To much of my surprise I have found that this little unit does all that I need and so much more. This is a pint size all in one effects pedal that can give you a plethora of available modulation and effects sounds. You get an assortment of amps sounds as well as a great sounding bank of effects to go along with those amps tones. This pedal does so much that it is hard to believe that it has only a price tag of $9. That is a lot of features and sounds for a pedal that is basically the price of a single effect Boss pedal of some sort.
Zoom G2 Features:
24-bit A/D/A conversion
20Hz - 40kHz flat responce
16 amp/stomp modeling
9 effect modules
54 effect types
40 user patch + 40 factory patch
This pedal is a very inexpessive pedal that can do a load of operation with a price point that is very hard to beat. I think of this little pedal as a budget friendly Line 6 POD pedal. This little unit does so much but that price is so low that it is hard to pass up. Especially during these tough economic times there needs to be something out there that deleivers the tone and sounds for a low price. This pedal has so many options and suprisingly sound pretty decent for what it is doing.
You can pick this pedal up for right at around $99 which is a heck of a price if you ask me. You can't get a lot lot these days for $99 and t get something like this with all the options it has for this price is astonishing. I would recommend this to anyone who needs an all in one pedal for effects and sounds for under $100. This is a fun pedal for someone who is on a very tight budget and needs an all in one pedal. This is not a pedal for the forum gear geeks who plays in their basements and have more expensive gear than most professionals.
Great value for money!
Good quality connections.
Sound editing is made directly on the device.
Very easy to use: experienced people can avoid reading the manual.
I used it with a Mexico Standard Strat and a Peavey MX all-tube amp.
The sound is fully ok.
You'll find many patches on the web.
They are often a good start for sound editing. You can tune them depending on your taste and your gear.
I bought it for my daughter who wanted to learn guitar.
Being a good daddy, I tried it out before giving it to her.
I'm impressed by the quality of this product. I only tried the factory presets without editing anything. The design is nice, the housing seems to be sturdy, the small tuner and the drum machine are convenient to play at home. The sound is very surprising considering the price. Of course, it sounds digital but usable in various applications. I'm even thinking about buying the version with expression pedal to have more fun.

in short, it was the box in his hands, the record in the other. in the quarter-hour is the beast mastery (unless you have a sea urchin IQ)
So simple, logical, clear manual happiness!
Then, soyont Clearly, for 95 euros was not a GT8 or ToneLab but some manufacturers should start to inquiter. Zoom brand with a product no real forward compared to their previous range.
I just spent a week making intensive use (with a Valvestate VS100).
I could settle sounds surprisingly precisions (for playing Hendrix or G.moore among others).
clear sound its very clear notemment with simultion Jazz roland chorus. and saturated sounds are precise and warm as I love them.
we must take time to adjust to the sonority p'tits onions research, but with the intuitive side of this multi-effect, it's a cinch.
chorus-type effects, flanger, and other reverb and / or delay can be set accurately (which is a plus compared to the previous range 505II)
I use it since December 2006, I am more happy, the possibility of adjustment of the volume and gain live like a real amp and are more.
the drum machine integrates (40 pattern), presents in my opinion the only advantage of the headphones work with a very good sound quality.
The metal case is Extremely robust. the batteries to consumption is quite reasonable (about 16 hours non-stop).
I will highly recommend it if you have a small budget for a bit more prfrez the version with expression pedal.
Zoom a Foit still offers us an unbeatable Qualitprix compared with a renewed quality this time (r ground if mi)!
god save the rock!

There is a small "screen" with 2 digits. The configuration is simple once one has memorized the meaning of shortcuts through the manual (eg "Ac" Vox AC30). If the principle is simple you turn the knobs and here it is very instinctive and you can hear the results simultaneously.
I like especially clear effects and crunches, distos are sometimes a little "synthéthiques" Some builders are presets but overall it's not top, if not downright horrible, but if you make your own sound or that we look on the internet there are really bluffing sounds. +1 For very typical amp models and really nice clean sounds! -1 For distos especially some that sound like a synth 80's
Two months that I have and I use it all the time, to give my guitar to play with headphones, I carry, I obviously plays amp, I register on PC, I do not separate myself more! I hesitated with the Korg but this one has more possibilities such as useful rhythm patterns with respect to G1 there are more effects and is more complete. I really like it a lot so I put him 10 everywhere!
