Re: Zoom G2
My friend owned a Zoom G2 and it was rugged and well built, but in his opinion (and mine) it didn't have a wide variety of sounds available. They seemed to be all heavy metal-like or hardly usable.
Fortunately/unfortunately for him, he accidentally left it on top of his car, and it fell off on the highway and smashed.
He now has a DigiTech RP80, and he says (despite it not looking quite as hardcore) the sounds it has are far superior.
I would have to agree with him in my opinion, as I own a DigiTech RP50 (same unit and same sounds but without the expression pedal attached) and I love it.
So look into the RP50 as an alternative jsut to be safe (the RP80 is unfortunately now out of production, but the RP50 has the same sounds anyway).
