I have a Zoom G3 and in comparison the Zoom has higher fidelity but slightly less dynamics on the amp tones. May be the Zoom's 32 bit processing vs the BOSS's 24 bit? It has all the amps of the $500 floor unit too! The Marshall Plexi "Brown Sound" is the best I've ever heard! EVH true tone there. Great tracking on the Gtr to MIDI coversion too. Lots of EQ's on this and great FX. Large FX chain too of everything most want/need. Best acoustic sim I have ever heard! Worth way more than the $300 price IMO.
