Default Mini Review - Zoom G1Xon

So, the pedal arrived late last Friday. I'm having a lot of fun with it and the pros are many while the cons for this unit are few.

1) 90% of the loaded presets absolutely suck. I think someone was tripping on something when they loaded these presets. Weird space-shippy sounds and tons of metal tones, which I don't use. I will probably keep a couple to get my mullet on, but the rest will go.
2) TOO many presets IMO.

1) Relatively quick learning curve
2) seems fairly sturdy
3) The effects are pretty good
4) Many of the amp models are quite good

So my main thing was I wanted reverb, tremelo, and a couple of OD's - the Wah pedal was the icing on the cake. I wasn't really concerned with the amp modelling, but turns out I kinda like that feature too.

The Laney Cub 10 isn't a bad sounding amp alone, but kinda has a dark voicing, which I ain't crazy about. Change it to a Deluxe Reverb and bam, huge tone change. Really brings it to life. It has an acoustic simulator too, which isn't bad at all - I just need to tweak some of the parameters for my taste.

I have no idea about durability, but I like it enough that I may purchase the extended warranty, something i never do.

Overall, maybe the best 70 bucks I ever spent on a piece of gear.
