WE’RE ZOOM. AND WE’RE FOR CREATORS.
Zoom designs and produces a wide array of recording devices, multi-effects processors, effects pedals, digital mixers, and samplers. Our innovative, cutting-edge technology is trusted world-wide by sound designers, musicians, podcasters, filmmakers, location sound professionals, electronic news gatherers, and pretty much anyone who creates amazing, important things. Over the past thirty years, we established a solid reputation as a manufacturer of innovative yet affordable products which are based on original microchip designs.
Founded in 1983 and based in Tokyo, Japan, the Zoom Corporation spent its first years helping other manufacturers develop sound generator LSI, rhythm machines and MIDI synchronizer systems. Our first product was the iconic 9002 multi effect processor for guitarists. The 9002 was a revolution and was used by famous artists across the globe on stage and in the studio. With the 9002 and products like the 2020, 2100, 3000, 505, GFX 707, BFX 708, GFX-8, GFX-4, G1, G2, B1, B2, A3, G2.1u, G7.1ut, G9.2tt, G3, G5, G5n and many more, we established ourselves as one of the leading manufacturers for digital multi effects processors for guitarists and bass player.
Today Zoom produces a wide array of recording devices, including a line of portable “handy” recorders as well as multi-effects processors, effects pedals, field recorders, digital mixers, cameras for musicians and recorder for podcasters. This year we released the new G11 multi effect processor which represents the culmination of our engineering and passion.
Zoom´s corporate culture is a fusion of engineers and artists; a combination of advanced technological skills and the sense and desire to employ them creatively and imaginatively. Our mission is to design, develop and manufacture high-end, and easy-to-use creative tools that allow anyone, from amateur to professional, to more freely express their creative ideas in today’s digitally-driven world.
