I got one..nothing special really..I'd wish I just bought a Line 6 Spider III Combo Amp 75w instead! More fun for the $$$.
The Zoom's 40 drum-sets, of which 11 were of any use for practice.
The effects are decent/clean but become boring... fast!Wah & Flanger are good.
My Fender G-Dec 30w is way more fun for hobby/practice/jamming.
I honestly recommend you keep your money! Shop lots before you spend.
The new Vox Tonelab LE is the cream of the crop for pedal boards & a way better investment. :food-smiley-004:

I've heard it sounds terribley unnatural, but I've never used one myself.

Line 6 Spider III 75... I had that for 2 weeks before taking it back. I won't say it's completely terrible, but it just has that digital sound to it. Good for bedroom practice or bringing to a friends house / band jam space? Absolutely. Good for gigs? Pass.

so basically im pretty limited to stuff that is over 400$ to get good tone hey....too bad it isnt a good pedal, as it is a very good price. Thanks for your input guys! :)

I play every wednesday at my school, and I usually just plug into the PA system with my current fx pedal and it is breaking down on me. I guess its better to save and get something worthwile :) thanks again.

oh, just to add, what I am mainly interested in is distortion...so like different distortions. Should I just get like a boss DS1 or something? I would be running the pedals straight into a PA system right.

You can get used PODxt's for roughly the same price as the Zoom G2.1u. Or get a POD 2.0 for even less... I saw one locally for $150 several times.

I have a zoom G2 and love the thing for practice, I used it on my laptop wich a Tonelab SE has since taken it's place. You can get some great tone with some heavy tweaking. I still use it when there is a power outage, it can last 7 hours on 4 AA batts using headphones, great pedal:wave:
