    Zoom

    96kHz sampling, 32-bit processing, 16 Classic amp and stomp box models, and more.

    The Zoom G2 Guitar Multi Effects Pedal offers two algorithms: one for live and one for recording. The sound you created at practice or in the studio can now be brought straight to the stage. Or take the sounds you worked out during a rehearsal and apply them seamlessly in the recording studio. Your creative scope has suddenly doubled.


    96 kHz sampling brings out authentic sounding tube amp harmonics

    Everyone knows that the sound of tube amplifiers is the ultimate in guitar tone. By employing high-accuracy sampling at 96 kHz, G2 pedal faithfully model these sonic properties, right up to the highest harmonic register. Dynamic range is also excellent, thanks to 24-bit A/D/A conversion. These extremely high levels of digital processing also make your playing sound cleaner and clearer thanks to the fast processing speeds.

    ZFX-3: A new-generation DSP from ZOOM
    The heart of any multi-effect device is its processor and decoder section. Zoom has reached a new level with its newly developed ZFX-3 chip. 32-bit architecture ensures smooth and detailed signal processing. Accuracy and speed bring out the character of your instrument without restrictions.

    54 high-quality effects made possible by 32-bit processing

    A total of nine effects modules are included, including dynamics, ambience, drive, and modulation. Together they offer 54 types of effects. The Harmonized Pitch Shifter lets you play along in key. Use long delays or multi-tap delay of up to 5000 milliseconds. Select dynamic flanger and have the effect level controlled by picking intensity. Select from three types of modulation waveforms for the tremolo. A multitude of high-performance choices opens up totally new territory in this class. Touch up the harmonic register with the six-band equalizer. The cabinet simulator gives a choice of mic positions. The G Series has in incredible level of flexibility and the ability to create an awesome array of great tones.

    Latest modeling technology supports 16 different drive sounds

    By digitally simulating the clipping action of analog devices such as tubes and diodes, the G Series faithfully duplicates the distortion of tube amps and vintage effects. This includes not only the superficial sound character but also elements such as depth and dynamics. As you start using the G Series, you will be amazed by the realistic balance between fundamental notes and harmonics that is essential to a great analog tone.

    The right tools for the job: Editing controls with analog feel

    The three rotary knobs let you tailor three different parameters at the same time. This could be the equalizer bass/midrange/treble, or the chorus depth/rate/mixing level, or the delay time/feedback/mixing level. It's like having an array of stomp boxes ready for action. In play mode, the three knobs are assigned to drive effect gain, tone, and patch level. This lets you quickly match the unit's performance to the guitar or amp type, room acoustics, or other factors. Delay time and modulation rate settings can be made directly via the intuitive TAP key input.

    Preset patches ready to use for recording or live performance

    The Zoom G2 comes preprogrammed with a total of 40 preset effects patches. 20 pairs of similar sounding and similarly named effects are optimized respectively for use with a guitar amp on stage or for recording with DAW software or a mixer. There are settings for duplicating well-known amps and stomp boxes, settings that are modeled on the signature sound of famous guitarists, as well as totally original Zoom creations. There is also enough built-in memory to store up to 40 of your own effects patches.

    World's fastest patch change speed: 5 ms

    Thanks to the speed of Zoom's new processors, that annoying interval when switching patches has been all but eliminated. With its amazing speed of 0.005 seconds, the G Series pedals never miss a beat. When changing from rhythm to lead, you no longer need to press the switch slightly in advance. Simply push the foot switch and start playing the solo phrase. No more fear of losing the rhythm when making patch changes.

    Built-in auto-chromatic tuner for guitar

    The guitar tuner can be called up instantly by pushing two foot switches together. High-brightness LED indicators make the note readout easy to see also on a dark stage. The calibration range is 435 to 445 Hz, and mute tuning without sound output is also possible.

    ZNR makes those playing pauses silent

    Zoom Noise Reduction (ZNR) was developed specifically for guitar. While keeping any alteration of the original sound to an absolute minimum, ZNR shuts out unwanted noise in the playing pauses. Even the tails of long sustain notes come out beautifully, with natural release. Additional flexibility is provided by two noise gates. The vintage type DIRTY GATE is a great match for fuzz sounds, while the high-speed muting of the GATE setting brings heavy riffs into clear focus.

    Integrated 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 riffs for blues sessions, and many more choices. Rhythm training is a cinch, and the rotary knobs let you quickly make tempo or level adjustments.

    Ultra low noise design: 120 dB SN ratio and -100 dB noise floor

    Specifications such as a signal-to-noise ratio of 120 dB and noise floor of -100 dB demonstrate a level of performance that is unsurpassed in this class. Background noise is a thing of the past, leaving the unit free to produce only its own superbly transparent sound. Especially when using reverb effects such as Hall, Room, or Spring, the low noise floor combined with 96 kHz sampling and 32-bit processing results in breathtaking performance.

    Sturdy metal chassis and rubber damping for superior toughness and durability
    The combination of a solid metal chassis with shock-absorbent rubber damping ensures that the unit can stand up to the rigors of use on stage. Take it on the road or into the studio, the G Series will not let you down.

    Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

    The drives are outstanding. The fact that you can switch agorithems after creatin a preset is an advantage over other budget multieffectors. i bought it for packing light to practice while traveling and to inprove the versitility of my bang around practice amp. it does both effectively. i'm glad i did, because i have now been successfully introduced to Zoom. it has me wanting to replace tracks on some of my demo's because of drives, like the digital fuzz.

      Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      So far, good for use on my electric violin for live shows--and there are even some effects that can work for the fret-less bass. The Drum machine is a bonus feature. I like the stomp buttons--and being able to shape the patches like a synth, and of 'course, the portable size. But I've found some issues: still learning how to save the tweaked patches (not very intuitive), and you have to scroll through the patches to get to the one you need (even on the saved patches)----it's not always practical for a live show, when you have quick song changes. Otherwise, it's works well.

      Nice Multi Effects- I have the G2R (Richie Kotzen Model)

      Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      Best little effects unit for the price. Sounds are great. I got compliments on how warm it sounds through my tube amps through the effects loop. Also, put it through my DAW and it sounded pretty good. Like I said before I would add a few extra switches and volume pedal built it.
      I have the Richie Kotzen Model which is basically the same thing but with Richie's presets. I like the features this unit has in terms of being intuitive and dialing in the effects you want. You can use 9 effects at one time which is awesome. I run this unit through my effects loop in my 6505 head and also my Fender Twin amp taking advantage of more or less the effects like delay, chorus, reverb and flanger. But this thing is capable of much more and you can use the many different amp models in it. My favorite thing about it is that is is very simple and easy to use. I have other bigger multi effects units and there is so much time you have to put into them. Once you've read the manual once you can figure this thing out so easily. I also like Richie's presets. Lots of funky sounds, wah, and it sounds like his total tone running through a good tube amp. I wouldn't advise running this unit through a solid state amp, you just don't get the best tonal capabilities. I would add a foot pedal and another switch and this would be perfect but you can buy those seperately.
      Contruction is fantastic. Made of metal, durable, has rubber bumpers. Knobs work well. Top notch.
      Good price for what it does. I use this thing more than my expensive units because it is easier to program and use.

      Has great delays, distortions, and "synth-y" sounds. The tap tempo is also awesome.

      Really, really good...

      By The Mark

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      I've had this for about 3 years now (got rid of the previous model as soon as this came out), and it has been really reliable. I would note that the dial knobs along the top are not chrome metal, but plastic. One of them broke off, but still works when you sit it on the peg where it goes. Aside from this, it has been a true champ. Playing on the acoustic channel with the distortion set at around "70" (through my Vox AC-30VR) can give a Les Paul the sound of a whole other guitar, along the lines of a Strat mixed with a hollow body. The more I fool with it, the more I'm amazed at what it can do. GREAT deal for a hundred bucks.

      Redefines digital

      By J Paul

      from Denver, CO

      Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      The ubiquitous mantra amongst modern tone hounds is "digital sucks".I have several tube amps, and mostly I agree with that mantra...except when it comes to this pedal. The sounds you can get from this little miracle are mezmerizing. I have soooo many analog pedals. And I'll pull them out every so often convinced that I've left something behind by just using this "lowly" digital pedal. Then I'll get tired of fighting with high gain noise and ground loops, and bs, and go back to this pedal again and...WOW! This thing has just sounds amazing.The only downside of this pedal is that it's complicated to set up (as are most multi-effects units). But spend the requisite couple of evenings setting it up...and you could end up with an entire rig that fits in a gig bag. A truly amazing pedal, digital or otherwise.

      Excellant effects Processor

      Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      First let me say the Harmonized Pitch Shifter alone is worth the price. It tracks perfectly and even though it only shows 2 minor keys, let me say "Learn your Modes" and you can use any of the settings for all. ex. You want a fifth about in D Dorian Or Am etc, just set it to C Maj. Although I prefer pedals, this is the only one I found where you could turn off the amp sounds and use only the effects you want. Not that they sound bad, I just don't care for digital amps.I have since also purchased the A2 & B2!!

      Best bang for your buck in multi-effects

      By gmoney-MIh0u

      from Long Island, NY

      Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      This unit excels at one thing: IT SOUNDS GOOD.You'll hear people bash zoom all over the place, but the simple fact is that Zooms multi effects alogorithm in this series sounds better than Boos, Digitiech, Korg, etc. I use this as a chorus/flange/trem/vibe/pitch shifter/harmonizer/extra delay..so it basically replaces 6 extra pedals on my board that I would only use for 1 or 2 songs in a set each. Well, well worth $100...and I've had people come up to me after my bands set and ask where I got that awesome solo harmony tone from. I laugh and tell them it's a $100 pedal that the jerk at the music store laughed at when I bought it.

      Zoom G2

      Comments about Zoom G2 Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal:

      Have mine for over a year, which this replaced the my old Zoom 505. As the others have said it's effects are great, the limited tweakability is not a problem for me. It has some very cool amp sims, I personally like the Fender, PV, Boogie. THE KILLER APP IN THIS UNIT IS: You can set-up a patch and use a FtSw to toggle your delay On or Off while the rest of your patch is active!!! Nobody else has this feature. I use this in my Amp FX loop to provide Hall Reverb & Chorus and a DP1 FtSw as my Delay On/Off. Run the DP1 down to the floor next to my Front-End pedals, and it's like having super compact bulletproof rack unit in my gig bag.
