand - we've added Univibe for that Hendrix 'Machine Gun' style phase-shifting effect. There's also an ultra-fat Doubler to help you get that classic doubling effect so prevalent in '80s and '90s Rock and Metal.

G-System Limited also sports brand new Reverbs, including more realistic Room and Spring Reverbs. Other features include a new KillDry option that lets you use G-System in a parallel effects loop or even with a line mixer. Finally, we've crammed an extra 100 incredible new presets in there that will provide a wealth of inspiration, no matter what kind of music you play.

G-System Limited is the ultimate, go-to effects system - and with an exclusive run of only 300 you need to grab one while you can!

It’s been a while since a piece of gear literally made my heart beat faster. The G-System sets a new standard for professional level guitar effects.

If you think we’re going to tell you that the G-System Limited sounds as hot as it looks, you’re absolutely right. The G-System (either version) is one of the best sounding pieces of guitar equipment that has ever been available to guitarists.

With the G-System under your feet, you may never want for another effects processor and you’ll finally be able to incorporate all your favorite stomp pedals into one neat tidy incredible-looking and great-sounding rig.

Even after 3 years I’m not tired of the sounds at all. It’s still exciting to kick a chorus in. “Exciting” isn’t a feeling that we get too much with gear these days.

Backstage Pass - All Access

Overwhelming Sounds, overwhelming options

G-System does so much so well, it can be a bit intimidating. But essentially, G-System is the best thing you could do for your playing, sounds and performance and its menus and controls are intuitive and user-friendly.

Filter section

A wide selection of touch– and manually controlled filters from Wah to Formant style sounds and back.

Compression

Tight control of dynamics, ranging from a classic squashy compressor to more transparent, open dynamics control.

Tuner

Full chromatic tuner at your service.

Modulation

It’s the famous TC chorus, flangers, phasers, trems, vibrato in glorious quality.

Pitch

Add some wider imaging to your soundscapes, or go all out with whammys, octavers and even 2-part intelligent harmony.

Delay

Delay is TC’s turf and all the classic 2290 sounds including dynamic delay can be found here. We added a couple of reverse delays and warbly tape delays and gorgeous tape echoes.

Reverb

Reverb is synonymous with TC and we’ve included all our famous industry-defining hall, plate, room and spring algorithms and tuned them specifically for guitar.

Can you hear me now?

G-System has a boost button that allows you to add up to 10 dB of clean boost. Great for boosting solos or highlighting parts.

Pre-set for awesome

G-System has a ton of features and it’s factory presets cover a wide range of sounds and needs. But the real fun starts in building things from the ground up with G-System as the center of your rig. You can build presets to sound the control your other gear exactly as you see fit.

Custom layout

The whole idea behind G-System is being the perfect effects processor ... and what’s more perfect than one devised by you? A custom layout sticker allows you to rename knobs and the powerful software allows you to basically assign whatever you want to any button so you end up with exactly what you want, combined with TC effects.

Twist it, baby

G-System uses rotary encoders to scroll through menus and change parameters. A solution thats simple, elegant and incredibly roadworthy - and we’ve made sure that every important parameter is always instantly available.

A change is gon’ come

One of G-System’s best features is that you can make small adjustments like turning effects on or off, but also radical changes like switching effects, amp channels, EQ settings and whatever else you want to program in there - all at the press of a button. We’re talking unparalleled levels of control here.

A stunning display of Display

G-System’s display is neat and tidy and provides you with the essential info at all times, be it the pitch of your guitar, effect type or preset name, it’s all right there in maximum readability.

Is it in yet?

G-System’s guitar input is fantastic. Massimo Mantovano specifically tweaked G-System’s input buffer to deliver the most pristine and cleanest tone out there. The result? Super clean tone with loads of ‘snap’ and great response.

Express yourself at any volume

G-System allows you to control its parameters via inputs for expression- and volume pedals. Whether you want to do crazy whammy pitch bends, subtle changes to the delay mix or atmospheric volume swells, G-System is up for it.

9V DC outputs

Yeah, we noticed most guitarists like using their own overdrive– and distortion pedals, so we added 4 outputs where your coveted vintage babies can draw power. Oh, we won’t get mad if you wanna use another type of pedal either.

USB it to me, baby!

G-System has a USB port. We know that might sound a bit ‘meh’, but we’re doing tons of cool updates to the software and presets and make them available for zilch. Not so jaded now, huh?!

MIDI

G-System is MIDI enabled, allowing you to control MIDI-enabled amps and external effect units, sync delay tempos etc.

Wide range rock

G-System supports stereo out for the more adventurous guitarists out there. You can now create super wide soundscapes or switch between amps different tones - and of course that’s programmable per preset.

The fifth element

Besides the 4 loops mentioned earlier, there is a 5th loop designed specifically for pre-amp insertion. This allows you to have your effects in the right place in the signal chain: filters and compression before your distortion and the pitch, modulation, delay and reverb effects after.

Noise Gate

Clamping down with precision and flair, this gate is more than up for anything you throw at it.

Check out the brain on G!

G-system’s brain is a 19” inch rack unit mounted under the pedalboard and the cool part is that you can put it in a rack if you are so inclined. Just one ethernet cable is all G-System needs to keep both power and communications smooth and flawless.
