I Jsut oredered a BR2000 rack tuner, and was wondering if anyone had any exp. with it? Also was wondering if the g-Sharp by T.C. was any good, and what other simple, in-expensive rack gear would be good for someone trying to find their OWN sound, Im looking for a multi processor that is ok for my FX loop but also isnt gonna ruin my tone


Im currently writing alot of music, in the fuel/velvet reveolver/gnr/later sum41 vein any help?

Don't have any experience with the tuner, but it's a tuner, so there really isn't much to say about it other than hopefully it's accurate.

As for the processor, the G-Sharp is great for a cheap processor. It only does the major effects, none of the fancy stuff. I'm afraid the effects might be a little limited, but they work. Hopefully TC Electonics used the same DACs that are in the higher end processors, but you never know. Is there a dealer nearby where you can try one out?

The biggest problem people had with the G major is that the rotary knob would break... a lot. I assume the G sharp will have this problem aswell, so check out some reviews (when looking at reviews, skip over all the positive reviews, and only look at the negative ones).

The Rocktron processors leave your dry tone analog, which would be my choice if your amp doesn't have a parrallel loop.

It's a Buffered Parrallel. I belive, lemme go check.


Well everyone says its buffered but no one says if its series(probably the case) or parrallel...

If it's got a knob to adjust the mix of dry to wet signal it's parrallel, if not it's series. The reason this matters, is if you have a parrallel fx loop, you can set the effect system to kill dry mode, and adjust the mix on the amp. The problem here is you lose versatility.

Well the difference is with a parrallel loop, your tone is split between dry, and wet. The dry tone bypasses the effects loop, and the wet tone goes through the effects loop. They are then mixed at the end. In a series loop, you don't have the dry tone, everything goes through the effects loop. This means that you really don't want to use digital effects, as they will turn your whole tone into the digital realm, then bring it back, which results in loss (look here for more explanation on why you lose tone).

In this case, I'd advise buying one of the Rocktron multieffects, as they don't convert all of your tone into digital, just the bit that's going to have the effects applied (though I'm not sure if all of the models have an analog dry, so check that out).
