    Zoom’s G3 Guitar Effects and Amp Simulator combines the ease of a stompbox pedalboard with the power of a multi-effects processor and USB audio interface. With complete control over individual effects and amp modeling, you can change your tones on the fly for both stage and studio.


    THREE STOMPS ONE PEDAL

    G3 offers three large LCD displays and corresponding footswitches that form a graphical interface, allowing you to utilize up to three 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.


    EVOLUTION OF TUBE AMP SIMULATION

    A newly developed sigmoid curve clipper re-creates the smooth clipping of a tube amplifier’s waveform. With its faithful tube distortion, G3 can simulate amplifier sounds, including clean, crunch and full-gain tones that are authentic to the original models.


    REALISTIC AMP MODELING

    G3’s 13 super-real amp models range from vintage to the latest trends in amp technology, each with its own distinct cabinet modeling that can be used to alter its tone characteristics. By combining amplifiers and cabinets from different makers, you can digitally design your own custom rig. G3’s modeling technology provides the best tone for both live performance and direct recording.

    *Only one amp model can be used at a time.


    94 STOMPBOX MODELS

    G3 has 94 diverse types of stompbox presets, including some of the world’s most popular guitar pedals. You can use up to three effects in any combination. G3’s wide range of effects includes distortion, compression, modulation, delay and reverb. Its HD Reverb uses DSP power to produce a rich resonance that rivals outboard gear used in professional studios and live setups.

    *Only two effects can be used in some combinations that feature amp models or HD Reverb.


    NEWEST GENERATION ZFX-4 DSP

    G3 utilizes the all-new ZFX-IV DSP effects processor. This generation of ZFX boasts amazing power, upgrading everything from sound to function and operability over previous versions. By using 32-bit floating-point processing, G3 possesses amplifier sounds that are more realistic than ever before.


    LOOPER WITH 40 SECOND PHRASE RECORDING/OVERDUBBING

    G3’s Looper capabilities include 40 seconds of phrase recording and overdubbing. The “sound-on-sound” function allows you to layer guitar sounds as many times as you want in real time. You can use looped sounds as simple backing tracks or create a “full band” feel with the built-in drum machine and DSP effects for a live solo.

    * When the UNDO/REDO functions is enabled, the recording time is limited to 20 seconds.


    USB AUDIO INTERFACE FOR DAW RECORDING

    G3 operates as an audio interface, letting you record directly to your computer via USB. All of your sound settings used during rehearsals or live performances can be recorded to your favorite DAW such as the included Steinberg Sequel LE recording software. The pedal’s direct monitoring capability eliminates any latency problems, assuring realistic studio conditions and hassle-free operation.


    100 VERSATILE EFFECTS

    Select from 100 built-in DSP effects to create your own sounds on G3. Try its renowned compression and wah pedals, chorus effects with stunning depth and resonant reverbs. Or let your tonal imagination run free with dynamic flangers, tremolos, harmonized pitch shifters, multi-tap delays, reverse delays and much more. G3 can store up to 100 of your original creations without a hitch.


    INTEGRATED DRUM MACHINE

    Choose from 40 different rhythm patterns, including 4, 8 and 16-beat, shuffle and many others. The tap key also makes it easy to directly set the tempo and start a jam session anytime.


    BALANCED XLR OUTPUT FOR DI USE

    With its built-in XLR output, you can avoid DI boxes completely and directly connect G3 to any mixing console and maintain a balanced, high quality signal. In addition, a convenient Pre/Post switch can direct an effected sound to the main outputs while passing the guitar signal directly to the XLR output without the help of an A/D converter.


    OUTPUT MODES FOR STAGE OR STUDIO

    Different output modes allow you to optimize G3’s tones based upon its connection with your personal rig. In addition to modes for the front inputs of combo and stack amps, G3 can be used as a preamp when connected to a power amp input. By selecting the direct mode with a line connection, you can achieve a realistic guitar sound that is optimal for live use and recording.


    ADD A G3 TO YOUR PEDAL BOARD

    G3 is perfect for use in combination with traditional stompboxes. By adding a G3 to your pedalboard, you will decrease the size and complexity of your setup, while expanding your system’s effects and modeling capabilities.


    ACCURATE, REALTIME TUNER FUNCTION

    The pedal’s Tuner function offers smooth, real-time response with precise guitar tuning accuracy. Whether you’re in the middle of a performance or practicing alone in your room, simply hold down the pedal’s center footswitch to start getting your strings back on pitch. In addition, G3’s LCD displays and LED indicators make the feature easy to use on a dark stage, where you can also mute the output for seamless tuning.

     


    WORLD'S FASTEST PATCH CHANGE SPEED: 1ms

    With G3’s amazing 1ms patch change speed, you will never miss a beat. Change from rhythm playing to a solo in an instant by simply pushing the switch.


    EXTREMELY FAST 5 MS PATCH CHANGE SPEED

    With its amazing patch change speed of only 5 milliseconds, the G2.1Nu allows you to never miss a beat. Change from rhythm playing to a solo in an instant by simply pushing the switch and start playing the solo phrase at the same time because the muting interval when switching patches has been reduced to an absolute minimum.

     


    BATTERIES, AC ADAPTER OR USB POWER

    G3 can operate on three different power sources: AC adapter (included), batteries or USB bus power when plugged into your computer. Four AA/LR6 alkaline batteries provide over six hours of continuous playing. Whether on stage or in the studio, G3 gives you reliable power options.


    ULTRA-LOW NOISE DESIGN

    G3’s signal-to-noise ratio of 120dB and noise floor of -100dBm virtually eliminate background noise. G3’s ZNR noise reduction removes feedback and other unwanted sounds, providing you with beautiful tones and natural release.


    OPTIONAL EXPRESSION PEDAL AND FOOTSWITCH

    Connect an optional FP02 expression pedal to G3 and control effect parameters such as wah, pitch shift, volume, drive gain, modulation rate and delay/reverb mix in real time. Use an optional FS01 footswitch to tap the tempo used for the drum machine, looper and effects. You can also use an FS01 to mute the Delay/Reverb input or turn Delay Hold on or off.


    RUNS ON BATTERIES AC ADAPTOR USB BUS POWER

    The G2.1Nu can use three different power sources: AC adaptor, batteries or USB bus power when plugged into your computer. Four AA / LR6 alkaline batteries are good for 6.5 hours of continuous use. Whether in the studio or on stage, the G2.1Nu gives you power options that work.

     


    FREE EDIT&SHARE SOFTWARE

    Zoom’s Edit&Share software, which is available as a free download for G3, allows you to create, edit and save your personalized amp and effect settings on your computer. Use its “radar charts” to access visual representations of each preset’s tone characteristics, amp/effect sorting feature to easily locate your sounds and drag-and-drop options to rearrange patches for editing purposes. With Edit&Share, you can download the latest patches online, as well as share your patches with others.
