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.

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.

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:

            While I might hesitate using it at a professional level, it's more than perfect for practicing, jamming, or the occasional informal recording. But for the price of a cheap night out you have yourself a competent multi-effects processor, decent tuner, drum beats, and a looper that, with basic care, will last a long time. Like many other preset effects pedals, there are some really cheesy tones, but with a little patience you can make either the presets or your own tones quite playable. I'll even go as far as saying there are a few that are great as is. As far as I'm concerned, Zoom has the ultra-low budget corner of the multi-effects pedal world, and I look forward to see what they come with next. The G1on is definitely worth an audition.

                Comments about Zoom G1on Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

                Use the pedal mostly for practice. I have a Digitech RP150 (it's old), and the Zoom seems to be quite a bit easier to tweak. A majority of the effects sound very good. It comes with a load of drum tracks and an easy to use looper. Only issue with the looper is I would like to able to delete overdubs. But for the price this is way above what I was expecting. I don't believe there is a better practice pedal out there. I was on the fence about this pedal and wish I would have bought it sooner. It's a keeper.

                  Lots of good tones, right out of the box. This Multi-effect perfect for me. Very potable, I can play anywhere. It has loop and drum pattern and easy to switch tones. What more could you buy for at this price.
                  I gave 4 points because No power Supply included and No Off switch.

                    I use this pedal to help come up with my own sound. It mimics a few good amps and then you can customize what effects you want to go with it. The looper is nice but could be a little longer. ( only 30 seconds ) I would buy it again. Definitely worth the money.
