I have always been a fan of Zoom products, as they have always made great things at affordable prices.

My previous digital multi-effects pedal was a Zoom G1X, and I have recently upgraded it to its new version, the Zoom G1Xon.


At first glance, it seems like a trip back to the '80s. But trust me, it's the best budget-friendly multi effects pedals you can buy.

Here is a great review of the pedal by GuitarWorld.

Here are the main features of this amazing pedal:

  • 100 (!!!) effects
  • 5 effects can be chained
  • 100 memory slots for user created effect patches
  • Built in expression pedal, with the ability to control not just wah, but also other effects
  • Auto save function
  • Swap effects locations for easy organization
  • Silent patch selection while keeping the current patch operational
  • Built in chromatic tuner supporting all sorts of guitar tunings
  • Looper feature for the recording of up to 30 seconds audio with seamless start and end times
  • 68 built-in drum rhythm patterns
  • Aux input jack for connection of personal music players
  • Backlit LCD panel
  • Runs on 4 AA batteries, with alkaline battery life of 20 hours
  • USB port for firmware updates

For around $70, you can't do any better than this. The great thing about digital effects pedals is that it compiles literally thousands of $$$ worth of individual pedals into one, and the Zoom G1Xon does it with great sound quality.

If you want to explore the world of guitar effects, or are looking for a compact guitar effects solution with awesome sound quality and features, look no further.
