In the northern part of Italy, a tech wizard carries out modifications and designs complete guitar effects systems for some of the best guitar players in Europe that center around the TC Electronic G-System. His name is Massimo Mantovani, and one of his most popular mods is a G-System input buffer tweak.
Coincidentally, ProGuitarShop in the US, who has previously been working together with TC Electronic on creating custom PGS TonePrints, enquired if it would be possible to develop an improved version of G-System. The link to Mantovani was obvious.
Therefore, TC Electronic and ProGuitarShop set out to collaborate with Mantovani to develop the ultimate input buffer modification. By changing the analog input design as well as a number of components, a super transparent tone that offers loads of punch and a snappier response has been created for all guitarists – and their crowds – to enjoy.
Further, the iB Modification has been implemented on exclusive, custom-run versions of both the G-System multi effects board and the Nova Delay pedal. Both units are genuine lookers! G-System iB Modified will come in a mean-looking black finish that will cause heads to spin on stages everywhere. The new, red Nova Delay iB Modified will add class, style and superior delay processing to any pedal board.
