Title: Zoom
Post by: IceTre on September 26, 2010, 01:42:28 AM
Hi,  I have become comepletely consumed with getting a zoom G2.1NU pre amp and effects pedal.  I have a Randall G2 RH200SC head, 4X12 cab, Boss NS2, and 4 channel parametric EQ.  I have decided I will sell the Randall and get the Zoom and a power amp.  Does anyone have any experience with this pedal and is it any good?  I am torn because I do like the Randall and sometimes I think that all it needs is a delay pedal but then I really want to try this pedal.  I don't know why and it is driving me insane.  Anyone that has tried this pedal would be alot of help.  Thanks.

Just MO,,
But I'm yet to hear a good convincing ZOOM efx unit.
But then I don't use EFX units.

I find Analog stuff much more real world. 8|

I did have a Zoom 9020 with floor pedal = Crap Fruitloop lolipop machine and friggin noisy.  :trouble Long gone Thank God.
Also had (and still Have) A Quadraverb GT.

The Zoom was A toy and the Quad was at least a stunning piece of equipment that although a pian in the ass to use sounded real.
The Quad is now used in a small PA rig where it's fantastic reverbs are put to use on Vocals.

Specially about something you haven't even tested !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1) Do NOT sell your Randall, at worst use it as a power amp and cabinet
2) Why do you want that Zoom so badly?
