* PRE ORDER* The GigRig G3 Advanced Guitar Effect Switching System

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

G3 marks 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. We compromised on nothing.

G3 is an expression of our passion to make something the best it can possibly be.

    G3 is rock solid and super easy to use

    Posted by Scott Anderson on Jan 21st 2021

    G3 is my first experience with the GigRig products. I have been a fan since G2 first came out, but didn't put the effort in to save for it until the G3 came along with all the updates that G2 needed. It is very solid and well built. I expect it to handle all kinds of foot stomping abuse. The interface is super simple and I love that it saves all settings automatically. The routing capabilities and midi are great. Absolutely necessary and much appreciated is the Phase control for output 2. You can't do two amps mono or stereo without it (you could get away with wet/dry without it). Thanks to Daniel and the team for making such an incredible product. Time to order some Isolators and Distributors!

    Phenomenal system

    Posted by Thomas Gagnon on Jan 4th 2021

    This being my first experience with a loop switcher I can only say that the G3 provides quite the welcome.

    The presets are extremely easy to set, the UI is very intuitive, all this on top of a machine that functions absolutely perfectly right out of the box. The crew working support is prompt and professional and they were quite proactive on the Facebook group in letting everyone know of possible issues and how to fix them before they caused trouble.

    I would have absolutely no reservations in recommending this to any fellow guitarist and pedal aficionado.
