The Zoom G5 Guitar Effects and amp Simulator combines the ease of a stompbox pedalboard and the power of a multi-effects pedal and USB audio interface, along with an extra LCD display/footswitch interface, Tube Booster, 3D Z-pedal and additional amp models and effects. While extremely easy to use, the G5 gives you the ultimate in control over your guitar tones for in stage and studio settings.
The G5 offers four large LCD displays and corresponding footswitches that form a graphical interface, allowing you to utilize up to nine stompbox and amp effects simultaneously. The interface has also been simplified with three control knobs for each display. This intuitive design makes creating, saving and rearranging the effect chain of your own sounds a breeze and provides easy navigation in live and studio settings.
The G5's Tube Booster footswitch allows you to add sudden power and intensity to your performance, particularly when soloing. While its Boost control can add up to 16 dB of amp overdrive, the Tone knob lets you control the EQ of your sounds with the added volume. The Tube Booster also offers extra power when recording directly to a line input.
The Z-pedal offers 3D action for a new sense of effect control. Not only can you press the pedal up and down as usual, you can also move it side to side. With 20 effects designed specifically for use with the Z-pedal, you can achieve complex tonal changes that are unlike any before. Furthermore, you can assign 3 parameters from any the 120 effects as you like using custom settings. With one foot on the pedal, take off into uncharted territory with creative effect sounds.
