Designed to put a panoply of sonic possibilities beneath the feet of electric guitar players, the Zoom G3Xn is a multi-effects processor with 68 different effects, up to seven of which can be used simultaneously.

  • 68 Built-In Rhythm Patterns
  • 7 Effects Can Be Used Simultaneously
  • 75 Custom-Designed Factory Patches

The Zoom G3XN Multi-Effects Guitar Processor is a multi-effects processor with 68 different effects, up to seven of which can be used simultaneously.

Also provided are five amp and cabinet emulations that aim to replicate the sonic signatures of classic setups; every sonic signature from Marshall to Bogner is honored herein.

Three footswitches allow you to initiate effects, which are all editable via three separate LCD screens, each of which boasts four dedicated parameter controls, which change depending on the effect you choose.

At the bottom of the pedal are three more foot controls: two scroll pedals for cycling through banks, as well as a third control for tap-tempo and tuner regulation. An 80-second phrase looper is also available for all your looping needs.

The Zoom G3XN Multi Effects Processor provides both instrument and auxiliary inputs, and an output section with both a mono 1/4″ output and a stereo 1/4″ output, useful for monitoring through headphones.

Implementing stereo effects, or routing stereo signals to interfaces, PAs, mixers, and recording devices.

At 7.1 x 12.5 x 2.5″, the Zoom G3XN is portable enough to carry from gig to gig, and at 4.0 lb,

it’s lightweight enough to present only a little added stress to your existing touring rig. With this pedal, you can easily replace—or augment—your existing pedalboard.

Built-In Expression Pedal

The G3XN Multi-Effects Guitar Processor features a built-in expression pedal that provides real-time control over volume, tone, or selected effects parameters.
