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.

Cons:
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.

Pros:
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.
