Who uses the Zoom 9002?

I'm posting this because today i rediscovered my Zoom 9002 after years of not playing with it.

And oh man, what a fantastic unit for what it is! It is full with all the essential effects that have the right amount of tweeking parameteres and a few esoteric ones too (cry, ring mod, step). And i'm always amazed of how this baby sounds good direct to the board. It has a certain sound of it's own that is instantly recognizable. I'm not saying that it sounds like an amp, of course not, but to my ears the distortion sound direct to the board is great (and considering this was released way before the POD...)! I've done several demos with it and the distortion sound always sounds amazing. And if you don't believe this thing delivers "pro" results, listen to the solo in the beginning of "Beverly Hills" show. That's a 9002!

I love it. It's a little treasure that i'll always have.

I loved mine, too. *It's got a low level hum now that's too annoying to me, so I replaced it with the PS02. *Maybe I'll ebay it (with a link to an MP3 of the hum; no ripping off eBayers...).

I DO think a clip would have been better than the "belt rails", but ya can't have everything.

i´ve been *a user for years and i think it is wonderful unit, great piece of gear.
the only problem (and it is a big one) is that is very fragile and the battery has a short life and nowadays it is hard to find new ones.
richie sambora used it a lot and also dweezil zappa, great tones!

I still have mine. *I really like the portability. *The Zoom and my VWH have traveled half way across the world with me. *Now that I am thinking about it I am going to play with it tonight.

Bought mine over a POD!!!

Like I said in the other Zoom 9002 thread James Byrd uses one for all his home practising, only uses his Marshall's when recording.

And.....Yngwie used one of these for all his demo's from around 91-96!!!

What I like about it is that it has enough drive in it to make a Strat sound good - which to me the POD does not.

A great unit.

I had one up to 2 days ago

It did everything a rack unit would and sounded great, especially if you used headphone out to amp instead of lineout. *

Only problem was you could not switch patches without delay.

I have a 9000 which I use for those really odd effects that they came with, cry, ring mod, etc. Other that I haven't used it that much. It was my main direct recording tool, until I got my POD a couple years ago.
