    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.

    Features
    • 8 effect modules and 54 effect types
    • 80 patches (40 user defined and 40 preset patches) including 9 types of presets that replicate legendary rock sounds and 21 types of new artist patches

      I play several kinds of guitars through several different amps, as well as direct in for recording or through the PA for casual live stuff like open mics. This little box is very useful for all those situations.

      I play acoustic and solid-body electric, mostly folk, Americana, and jangle style. My favorite setup is a low- to medium-wattage triode tube amp with spring reverb through a 1x12 cabinet, either clean or cranked just enough to get some sparkle and shimmer on it. But what with one thing and another, my ideal setup isn't always the most practical or available. So I'm always looking for ways to make small tube and solid state combos work. Sometimes, I even play through a bass combo. It's also nice to skip the whole amp and mic thing and go DI sometimes.

      So I've owned and played with a large number of little DI boxes, preamps, recording amps, reverb pedals, and so on, including the original Zoom 9002 over 20 years ago, as well as a Hughes & Kettner Blues Master and a Johnson J Station. The Zoom G1N works about as well as any of them, and at an incredibly cheap price, and it comes in a convenient stomp box format that takes batteries or the included AC adapter. Every guitar player needs something like this, and as far as I know, the Digitech RP series is the only competition at this price. You can A/B them and pick one.

      The presets sound tasteless to me, but maybe they represent current trends. I'm not the one to ask about that or about metal or hard rock or heavy distortion, or really any kind of overprocessed guitar sound.

      So right away, I'm programming this thing. The spinny knobs make it much easier than older Zoom boxes like the 504. I generally use the spring reverb setting and mess with the level and decay time until it sounds like an amp. Sometimes I put a bit of compression on, and I also use the 3-band EQ, but sparingly. It all works as it should. So do the chorus and delay modules, but I don't use them habitually.

      I have an acoustic-electric with a piezo that I put through the Clean drive mode and the Combo amp model. I also run a Strat-like solid body through a couple of settings. One is the Acoustic Simulator drive model, which is nice on the neck pickup or neck + middle, and although it doesn't turn the Strat into an acoustic guitar, it sounds nice in its own right, and yes, acoustic-ish. Better actually than some thinline acoustic-electrics like the Stratacoustic. The other setting I use for the Strat is the Twin drive (whatever they call it) with just enough gain to sparkle, into the Bright Combo amp model. Sounds kinda Twinish in character, even DI or through a cheap amp, and what's more, it breaks up smoothly, dynamically, and musically, much like a real amp.

      I've played with some of the other drive models on this thing, and they all behave in impressively touch-responsive fashion, considering that they are completely fake!

      I have also tried the pitch shifter to add an octave-up shift for a simulated 12-string effect. On the bridge pickup, it gives you a nice facsimile of a Byrds jangle while costing just a touch less than a Ric 12-string.

      You can split the headphone out into L and R channels and run it stereo into the board for a big spacious sound.

      The cool thing is that the same settings sound nice through very different amps and even direct into a board with very minimal tweaking at the amp or board. It's hard to believe, but I'm successfully using the same preamp with the same settings into small practice amps (both tube and SS), a bass combo, a nice tube head, and DI. Very versatile, very low-fuss.

      It'd be nice if it had variable input impedance or different input levels and could be operated on phantom power, but then it wouldn't cost what it does. It's more of a consumer-level product than pro gear, but wow, is it useful, and talk about bang for buck. Unless you've already got nicer gear coming out of your ears, you need one of these. Five stars because of versatility and quality for the low price.

        Comments about Zoom G1N Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

        I bought this unit to use as an effects insert on a vocal channel so that I could keep my pedalboard intact, seems that every time me and my jam buddies get together my stompboxs get spread all out all over the place, considering buying another one of these as it seems to be very versatile. As a guitar effect it has some really great features, while the sound may not be "pro quality" its is more than adequate for my use, and the price is quite a bargain.

          Comments about Zoom G1N Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

          If you're like me you have little money to spend on a tube amp head and professional grade equipment. I run a cheap Kusom solid state amp through a 4x10 Raven cab with epiphone and kramer guitars. The second I plugged in the ZOOM G1n it nearly blew my face off from the raw power and volume I got. I use it mainly for the presets and tuner but there are so many patches to choose from that kick butt. I like MR Scary, Queen and Thrash presets the best but the clean tones are really well done; much better than Delta Labs pedal. I can't really see me playing anything else as a rig in the near future. I can trust this thing not to break and the pedals are sturdy to keep on pushing with your foot and the LED is extremely easy to read. It is a complicated little pedal once you get into your own work on patches.

            Just got this a couple of weeks ago. Majority of effects sounded similar. Only a couple of amp models sounded okay. The presets were too extreme. It does take a little time to set up your own personal settings, the manual sucks!! But once you do, it's a breeze to get it going. For the money it's worth every penny. Great to have sitting on the coffee table to plug into with some good headphones for silent apartment practicing!!

            Comments about Zoom G1N Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

            I love Zoom products and own the older 501 bass effects pedal, so I got this one for guitar. It has an impressive set of effects but there are two problems. The pre-set patches (40) you can't change permanently are 80% heavy distortion and don't even use the full array of available effects. The second problem is the manual, which is contradictory and has vague descriptions of certain patches and effects. You DO have 40 patches you can custom program and save, and a big assortment of effects but I wish Zoom (are you listening?) had allowed you to overwrite any or all of the 40 pre-set patches (like they do on older models) because so many are lame. Then you could have the choice of keeping some or all of the pre-set patches or dumping them all and getting 80 patches of your own. They used up half the memory of this cool box with mostly bad, unusable patches you can't permanently change. Still, it's a cool pedal and a decent value for the price.

              Comments about Zoom G1N Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

              I recently bought a Zoom G1N after my 25+ year old Ibanez pedalboard finally gave up. I am very pleased with the G1N. There is a wide selection of effects available, and each one is highly customizable. I play a variety of blues, classic rock, bluegrass and country on a Telecaster, so what I need are bright clean sounds as well as a series of increasingly dirty overdriven sounds. The G1N does an excellent job for me. It is easy to set up a patch and fine tune it to your liking; however, read the manual first to save yourself some time. One odd thing - the volume settings seem to have been assigned at random, with huge differences between one patch and the next. This is easy to fix, but is something you should be aware of before plugging in at normal volume. This is just a minor inconvenience, though, overall the G1N is an outstanding value. I would highly recommend it.

                i have owned digitech and boss pedals before. but this gives me (in my opinion) better tones and less stress on my wallet. good for seasoned vets and up and comers. i think im gonna stick with zoom products for my guitar from now on.
                it has a very good amount of effects to get you by. some of the best distortion ive ever used.
                it is plastic so you cant stomp it too hard. but as long as you take care of it it is perfectly fine
