Tube amp modeling, 54 studio effects, and more.

Since introducing the 505 pedal in 1996, Zoom compact multi-effect processors have been highly acclaimed by guitarists all over the world. Representing the next standard for expressive tone in any style, Zoom is pleased to introduce the G1N.

All-New Drive Sounds
The first thing you notice with the G1N is its totally new drive sounds that were developed using the state-of-the-art ZFX modeling technology. Featuring 15 amp and stomp-box models that faithfully replicate every detail of the classics, from gain settings to harmonic character, the G1N delivers natural expression from nuanced playing to total bone-sizzling shreds. And the new, original amp models designed especially by Zoom for the G1N will amaze.

Easy Operation
It's never been easier to edit effects. Simply select the effect module with the selector knob then edit the value with the value knob. That's all there is to it. You can easily design your own tones to suit to your music. Dedicated buttons for saving patches, a bank switcher and integrated rhythm patterns make fine-tuning your sounds a breeze. A chromatic tuner is available simply by stepping on the two pedal buttons simultaneously. And with bright LED indicators, you'll get easy operation even on a dark stage.

Xtreme Artist Patches
The G1N has 9 types of presets that simulate the sounds of 'Rock Legends' like Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and many more. Plus, there are 21 types of the artist patches designed by amazing guitar heroes like Michael Amott, Kiko Loureiro, Richie Kotzen, Rob Caggiano, Mike Stone and Matt Bachand, so you can use these professionally designed guitar sounds in your music. Also, there are 10 types of presets for any style of guitar playing such as power chords, arpeggio, lead, cutting and much more. You can even save 40 patches you create in the G1N user memory.

Tube Amp Modeling
Replicating the high frequency overtones created by the distortion effect of tube amplifiers is made possible by Zoom's original 32-bit, ZFX-3 processor. This allows the frequency response for the G1N to extend to an amazing 20 Hz thru 40 kHz with 96 kHz sampling rates. You get the rich harmonics of distortion specific to various types of tube amps, made possible with 24-bit A/D/A conversion and the processing power that only Zoom digital modeling technology can reproduce.

54 Studio quality effects
A total of eight modules provide 54 effect types ranging from 'must-have' historic sounds of DynaComp, Vox Wah, Crybaby Wah, to Harmonized Pitch Shifter to let you play along in key, long delay and echo settings of up to 5 seconds, and many more. A multitude of high-performance choices opens up totally new creative possibilities.

Drum machine with PCM sound sources
Realistic drum sounds derived from PCM sources are arranged in a variety of rhythm patterns for different musical genres. The 40 rhythm variations include the steady 8-beat of Rock and Pop, funky 16-beat, a "Jazzy" 4-beat, some great shuffle for Blues sessions, and many more choices. Rhythm training is a cinch, and tap input allows you to specify the tempo easily.

Comments about Zoom G1N Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I just returned my G1N as it was defective; it would stop working and produce a loud buzz (and vice versa) intermittently. I knew what the problem was - a weak internal connection on the input - as I own two earlier models which both developed the same problem. The big difference is the earlier Zooms worked fine for years before they started messing up. While not happy that the earlier Zooms didn't last as long as they should under light use (I am not a gigging musician), their product is otherwise excellent. So I checked reviews of the G1N, found no mention of input failure and figured Zoom must have corrected the problem.
Apparently not!
I actually feel lucky - because it failed right away, I am able to switch brands (Digitech) in the hope of getting better reliability.
I should note that Music123 was very courteous and accomodating and they paid for return shipment.
But I won't buy Zoom again!

Much Better Than Some Of The Overrated Digitech RP Pedals !!!!


from Woonsocket, R.I.

Ask me a question

Comments about Zoom G1N Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

I got this a few weeks ago, when I traded in a Digitech RP-70 that I had bought a couple of weeks earlier, for this instead. I had heard so much about it and decided to take a chance and was glad that I did. The quality of the amp models alone, are worth the price tag IMO. This thing has a frigging Deezel which is one of the best sounding boutique amps for chrissakes and aren't exactly pocket change. Plus you get 2 Vintage Marshall tones to choose from, along with many other classic amp models, along with a Rat pedal and many other great sounding effects. The Acoustic guitar simulator on this, along with the built in tuner are the best that I have ever used on any effects processor. Of course, you do have to tweak the EQ to your liking in order to get whatever tone you like, but it's worth it, and the preprogrammed presets are nothing to sneeze at either. I've already used this with my band at several gigs and it has more than held it's own on stage. If you're on a low budget and are looking to enchance your sound, look no further.

Zoom G1N works for me


from Undisclosed

Comments about Zoom G1N Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

All I wanted was a delay pedal, but didn't want to spend the bucks. I figured for the price, surely this unit could give me that. Well, it gave me delay and a whole lot more usable effects Easy to use. Sounds better than a Digitec RP that I had. I put some rechargeable batteries in it. If they go dead, it has the power supply also. I like it.
