68 High-Quality Digital Guitar Effects – 5 Amp Emulators & 5 Cabinet Emulators – 100 Factory Patches – 4 Stompbox Switches – Stereo/mono looper – Built-in Tuner

The Zoom G5n Guitar Multi-Effects Processor comes equipped with freshly-developed takes on not only the most-essential guitar sounds like overdrive, distortion, compression, EQ, delay, reverb, flanging, phasing, vibrato.

And chorusing, but also obscure multi-effects such as SE Filter, Gold Drive, Reverse Delay, HD Hall, and OSC Echo.

You can connect the Zoom G5n processor to your guitar amp, or directly to a PA system or audio interface using the 10 brand new onboard amp and cabinet emulators.

Choose from classic amp models like the Marshall JCM800, Fender Twin Reverb, MESA Boogie Mk3, or Bogner Ecstasy Blue Channel.

All of which can be adjusted exactly as you would with the knobs and switches of the real thing.  Pair your amp with one of the 5 newly-created cabinet emulators to complete the sound.

In addition, you can expand your palette of sounds with Zoom’s free Guitar Lab software for Mac and Windows.

You can download new effects, amp and cabinet emulators, as well as exclusive patches from a diverse and growing list of pro guitarists.
