does anyone have the Zoom G1X Multi effects pedal and if so is it any good. does it have the usb atachment like the G2.
is the expression pedal worth the extra money.
should i consider buying one.

It won't sound any good on that amp (like it will sound good anyway )
put it to a new amp fund and sell your current amp

the zoom G2 doesn't actually have USB. only the G2.1U or somethinglike that.. the G series aren't bad.. but for a little more you can get something way better..

also with these kinds of prodcuts (boss GT-8, Korg Tonelabs, or line6 pods) these things are mainly meant to be plugged in direct for the purpose of recording, directly into headphones for practicing, or a really clea tube amp (atomic for instance.. its just a poweramp for multi fxs) for louder applications like jams or even gigging.

plugging it into a 5 watt solidstate practice amp won't really do either piece of equipment any good.

No get a BOSS GT-8 or Tonelab SE those are far better. Zoom pedals are really really bad.


Have you used any of the new Zoom pedals? I have a Zoom G2.1U, and it's not as good as a GT-8 or a Tonelab SE, but it's like under half the price. You get what you pay for, but they definitely aren't "really really bad".

save for an amp that already sounds good. are you gigging or just practicing at home? if you're just practicing at home, maybe get yourself a small little tube camp such as a epiphone valve JR. or a crate palomino 8. these amps sound pretty nice by themselves. and still sound pretty good with pedals.
