Dial in the Perfect Tone With 70+ Effects and 13 Amp Models

Whether you're into metal, jazz, blues or country, the G1X FOUR has you covered. Choose from authentic-sounding amp models like Fender, Marshall and VOX, then add modulation, delay, reverb and distortion effects to craft your signature sound. With up to five simultaneous effects, the possibilities are nearly endless. The easy-to-read display makes it simple to adjust effect levels and parameters to your liking.

Take Control in Real Time With the Expression Pedal

The built-in expression pedal unlocks the full potential of the G1X FOUR, providing continuous control over volume, wah, delay time and other effect parameters as you play. Transition smoothly from a subtle chorus to a deep phaser swoosh or make gradual changes to distortion and EQ settings for dynamic tone shaping on the fly. The pedal's tension can also be adjusted to your preferred stiffness, ensuring a natural feel underfoot.

Craft Multi-Part Arrangements With the 30-Second Looper

Lay down a rhythm track or chord progression with the looper, then solo over the top. With up to 30 seconds of recording time, you have enough space to create intros, verses, choruses and more. The looper is a great tool for practice, performance and spurring new ideas. Sync your loops to the built-in drum patterns for a full-on jam session.

68 Drum Patterns Provide Rhythmic Backing

Whether you want a simple 4/4 beat or a complex 7/8 groove, the G1X FOUR has you covered with 68 drum patterns to choose from. The drum sounds are high quality and natural, providing solid rhythmic foundations for practice, performance and songwriting. Sync the drum patterns to your looper tracks for a complete backing band at your feet.
