The Zoom G5 Guitar Amp Modeling Multi-Effects Pedalboard combines the ease of a stompbox pedalboard and the power of a multi-effects pedal and USB audio interface, along with an extra LCD display/footswitch interface, Tube Booster, 3D Z-pedal and additional amp models and effects. While extremely easy to use, the Zoom G5 guitar effects processor gives you the ultimate in control over your guitar tones in stage and studio settings.

    • Tube Booster (12AX7 tube) for up to 16dB of amp overdrive
    • 3D Z-pedal for multi-dimensional parameter control
    • Four large LCD displays with intuitive amp and stompbox interface
    • Over 123 stompbox presets and 22 amp models

    • Looper function with 60 seconds of phrase recording and overdubbing
    • Integrated drum machine and auto-chromatic tuner
    • USB audio interface for DAW recording
    • Balanced XLR output and selectable modes for DI use

    Up to nine simultaneous stomps
    The Zoom G5 pedalboard offers four large LCD displays and corresponding footswitches that form a graphical interface, allowing you to utilize up to nine stompbox and amp effects simultaneously. The interface of the G5 has also been simplified with three control knobs for each display. This intuitive design makes creating, saving and rearranging the effect chain of your own sounds a breeze and provides easy navigation in live and studio settings.

    Tube Booster for amp overdrive
    The Zoom G5 effects processor’s Tube Booster (12AX7 tube) allows you to add sudden power and intensity to your performance, particularly when soloing. While its Boost control can add up to 16dB of amp overdrive, the Tone knob lets you control the EQ of your sounds with the added volume. The Tube Booster also offers extra power when recording directly to a line input.

    Z-Pedal Z-pedal offers 3D parameter control
    The expression pedal featured on the Zoom G5 pedalboard supports 3D action by sensing not only up and down, but also side to side movement. This Z-pedal lets you build highly complex sound control patterns by allowing you to assign up to three parameters in each axis of pedal movement (vertical and horizontal). In addition, there are 20 effects specifically designed for use with the Z-pedal. Get creative in ways never imagined before, and explore a whole new realm of pedal performance with the Zoom G5.

      Evolution of tube amp simulation
      A sigmoid curve clipper within the Zoom G5 re-creates the smooth clipping of a tube amp’s waveform. With its tube distortion, the G5 can simulate amplifier sounds, including clean, crunch and full-gain drive tones that are authentic to the original models while maintaining the nuances of picking and strumming techniques.

      Super-real amp modeling
      The Zoom G5’s 22 super-real amp models range from vintage heads to the latest trends in amp technology, each with its own distinct cabinet modeling that can be used to alter its tone characteristics. By combining amplifiers and cabinets, you can digitally design your own custom rig. The G5’s modeling technology provides the best tone for both live performance and direct recording.

      123 world-renowned stompbox effects
      The Zoom G5 offers 123 diverse types of stompbox effects, including some of the world’s most popular guitar pedals and rack-mounted processors. You can use up to nine effects in any combination. The Zoom G5’s wide range of effects includes distortion, compression, modulation, delay, and reverb. Its HD Reverb uses DSP power to produce a rich resonance that rivals outboard gear. The G5 can store up to 297 (99 banks x 3 patches) of your original creations!

      The newest generation of DSP: ZFX-IV
      The ZFX-IV DSP effects processor boasts amazing power and clarity, upgrading everything from sound to functionality and operability over previous ZFX versions. By using 32-bit floating-point processing, the Zoom G5 can produce amplifier sounds that are more realistic than ever before.

      Looper function with 60-second phrase recording/overdubbing
      The Zoom G5 effects processor’s Looper capabilities include 60 seconds of phrase recording and overdubbing. The sound-on-sound function allows you to layer guitar sounds as many times as you want in real time and use looped sounds as simple backing tracks. You can even create a full band feel with the built-in drum machine and DSP effects for a live solo.

      Your personal drummer
      Every guitar player needs a drummer, and with the Zoom G5 processor you can choose from over 40 different rhythm patterns, including 4, 8 and 16-beat, shuffle and many others. The tap key also makes it easy to set tempo and start a one-man jam session anytime.

