The Zoom G1u is a multi-tone guitar pedal. While the design is similar to the Zoom G1N, a number of functions have been added and a USB port now enables a connection to a PC or Mac. A guitar tuner has been built in, and up to 100 presets can be saved for later recall. Features in common with the Zoom G1N include a 96 kHz sampling rate from the guitar input for high quality sound, and a 24 bit A/D/A conversion module to keep quality loss to a minimum while sound is being processed. A drum machine is built in and can be programmed with a basic tap key. This pedal will work on battery power, and can also be powered through a standard AC outlet.
