Product Description

The Zoom G2Nu guitar multi effects pedal takes the performance, tone and functionality of the incredibly popular G2 pedal and incorporates five more years of Zoom's engineering innovation. The ensuing G2Nu offers a variety of new and practical features along with enhanced ease of use, improved tone technology and patches created by legendary guitar virtuoso Steve Vai.

Features
- 30 types of redesigned drive sounds

- USB interface allows direct recording to a computer

- Direct Mode optimal for recording

- Large 1.9-inch LCD panel supports new intuitive interface

- ZFX-3 recreates tube amp characteristics

- 96kHz sampling and 24-bit A/D/A conversion

- 100 preset guitar sounds + 100 user patches

- 10 patches designed by renowned guitarist Steve Vai

- 83 high-quality effect types

- 6-band graphic equalizer

- Auto-chromatic tuner with LED indication

- Integrated drum machine with PCM sound sources

- Looping function records 5-second phrases

- Ultra-low noise design: signal-to-noise ratio of 120dB and noise floor of -100dB

- Extremely fast 5 ms patch change speed

- Optional footswitch (FS01) available

- Includes Cubase LE 5 and Edit & Share software

- Heavy-duty construction and slim size

- Runs on AA batteries, AD adapter or USB bus power

The revamping started with the drive sounds. Twenty types of guitar amps and stomp boxes offer finely tuned sonic qualities including gain settings and harmonic character. The Zoom G2Nu also features 100 preset guitar sounds, 10 of which have been created by world-renowned guitar master Steve Vai. Additional patches meticulously emulate famous rock sounds from the sixties and seventies as well as other famous artists.

The Zoom G2Nu can also operate as an audio interface, letting you record directly to a computer via the built-in USB port. Plus, Zoom's direct monitoring design eliminates latency problems and allows you to seamlessly capture any tone right on your favorite computer DAW. A large 1.9-inch LCD display and a new, more intuitive interface also allow easier navigation during both live and recording sessions.

Of course, the G2Nu still maintains the original features that made the G2 so popular: advanced ZFX-3 sound engine, 100 user patches + 100 presets, 83 guitar effect types, on-board auto-chromatic tuner, integrated drum machine and a host of other practical and inventive features. When it comes to expressive sound and premium performance, the G2Nu epitomizes the progress of Zoom's technical expertise and tonal proficiency. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Zoom products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Surprise! My best purchase of the year"
Sound: For my purposes -- clean jazz tones with delay and modulation -- the G2Nu sounds great and rates a 10. But I have experimented with the overdrive sounds and can't say I love them. Maybe I need to spend more time tweaking, but my initial impression is that the pedal could be better for bluesy breakup tones. For high-gain metal sounds, however, the G2Nu smokes. Too bad I have no use for those. Overall, I give the G2Nu a 10 for my specific needs but an 8 for anyone who's looking for bluesy OD sounds. Feature: Again, for my purposes, this little box has more than I expected. Great delay and modulation effects, decent reverb, plenty of patch storage, and extremely easy editing on the LCD screen. Ease of Use: Hardly needed to read the manual. Quality: I thought the chromed plastic looked cheesy in the photos, but in real life this unit is rock solid. The housing is all metal, and the metal jacks are chassis mounted. Other MFX units I've seen in this price range (and even above) have cheap plastic jacks mounted to the PCB. The G2Nu's metal switches are also very solid and operate smoothly. Value: I bought a factory resealed model at a discount, and it turned out to be my best value purchase in a long time. I own boutique pedals that cost more than this all-in-one box, and those boutiques do only one or two things. I also own boutique tube amps and can be quite the cork sniffer. I can't believe I'm so happy with such an inexpensive little device as the G2Nu. The Wow Factor: For me, the G2Nu is a 10 in this category because it turned out to be exactly what I was looking for but didn't think existed: something very compact that fits easily in my gig bag and also sounds great. I've tried other portable units that score great on compactness but sound horrible. Other units sound great but are not all that compact. The G2Nu fits the bill on both counts. Overall: I was skeptical of this purchase because some years ago I bought a used Zoom G1 pedal that I quickly sold because it looked, felt, and sounded cheap. I was not inclined to try another Zoom product after that. Nor was I thrilled by other small MFX units out there. The G2Nu is the first one I've tried that is both very compact and great sounding. I use it primarily for headphone practice and recording but also plan to use it live through a PA. For my simple needs, I'm thrilled with the sound, build, features, and simplicity of this box. The Zoom G3 is the newer model and is all the rage now on the gear forums -- and I'm very tempted to check it out -- but I'm so happy with the older G2Nu that I'm not going to fix what ain't broke.
