    A 2nd tube and a 2nd pedal for even more organic tone control.

    The Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface ups the ante with 2 tubes and 2 built-in expression pedals. The pedals can be assigned to control different parameters while the 2nd tube adds even more tube tone versatility.

    Energizer using 12AX7 tube
    Giving body to the guitar sound and adding supple power and intensity - that is the task of the Energizer. Turning up the TUBE control to drive the 12AX7 produces warm crunch with rich harmonics. The BOOST control spruces up highs and lows, resulting in more transparency. Enjoy a powerful tone also when recording directly to a line input or via USB on a computer.

    ZFX-3 - a 32-bit DSP designed by ZOOM
    The heart of any multi-effect device is its processor and decoder section. ZOOM has started a fresh chapter with its new ZFX-3 chip. The 32-bit architecture ensures outstanding performance and allows smooth and detailed signal processing. Accuracy and speed ensure that even delicate picking and fingering work come across with impressive clarity.

    DSP sound modeling plus tube circuitry create the ultimate in distortion
    96 kHz sampling and 24-bit A/D/A conversion assure super high resolution sound. An abundance of signal processing power allows accurate recreation of the complex upper-range harmonics that are the hallmark of tube amplifiers. Analog circuitry using a 12AX7 tube then adds that classic warmth and sonic impact to the DSP sound. The result combines the best of the digital and analog worlds: distortion so advanced and sophisticated it elevates your guitar playing to the next level.

    Preamp section with two channels
    The preamp section, comprised of the amp/drive-modeling, and EQ modules offers two channels per patch. You can easily select a channel by simple foot switch operation. Toggle between a Fender clean sound for rhythm and a Marshall drive sound for lead, while keeping modulation and spatial effect settings the same. The user interface with analog knobs lets you shape the sound with the same facility as on a guitar amp.

    Great for stage work or direct recording
    The amp/drive-modeling blocks have two dedicated algorithms for each amp/drive type, designed for live playing and direct recording. The CABINET effect simulates amp and mic recording characteristics as well, and the algorithm is automatically switched according to the CABINET on/off setting.This lets you bring the same guitar sound that you used during practice or recording right on to the stage. Alternatively, sound settings that were determined during a session with the band can be used seamlessly in the studio as well.

    USB based audio interface functions
    The USB port allows the unit to function as an audio interface for a computer. Simply plug the unit in to your computer with a USB cable to use the high-quality sound of the G7.1ut in a computer-based recording system. The high-performance DAW application "Cubase LE" comes bundled with the unit, so you can start creating sophisticated music straight away. Because playback from the DAW application can be monitored at the unit itself, there are no latency problems during recording.

    MIDI IN/OUT jacks allow linking to other equipment
    The ability to exchange MIDI data with other devices opens up a wealth of possibilities. You can switch patches in conjunction with a MIDI enabled preamp, or use the unit as a real-time controller for other MIDI equipment. By connecting the MIDI interface to a computer, you may use a dedicated editor/librarian application to edit and store patch data.

    Overall, I'd give this a solid A. Tube-driven distortions, amazing versatility, 2 "usable" expression pedals, solid construction, and great tone all make this a very decent product.
    Tons of features. I should note that different amp/dist. pedal models will work differently going into different amplifiers. You need to just find out which ones work with the amp you are using at that moment. They will also sound differently through headphones or to a mixing board, etc. Find the right settings for whatever you're plugging into at that moment. I have separate patch banks for this.

    The factory presets are useful if you turn the delay off first. They are good starting points for dialing in your own patches. I like the amp ones, plus the Brian May, Santana, and Cream ones.

    My favorite effects:
    Dynamic Delay -- absolutely brilliant with Sense on -3 to -10
    Reverbs -- Nearly all of them are awesome (Recommend a low Tone level or it is overpowering)
    PedalWah -- I leave the pedal alone and use it as a filter; adds beefiness and character to my distortions.
    Models: HotBox, FuzzFace, DigiFuzz, Guv'nor, MS Drive, DZ Drive, ENGL Drive, Acoustic Sim., HiWatt Clean, Fender Clean, Rectifier Clean, and PV Drive.
    EQ -- The built-in EQ is very effective and won't destroy your tone like cheap ones will

    Accelerator/Energizer -- An integral part of your setup. Tube/Tube for distortions, and SS/Boost for cleans. You can get some interesting OD/dist using the tube energizer on a clean model, though. Definitely play around.

