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