Reliability issues

09.10.2016
The device itself has a lot of features, which make it a really reasonable choice for its price. I don't think you can find more features for less than 400 euros.

The manual is not so good though, and you are going to need the instructions, as the programming is not so self-explanatory. I had to search in some forums to find out how some things work.

Another good thing that I should say is that all in all, the system seems robust and "built as a tank". BUT a really frustrating problem makes me NOT to recommend it:

I bought this instead of the GSC-3 model not because it was cheaper, but because I thought that the soft switches would be more reliable. Well, apparently I was wrong.

The first one arrived faulty due to some issues with the switches. Thomann of course replaced it and the second one started having similar issues after about 3 months, with a really moderate use.

Of course Thomann has nothing to do with this, their customer service is as always perfect. I don't know if there is a general problem with this type of switches or I was the unlucky one. But I think it's the first one, the switches.

I would highly recommend that you prefer the GSC-3 to this. They have exactly the same features, but the GSC-3 might be more reliable. Actually, 2 friends of mine use it for several years, with no problems at all.

Good features, bad build quality

17.06.2016
I bought this controller because the other guitar player of my band had one and it had all the features that I needed at the time.

The unit I received seemed well built and packaged, even though the "manual" that came with it was in Polish.

After plugging in the unit to my rig and playing one or two songs with my band I started to notice some strange behavior. Button number one would flicker and sometimes turn off. I could reproduce the problem just by telling the drummer to kick the bass drum. I think my unit was defective and I sent it back to Thomann for repair one month ago. I'm still waiting for the repaired item, which I will probably sell or return.

Given this issue and the fact that this is not a particularly cheap product (at least for me) I do not recommend it to other clients.
