TC G-Major vs Rocktron Replifex
I'm looking at one of these processors to go with a Soldano preamp that I just picked up. Both of these have channel switching jacks so I can change channels with presets instead of having to hit another switch, cool feature, don't know why more effects don't have it, even the new Rocktron Xpression doesn't, and it is the replacement for the Replifex, go figure.
Both are supposed to be great sounding units, the Rocktron has a built in Speaker Sim, which is cool, the TC is probably a little more transparent. The biggest complaint that I have heard about the G-Major is the cheap feel and reliability issues. Rocktron stuff always seems rock solid and lasts forever, I have a bunch of it right now.
Do any of you guys use a G-Major, and if so, have you had any problems with it? I'm leaning toward a Replifex if I can find one, unless you guys convince me otherwise, but they haven't been made in a few years. I know where a used G-Major is that I can probably get pretty cheap, but again, if reliability is an issue, it's not worth it.
