I feel very young now. I started playing in 2003 and my first multi-effects was the Zoom G2.1u. Looked like something from a sci-fi film.

It was a beaut though

EDIT: I also had a Boss MT-2 for a while though, so not all my pedal choices were even half decent

It was actually the g2.1u that put me off zoom! I didn’t like the amp models on it but worse than that I had 3, all of which had failed footswitches.... so much for a pedal marketed with the robustness and ease of a stomp box.

I never had any such issues, but back then I thought the amp models were great. I wonder how I'd feel if I took a listen with the experience I have now, especially given the many modelling amps and plugins I've had since. I imagine I'd hate them now. Might take a listen on YouTube at lunch sometime.

But regardless of whether the amps were good or not, the main effect I used was the Marshall Guvnor clone. I tried things like phasers and the like but I just didn't have the knowledge, the experience, or the ears to know how to use them.

So all in all, it was arguably a waste of my money. If I wanted the same tone today, I'd just buy a Guvnor on eBay.

Had a few listens on YouTube... It sounds better than I remember actually!

I think I might try and get it back from the mate I gave it to, Hope he's still got it.
