Zoom G1N Guitar Multi Effects Pedal; Acclaimed Multi-Effects brought to you by Zoom!
Held in the highest acclaim by guitarists all over the world since the 505 pedal was released in 1996, Zoom has maintained their position in the forefront of compact multi-effects. The G1N comes loaded and ready with incredible new drive sounds developed with Zoom's own ZFX modeling technology. 15 amp and stomp-box models faithfully reproduce the subtle details of the classic amplifiers they replicate. From the slightest gain settings to the overall harmonic character, the G1N provides the player with natural expression powered by their own playing dynamics to face-melting dirty tones that would drive your mom out of the house.
The controls are simple enough for any user, select the effect you want to edit with the selector knob then twist the value knob to change the settings. Never before has it been this easy to edit your effects. Set up your G1N to guitar sounds that you want to hear. Save patches, switch banks and integrated rhythm patterns, essentially the G1N makes fine-tuning your sounds is as easy as it gets. And don't forget, much like the Zoom effects pedals of the past, step on the two pedal buttons simultaneously and you get access to the built in chromatic tuner with bright LEDs for even the darkest jam space.

True Tube Modeling
Replicating the high frequency overtones created by the distortion effect of tube amplifiers is made possible by Zoom's original 32-bit, ZFX-3 processor. This allows the frequency response for our G1N to extend to an amazing 20Hz thru 40kHz with 96 kHz sampling rates. You get the rich harmonics of distortion specific to various types of tube amps, made possible with 24-bit A/D/A conversion and the processing power that only our digital modeling technology can reproduce.
54 Studio-Quality Effects
A total of eight modules provide 54 effect types ranging from must-have historic sounds of DynaComp, Vox Wah, Crybaby Wah, to Harmonized Pitch Shifter, long delay and echo settings of up to 5 seconds, and many more. A multitude of high-performance choices opens up totally new creative possibilities.
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 for blues sessions, and many more choices. Rhythm training is a cinch, and tap input allows you to specify the tempo easily.
Ultra low noise design on par with studio equipment
Specifications such as a signal-to-noise ratio of 110dB and noise floor of -98dBm demonstrate a level of performance that's not usually seen in units of this class. Background noise is a thing of the past, resulting in superbly transparent sound. Zoom's original noise reduction (ZNR) removes noise in playing pauses, while maintaining a natural release even on the tail of sustained notes.
Easy to carry in a gig bag
Its compact size and lightweight design make the G1N ideal for those who want plenty of effects and great performance without having to carry a lot of gear. Plus, its durable, reinforced body can withstand the rigors of use on stage or on the road.
AC/DC power operation
You get 12 hours of continuous operation with four AA alkaline batteries when using the G1N anywhere from the studio to the stage. Or plug in the included AC adapter for extended use.
Optional footswitch and expression pedal add versatility and control
When you connect the optional footswitch (FS01), you can switch patch banks or perform tap tempo input with your foot. You can also connect the optional expression pedal (FP02) to control effect parameters such as wah, pitch shift, volume, drive gain, modulation rate, mixing balance of delay and reverb in real time. With either option, you add a new dimension of control and versatility to this exceptional pedal.
