Zoom

80 popular guitar effects and 65 built-in rhythm accompaniment patterns, plus an expression pedal.

Zoom's G1Xon offers 80 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 of 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.

Expression Pedal
The G1Xon adds an expression pedal to the two main pedals, allowing you to alter any selected parameter in real time. You can use it for gain drive or volume (affecting either input or output level), to add wah or filtering, to affect delay time or modulation speed, or a variety of other parameters. In addition, the pedal range can be independently adjusted for every patch—you can even set the minimum value higher than the maximum value for reverse pedaling effects.

There's also a simple calibration procedure which enables you to customize pedal sensitivity. Whether you're a featherlight player or a real leadfoot, the G1Xon can adapt to your particular pedaling style.

      Comments about Zoom G1Xon Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

      For the money, this is a great piece of equipment to own. It's amazing how far these things have come. I spent over five hundred in 1989 to get the BOSS ME-5 and this unit does so much more.

      I have a BOSS GT-100 and there is a difference but there should be - the GT-100 costs significantly more money.

      The G1Xon has a smaller sound. It sounds great with headphones, not as great plugged in to the amp.

      However, the sounds are more than adequate. Usually, it is distortion and overdrive that lack in lesser-priced units like this but the patches on the G1Xon have surprisingly good sounds.

      I use it with batteries and play it through a Pignose portable battery-powered amp which I also purchased here at MF. This is what I got it for - pure portability. I am not bound by any outlets.

      The BOSS GT series units are big and hard to transport. I get invited to jams or to play parties and I rather not invest so much effort in transport and setup of equipment in these situations.

      The ZOOM G1Xon actually fits in to the bag and I have everything I need including a looper and an expression pedal for Wah and other purposes.

      The only drawback is that it doesn't have a second output jack. The unit would sound better in live situations if the stereo signal was split to two amps; however, you could get a stereo Y-jack to achieve the same result.

      Also, the unit does not save the ON/OFF state of the expression pedal. So, if you have a Wah pedal in your chain, when you go to the patch, the Wah is engaged. I would have preferred to have control of switching it on when I wanted.

      What it comes down to is, you can't beat this multi-effect pedal for the cost.

      You will find it an asset and a convenience to have one handy in your arsenal of equipment.

      It makes you sound good instantly in any make-shift environment.

      Comments about Zoom G1Xon Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

      I purchased an ms-50g first and returned it to get this one,This peddle rocks! it sounds incredible, for the price it really is unbelievable! it shares the sound engine with the g-3, but this one is a little more user friendly and compact, it just doesn't have the computer interface (to use with the daw). I run this peddle straight into a pre-amp to power amp to two 3-way monitors and it sounds tight! i can't believe they can sell this thing at this price,it's that good! especially the wah's they're are way better than the original's by far. i'm sold, if something happened to it i would find who took it and savagely beat them with it! (then take it home to play it!) musician's friend rule's!

      • Plastic

      Best Uses

      • Good Practice Box

      Comments about Zoom G1Xon Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

      Neat little box. My pocket pod died and I was looking for a replacement. This one is a bit easier to use and has alot more effects. Build quality is OK but we're talkin bottom end of the feild here. Fine for practice but I'd think twice about taking out. Sound quality and the way it works is wayyy different than the pod units and much easier to use than previous generations of multi fx I have used. Scroll and pick a virtual pedal vs cycling through menues and then going into sub menues...I like the way zoom did things. I normally have a Pretty steep learning curve but I was able to jump right in and dial in pretty quick.

      Drums are pretty cool, lots of patterns, Sound is on par or a tick above the pocket pod and pretty consistant Between phones and amp

      Really big bang for the buck knock around and practice pedal.
