Zoom took the groundbreaking design of its G3 pedal and dialed it up a notch with the G5 Guitar Effects and Amp Simulator Pedal. The G5 combines the ease of a stompbox pedalboard and the power of a multi-effects pedal and USB audio interface, along with an extra LCD display/footswitch interface, Tube Booster, 3D Z-pedal and additional amp models and effects.
Zoom G5 Multi Effects & Amp Simulator
A complete solution for gigging, recording and home use. Whether you want to use the vast array of effects, recreate true valve amp tone, perform some live looping or record direct into a PC/Mac with the inclusive USB interface and Cubase LE.
Your Own Dream Pedal Board
The G5 offers four large LCD displays and corresponding footswitches that form a graphical interface, allowing you to utilize up to nine 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.
The G5’s Tube Booster footswitch allows you to add sudden power and intensity to your performance, particularly when soloing. While its Boost control can add up to 16dB of amp overdrive, the Tone knob lets you control the EQ of your sounds with the added volume. The Tube Booster also offers extra power when recording directly to a line input.
Over 140 versatile effects on-board.
Select from over 140 built-in DSP effects to create your own sounds on the G5. 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. It also includes over 150 patches personally designed by professional guitarists: Richie Kotzen, Kiko Loureiro(ANGRA), Rob Caggiano(ANTHRAX) and Mike Orlando. In addition, the G5 can store up to 297 (99 banks x 3 patches) of your original creations without a hitch.

Looper function with 60-second phrase recording/overdubbing.
The G5’s Looper capabilities include 60 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 and use looped sounds as simple backing tracks. You can even create a “full band” feel with the built-in drum machine and DSP effects for a live solo.
Note: When the UNDO/REDO function is enabled, the recording time is limited to 30 seconds.
The Z-pedal offers 3D action for a new sense of effect control. Not only can you press the pedal up and down as usual, you can also move it side to side. With 20 effects designed specifically for use with the Z-pedal, you can achieve complex tonal changes that are unlike any before. Furthermore, you can assign 3 parameters from any the 120 effects as you like using custom settings. With one foot on the pedal, take off into uncharted territory with creative effect sounds.
