THE ZOOM G5N | Multi-Effects Processor

The G5n comes loaded with 100 beautifully-crafted and newly assembled DSP effects, plus 26 of the most faithful and realistic amp/cabinet emulators. Pedal is in mint condition.


A wide array of effects
The G5n comes equipped with freshly-developed takes on not only the most-essential guitar sounds like overdrive, distortion, compression, EQ, delay, reverb, flanging, phasing, vibrato, and chorusing, but also unique multi-effects such as Seq Filter, Gold Drive, Reverse Delay, HD Hall, and OSC Echo.


Ultra-realistic amp/cabinet emulation
You can connect the G5n directly to a PA system or audio interface, using the 26 brand new onboard amp and cabinet emulators. Choose from 13 classic amp models like the ‘59 Fender Bassman, Diezel Herbert Channel 2, Marshall JCM800, Fender Twin Reverb, and MESA Boogie Mk3 , all newly and faithfully created to be adjusted exactly as you would with the knobs and switches of the real thing.


Pair your amp with one of the 13 newly-created
cabinet emulators to complete the sound, choosing
from cabinets like the Marshall 1960 A-type cabinet
(4x12” Celestion speakers), Fender ’65 Deluxe Reverb
(1x12” Jensen C-12K speakers), Mesa Boogie Mark 1
(1x12” ALTEC 417-8H speaker), or Bogner Ecstasy
cabinet (4x12” Celestion speakers).


Easy editing
Editing is simple and intuitive thanks to a unique, large overview display that allows you to quickly add, delete, or change the order of effects—something not easily accomplished with the average pedalboard. There are also four independent editing displays for zeroing in on the perfect sound, each bank providing the responsiveness and hands-on feel of a stompbox. Store up to 200 of your custom effects-chains as patches in memory, each instantly accessible at the touch of a footswitch.


Powerful pedals
The G5n's expression pedal gives you smooth real-time control over volume, tone, or selected effects parameters, with four stompbox-style footswitches to kick effects in and out on the fly. When you're ready to take a solo, get the bump you need with the G5n's output booster. And to synchronize rhythm patterns and delay times to the beat, just hit the G5n's dedicated Tap tempo footswitch to bring your sound in line.

Complex tonalities
It would take an arsenal of stompboxes, amplifiers, and speakers to duplicate everything you can do with a single G5n. With the release of firmware V2.0, G5n offers more efficient DSP power. This lets you chain up to nine effects more easily and in any order you like.  It's like having hundreds of fully loaded pedalboards in one compact, easy to use device.


68 built-in rhythm patterns make the G5n the perfect practice rig
and enable "one-man band" performances. A two-unit looper
function, which uses dedicated footswitches to start and stop phrases,
allows you to record and overdub phrases up to 80 seconds long through
the effects of your choice. Plus there's a built-in chromatic tuner, always
accessible at the touch of a footswitch—you can bypass the currently
selected patch while tuning, or mute the signal altogether.


The G5n can be easily integrated into any live performance or studio rig. In addition to a standard guitar input, there's an auxiliary stereo input for the connection of smartphones or music players, plus a dedicated headphone jack for silent practice and dual outputs for mono or stereo L/R connection to guitar amps, PA systems, and audio interfaces.
