OVERVIEW

75 popular guitar effects and 65 built-in rhythm accompaniment patterns in one convenient pedal.

Zoom's G1on offers 75 guitar effects, including a variety of distortion, compression, modulation, delay, reverb and amp models. The G1Xon offers an additional 5 pedal-controlled effects.

Up to 5 effects can be used simultaneously, chained together any way you like. In addition, there are 68 built-in rhythm accompaniment patterns, and you can connect headphones to the output jack (as well as portable music players to the auxiliary input jack) for silent practice sessions. There's an onboard chromatic tuner that supports all standard guitar tunings, including open and drop tunings, and a Looper feature that enables you to record up to 30 seconds of CD-quality audio. Loop length can be set either manually or to a preset number of quarter notes (up to 64 beats), and you can loop to any rhythm pattern, with automatic quantization that ensures seamless start and end times. Programming is simple and straightforward, thanks to a streamlined user interface and the large backlit LCD screen.

Advanced features such as Copy and Swap make it easy to organize your patches for live performance. An Auto Save function ensures that your edits are stored automatically, and a Pre Select feature allows you to scroll through patches silently while keeping the current patch operational.

Dozens of different ways to make you a guitar hero
Dynamics / Filter
Eleven different ways to shape and control your sound with compressors, noise gates, filters, equalizers and wah effects. Emulate the classic tone of the MXR Dynacomp, dbx 160, Moog Filter or Z. Vex Seek-Wah, or create all-new effects using the automatic Slow Attack, parametric equalizer or six-band graphic EQ. Or choose Zoom's unique Noise Reduction (ZNR) algorithm, designed to remove noise during pauses while still maintaining your guitar's natural tone.

Overdrive / Distortion
Twelve exceptional boosters, overdrives, fuzzes and lead guitar sounds, including simulations of the BOSS OD-1, MXR Distortion+, Marshall Guv'nor, Fuzz Face, Big Muff and Pro Co Rat. Our ExtremeDS effect offers the most powerful gain of any distortion effect in the world, and there's also a simulator that allows your electric guitar to sound like an acoustic.

Amp
Twenty-two ultrarealistic models, including simulations of classic tube and solid state amps from manufacturers like Fender, Marshall, Vox, Hiwatt, Mesa Boogie, Orange, Bogner, Matchless and Diezel. The amp sounds are so lifelike, you'll swear on a stack of speaker cabinets you're listening to the real thing.

Modulation / Special Effects
Round out your sound with your choice of sixteen phasers and flangers, plus chorus, pitch shift, tremolo and vibrato. Included are emulations of the ADA Flanger, Boss CH-1 Super Chorus and TC Electronic Corona Chorus, as well as the Zoom HPS, an intelligent harmonizer that plays along in key, and a ring modulator that adds bell-like tones to your guitar. And when you're ready to go after some truly off-the-wall sounds, try out the endlessly rhythmic Slicer.

Delay / Reverb
Fourteen delays and natural-sounding reverbs, including rooms, halls, plates, springs, and tape delay simulators, all designed to add depth and spaciousness to your sound, with delay times of up to four seconds. You'll even find reverse delays, modulated reverbs and particle reverbs here-everything you need to place your guitar in a realistic space ¦ or a totally unearthly one.

This is the best multi fx unit and most functional for its size. The amps and fx are the same as the G3. The many fx are stereo and for recording stereo is the way to go. The Twin amp SIM is really lively when pumping up the gain knob. Zoom calls their very own tube emulation a Sigmoid Curve Clipper and IMO it is a very natural sounding gain without distortion control something that really cannot be controlled by any tube amp I ever used or heard of. My favorite amps are the Diezel, Big Drive Mesa SIM, the Vox Jimi with cranking gain , the Twin and Deluxe. The Metal World distortion SIM. The reverb are the best collection of reverbs in any unit I have ever tried, and many are true stereo. The Stereo Chorus is one of the best ever and the Stereo Delay is top quality. This is a pro sounding pedal and it is no joke. I love getting pro sound from inexpensive gear and this is the best sound for the money ever. Also, it is a sturdy pedal and I love the color and style, totally purposefully 80s. It is not like older lightweight pedals of yesteryear. This is the biggest secret weapon out there. I actually use one on the floor to run my own vocal fx that are sent from my onstage mini mixer fx send and return. They sound tremendous. I always have musician friends copying what I am doing and some other guys trying to impress a few fellow musicians with all their expensive gear do not always have the best sound because they believe expensive gear us the answer, but it is not. Trust me when I tell the audience knows nothing about gear but they do have ears and a lot of people have a good feel for good sound. Please let Zoom know how much you love this pedal and maybe they will make more like it.

