Any feedback (no pun) on the TC Electronic G system? I am trying to get more of Jerry's tone and i am looking for the right effects. I have a PRS hollowbody and a twin reverb.

HELP!!!

Hmmm, a hallowbody and a fender sounds more like Trey.

If you are looking for a Jerry tone, start by investigating his main effects that really define him:
Octave Divider
Mutron III
Phase 90 (or was it the 100)
Overdrive
Delay
etc...

Then check if the unit has these.
Then check what the unit modelled to get them.

I've got a POD XT Live and they show pics of which models they used when creating their stuff.

Sometime back I checked into the G Major and these was something I didn't like about it. That's it, the foot controller. Plus it lacks an Mutron III type effect and I didn't see an octave divider. Finally the routing of effects was too restrictive for the price, IMO.

Another option is the BOSS GT8 where that has better routing options and the octave divider it doesn't have a Mutron III but does have a tasty AutoWah, IIRC.

The XT Live doesn't have an octave divider persay so I'd steer clear of that if I were you.

For the price of a system you could get the core required pedals less the Mutron III but you could get the EH model that is similar - sorry I can't remember which model that was...

Hey man thank you.

What is a good place to buy these effects and what brands? Or does it matter?

If I had to get all of the pedals individually, what exactly would I need?

I just found this site and its great, I picked up the new book about the gear the Dead used, its very informative, but a bit over my head.

Again thanks.

Welcome here!

Brands matter as much as the effect.

Here is a great site by Dozin:
http://www.dozin.com/jers/rig.html
From there you see:
Mu-tron III
Mu-tron Octive Divider
MXR Phase 100
MXR Analog Delay
MXR Distortion +

Those are all vintage effects today. IF I were to go off of that, here are the equivelents I'd buy:
Mu-tron III === EH's Q-TRON
Mu-tron Octive Divider === BOSS's Octave Divider
MXR Phase 100 === I'd get this one
MXR Analog Delay === Any analog delay that you like
MXR Distortion + === Maybe a BOSS DS1 or Blues Driver or Zen Drive or anything you like

Then don't use your EQ :lol:

Couldn't resist. Likely culprits: bad cable or dirty jack.

sounds like a broken ground wire somewhere, OR depending on age a leaky capacitor.
