Crafting great-sounding guitar tones has never been easier, thanks to Zoom’s G1X FOUR multi-effects processor. Add dimension and polish to your playing with more than 70 traditional and boutique effects. Achieve real-time control over volume, wah, delay, and pitch effects with the integrated expression pedal. Dial in everything from squeaky-clean to high-gain tones with 13 classic amplifier and cabinet models. Keep the beat with 68 built-in drum patterns, while you create multi-part arrangements with a 30-second looper. The G1X FOUR allows you to use up to five effects simultaneously, and you can save up to 50 user-created patches for instant recall. The value-packed G1X FOUR is great for practice and performance alike.
The Zoom G1X FOUR comes loaded with more than 70 traditional and boutique effects. Add dimension to your sound with delays and reverbs. Give it a polished sheen with a chorus, flanger, or phaser. Or reach for something more esoteric like a ring modulator, pitch-shifting delay, or a sitar simulation — it’s all in there. There are also 13 classic amplifier and cabinet models onboard, covering everything from squeaky-clean tranquility to high-gain anarchy. Use up to five effects simultaneously, chained together in any order. And when you’ve got everything dialed in, you can save up to 50 user-created patches.
Metronomes are great for keeping time, but they’re not very inspiring. That’s why the G1X FOUR includes 68 built-in drum patterns. These great-sounding rhythms give you plenty to jam along to, boasting multiple time signatures — 4/4, 3/4, and more. When we ran the G1X FOUR through its paces here at Music Experience, we found the built-in rhythm patterns to be one of our favorite features — they’re a lot of fun!
Built-in drum patterns are great for keeping the beat, but they don’t do much for harmonic context when you’re practicing. But thanks to the Zoom G1X FOUR’s onboard looper, you can lay down a chord progression, loop it, then play over it. You can record and loop up to 30 seconds of CD-quality audio, which is more than enough to craft dynamic multi-part arrangements. And don’t think that the usefulness of the G1X FOUR’s looper is limited to practice sessions — it’s an awesome performance tool too!
The Zoom G1X FOUR feature over 70 effects and amp models, looper and drum machine. Plus, access ZOOM Guitar Lab’s additional library of downloadable effects. Plug in and be amazed!
