Find your tone. With the Zoom G1 FOUR Multi-Effects Pedal, you have a whole host of tone-shaping tools at your disposal. Over 60 built-in effects with 13 amp models let you explore a new world of sonic performance. Plus, with Zoom’s free Guitar Lab software, you can delve into the depths of a huge library of additional content and downloadable effects.
The G1 FOUR features an integrated Looper and 68 rhythmic patterns that can be used in conjunction with each other. The Looper is simple to use, and lets you record up to 30-seconds (or 64-beats) of high-quality sound. The perfect platform for creating new and dynamic multi-part arrangements. And when it comes to live performance, you can choose between two intuitive operation modes to seamlessly switch between sounds and patches on stage.
When it comes to power, you have three options – batteries, an AC adapter (not included), or USB bus power (USB also used for software connectivity and firmware updates). With four standard alkaline batteries, you can take advantage of a huge 18 hours of continuous use, enough for even the longest of gigs or recording sessions. So if you’re still hunting for the perfect tone, plug into a G1 FOUR and discover the endless combinations you can create in an instant.
Make the stage your own. With the Zoom G1 FOUR Multi-Effects Pedal, you can take advantage of over 60 effects with both traditional and boutique bloodlines. Everything from distortion and drive to ring-modulation and even sitar simulation. The G1 FOUR puts you in control with an almost endless list of capabilities.
As well as a vast collection of effects, the G1 FOUR gives you 13 classic amplifier and cabinet simulations to give you that huge stage sound no matter where you are. From bell-like cleans to searing leads, these simulations are precise recreations based on the legendary tones of leading amplifier designs.
You can also make use of an integrated Looper, giving you the ability to record up to 30-seconds/64-beats of playing to create exciting and dynamic multi-part arrangements. The Looper is activated using the dedicated button, whilst the REC/PLAY footswitch handles recording and playback, with the STOP footswitch to cancel both. You can overdub your loops with ease by simply pressing the REC/PLAY switch during playback. You can also use the G1 FOUR’s 68 built-in rhythm patterns with the Looper, giving you a diverse range of sonic possibilities with different time signature choices.
Intelligently designed with powerful features. The G1 FOUR features an incredibly-useful Auto-Save function. This instantly backs up your patches and level settings, meaning you’ll never lose the sound you’re working on. Plus, two performance modes provide seamless sound-switching when you’re performing. The PRESELECT mode lets you jump between patches without affecting the patch you’re currently playing, whilst the STOMP mode allows you to activate or bypass individual effects with a tap of your foot. And when you want to use your G1 FOUR on your desktop, the ergonomic control panel design allows you to dial in tones and adjust settings with precision, perfect for studio and computer-based use.
Experiment and Create with Zoom Guitar Lab
Get more out of your pedal. With the free Zoom Guitar Lab software, you have instant access to an ever-expanding collection of artist patches, effects, and more. Guitar Lab gives you the ability to manage and backup all of your patches, and create new patches with an endless amount of effect combinations. You can even load new effects or delete old effects from your device, letting you customise your pedal to suit your needs.
Versatile Power Options
You can power your G1 FOUR with one of three ways. Using a Zoom AD-16 AC power adapter (not included), with four AA-size batteries, or via USB bus power. When using batteries, the G1 FOUR can be used for up to 18 hours with standard alkaline cells (with the backlit LCD switched off), giving you plenty of time to create and perform before having to change them out. The USB port removes the need for both batteries or an AC power adapter, and provides simple connectivity to your Zoom Guitar Lab software, as well as being used for firmware updates.
