G-Major replacement options?
Hey guys -
I've got a G-Major that has been giving me some trouble... The problem is that I love the effects, especially some of the ones that aren't so common in other units (ie; vibrator, etc)
I've had a few bad instances with my unit locking up while at practice, thank god it hasn't happened live yet, but I'm now afraid to use it because of this. I got it in a trade deal last year and so it has no warranty that I know of.
I'm considering buying a new one to replace it but I'm a little scared of the reliability of them after reading MANY articles from others that had the same problems that I am having.
I'm using a Behringer FCB1010 footcontroller to control my preamp and then have the G-Major next in the Midi chain to also receive channel changes and such.
I'd like to know what other effects units would be able to give me the same flexibility (and quality - without costing thousands of dollars).
Keeping in mind that I'm going to need to have a unit that will do the following effects:
Tremolo, Vibrator, Flanger, Phaser, Chorus, Delay, Reverb, Harmonizer.
I know that because of the Harmonizer and Vibrator effects, that limits my choices, but there has to be something comparable to the G-Major that does these things, hell I'd even consider two different multi FX units if they would do what I need them to do.
I'm going to need to make a decision within the next week or two at the latest, so your timely input would be greatly appreciated!