    The only downfall to all the features is that it has a bit of a learning curve. Once you have made up a patch bank or two, it's easy to go into manual mode and select modules on/off and switch patches, though. It's getting to that point that will most likely take some time. Once you're there, you're golden.
    It is built very rugged all around with the one exception being the z-pedal. It feels somewhat flimsy when I play with it--if anything could possibly break on this thing, it would probably be the z-pedal. Everything else is solid and sturdy.

    The sound quality is great, but as mentioned above, some models will not work as well with certain amps as they will with others.

    The left volume pedal is not very useful because its sensitivity is on a very poorly chosen curve. It has a very tiny useful range, making it nearly impossible to use as intended. I suggest you set the minimum value to around 30-40, this will make it easier to adjust volume on the fly. However, you do lose the usefulness of having another "emergency" switch to drop your volume in case of feedback/whatever.
    This has a lot to offer. I've had it for a year and I haven't run out of new things to discover. It was definitely worth it, given the number of effects present, the quality of each effect, and the tweakability, not only of the effects themselves, but the behavior of the board as a whole.

    I was frustrated with my worn out stomp box pedal board, all the cable mess, AC adaptor wires, trying to remember where all my knobs are supposed to be, the hiss and noise and velcroe and zip ties... So I sold a bunch of that stuff and some old DI boxes. I took the money and bought this thing and a 24 X 11 Gator Case Pedal Board Gig Bag. Some time programming it but it's not a terrible learning curve. BTW, there's a lot of "boutique" overdrive and distortion pedals out there. But, with this you can create several of your own boutique overdrives as good or better than any of those. Ex; I use the Engl Drive, which is simulating an overdriven Engl E650 amp, the EQ and cabinet simulators to create a really fat, warm, sparkly, distortion tone that is smooth and bright and does not kill my individually pick notes. This is like my own boutique distortion pedal plugged into the front of my everyday fender tube amp. BTW, the software works great but it's easy enough to program from the board without using the software. I only used the software once and realized I didn't need it.
    All fantastic features. I use it mostly in the Manual Mode so to me it's like a set of stomp boxes in front of an amp. The sound quality of each effect is top notch. Although at times I can hear digital artifacts but I hear similar artifacts with Boss multi FX pedals and some digital rack gear also. Not bad enough that anyone else would notice though. BTW, I monitor this unit with an ear peice directly from the headphone jack since the headphone jack does not cut off the output. So the artifacts might be just in the headphone jack. FX use use most in a single manual mode patch are; Volume pedal, Vox Wah, a light overdrive, a heavier distortion, tremolo, chorus, delay, reverb, tap tempo control. each of these are assigned to individual pop switches within a patch. This allows me to turn each on and off just like a regular pedal board. It has 2 preamp channels within each patch. This allows me to switch from light overdrive to heavy distortion within the patch and still all my other switches remain the same functions. Either preamp channel can be truned off by stepping on the preamp #2 switch for a clean amp tone while all the other FX remain operative like a normal pedal board in front of a 3 channel amp. Preamp off = clean amp tone, preamp on = overdrive tone, channel A/B switch to switch between overdrive and distortion channels. Very functional for live shows. There's also Preset mode if that's how you prefer to use it.
    Solid built but the Z Pedal, which I hardly use, is not as sturdy as the rest of it. I opened it up and found 2 decent quality Chinese tubes that are very selectible as preamp tubes in many amplifiers. Similar to tubes I have prefered in my smaller combo amps. I temporarily exchanged 'em both with 2 old stock TeleFunkens but quickly put the Chinese back in as a tonal preference. I'm curious to try other tubes someday. Seems like the Accelerator preamp tube on the left is a true signal through tube design and the Energizer tube on the right is s "blend in" design similar to the ART Tube MP preamps where the signal is not 100% through the tube. So, the Energizer section would not be a power amp section. But it works great and the Boost knob definetly adds a warm presence tone. Strudy pop switches you can feel 'em under the sole of a boot. All metal jacks along the back. Pedal tensions are somewhat adjustable and stay where you leave them when you lift your foot off.
    Has all the FX I want and then many more. These are high quality sounding effect. Every one of them. Example; The Tremolo has fully adjustable depth, rate, can be assigned to BPM, tap tempo, or midi, has 30 assignable wave forms, and a level/mix knob. And, can be programmed to the AARM function and assigned to one of the pedals for realtime control or to follow a midi sequence from your computer. Most, perhaps all, the FX have similar functionality. I have not explored them all yet. I messed with the feature that allows it to be used as a midi pedal and hooked up my outboard Boss VF-1 via midi and connected the VF-1 to the G9.2tt Ext. Loop. I can seemlessly go from playing the sounds on the G9.2tt - switch on the Ext. Loop and immediately my VF-1 synthesizer sounds are playing through the output of the G9.2tt. And the synth tones are immediately under the control of the G9.2tt pedals and switches without messing up my G9.2tt settings. This way I can jump right back to the sound I had before looping in the outboard FX. Now that's cooler than a polar bears but in an asss dragging contest.

