Ultra-realistic amp/cabinet emulation

You can connect the G5n directly to a PA system or audio interface, using the 26 brand new onboard amp and cabinet emulators. Choose from 13 classic amp models like the ‘59 Fender Bassman, Diezel Herbert Channel 2, Marshall JCM800, Fender Twin Reverb, and MESA Boogie Mk3 , all newly and faithfully created to be adjusted exactly as you would with the knobs and switches of the real thing.

Make your G5n even more versatile by downloading the latest firmware. With V2.0, you'll get 30% more DSP efficiency so you can chain up to 9 effects at a time. There's also a newly enhanced two-unit looper function that lets you use two dedicated footswitches to start and stop a given phrase. You can also expect 8 new amp, 8 new cabinet, and 32 new stompbox effects emulators. All these great features combined means you’ve got the perfect guitar pedal for all occasions.

The new firmware is free for all G5n users to download.

124 custom-crafted combinations and counting

To explore the wealth of possibilities that the G5n offers, Zoom continuously collaborates with inspirational, professional guitarists known for their taste and love of great guitar sounds. The G5n comes stocked with 124 custom-designed patches that both recreate decades of essential guitar tones—like the iconic sounds of Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, Foo Fighters, and Led Zeppelin and pioneer new territory with combinations exclusively created for G5n guitarists.



Stand out with "Lead BGN," a modern lead sound folded into a modulated delay, or "Phazed," an intense tube amp sound through a phaser. The "UFO" patch harnesses parametric EQ in the style of the lead guitarist of the band of the same name, and then there's "DreamWorld," an overdriven crunch enhanced with tape echo and hall reverb.

With Zoom's free ZOOM Guitar Lab software, you can look for new effects and amp/cabinet emulators, as well as even more exclusive patches from their diverse and growing list of G5n creators.

Create your signature sound

Easy editing
Editing is simple and intuitive thanks to a unique, large overview display that allows you to quickly add, delete, or change the order of effects—something not easily accomplished with the average pedalboard. There are also four independent editing displays for zeroing in on the perfect sound, each bank providing the responsiveness and hands-on feel of a stompbox. Store up to 200 of your custom effects-chains as patches in memory, each instantly accessible at the touch of a footswitch.

Powerful pedals
The G5n's expression pedal gives you smooth real-time control over volume, tone, or selected effects parameters, with four stompbox-style footswitches to kick effects in and out on the fly. When you're ready to take a solo, get the bump you need with the G5n's output booster. And to synchronize rhythm patterns and delay times to the beat, just hit the G5n's dedicated Tap tempo footswitch to bring your sound in line.

Complex tonalities
It would take an arsenal of stompboxes, amplifiers, and speakers to duplicate everything you can do with a single G5n. With the release of firmware V2.0, G5n offers more efficient DSP power. This lets you chain up to nine effects more easily and in any order you like.  It's like having hundreds of fully loaded pedalboards in one compact, easy to use device.

Practice up, play out

68 built-in rhythm patterns make the G5n the perfect practice rig and enable "one-man band" performances. A two-unit looper function, which uses dedicated footswitches to start and stop phrases, allows you to record and overdub phrases up to 80 seconds long through the effects of your choice. Plus there's a built-in chromatic tuner, always accessible at the touch of a footswitch you can bypass the currently selected patch while tuning, or mute the signal altogether.

The ins and outs

The G5n can be easily integrated into any live performance or studio rig. In addition to a standard guitar input, there's an auxiliary stereo input for the connection of smartphones or music players, plus a dedicated headphone jack for silent practice and dual outputs for mono or stereo L/R connection to guitar amps, PA systems, and audio interfaces.

Zoom guitar lab software

Use their free ZOOM Guitar Lab Mac/Windows software to instantly download new patches, effects, and amp/cabinet simulators. It includes both a Patch Manager for effects chains and an Effects Manager, with a simple graphic user interface that provides point-and-click control over tweaking, building, and naming your custom patches.

To download new Stomboxes and Amp + Cabinet combinations, simply plug your G5n into an internet-connected computer, power on the pedal, and open the Zoom Guitar Lab software.

The Zoom G5n comes with a free download license for Steinberg’s Cubase LE music production software, providing not just the ability to create incredible guitar sounds in every box, but to do spectacular things with it.
