Seriously good multieffect unit for the price!
Too old for this, 22.06.2020
Sturdy construction, easy to use, excellent effects, to be honest its pretty much unbeatable in this price range. There are no real cons, but zoom have scored a bit of an own goal with people like me who have previously had cheaper entry level zoom effects units. I had the G1on, and on this the lowest model (and its replacement the G1 Four), the rhythm section and looper are completely seperate from the effects patches. So you can get your drums going, record a loop, and at any point press the home button and change patches and the drums and loop will happily chug away quite independently. On the G5n both the drum machine and looper have to be added to a patch as effects taking up 2-3 slots and worst of all you cannot change to a different patch. The looper is much improved with longer recording time and an undo feature, but being confined to a single patch sucks, and not what I expected from a much more expensive zoom product. If you are not coming from a lower level zoom pedal this will probably not bother you as other brands in this price range don't have either rhythm section or looper at all, so these features are a big plus. Honestly though, the G5n is so good I couldn't bring myself to drop it a point on features given everything else is so good.

One thing I would suggest zoom consider is a global. Mic on/off feature on the speaker cabs. Typically, when using cab sims you want the mic off when playing through a guitar amp, and on when usinh headphones, recording, and going DI to a mixing desk or an Frfr speaker. I tend to play through, my amp then switch to headphones in the evening. It would by nice to be able to turn all, cab sim mics on or off as needed, but this isn't a con, just a suggestion.

To summarise, unbeatable multieffect unit at this price point, and I recommend whole heartedly.

Overall, really good product!
JoWahKim, 17.02.2018
It's great for practicing with the built in headphone jack, and it sounds really good through an amp/speaker. The amp simulations sound great with the ability to make heavy metal rhythm and soaring leads, and you can still get some amazing cleans out of it. The selection of effects is very good, it's not just made for 1 genre, it's made for pretty much whatever you can think of! The 100+ presets cover a large base of genres, icluding funk, slide, rock/metal and a weird robot noise.
The only negative thing I can think of is the learning curve, but in comparison to other multi-fx pedals I have used the Zoom G5n is super easy to learn, and the manual is very helpful. Take an afternoon to just mess around and you'll have the basics down and after that you can get more into the other features!
If you plug it into your computer you can get even more presets, either from Zoom's website or from other forums.
Overall, it's an amazing product for intermediate and advanced players. I personally would not recommend for an absolute beginner as it's a lot to take in when you first start.

Very happy
20.01.2017
I've just started playing guitar again after a 17 year hiatus. I decided a multi-effects board was a great way to effectively get many pedals at a fairly low price.

So far I'm happy with the board and the sound from it. I'm running it through an Orange Crush 20 and think it sounds great. There probably are better pedals and better more expensive boards but for playing at home this is a great buy.

I'll doc it a point for the Guitar lab software. It's awful. It allows you download patches & effects as well as rename these. You can't create new patches on it. These have to be done on the board which isn't ideal if you don't know exactly what combinations of effects you're looking for. I believe the older Edit and Share program was much better but this doesn't work with the g5n.

All in all I'd recommend. I can't speak for live or bands but for solo users it's great.

Great value!
Paulo Mendes, 09.01.2021
I was interested in a multieffects pedal for practicing, they are much more practical than having lots of amps and pedals around. I found the interface takes some getting used to, but it is really straight forward after that, and the downloadable patches add many interesting possibilities, even from some well-known guitar players. I haven't tested it on stage (I got it in 2020 after all), but I'd say it's good enough for small gigs. If you're looking for something practical for rehearsals and (future) local gigs, this is a great choice!
