I purchased the Zoom G9.2tt while performing in three different Top-40 acts, and with every new gig I found a reason to like the G9.2tt more and more. Right out of the box, this thing was inspirational. Great sounds and really quiet…
I wasn’t planning to buy a multi-effects unit when the G9.2tt came into my life, but this floor-pedal was one of those, “necessary adds,” to my gear lineup. At the time, I was working every week in three different nightclub acts playing; Top-40 music, Latin /Caribbean and Reggae.
My effects at the time were far too simple for the demands of those styles, and what I owned (previous to buying this Zoom pedal), couldn’t cut it across the vast array of music styles that I was performing.
I needed a ton of variety to my stage sound but could not find the right mix of individual pedals to make things happen the way I heard in my head.
I was playing music that crossed through just about every style that one might imagine, and due to the wide range of music I was performing, I was becoming less and less satisfied with my guitar sound.
Enter the Zoom G9.2tt!
The sounds were great, especially the reverbs, delays and pre-amp /distortion modes. Zoom was smart when they included the two 12ax7 tubes because those tubes really added a warmth and color to the tone.
Admittedly some of the modulations are a bit weak (uni-vibe and wah wahs), but overall they worked for what I needed them and since everything else was so functional, I have to say that hands-down this is a fantastic unit.
When I purchased this effects board, I wanted a pedal that was made for live use with a wide selection of sound options, and the Zoom G9.2tt fit the bill.
NOTE: The Zoom G9.2tt is discontinued, but their new generation model of this pedal is the Zoom: Multi Effect Processor (G11)
