This processor has awesome features including a drum machine, looper and can thus be used for creating cool improv music. I would recommend getting the g3x as it has the pedal as well which adds to the features
whether its crushing metal or classic 12 bar blues this little guy can handle it all. The construction is very rugged and sturdy, the foot switches have a nice resistance to them so there is no accidental change in tone in a live scenario. The amp models are decent and the effects can be edited quite easily. The zoom g3 can be easily hooked up to an expression pedal and to a computer. The zoom edit and share software allows you to edit and store patches using your computer. you can even record your guitar using the USB, which offers a very very low latency. It reacts positively to you rolling off your volume and going to a cleaner sound. you can easily run a stereo setup using the left and right outputs. The zoom g3 has a ground lift switch so there will be no grounding issues and unwanted noise. It also has a balanced line out (xlr) which can be routed to pre or post effects, this means you can record DI tracks while listening to processed tone while recording. A GOOD BUDGET EFFECTS PROCESSOR.
I actually bought this off a music shop near me and it cost me around 17k. And i regret it now because bajaao.com is really scoring with its discounts and cheap prices for good products like these. Now about the product: The three incredibly large screens and foot switches is a boon for playing live and sets it apart because these screens seem bigger compared to other units. All the high gain tones are mind blowing, proves that this is a handy effects processor for any metal guitarist. Although the acoustic sound presets are not all that great. Even though there are even better products from Zoom, the zoom G3 is an effects processor that is worthy of this price and an irreplaceable unit with no competent rivals in its class.