I tried hard to get this little marvel to accept programming as it should, but it was eventually uneven. Specifically, programming the sequence and effect selection for any one patch worked as it should part of the time. Other times, selected effects would "gray out" and not be captured into the patch. Some would trigger a message that the unit could not process the desired effect. Otherwise, I would rate the effects quality as above-average, the general usability good, and a relatively good value. I do not feel like the company put much detail or thought into the user manual, as it was of no use once the problems started.

    Comments about Zoom G1on Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    I wanted something with a drum machine built in and battery operated for practice using headphones. This fills the bill and the looper is a plus. Start a drum pattern, record a rhythm loop, overdub a bass line with the Bass Sim and off you go. Editing a preset is fairly easy but you have to overwrite one to save your own patch. The reverbs and tremolo sound very good. I was able to create very realistic Fender clean and overdriven tones using the Twin Reverb & vibroverb simulations and Clapton/Cream tones with the Mashall Bluesbreaker sim and all my patches clean up nicely when I turn my guitar volume down. Drum patterns are pretty basic but good enough for practice. Lots of bang for your guitar buck. Thanks Zoom.

    Comments about Zoom G1on Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    Excellent pedal! -> I have a Digitech RP70 and RP155, and this actually blows them away. Mainly because of the following:

    1.+) The ability to arrange effects in any order. I was able to faithfully reproduce Scott Henderson's tone with striking accuracy.

    2.+) It doubles as a headphone amp. You can take this thing anywhere, plug some headphones in it and voila! Practicing anywhere with the tone you like!

    3.+) Very easy to get the hang off. Makes me wonder why it took so long to design a pedal like this? It's intuitive. It emulates the pedals extremely well, and it's design is second to none as far as going through the menus. You can even Re-Name your presets! Awesome work Zoom!

    4.+) You can record with the looper WHILE using your effects! This is priceless in my opinion.

    5.-) No on/off switch. This was the only turn off for me with this pedal, luckily, it was easy to modify. As a rule, I don't like pedals, or guitars that turn on with the input jack. So the first day I got it, I took it apart, and it was very easy to install a toggle on/off switch, so that I can leave it plugged in without killing the battery.

    Comments about Zoom G1on Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    I bought one of these for a backup to my Zoom G3. That unit has served me well for over 2 years and lots of gigs. This new G1on has a lot of the same amp models and effects as my G3. I don't think it would stand up to constant gigging, but for occasional use, it will be fine. The presets are ok, but the pedal offers enough versatility to program for your needs. For example, I have my patches set up like this, A0 is Fender clean with a little reverb. A1 is Fender clean with chorus. A2 is Fender clean with delay. So they all have the same basic amp sound with a different effects. I have used the looper live and it easy to use . This pedal offers a lot of bang for a little buck.

          Comments about Zoom G1on Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

          I bought this unit because of the low price after deciding to see what a multi effects pedal with a looper had to offer. I've been playing and gigging for 30 years and I was beginning to feel like I was watching technology grow, while I stayed with what I knew, a row of effect pedals and a nice amp. The pedal out of the box kept me amazed and occupied for weeks with no learning curve. Then I decided to organize and create patches, as well as re-name them. Still no need for a manual or a long educational tutorial. Watching a 2 minute youtube video of someone creating a patch on this was enough to make me feel like a pro at getting the sound I was looking for. The looper seems limited with what I see out on the market. For this pedal, I look at it as an added bonus that can amaze my bandmates with every time they take a break and I do something solo, with the help of my Zoom G1on.
