GCX

Anyone have any experience with this yet? I love the Gain Changer and, at first glance, the GCX seems like a regular GC with super-adjustable tone controls.

So I'm now replacing the standard GC with the GCX as my favorite OD pedal. The midrange knob (as opposed to the toggle switch) is so much easier when matching pedal to amp, and the internal bass adjustment is a priceless addition (I use a higher output pickup so trimming off a bit of low end really cleans up my signal). Thank you very much David, Ronnie (who assembled my pedal beautifully) and the rest of the crew!

Thank you, we have really enjoyed making them, and our opinions of the GCX very much echoes yours!

I am loving (LOVING!) my GCX. The infinite tweakability of the Mids knob alone is worth the price of admission, just an amazing addition to the standard LTD format. I never got my hands on an unLimiTeD so this is a mind blower to me.

My Gain Changers are still permanently mounted on pedalboards that I go between, but my one-pedal on-the-go approach is pretty much all about the GCX at this point.

Awesome pedal David!

Yes I have to agree the CGX is one hellova pedal and if you stack two of them together it's truly awesome.
So many variation's of tone in the same vain. You go from light crunchy rhythm to lead really easy.
Great work David and Ronnie.
