Jetter GS3 review

  • £199
The GS3 has two channels and plenty of controls.

MusicRadar Verdict

Three levels of dirt in a single pedal with excellent onstage switching options.

Pros

  • +

    Versatile switching. Two overdrives in one housing. Wide range of tones.

Cons

  • -

    The cut knob is a bit fiddly.

Like its sister pedal, the Jetdrive, the GS3 has two channels that can be used independently or cascaded, with each one having a unique voice and gain structure.

More flexibility is provided by a third footswitch that operates an overall bypass regardless of the on/off status of the channels. Each channel is capable of producing usefully different sounds.

"With two channels cascaded there's a huge palette of full-bodied overdrive available."

Both function nicely as clean boosts and, while channel one features the milder overdrive and a rear-panel 'cut' knob that controls presence, channel two is higher gain and is voiced not unlike a Marshall 'Plexi'.

With two channels cascaded there's a huge palette of full-bodied overdrive available.
