This One’s for the Creators The ZOOM G11 Multi-Effects Processor for Guitarists

At Zoom, we’ve been designing Multi-Effects for guitar players for over 30 years. The G11 represents the culmination of our engineering and passion.

Let Your Creativity Soar

Our best engineers took the tonal qualities of the greatest amps in history, combined them, and crafted all new amp models designed to give you new palettes of tone, to take your creativity to a whole new level.

More Cabinet Sounds
Than Ever

G11 provides 22 cabinet emulations of all modeling amps plus 70 pre-loaded full impulse response (IR) data, that were captured with different microphones in various positions, providing you a wide spectrum of cabinet sounds to choose from. Additionally, you can import up to 130 of your own IR’s.

It Feels Like Home

While the G11 is our most advanced pedal ever, it’s super familiar. From the stompbox control to the amp panel, you’ll feel like you’ve been here before.

Zoom Originals

Krampus

Combines the brightness of an 80's British amp, with the solid low range of a modern high gain amp.

Redloom

Merges the simple tone of early guitar amps with the rich overtones of a 60's tube amp, perfect for rhythm guitar.

Velvet

Provides a smooth character that balances the dynamic response between the wound and plain strings, enabling you to play both lead and rhythm without switching amp channels.

Muddy

Delivers a vintage amp sound perfect for gritty Blues.

7 Heaven

Combines a very tight low end with expanded dynamic response, perfect for 7 and 8 string guitars.

Pollex

With extreme drop-tuning, this amp is designed for slap-playing or the heavy-metal sound of Djent.

New Distortion Effects

Razor Drive uses comb filtering to control the sound saturation by boosting the filter and therefore distortion, at each frequency point of resonance. This processing creates a new distortion never before heard.

Wave Shaper applies a new original algorithm to shape the waveform and create a unique sound extremely rich in harmonics.

 

New Modulation Effects

 

PolyShift adds subtle sound variances over a two-octave range to deliver a modern pitch shifting effect.


Geminos is a real-time doubling effect that adds thickness and width by triple overdubbing the original dry signal. This reproduces a random organic texture when playing chords and powerful sustain for solos.

SwellVibe, unlike any standard vibrato that starts modulating the signal from the start, applies pitch modulation with a time lag affecting only the sustain of your sound. It inspires unconventional ways for playing ambient pads.
