Using a TC Electronic GMajor with a bass rig???

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Sgtthump, Apr 14, 2005.


  1. I have this processor for my guitar rig, but never really thought about using it for my bass rig. Is anyone doing this? Heck, I was putting pedals together in my mind for my bass pedalboard, but I should probably just use my GMajor! DUH!!!

    I could run it through the effects loop on my Ampeg B2R and I assume it would work well (I'll try it tonight). Just looking for any feedback.

    Also, I know a compressor should normally go between the guitar and the amps input jack, but has anyone used a compressor in the loop for bass guitar? If so, I can just use the compressor on my GMajor. My right hand plucking technique isn't quite up to snuff yet and I'd like to even out my attack a little with a compressor.

    Regarding the G-Major - go for it. Some effects sound better in a more expensive multi FX, or as pedals, but it's a nice all-round machine with decent FX-quality. :)

    i always keep my dbx 163x cmpressor in my effects loop. it sounds better to me that way because everything i do before the compressor is kept in 'proportion' to the sound i'm working off of, and the compression is just to sort of 'even out' the dynamics of my sound and help it find that groove in teh overall band sound

  5. Sorry know this is age old, how did it go with the effects loop on the ampeg, any issues with levels or with the sound of it ?
