Zoom Releases the G11 Multi-Effects Unit

The new unit includes 22 cabinet emulations, 70 pre-loaded impulse responses, and a 5-inch color touchscreen.

Hauppauge, NY (April 28, 2020) -- For over 30 years Zoom has been designing multi-effects for guitar players. The G11 represents the culmination of Zoom’s engineering leadership and passion in equipping creators with guitar products they need to fully express themselves.

The new G11 includes all the traditional and classic sounds guitar players seek and also offers new original Zoom amps and several brand-new effects. Identifying the tonal qualities of the greatest amps in history, Zoom engineers combined those signature sounds to craft new amp models, ranging from vintage blues to the heavy-metal sound of “Djent”. In addition to these original new amp models, Zoom has invented entirely new distortion and never-heard-before modulation effects, too.

With 22 cabinet emulations of all modeling amps, plus, 70 pre-loaded impulse responses (IR), captured with different microphones placed in various positions, the G11 provides a wide spectrum of sonically accurate cabinet sounds to choose from. You can also import up to 130 of your own IR’s, for true sound customization.

The G11 features a 5-inch color touchscreen, with easy-to-use, application driven technology, which lets you drag, drop and swipe your way to new sounds. The adjacent amp panel is designed to look like the front of an amp, providing easy access to manually tweak common amp settings.

68 built-in rhythm patterns in various genres and time signatures, along with a 5-minute looper provides additional creative tools. The G11 is Midi compatible, and functions as an audio interface for Mac and PC, enabling you to record directly to your favorite DAW via USB.

The new Zoom G11 will be available May 2020 for $799.99.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
