Zoom G5?

    Heya folks, I was just wondering if anyone's tried using the zoom g5 for bass effects and whatnot, what their experience with it was? I'm on the market for a multieffects unit and I am very likely going for the b3, however, I could probably squeeze out the extra mileage for the g5 if it's a decent pedal/potentially better than the b3

    I apologize if this has been covered before, I did actually try the search function to no avail

    I have two G3's. I've used them some on bass, but I'm not a huge effects user, mainly just messing around, but here's my experience.

    Effects work great. Distortions and amp models aren't so great, they lose a lot of low end.

    That's pretty much it. If you want a bunch of good delays, choruses, verbs, etc, and don't care about drives, the G series are good. If you want overdrives, get the B3.
