Hello ashbass, I recently reading your g5 moods page and noticed that in one section of your instruction you quote the black wire as being common and then elsewhere you quote the green as being common. My question is please clarify. Ive also read that people have tried your mods without success. I'm not surprised your instructions are rather vague. Disappointed wouldbe modder

Hi,

just to give a little update on my broken G3X.
I send it in for repair, they told me that it is repairable but costs 90 Euro (about 105$).:-(
This was way to much, so I bought a used one in very good condition for 99 Euro.:-)

But now I do not dare to make the mod again, I fear the G3X will break again.

Regards

Marc-Antón

Mr Ashbass,
I am looking for a G5 and I like your mods. Would it be possible to connect the scroll switches to the z-pedal and use it for scrolling left and right. I really have no need for the zpedal anyway

ashbass reply:
That seems a good idea. But to have the zpedal reassigned like that is out of my league if even possible.

I would like global parameters such as master level, connected equipment type, USB audio monitoring balance, recording level to be modified from prog. Edit & share or remain stored at next reboot.
If the zoom would send us the midi map maybe we could do something.

ashbass reply:
Some users have experimented with MIDI on their pedals. Search youtube for some. Zoom won't be handing anything out. There is a lot that Zoom could have done to make these pedals even more than they are now and your ideas are good ones. Just ones that we'll never see incorporated into a new pedal or version of one.

Hi ashbass!!

I'm really impress with the mods you did with G3 G3x and G5.

I have G3X and i have a little knowledge to do this with the guide of your tutorials but i got confuse with a lot of mods you did. Some are for lower version of g3x and some are for the latest version of g3x and i also saw the all in one mod you did with G5.

Is it possible with g3x to have the all in one mod the same you did with g5? Or what is the latest mod that i will follow for g3x mod?

ashbass reply:
You can do all the mods on the G3X. Use the Ver 2 mod instructions for Patch and Scroll mods. The rest of them are the same and have no version preference.

Hello:

I am a happy owner (or I was until this evening) of a Zoom G5. Unfortunately, when I turned on my unit this evening for some guitar practice I discovered that the first LCD screen turned completely black and remained that way making it unusable. The unit was working perfectly fine the previous evening and I am the only person who has access to it or uses it.

The first LCD screen starts normally (blank/clear during the initial “Zoom” display) but then it goes totally dark/black as soon as it gets to the "G5 Ver 1.2" screen and then that one LCD remains black until I have no choice but to turn off the unit. Have you had any experience with this? Do you think that this might be something that can be repaired? My warranty is, of course, expired by now.

Thank you for any suggestions that you can offer,

Ish

ashbass reply:
That's a real drag, Ish. I don't know how to fix that and am pretty sure that ZOOM won't send you a replacement LCD screen. Some other people with the same problem as you have tried. You might be able to find a broken G pedal from somewhere and use one of its panels; they should all be interchangeable.

Hi,

I have the same problem as Mr. MPow, since yesterday the Patch Select Mod did not work anymore, also the scroll-, tap-, rhythm- and total button does not work anymore. I removed the mod an made a factory reset, no chance, it did not work. Any ideas or is it time to buy a Zoom G3n? ;-)

Regards

ashbass reply:
Your problem is strange like his in that the mod worked for some time and then stopped. I don't have an answer.

Hi Ash,
I bought a 2nd hand Randall RD1C and I've modded it as you have don on your 5W, with the switch too. It work very well!!!
I'd like to upgrade it to 5W, changing the power tube and maybe other components.
Do you know if it is possible and what I should change?
I'm searching the schematics, but is impossible to find them.

Thanks a lot in advance and best regards.

ashbass reply:
Glad you got it work on your RD1C. I don't have any schematics or know how to upgrade your amp, sorry. Best bet is to look for a second hand one IMO.

Hey Ash,

First off I'd like to say thanks for all your awesome instructions and information. I modded my G3 a few years back and it made the pedal so much more useful. Recently though, I've lost a large portion of the pedal's functionality. All of the LED buttons across the top stopped working with the exception of Global and Store/Swap. As such, the mods/pedal I made no longer works. I checked all my solder joints and everything seems to be fine. I'm curious if you had any insight on how to remedy this issue. Thanks for your time.

-Mike

ashbass reply:
This is a problem I've heard of before. But the mod pedal always still worked. And the problem in these cases was noted just after doing the mods. Depending on how long ago your mods were made you might have used jacks that needed to be insulated from chasis of the pedal. In that case, over time the jack may have worn through and you're mod is shorting out the small buttons' functionality. The way to really test is to remove the mods all together and see if you are back to normal.
