Price paid: $ 250.8

Purchased from: Billy Hyde Music

Sound — 10
The sound on the new Zoom pedal is absolutely amazing. For the price I paid I never thought it would produce such a great sound. I play this pedal with my Gibson SG plugged into a Laney Hardcore Max 30 Watts amp. Its got 54 different effect types, 9 modules which sound very good. If I need the distortion I got the MT-2 which is amazing and a few more that supply what I need. The wah wah effects are very cool, the harmoniser is amazing and every other effect is amazing. Noise reduction gives my guitar a very clean sound which I love. The Drum Machine has got a quite a few beats which are good (only don't have reverb though doesn't bother me too much). This pedal has an expression pedal unlike the G2 pedal which lets me access more approaches to music. I think the sound and these features are just brilliant.

Overall Impression — 10
I play mainly rock music like jimi hendrix, led zeppelin, stevie ray vaughn, radiohead and theres a massive list which I won't write and this pedal just fits them all. I've been playing for about 6 years overall but electric guitar for about two since I didn't like classical music too much. I love this pedal, it is amazing for the price that was payed for it. If it were stolen, first thing the thief doesnt know who hes messing with, secondly ill ever get it back from the thief or ill just buy a new one. G2\.1U is an amazing pedal, go buy one.

This Zoom is made out of steel with rubber sides. Since its my first day with it I don't need 2 call people. I don't do lots of live shows yet but I'm sure it would be perfect for one.

Ease of Use — 10
Well I have it for one day but I played with it a bit and sort of got the hang of this. It's got an amazing interface in my opinion, its compact and is very well designed. The user interface looks very good and pretty easy to understand though I didn't use it for more than the drum Machine.