      USB audio interface for DAW recording
      The Zoom G5 operates as an audio interface, letting you record directly to your computer via USB. All of your sound settings used during rehearsals or live performances can be recorded to your favorite DAW such as the included Steinberg Cubase LE recording software. The pedal’s direct monitoring capability eliminates any latency issues, assuring realistic studio conditions and hassle-free operation.

      Balanced XLR output for DI use
      With its built-in XLR output, you can avoid DI boxes completely and directly connect the Zoom G5 to any mixing console and maintain a balanced, high quality signal. Its convenient Pre/Post switch can direct an effected sound to the main outputs while sending the original analog bass guitar signal directly to the XLR output without passing through an A/D converter.

      Accurate, real-time Tuner function
      The G5 pedal’s Tuner function offers smooth, real-time response with precise guitar tuning accuracy. Whether you’re in the middle of a performance or practicing alone in your room, simply hold down the pedal’s center footswitch to start getting your strings back in tune. In addition, the Zoom G5’s LCD displays and LED indicators make the Tuner easy to see on a dark stage, where you can also mute the output to tune silently.

      Super-low noise design
      The Zoom G5’s super-low noise design virtually eliminates background noise and the ZNR noise reduction removes feedback and other unwanted sounds, providing you with clear tones, along with natural decay and reverb tails.

      Super-fast patch change speed
      With the Zoom G5 pedalboard’s amazing 1.6ms patch change speed, you will never miss a beat. Change from rhythm playing to a solo in an instant by simply tapping a switch.

      Optional expression pedal and footswitch
      Connect an optional FP02 expression pedal to the Zoom G5 and control volume in real time. Use an optional FS01 footswitch to tap the tempo used for the drum machine, looper and effects. You can also use an FS01 to mute the Delay/Reverb input or turn Delay Hold on or off.

      Free Edit&Share software for Mac/PC
      Zoom’s Edit&Share software, which is available as a free download for the G5, allows you to create, edit and save your personalized amp and effect settings on your computer. Use its radar charts to access visual representations of each preset’s tone characteristics, amp/effect sorting feature to easily locate your sounds and drag-and-drop options to rearrange patches for editing purposes. With Edit&Share, you can download the latest patches online, as well as share your patches with others.

      Great Tool
      Product Rating
      What is your opinion of this product?
      This is fun. I've used the pods and Behringer for live and recording. The Behringer comes close to having that tube feel to it but you can't program effects other than what's offered. I got the G5 based on reviews here and what's on youtube. I needed something with a bit more freedom to edit and use on stage since we don't run amps because of the trouble mixing them in the house. After speeding some time adjusting the presets and then making my own, I dig this thing. Made extremely well and excellent price. As other's have suggested, use the Zoom noise reduction at the front of your chain. it cleans it up tons. I really like the Bogner model. Pretty much spot on. If you need a modeler with some room to edit for your live gigs going straight into the house, get this toy. I'm still having fun making my own patches with this.

      Plays well with others
      What is your opinion of this product?
      My favorite toy. So many functions, so little time. Seriously though, read the manual. If you don't, you may miss functions you never knew you have. I wrote the review "As Advertised" on the Trademark 30. To continue, When using the effects on the G5, I let the T30 handle the distortion/overdrive/amp selection. I'm not a big distortion fan and prefer a clean-overdriven sound as opposed to thrash metal distortion. So, not all the amp modeling and distortion settings will work for me. The rest of the effects sound great running through the effect-loop of the T30. Of course I have not used/listened to everything, even a year after purchase. Time will tell. Well worth the price. There is a learning curve with multi-effects and effect loops and more than one way to hook them together-lots of info on line.

