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 my Zoom 505 in 1995 and the Zoom G1X4 now. Man I'm getting old!

"Massive fun-factor - Easy to use - Affordable - My choice for: "first guitar pedal""
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
I've played for over 40 years, I'm not a professional musician and rarely play out; but I do play a lot at home and IMO this is the best VALUE "name brand" guitar multi-FX pedal on the market. It's super affordable, very easy to use, sounds terrific, and is a total blast to play!No... this pedal is not perfect and not "pro quality", but that's not what it's about. IMO, this pedal is all about having FUN while playing your guitar and getting better.In fact, this is the FIRST of TWO guitar pedals I recommend for every novice guitarist - and I've made two videos about it: https://youtu.be/T686vo6zoI0 (quick start) and https://youtu.be/pROblpMuFF8 (first two pedals)Tons of digital FX, plenty of great sounding drum patterns, a 30-sec looper w/ overdubbing, built-in tuner, works w/ Guitar Lab software, and both electric AND acoustic sound GREAT thru the pedal. It's a winner across the board and worth every penny of the price!
Sound
Overall sound quality is pretty good out of the box, especially the drum tracks, and VERY good after tweaking. (IMO many of the factory patches are "too much" by default. Some are too loud or too saturated w/ FX. Some sound great as is.) Yes - it works just as well on acoustic as electric, though most of the factory patches are obviously designed for electric (rock) guitar.
Features
Most useful features: - Easy to use (primary operating modes) - AUX stereo input (play along w/ your favorite songs or jam tracks) - On-board rhythm tracks (that sound great) - On-board looper (30-sec + overdubbing)- Guitar Lab software compatible
Ease of Use
Thanks to the completely updated user interface, the learning curve is very short - but here's a quick-start video to get you going: https://youtu.be/T686vo6zoI0
Quality
This is not a pro-quality pedal for touring musicians.It's a rock-out-at-home-in-your-socks pedal that you can also gig with.
Value
Come on... a mutli-FX pedal w/ on-board rhythm and looper for $100 ??? Yeah, it's absolutely positively worth the price.
Manufacturer Support
Haven't dealt w/ Zoom support.
The Wow Factor
The major appeal of the Zoom G1X FOUR is simplicity, features, sound quality, and most of all: FUN FACTOR !!!

"Excellent value"
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I'll never get rid of my G1on, but after trying the G1xfour for a half hour, I can tell that the G1Xfour is a major step in improvement. The tones are so much more accurate.
Sound
The sound, in a word, is cleaner. Even the distorted effects are clearer and retains the articulation that is so very important. The clean settings are quite sparkly. I play only Strats, so the cleans are fantastic for me. By playing style is Blues, Jazz and Fusion. This pedal fits my style perectly.
Features
The housing is plastic, so one must be careful and not stomp too hard. I'm pretty easy on my gear, so I'm not worried about the durability.
Ease of Use
Uhmmmm....there is definitely a learning curve with this unit.
Quality
I just got this pedal, so I can't comment on how reliable it will be.
Value
So far, the value far outweighs the price.
Manufacturer Support
I have not had to contact with Zoom.
The Wow Factor
The appeal? It looks and sounds quite good.
Musical Background:
I've been playing, teaching and performong for 30 years.
Musical Style:
I'm a devoted follower of Blues, Jazz and Fusion.

"I like the old ones better."
Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
G1X is great if you never used the prior one. Still I would say this would be my choice for affordable bad to the bone effects. zZounds is a good safe bet too! Later!!! search 'Lightning Fingers' - Long live Roy Clark !!!!!
Sound
It is not the same machine mostly Because in a comparison based on personal ownership of each. Why do I have both? I like Zoom and they are cost effective for my moment. They are the best option for me. 5+ years concerning the guitar [and bass] note; Listen to Lightning Fingers Simms music. The guitars used are frequently Mixed with the G-1 zoom. The old is golden.
Features
Sounds are all good.
Ease of Use
Older model is bet.ter
Quality
VERY RELIABLE
