From Our Research Team:
Your 1-stop Tone Machine!Why lug around a massive pedalboard, when Zoom's G5 all-in-one guitar multi-effects pedal gives you all of the killer tones and vital performance tools you need? From classically clean and chiming to blues-style crunch and full metal tube stacks, you'll find any amp sound you need in the G5. Add to that 123 amazing stompbox effects (you can use up to nine at a time) plus a real tube drive circuit to go with its amazing onboard DSP, and the G5 lets you tap into an endless source of tone shaping possibilities. And that's just the beginning of what you can do with a Zoom G5 guitar effects pedal.
Zoom G5 Guitar Amp Emulation and Multi-effects Pedal at a Glance:
Your total guitar tone effects and amp-simulation toolbox
Loaded with over 123 models of world-famous stompbox effects, 22 stunning amp models, and Zoom's most advanced tube modeling engine to date, the Zoom G5 guitar multi-effects pedal is any tone-loving guitarist's treasure trove. The G5's extremely simple stompbox-style user interface makes loading up to nine effects at once (and controlling them in real time) a piece of cake. Simple 3-knob controls and large LCD screens also help to make the G5 totally intuitive to operate. If there's a guitar tone in your head, then you can create it with a Zoom G5 guitar effects pedal from Sweetwater.
Turn up the heat with Zoom's built-in Tube Booster
Without a doubt, the sigmoid-curve-clipping tube emulation and ZFX-IV DSP chip loaded in the G5 makes its digital emulation among the more convincing tone engines out there. But do you know what sounds even more realistic than any tube emulation? Real tubes, of course. That's why Zoom also equipped their G5 with a real 12AX7 tube circuit. With the press of a footswitch, you can instantly kick in an extra 16dB of pure tube drive, taking your tone over the top.
Z-pedal gives you 3D control over your effects
Cooler than any conventional expression pedal, the Z-pedal Zoom outfitted their G5 guitar multi-effects rig with gives you a ton of realtime control over your sounds. In addition to standard up and down motion, the G5's Z-pedal lets you control additional parameters via both left and right motion. That means you can control up to three realtime parameters with a single expression pedal. What's more, the G5 comes with 20 amazing effects specifically designed to let you get the most out of your G5's Z-pedal control.
Onboard looper and drums give you tons of performance options
As if all of these amazing effects, amp models, and tone-shaping tools weren't enough, Zoom decided to go the extra mile with their G5 multi-effects pedal, outfitting it with an easy-to-use 60-second phrase looper. In addition to simple layering, the G5's looper lets you perform sound-on-sound recording, allowing you to layer take after take. And thanks to the versatile onboard drum machine, you can add drums and other backing tracks, laying down entire sound ideas directly on your Zoom G5.
The I/O you need both live and in your studio
With all of these killer effects and realtime parameter controls, you might suspect that Zoom built the G5 guitar effects pedal to be an awesome live tool... and you'd be right. But that's not all it's good for. In addition to being able to run its XLR direct output straight to a live console, you can easily use it to feed your recording interface. Don't have a recording interface? No problem - the G5 can connect straight to your computer via USB for direct recording. And since it comes with a copy of Steinberg Cubase LE, you don't even need to have a favorite recording software to get the most out of your Zoom G5.

Wow...everything you could ask for in a pedal
by Finn from USAThis pedal sounds great and is easy to use. Its easy to edit patches and tweak your sound on the pedal and even easier when editing your patches on the computer via usb cable. No problem to upload o... read more [+]r download patches. This pedal is really user friendly. They have alot of great patches on the pedal and some that I have no use for but are fun to play around with to see what this pedal is capable of. User patches for the G5 can be found on the web and patches for the G3 will also work on this unit. When I first got this it was so freaking loud....hint: go to your global settings and adjust the master level. This pedal is worth way more than what it is sold for. Bottom line is the Zoom G5 is an awesome pedal. close [-]

Review of my new Zoom G5
by Steve from Long Island NYI just got my new G5 from Sweetwater. Let me first off by saying I own many pedals and multi effect units. Some are very high end like my axe-fx II and my Kemper. Some others I own are the Boss GT-100... read more [+]. So the question is where does this unit fall into. I will break it down under three categories. Price, Sound and feature set.I do wish to say I have only had it for a day.In terms of price it is a great value.You get a lot of bang for your buck. I could get one type of pedal that could coast this much alone. In terms of sounds as in most multi effect products some sounds are better then others. After some tweaking you can make some average sounds that come with the unit sound better. The unit can be patch driven. Lets say a Guns and Roses sound. However to me the unit shines when you don't use these and just use the effects. Lets say a Marshall 1959 amp with a tape delay, Here you can do pre and post sounds. There is also deep editing if you like. I really like the tube drive section which really warms some sounds up very well, and does make a difference. You can run it through your Mac or PC. There is a good editor that you can download for free. You get a looper which is good at 60 seconds. You also get Cubebase LE software. I will not use this myself as I have better software for my needs, but this is great that you get it for free. When you just want to practice this unit is great.

I found it very user friendly. The sounds are overall good. for the money
I think this is a real nice package. My one small gripe is they don't include a USB cable. They are so cheap it makes no sense not to include one. However most people own them so this is no deal breaker.
Check it out at your local store and decide for yourself. I would recommend buying it from Sweetwater as there prices are great and there is no sales tax and free shipping.The other plus is Sweetwater has free Tech support if you desire it. Good luck and have fun wit this product if you get one. close [-]
