Product Description

This is Zoom's all-new, top-of-the-line guitar box, with a metal case for onstage use and abuse. Besides the VAMS (Zoom's Variable Architecture Modeling System) amp and preamp emulations, there are 69 effect types - use up to 9 at once! The "Easy Edit" knobs and MIDI implementation make live and studio use a breeze. There are 160 built-in Zoom patches and 80 user programmable patches.

This is a Zoom product, so you know there are still more features. How about a 25 second phrase sampler? The sampler also has a mode called "Jam Play," which lets you record 12 seconds of audio and play it back at a slower speed - without changing the pitch! Cool!

When you factor in the built-in expression pedal and the large LED display, you have a formidable tool for making some awesome guitar sounds. This box is for all guitarists looking for a multi-effects pedal.

"The real thing vs. GFX=8"
Sound: I have a jcm 900 half stack that I've used live for years. I use an Se-50 and dbx 242 for effects and eq. I also own the GFX-8 plugged into the clean channel of a carvin belair. There is no way, no how I can get the jcm to sound as good as the gfx/belair combo. I've tweaked till my fingers went numb. I can't beleive I'm using digital distortion and loving it. Side by side there is no comparison. The gfx provides touch sensitive tone with masive distortion that gets even better when you crank it. That's the bottom line, I love the other features but the tone is unbelievable. Overall: I'm getting another one for backup. That's got to be the ultimate compliment.

"Great sounds, great capabilities, CREATE YOUR OWN SOUND!!"
Sound: Awesome sound comming out of this beast. It takes a while to get exactly what you want, but thats the thing your getting exactly what you want so it's worth the time. Feature: Great MIDI stuff. Wonderful for transfering patches and what not. Also get the best sound from this by tweeking it to the decimal. Quality: GREAT!! Looks like a monster. I mean all metal construction. And it has this nifty grip thing on the pedal that I think you can like take it off to rinse. But it'll never come off while playing. My pedal is on its second owner and it's holding up perfect. Value: It's worth every penny you'll invest in it. It sounded great through a lil 10 watt amp, and it sounds wonderfull out of a 120 watt. It's unbeatable. Manufacturer Support: Support is great. The reason it is, is because I never needed it. Not one problem in two years owning it. The Wow Factor: Oh well sex appeal towards it is great. Listening to the demo off the cd thats included will make you love it without touching it. Overall: 2 years owning it, haven't looked for any replacement. Great for playing gigs. Stands exactly where it should because of its weight. So you won't be dragging it when walking around. The power plug is really good because while it does have htat big black box for it, it the actual 2 prong thing comes out through an extention from it. Great sounds, great capabilities, CREATE YOUR OWN SOUND!!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