    Versatile, VERY low noise, super high sampling rate

    Comments about Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface:

    My only complaints are few and small:

    The manual is complex. That's not all bad. It's just that this thing is DEEP and has so many functions. Be prepared to spend time reading and tweaking. I think this system could be a little better with a larger screen and a simpler, more intuitive interface.

    The STEREO outs are a must for quality recording of modern tones, especially when playing with brutal high-gain sounds and pitch-shift or chorus.

    Without STEREO, pitch or chorus effects sound muddy and weak.

    WITH STEREO, distorted sounds with pitch-shift or mild chorus are MASSIVE & MANLY.

    The only problem with this is the outputs are not balanced line-outs. With balanced line-outs you can run long cables without any degradation. Honestly, the low-noise is so good here, most people would never notice that though.

    The unit seems rugged and I've had no problems yet, but I also baby my gear. It probably would not stand up to rock-star antics or drunken roadies.

    HEY ZOOM! I'd GLADLY pay an extra $50 bucks for a bigger screen and balanced line-outs!

    YES! I would buy another one in a heartbeat if you offered those upgrades!
    This is for traveling professionals and working musicians that need MAX versatility in a small package.

    It has ALL the basic effects and a few weird extras for "spacey" or "unreal" guitar sounds.
    Most what is here is musical, useful stuff like we hear on famous records. If you play in a cover band, you can create any famous sound. If you're into creating new sounds, this thing has a bunch!

    Z-axis pedal control is unique and can do cool stuff. For instance, I set one patch up so that the forward/back motion is wah, while the right/left motion adds delay. You can also get crazy feedback sound with octaves (up or down) that imitate classic Hendrix tones. I keep the left-side pedal for volume only. That makes it great for boosting solos & hands-free volume adjustments. You don't need a boost pedal with this feature.
    The sound quality is AMAZING for this price-point! TWO main things stand out:
    1~ The super-high sampling rate (96kHz) makes this unit "feel" and behave like analog.
    2~ The extremely LOW-noise makes everything else in your rig sound better.

    It works with my single-coils and humbuckers very well. Be sure to set input volume!

    I should point out that it has decent noise-reduction for distortion-mad metal heads. ZOOM NR is not nearly as easy to adjust as the venerable ISP decimator units, but if you spend some time with your rig and the manual, you can get 85 to 90% of ISP performance. That is fine for most situations.

    Most of the LOW-noise quality comes from the unique circuit design and quality components in the front end. If you understand ADA conversion, you will know why this is the most crucial area of audio design. Once a signal is converted to digital, you can manipulate it easily and cheaply. But the crucial first step is the initial conversion. ALL the ZOOM products do this VERY WELL.
    Really amazing everything you get with this for 3 bills. That double-axis pedal can do very subtle musical things or crazy wild sounds not possible with any other rig I know. HIGH sound-quality and LOW noise STEREO operation is fantastic at this price.

