Product Description

Introducing the G Series from Zoom. G2 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.

Two separate algorithms for live performance and studio work. Click to enlarge.

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.

32-bit architecture ensures outstanding performance and allows smooth and detailed signal processing.

Power with AC adapter or with four AA batteries.

Control effect parameters in real time by adding the FP02 expression pedal.

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 unit 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.

Two-way power allows use just about anywhere
Thanks to its circuit design optimized for low voltage operation, the unit will run for more than 7.5 hours on a set of four IEC R6 (size AA) batteries. A separately available AC adaptor (AC-0006) can be plugged in for extended studio work, whereas on stage you never need to worry about AC power.

Optional foot switch allows versatile remote operation
With an optional foot switch (FS01) you can set tempos for delay time and modulation rate. Other selectable functions include bank switching, drum machine start/stop, and delay hold on/off switching.

Expression pedal adds further versatility to your guitar play
The optional expression pedal (FP02) is a great way to control effect parameters in real time. Control the vintage wah, pitch shift, or adjust the volume dynamics. Go beyond conventional pedal effects by varying drive gain or modulation rate, and adjusting the mixing ratio of delay and reverb.

The effects sound good, and the built-in tuner is great.
Blake Garretson
I have tried, bought and sold many different effects pedals and the G2 Zoom is the best I have found.

When you have a beguinner rocker in the family you have to find a way to develop his rhythm technique. Throw out the metronome and get this cool pedal. It's easy as heck to use and as fun as the day is long! The drum patterens are varied and really sound good, not like electronic drums and there are lots of interesting guitar sounds and effects. Highly recommended!

I have tried, bought and sold many different effects pedals and the G2 Zoom is the best I have found.

Great variations of sounds from clean acoustic to weird.

The drum machine is the best, different rhythms, volume, tone, can be easily adjusted.

The box is made of metal and is solid.

Get the G2 with the four knobs it is a lot easier to set up than the other Zoom models, read the instructions and go jam.

I've had the G2 box for about 2 months now. I loved it and then I started hating it, and now I love it again. First love was all about discovering the vast collection of sounds and amp modulations this box can put out in addition to featuring a good tuner, excellent drum machine, portable headphone amp and an amazing bypass. Then, I started to hate it because much of the effects novelty wore off and all I wanted was to easily find certain sounds quickly without stomping through the endless tonal variations. So, it sat for a couple of weeks. I've rediscovered it recently, and I'm in love with it again and this time I think it's going to last. Why? Well, I decided to read the manual. :-) Do yourself a favor, read the manual. It's not that complicated, but I think you'll benefit greatly by actually reading it. This box is a solid machine and it will blow you away with its many capabilities. Need a noise reducer - got it. EQ - check. Just need a phaser - got it. Compressor - got it. On and on. Use it as you need it. It's a great, well built multi-tool and very friendly to other pedals in your chain. I do wish the input and output were on the sides instead of the top though, but, hey...

This version of the zoom has a ton of features, and it is really rugged. I was wary of the G1 since it is plastic, but the G2 is solidly built with a decent metal body. The effects sound good, and the built-in tuner is great. The best part about the G2 is the price. I can't believe all the features for what this thing costs.

I bought the G2 because of wanting some quality effects without purchasing a whole collection pedals or buying an amp with effects. I am sure the purist will point out faults with the G2 but for the hobbyist it is a great device. Makes my crappy amp seem decent, the built in drums is a bonus, tuner works well, one box, easy to use, sounds great, seems sturdy, Read the Manual (save yourself some headache). Fun to play with, for the price you can't go wrong.

Recently purhcased this item, and am still getting through the different settings on it. There are so many effects, and different sounds that you can get out of this machine. The drum machine built in is great for practicing with. I would recommend this to anyone novice, or professional guitarist looking to add effects. Its inexpensive, and has a multitude of effects.

Great value for the money. I have spent hours experimenting with all the different effects you get from this pedal. It's amazing how much excitement it adds to playing guitar. The pedal was recommended to me by a profressional guitar player.

I thought the combination of a professional instrument (JS1200) with a groovy lil' amp (Marshall Valvestate 30) was as good as I could get, until I bought this thing!

The Zoom G2 makes even mundane licks and riffs sound kool. From the heaviest distortion to the smoothest chorus, to flange and just far-out silliness, this thing does it all. I love it, and won't play without it anymore. The ability to create your own sounds by mixing up a preset is a huge bonus - I must've created half a dozen different distortion tones and a few really glassy clean tones, and that's probably nothing compared to what others have been able to do.

The bottom line: it's *insanely* cheap, it *will* improve your playing, and you *will* more than likely never need anything else for your music unless you do all your playing in the studio, in which case you wouldn't be looking at this product on Amazon in the first place. Gotta be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
