Zoom G1On Output Options?

Post by littlebadboy » Thu Feb 15, 2018 7:31 pm

Hello everyone!

I have been playing for 30+ years. Throughout those years, I had the opportunity of owning a Zoom 2020 back in the 90's. I wasn't happy with the drive options, so I sold it and got replaced with a Zoom 1010 which I really loved! I kept it for awhile and gigged with it. I sold it when I came over to America 10 years ago.

My new G1On just arrived yesterday but I can't seem to figure out the output. It makes my guitar feedback a lot and some noise. Just as my other mfx, I plug it into my my Power Amp on or Effect Return of my guitar amp. Doesn't it have a choice of output options like if I will plug it into a combo amp, PA, Line In, etc?

May I ask for any advice?

A quick look at the specifications indicate that output through the 1/4" output jack is +2 dBm at an output impedance load of 10 kΩ or more. (Note: 0 dBm = 0.775 Vrms). That implies there are not multiple output settings.

If you haven't done so you might want to obtain the system firmware V1.21 update and the manual. Both are available here: https://www.zoom-na.com/products/guitar ... r#overview