      Shockingly Good!
      What is your opinion of this product?
      I've owned a bunch of multi-effects, keept the zoom g9.2tt because, for the money, it had the most features and most useable sound after upgrading the tubes. But it's falling apart after much abuse, the midi connectors got munched, the 3D pedal is loose, one switch on the back needs cleaning or replacement. The G9 served its purpose, was an amazing deal, and will be saved for parts or parted out. So, I got the G5. Wow. Knowing the g9 for so long, this thing was easy to navigate. The sound is 100% better for the desktop/practice experience and I see it being used in any setting with the right PA, no guitar amp! I read a few complaints about the layout and buttons. It's a bit tricky, but once you learn the interface, it's better than the g9, but very...sensitive, so you have to hit the changes right and setup your patches right. The possibilities are profound and I haven't really dove into it deep, deep. I have no GAS for another pedal...!

      The Zoom G5 Is Worth Every Penny
      What is your opinion of this product?
      I usually don't write reviews but the G5 deserves it !!! It is easy and fun to program and nails any sound you want with a nice tube feel and sound. Oh, and by the way, the tube booster really works and an excellent feature. To really get your sound you should program it for yourself and that is a blast programming from a computer or the unit itself. I got this G5 to run through my Fender Hot Rod Deville 4x10 for super clean to blues to classic rock using a custom Strat with the Duncan Hot Rod Humbucker set using StewMac's P switch. This combination and the G5 nails any sound. Sure I got the Marshall Stuff downstairs but to get that nice glassy bell like strat tone, I gotta use this rig for sure. Don't be fooled, the G5 can easily get the Marshall grind and far beyond. All this at this price, no way to beat it !!! Well built and metal tough, you got the 'Z' pedal for control , tube booster, pro sound, ready for flight for beginner or pro, stereo and direct outs, plus USB !!!

      Zoom G5 - The tube really makes a difference!
      What is your opinion of this product?
      Let me start off with what I can compare this to. I have owned Boss, Line 6 , Zoom G3 and Digitech processors. I hate digital distortion but I play in a rock worship band in church and cranking a tube amp is not an option. So I tried every analog "amp-in-a box" distortion pedal I could order and return! Wampler, Tech 21, etc. Being a lead singing lead guitarist, I couldn't stand the "tap dancing" that you have to do for a solo without coming off the mic by looking down at the pedals . I decided to try the Zoom G5. Unlike the G3, The G5 has dedicated buttons (3 per bank) that can be assigned to clean, crunch and lead or whatever you want. The tube "booster" made me want to try this one, because another reviewer said that he leaves the tube on all the time to warm up the digital sound. It really does work! I set the boost knob to 10:00 and the tone to 12:00. A/B with the boost switch and you’ll hear the tube warmth. Without the tube I would have returned this one too, but with it, it sounds pretty darn realistic. It is really easy too program, and has more effects than you’ll ever need . I’m definitely going to keep this one !

      This pedal is like having a guitar effect shopping spree
      Your general opinion of this product.
      When I purchase a piece of guitar equipment, I heavily rely on the collective reviews of others, especially if done online without trying the unit out first. I will include in this review some helpful information that I didn't find in reviews or the online manual, since I was swayed from purchasing this pedal years ago because of certain functions I thought it didn't have. Unlike what I thought the pedal could do, it can scroll, patch select, and every other function via foot switches, except a foot pedal tap/tempo, which can be added with an external pedal. There is a lot of mod information out there that may be unnecessary, if you understand that these functions can be selected with the pedal as is, and you accept that they have to be done with two switches at a time. My first multi-pedal ever was a Zoom 505, then I moved on to a floor POD, then I was incredibly disappointed that the older Zoom sounded far better than a modern Line 6 pedal. Later came the Boss ME-25...

      Great little multi-effects unit
      Your general opinion of this product.
      This pedal comes with some cheezy sounds from the factory but once you start programming your own patches you'll see that it's not hard to get exactly what you're looking for from it. Whatever tone you want can be found. I use this pedal professionally and have had no issues with it in the 3 months that I've had it. The only thing that I would like to see from Zoom is a version that allows more patches per band, 3 is not enough for some of us and when you switch banks it also switches the patch at the same time, most of us can get by with 3 patches per bank though. You also have quick easy access to stomp box mode for whatever patch you're on. And programming this thing is a breeze! Setting patch levels is a breeze too! Kudos to Zoom for the ease of programming of this unit!