    Zoom G9.2TT Multi Effects

    Comments about Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface:

    I love this product, i wanted it for like 2 years and i finally got it! I love it, it has so many effects and, modulations to choose from. The 2 pedals are great because my band has 2 multi effects and they only have 1 pedal. The value is great! The quality is great too but doess scratch easily if something fell on it. Like I said the features are awesome! I would reccomend this pedal to anyone, pros or beginners. Mostly i got this pedal because it had 2 pedals, and it was big in size!

    Zoom G9.2tt review

    By sha dog

    from Durango Colorado

    Comments about Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface:

    It is a little overly complicated, but the layout, and more importantly the sound/response is very good. I plug it in the effects loop on my fender Blues deville and it sounds great. That way, I can still drive the front end of the amp with my favorite stomps and get the most out of my amp, and be able to use the Zoom for post-preamp proccessing. With the preamp models disengaged it tracks absolutely flawlessly, and is completely transparent. I really can't hear any difference (except better EQ!) when the processor is engaged and I've used true bypass boxes just to make sure I was really getting the best analog clean tone to compare. The models sound fine if you mess with the EQ long enough - be careful, the high end on this thing if ferocious. I have to lower the last three bands by 6-8 decibels just to get it back to normal. The z pedal comes in handy for some some wacky stuff. If you're wondering if it's a gimmick it's not, I use it every show.
    nice layout, tube pre-amp - post processor exciters are nice & add a lot. Volume controlls are a pain to get leveled sometimes - to many choices. Extension works well and have nice flexible routing options. Delays are really quite good, as are the reverbs, and the modulations. Way more analog controll of your tone that any other digital processor. the 2 assignable Function buttons are a nice touch. Everthing works well is intelligently layed out for maximum signal, no tone complaints here, and I am very particular, and have played this unit thru multiple US made tube amps with my american made "big apple cherry daddy" custom strat. Z pedal can controll up to 8 parameters in real time, nothing is off the table and it still retains a quality sound while being used - doesn't degrade the signal.
    I've had mine for about a year and a half - no problems. I've managed to keep the beer off it so far. It does have little vented openings in the top to let the tubes breathe, and if a little beer fell in there - which happens in clubs we play at from time to time - I could imagine it being the end of it - but so far so good. Buttons are solid, pedals have good sweep and are resposive and any opti-electric pedal (I prefer real pots). Wha's sound really good for digital, but my crybaby staight into the input on the amp sounds better. Feels solid - heavy - looks like a f---ing spaceship, which I like, when it's lit up on stage. Tubes are cheap but sound fine. No complaints on quality here.
    I don't know how you could possibly do better for the money. I gave away my digitech rp500 after 6 months because I thought it sounded like digital garbage and got this. I've never looked back. 32 bit processing - two tubes - two expression pedals - multiple opperation modes - flexible routing options (use ext. loop input for extra guitar etc.) great sound - what more do you want?

    It's a Keeper

    By Brian Gerard

    from West Hazleton Pa

    Comments about Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface:

    I really like it so far...out of the box, it is a bit digital, but it does have a great overall sound quality, and the tubes really do the job. I don't really have anything to compare it to as far as the other multi effects out there, but I can say that this really works for my needs
    I as well bought it just to have a tube preamp/eq thing going on before going into the amp...that alone to me was worth the price! I run mine through the front of a JC120 Head into a 4x12 stereo cab with a Classic Lead 80 and a K100 on each side...I may someday change out the tubes to experiment, but it was able to dial up "my sound" right away...used to use a Digitech RP7, and being 12 years since I bought that thing, this blows it away. I don't use a ton of effects, so this has everything that I would ever need..2 pedals are nice...preset sounds are cheesy as always....this thing is so flexible that it will take some time to really work it, but the potential is there and that's what counts
    So far so good!....The thing is built like a tank and the knobs feel good as well...it actually looks flimsier in the photos than it really is..I thought that even the 3rd expression pedal was rugged enough for my uses, and I will use it live, though I don't know how much I will use the 3rd pedal anyway
    I got a phat deal from Musicans Friend, so I went with the purchase....it's a keeper! For the bread, it's got all that I need.

