Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've always like Zoom products. The G1X4 is now replacing my Zoom 505. Thought I get on board with something more modern. It seems very easy to use, however, there are alot more entries to go through when editing patches. But so far, I like the patches and sounds of this model.As far as zZounds goes. This was my first purchase from them. I have bout alot of stuff from the other guys in Indiana and New Jersey. I found zZounds through a search and liked what I saw. In today's world, not everyone has a few thousands laying around that doesn't need to be anywhere. And for me staying, almost debt free is a must. Sometimes, folks need that extra month to grab the gear they want. And with this order, I got it for 4 payments and not 3 and it was cheaper in total to boot. Also my order arrived in two days. So far I have enjoyed shopping here. I'm really looking forward to getting more gear now that I have found a site that stretches the payments out to 4, 6, 8 months. Those little extras in life that was just out of reach for my budget is now in sight. And with that I want to thank those here at zZounds for making this possible. Not every one of us musicians are making money at gigging and having a home studio during this "Lock Down" is a must to keep from going insane. I hope this little review helps someone. This Model, really is packed with alot of good stuff for it's size and price. I'm amazed at how much the digital world has changed since the first introduction of read more my Zoom 505 in 1995 and the Zoom G1X4 now. Man I'm getting old!
