Zoom has announced a May 2012 release date for its new multi-effects unit, the G5
The numerous ins and outs of Zoom's new G5 multi-effects unit
The G5 features 100 stompbox effects, 20 amp models that are described as "super-real" and over 120 DSP effects
The G5's 3D Z-pedal offers players the familiar up and down expression control, but the pedal can also be moved from side to side and each axis can be assigned up to four parameters
The Mustang Floor multi-effects unit for guitar we featured earlier this month is a good first effort from Fender, but Japanese digital tone-manipulation veteran Zoom is about to really show how it's done with the introduction of the G5. The company's most advanced guitar FX unit to date, the Zoom G5 Guitar Effects and Amp Simulator Pedal - to use its full name - features hundreds of stompbox and DSP effects, tube drive boost, looping and recording, and an onboard drum machine.