    Nice board with a lot of flexibility for the money.

    A few beefs.They used chome "Rectifier-like" knobs on the pre-amp controls. And like the Rectos, they're a pain in the butt to see unless you're right ontop of them. Would be difficult to see in a club. The other knobs are black with red cursors and a bit easier to see. They sould have used all black knobs.ALSO...I'm not too skilled in PC recording, but the Cubase software is a REAL PAIN for me to register. When using it on the PC, it's not like using a GuitarPort. You still have to connect the output directly to your speaker system or amp. As people who are familiar with playing guitar on a pc know, there's a drastic latantcy.
    I'm still playing with it. But so far, I think it's the best for the money.So here's some things I've noticed. It's got many ways to fine tune the sound. Input and out put buffer amps, with the input having a blend between solid-state and tube. ( like some bass amps ) You can remove the modeling pre-amp if you just want to use the effects with a good amp. ( That's why I got it ). However, the the flexibility also makes it a bit complicated at first. So it's geared towards the tweaker, semi-pro.One thing I noticed, it had an annoying buzz after a note was decaying with the modeling and most effects. After turning the boost knob on the energizer all the way up, that got rid of it and everthing sounded MUCH better.like all modeling, they don't sound EXACTLY like what it's supposed to be. But I think some things, like the tube screamer and Fender setting , sounds even better.It's got a lot of potentiometers so it's BIG. ( like 2 foot ) Consequently, I've heard people complain that the pre-amp aren't programmable. But if you hate playing with bank buttons like I do, that's the trade off.
    It's pretty well built. Solid metal-click footswitches like the old pedals. Metal chassis, cast aluminum x-pression pedals. It even has rubber pads on the ends in case you drop on the ends. ( nice touch! )Having said that. I can't believe Zoom doesn't make a carry case for their flagship model, and makes cases for their cheaper ones. Maybe a small keyboard case will do the trick.
    For me, this is just what I was looking for. A one piece pedal board that can be used just for the effects when using a nice amp, and have the amp modeling capabilities when practicing on a small combo. ..oh. For those who don't know yet, there's 2 pre-amp, modeling channels per patch. ( that's kinda' cool too )

    A massive waste of money

    Comments about Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface:

    Overall, I was disappointed. The G7 and G2 even the G1 are better. the G2 is the best. Has never failed me. Ive used it live MANY times. I have recorded with it thousands of times for youtube videos and for songs and instructional videos. I have used it to help my friends with their dems as well. I was looking forward to expanding my gear and it looks like i waited 2 months for nothing. Save your money and get a G1, G2 or a G7 which im going to try out next. Let's see how that goes. Thanks Zoom. Awesome job. Make your pedals like the Zoom G2 model from 2008. Best pedal ever made. If you want distortion get the Twin Tube Mayhem pedal by Seymour Duncan.
    This pedal has so many feature that it is mind boggling. I had this pedal for less than a day. That's how unsatisfied i was. I tried editing my settings, but i could not. I read through the instruction booklet multiple times and i could not change any settings. I called customer service and they were no help what so ever. I can't save my settings. I can't activate the tubes. I can't use any of the features on this pedal. I bet you're wondering why. I wanted to change the wah settings to match my Zoom G2 which is amazing, best pedal ive ever used. The Zoom G9.tt, the wah settings were under the Reverb on EVERY patch, the Delay was under Wah on EVERY patch, the Pre Amp turned distortion on or off, had a wah or modular or did ABSOLUTELY nothing. The Delay and Modular patches were all messed up. none of the effects were where the manual said they were.
    Like i said above, nothing worked. It was durable, but what's the good if it doesn't work.
    No value. Waste of money. the G2 unit is 100 times better. it actually works. this pedal? HA. worthless. its a better weapon than an effects console.

