Since introducing the 505 pedal in 1996, Zoom compact multi-effect processors have been highly acclaimed by guitarists all over the world. Representing the next standard for expressive tone in any style, Zoom is pleased to introduce the all-new G1N.
All-New Drive Sounds
The first thing you notice with the G1N is its totally new drive sounds that were developed using the state-of-the-art ZFX modeling technology. Featuring 15 amp and stomp-box models that faithfully replicate every detail of the classics, from gain settings to harmonic character, the G1N delivers natural expression from nuanced playing to total bone-sizzling shreds. And the new, original amp models designed especially by Zoom for the G1N will amaze.
It's never been easier to edit effects. Simply select the effect module with the selector knob then edit the value with the value knob. That's all there is to it. You can easily design your own tones to suit your music. Dedicated buttons for saving patches, a bank switcher and integrated rhythm patterns make fine-tuning your sounds a breeze. A chromatic tuner is available simply by stepping on the two pedal buttons simultaneously. And with bright LED indicators, you'll get easy operation even on a dark stage.

Xtreme Artist Patches
The G1N has 9 types of presets that simulate the sounds of rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and many more. Plus, there are 21 types of artist patches designed by amazing guitar heroes like Michael Amott, Kiko Loureiro, Richie Kotzen, Rob Caggiano, Mike Stone and Matt Bachand, so you can use these professionally designed guitar sounds in your music. Also, there are 10 types of presets for any style of guitar playing, such as power chords, arpeggio, lead, cutting and much more. You can even save 40 patches you create in the G1N's user memory.
True Tube Modeling
Replicating the high frequency overtones created by the distortion effect of tube amplifiers is made possible by Zoom's original 32-bit, ZFX-3 processor. This allows the frequency response for our G1N to extend to an amazing 20Hz through 40kHz with 96 kHz sampling rates. You get the rich harmonics of distortion specific to various types of tube amps, made possible with 24-bit A/D/A conversion and the processing power that only our digital modeling technology can reproduce.
54 Studio-Quality Effects
A total of eight modules provide 54 effect types ranging from must-have historic sounds of DynaComp, Vox Wah, Crybaby Wah, to Harmonized Pitch Shifter, long delay and echo settings of up to 5 seconds, and many more. A multitude of high-performance choices opens up totally new creative possibilities.
Drum Machine with PCM Sound Sources
Realistic drum sounds derived from PCM sources are arranged in a variety of rhythm patterns for different musical genres. The 40 rhythm variations include the steady 8-beat of rock and pop, funky 16-beat, a jazzy 4-beat, some great shuffle for blues sessions, and many more choices. Rhythm training is a cinch, and tap input allows you to specify the tempo easily.
Studio-Quality, Ultra-Low-Noise Design
Specifications such as a signal-to-noise ratio of 110dB and noise floor of -98dBm demonstrate a level of performance that's not usually seen in units of this class. Background noise is a thing of the past, resulting in superbly transparent sound. Zoom's original noise reduction (ZNR) removes noise in playing pauses, while maintaining a natural release even on the tail of sustained notes.
Easy to Carry in a Gig Bag
Its compact size and lightweight design make the G1N ideal for those who want plenty of effects and great performance without having to carry a lot of gear. Plus, its durable, reinforced body can withstand the rigors of use on stage or on the road.
AC/DC Power Operation
You get 12 hours of continuous operation with four AA alkaline batteries when using the G1N anywhere from the studio to the stage. Or plug in the included AC adapter for extended use.
Optional Footswitch and Expression Pedal Add Versatility and Control
When you connect the optional footswitch (FS01, sold separately), you can switch patch banks or perform tap tempo input with your foot. You can also connect the optional expression pedal (FP02) to control effect parameters such as wah, pitch shift, volume, drive gain, modulation rate, mixing balance of delay and reverb in real time. With either option, you add a new dimension of control and versatility to this exceptional new pedal.
