Zoom G1ON, the $50 Amp Modeler, Multi-fx and Looper

I picked up one of these G1ONs a while back for recording and playing at home. The price was good so I thought I’d give it a shot. The amp models in these are incredible and sound very realistic. For my home recording needs it’s perfect. I would much rather use a pedal with modeling than have to setup an amp and microphones just to record guitar. I know some people think that’s the only way to go, but I have to respectfully disagree. I honestly think modeled tones work better for recording, especially when recording at home.

The looper feature was a really nice surprise. I actually didn’t even know it had that when I ordered it. The looper function is pretty basic however and there’s no way to store loops for recalling at a later time. All of the reverbs and other fx are very nice sounding, and for the home recording enthusiast, it is a great way to have a ton of guitar tones at a tiny cost.
