More Cabinet Sounds Than Ever

G11 provides 22 cabinet emulations of all modeling amps plus 70 pre-loaded full impulse response (IR) data, that were captured with different microphones in various positions, providing you a wide spectrum of cabinet sounds to choose from. Additionally, you can import up to 130 of your own IR’s.

Touch and Go

Your sounds may be complex but building them shouldn’t be. With easy-to-use, application driven technology, the G11’s 5-inch color touchscreen lets you drag, drop and swipe your way to new sounds.


Michael O'Neil

“The G11 has an infinite combination of sounds.
As a busy professional it's important that I can easily access what I need. With the G11, I'm able to quickly create essential customized patches for all my playing situations.”

It Feels Like Home

While the G11 is our most advanced pedal ever, it’s super familiar. From the stompbox control to the amp panel, you’ll feel like you’ve been here before.

Zoom Original Effects


Combines the brightness of an 80's British amp, with the solid low range of a modern high gain amp.


Merges the simple tone of early guitar amps with the rich overtones of a 60's tube amp, perfect for rhythm guitar.


Provides a smooth character that balances the dynamic response between the wound and plain strings, enabling you to play both lead and rhythm without switching amp channels.

Delivers a vintage amp sound perfect for gritty Blues.

7 Heaven

Combines a very tight low end with expanded dynamic response, perfect for 7 and 8 string guitars.


With extreme drop-tuning, this amp is designed for slap-playing or the heavy-metal sound of Djent.


Carl Verheyen

“The G11 with its amplifier models and unique effects is a guitar player’s dream for home recording. The stereo outputs interface perfectly with my home recording rig and provide so many more creative sound options.”

New Distortion Effects


Razor Drive

Razor Drive uses comb filtering to control the sound saturation by boosting the filter and therefore distortion, at each frequency point of resonance. This processing creates a new distortion never before heard.


Wave Shaper

Wave Shaper applies a new original algorithm to shape the waveform and create a unique sound extremely rich in harmonics.

New Modulation Effects



PolyShift adds subtle sound variances over a two-octave range to deliver a modern pitch shifting effect.


Geminos is a real-time doubling effect that adds thickness and width by triple overdubbing the original dry signal. This reproduces a random organic texture when playing chords and powerful sustain for solos.



SwellVibe, unlike any standard vibrato that starts modulating the signal from the start, applies pitch modulation with a time lag affecting only the sustain of your sound. It inspires unconventional ways for playing ambient pads.
