The ZOOM G3X is a powerful toom for live performance features the ability to use SIX effects simultaneously as well as a scrolling function that allows you to control all of them intuitively using the stomp box-size panels. Along with 94 types of effects, 22 amp models with realism so advanced that they include overtones are at your command. With the G3X's expression pedal, your sonic freedom is exponentially increased.

With the three stomp box-style panels, you can intuitively use and edit up to six models of effects and amps at the same time. Using the scroll function, you can put the effect you want to adjust on one of the large screens in an instant. Since each effect unit has three knobs, not only is sound creation easy, reordering effects is also simple. No matter what the situation, you will be free from stressful operations.

The trio of stomp box-style panels allows you to sculpt sounds intuitively using their footswitches and knobs to control the effects shown on their large displays. ZOOM has added a scroll function for the three screens, making it easy to edit any of the up to six simultaneous effects. In addition, other advantages that exemplify the ZOOM brand include automatic saving of effect parameter changes and the freedom to easily rearrange the effects as you like in the chain. Anyone can master the G3X without depending on the manual.

In addition to models of 13 amps that are among the best in the world, 9 amp models have been added that are so realistic they include harmonics. Each amp has its own cabinet modeling, so even the sonic characteristics that vary depending on physical traits—the number of speakers and cabinet materials—have been impressively re-created. By combining amplifiers and cabinets from different makers, you can even create your own unique amp sounds.

Starting with Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, numerous guitarists have found the wah-wah pedal to be indispensable. The G3X include vintage wah-wah modeling, so you can use an expression pedal to get that classic sound. The auto assign function means the pedal is ready to use as soon as you choose an appropriate effect and you can start playing without any hassle. Moreover, in addition to pitch-shifting, volume control and other traditional pedal effects, parameters such as the gain of drive effects, the rate of modulation effects and the mix level of delay and reverb effects can also be controlled in real time as you play guitar.
