Zoom G3X | Guitar Effects & Amp Simulator

Zoom G3X | Guitar Effects & Amp Simulator

With its built-in expression pedal, 94 effects and 22 amp and cabinet models, Zoom's G3X will have you coaxing amazing sounds from your guitar within minutes. Three integrated stompbox-style displays, each with its own dedicated foot switch and control knob, make programming a breeze. There's also an onboard chromatic tuner, a balanced line-level output, a USB port—even a drum machine and Looper. With the G3X, you'll be able to express yourself in ways you never thought possible.


The G3X provides a whopping 116 different onboard DSP effects and amp/cabinet models. 

These include compressors, noise gates, filters, equalizers, and wah effects, as well as boosters, overdrives, fuzzes, phasers and flangers, plus chorus, pitch shift, tremolo, vibrato—even ring modulation.


There are simulations of both classic and contemporary pedals such as the MXR Dynacomp and Distortion+, Moog MF-101, Ibanez TS808, Marshall Guv'nor, Fuzz Face, Big Muff, Pro Co Rat, ADA Flanger, and Boss OD-1, DS-1, Metal Face, and CE-1. Original effects include Zoom's Noise Reduction (ZNR) algorithm and ExtremeDS, which offers the most powerful gain of any distortion effect in the world. You'll also find 20 delays and natural-sounding reverbs here, including rooms, halls, arenas, plates, springs, and tape delay simulators, as well as dual effects such as chorus/delay, compressor/overdrive, and delay/reverb. 


The 22 amp models provided by the G3X include emulations of both vintage and modern tube and solid-state amplifiers from manufacturers like Fender, Marshall, Matchless, Mega Boogie, Sound City, Hiwatt, Orange, Two Rock, Diezel, and ENGL, each with its own distinct cabinet modeling that can be used to further alter the tonal quality. What's more, you can pair any amp model to any cabinet model for unusual, and often striking effects.


You can even match the output of a given amp/cabinet model to the actual setup you're playing through (options include Line, Combo Front, Stack Front, Combo Power Amp, and Stack Power Amp). 


The intuitive design of the G3X allows easy navigation in both live and studio settings and makes creating, saving, and rearranging effects a breeze. Three LCD screens, each with corresponding foot switches and parameter knobs, form a large graphical interface that allows you to view and edit multiple effects at a glance.  

Up to 6 effects can be used simultaneously, arranged in any order you like, and signal flow can be reversed at the touch of a button. 100 patch memories are provided for the storage of custom edited and chained multi-effects, all pre-loaded with useful factory settings. Changing patches is near-instantaneous and requires just a tap of a foot switch.


A standard ¼" input jack and passive/active switch allow you to plug any electric guitar into the G3X. Outputs are provided on dual ¼" (one stereo, one mono) and balanced XLR output jacks, enabling the unit to be connected to headphones, amplifiers or line-level devices (pre- or post-effect) such as external effects devices, recorders, and mixing boards. 


Only 4 AA batteries—either alkaline or rechargeable NiMH—are required for power, or you can use the supplied AC adapter. Battery life is up to 6 hours when using alkaline batteries, and an "Eco" setting automatically powers the unit off if unused for extended periods.
