Question about Zoom G1x Guitar Multi Effects Pedal with EXpression Pedal

1 Answer

Zoom G1X Repair!!!!

Hey there, sadly my zoom g1x took a fairly hard hit in practice the other night and the rotory parameter switch took most of the damage. The plastic cover came off and the axis of the switch was off centre.
My question, does anyone have any knowledge of this pedals internal workings? Would it be possible to fix, i know i could get into it but would this perhaps cause more damage? The pedal still works but im just not able to change any setting values.

If anyone can offer any advice or has had a similar experiance any help would be much apprieciated.

Cheers, Chris.

If the pedal still works, likely the circuit board is not cracked.

The control that is damaged is LIKELY an encoder.

Many of these are made by ALPS, Bourns and others.

You need to open the unit top get at the device.

The encoders are available from either DigiKey.com or Mouser.com

Here is an example page:

You need to match the pinout and part number if you can find it on the part.

    Sometimes the available parts from sources other than the original manufacturer require a little modification like cutting the shaft a bit shorter to fit, but most stuff can be found without going to the original manufacturer.

If it is difficult to find 2933BD/29M33, use MC33269-3,3 for SMD package or LM1117-3,3 for TO-220 package.(datasheet LM1117)
You can find or buy here,in Indonesia:
It's very cheap, about 5000 IDR or it's about half US-$.

G1X circuit diagram is the same as the G1. They differ only on the pedal circuits.

Is the unit old?? Is it stored in an environment that has temperature fluctuations?? It could be the terminals on the input of the unit have dry jointed. This is when the solder lifts away from the circuit board. I have had the same problem on my ZOOM MRS1608 recording desk. Resolder the connections on the input. The base plate will problably remove easy enough to get to the point where the adapter is soldered onto the circuit board.

Good luck

G1x zoom guitar effects no power even using an adaptor


if you're using an adaptor other than the original zoom, make sure it's 300mA or more and try switching the polarity.

G1X not working


The first thing to check is the power source. A weak battery or adapter will cause this.
Beyond checking these the only other problems will be internal and require electronic servicing.,

Where should the Zoom G1X go in a pedal chain?


From an electrical engineering standpoint, an expression or volume pedal should be near the end of the chain so that the other effects don't try to process very weak signals when the volume is very low.

This gives better signal to noise ratio.