    Great

    Comments about Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface:

    I mostly use the USB output to my computer, and it's never ceased to amaze me how solid and thick the sound is. My main gripes? The amount of gain and distortion given by the tubes are locked in on the unit itself -- they aren't saved per patch. This means that if I have the tubes adding quite a bit of color for my hi-gain sound, then switch to a crystal clean patch... the tubes continue to add that real overdriven break-up unless I actually reach down and turn down the tubes. While I'm recording more than actively gigging, so it's not usually an issue, it's certainly worth noting. Also, the menu isn't nearly as friendly as I was used to with the PODXT Live -- be prepared to refer to your manual now and then to find out what some of the effects' parameters are for, especially the wackier, Z-Pedal ones. As others have said, be prepared to spend a LOT of time dialing in sounds you like -- there's quite a bit of setup, even if you just want to run a Comp to Amp to some Delay and Reverb. The Comp has its own Level, the Amp has a Level, each of the two EFX has a Level... volume settings alone will take time to dial in right, and of course will change from amp to amp, guitar to guitar, and whether live or in the studio. But, as most players know, with great flexibility comes great setup times.
    I went with this pedal about four months ago to replace my Line 6 PODXT Live, which was a real workhorse for almost 5 years. I'd never used any Zoom gear, but as I had grown as a player, I came to realize how my XT Live did a good job "sounding" like a real amp, but never really "felt" like one. My hope was that the real tubes in the Zoom would help, and it certainly does. Getting that real, slightly-overdriven crunch sound is great, and the sheer variety of high-gain amps has satisfied me greatly (I'm a distortion freak; every song I record features the same guitar part done through 3 to 5 distortions for that true thick sound). The Z-Pedal seems VERY gimmicky to me -- I have yet to find a song where I'd use it, and even if I did, I'd hate to have a guitar part written around such a unique gimmick in the case this thing eventually breaks down. That said, having two seperate expression pedals is pretty neat; assigning one to pre-amp volume and the other to a wah (or even the amount of gain on the amp model) creates quite a few options for control of tone, even in the middle of performance.
    So far, so good. I haven't put this thing through as much punishment as my PODXT Live (which no longer has a USB jack, I've had to re-soder the power jack, and the expression pedal is busted), but so far it's still felt solid despite a few car rides and banging around on the concrete of the garage. I'm a little worried about the tubes eventually going bad (I haven't looked up any info on replacing them, though I'm sure there's probably some way). The horizontal Z-Pedal feels flimsy -- I'd be terrified to use it often on-stage. But it works fine as the traditional wah-type pedal, as does the left-side pedal. All the stomp buttons feel solid (though are a bit small; if you're at home, put on shoes if you'll be using them a bit).
    The sheer variety in high-gain and distortion models was enough to sell me. But it does have some good effect models. The Manual mode is great if you've already got an amp sound you like and are just looking for an effect loop in one unit, and the Function 1 and Function 2 buttons are pretty neat (though limited by your imagination; for now, I rarely use it as anything more than switching on/off the wah or going from A/B amp setups, but I'm sure some delay-happy players will appreciate Tap Tempo and the like).

    I don't know

    Comments about Zoom G9.2tt Twin Tube Guitar Multi-Effects Pedal/USB Interface:

    If you like really crappy service and something that arrives broken, this is the product for you. Again, it's a good sounding product...probably better in some ways to the old GNX I used prior. The tripple peddle is good; the 12ax tubes are good; it's easy to program; sturdy
    Very cool. You can read all about the features in the literature. Just be prepared to get no customer service from either musician's friend or the manufacturer with this product. I really can't remember getting worse service.
    Product came with both pedal broken. The part that contacts with the switch is about an 8th of an inch off. I put a guitar pick between the switch and the contact on the pedal and it works fine. If you try to get musician's friend to replace it--count on waiting a month or two for the replacement. Reason (The manufacturer, Samson? (That's who MF sends you to) Actually Samson is the soul distributor for the US. The manufacturer is some company in Japan. Basically, you are without a pedal for 30 days if you buy this peddle. I like the pedal overall though. I might by another to see if it comes broken or not, but that's as much fun as I'm willing to have with this.
    You always get what you pay for. It's a cool peddle overall.
