For a while, I've been on the lookout for a second reverb pedal. I currently have an older Marshall Reflector that I really like, but I've set up separate boards for acoustic & electric guitars, plus I use the reverb in the effects loop of a small mixer when playing out with a trio. For the acoustic and vocal/mixer one option I've wanted is a pre-delay setting. I was pretty much settled on a HoF2 and waiting with hope for Black Friday sales. But even at, let's say, 15% off I was hesitant at paying that much (not that it's too expensive for what it is, it's just more than I want to pay for something that likely won't earn me an extra 0.02 at gigs). So I've been keeping an eye out for other options. The HoF mini is a good price when bought used and I'm OK with only the single toneprint at any one time, but I'd want more than a single knob to account for different room environments. I've been reading up on the ZOOM MG-50G and MS-70CDR. About the same price as a HoF2 but with a lot more functionality. But doing more googling today I was looking at some of the other Zoom multi-effect pedals. Then found the G1X FOUR on Amazon for $79, which is typically the price for the G1 FOUR without expression pedal. While a bigger footprint than the MS-50 or -70 the interface looks better for live performance. And my understanding is that they all use the same code for reverb, delay, etc. Zoom has a similar box for acoustics, A1 FOUR, but it's not on sale ($150) and after looking through the effects available there's not much in the A1 that I'd miss in the G1. So the G1 is on it's way (with free return option if I change my mind). It will still primarily be used for reverb, but who knows, maybe I'll set up some chains I like better like Comp > EQ > Reverb. I currently have an inexpensive Dano Chorus & Donner Dynamic Wah so those might get knocked off the board as well. I really love my Love Pedal EPH-3 delay - it actually stays on all the time and I just turn up the mix knob when I want a delay. We'll have to see how that mixes with the Zoom. As for the drive, amps & cab modeling - fun to play with but not something for which I'm spending the money. That said, I could see it getting used at an open mic or something similar where I do bring a Joyo AC Sound once in a while.
