Zoom G5 Atau Line 6 Pod HD300?


Kesinambungan entri Hepi;) Pemuzika semalam. Ikut perjanjian sebelum Zoom G5 ini ditukar (swap) dengan Pod HD300 aku, kedua-dua pihak diberi masa seminggu untuk memandu-uji dan membiasakan diri. Jika kedua-dua pihak berpuas-hati dan setuju, barulah transaksi diteruskan, Jika tidak, akan dipulangkan semula.


Sebelum aku mengambil keputusan memilih Pod HD300 hampir lima tahun lepas semasa YES 2012, G5 merupakan pilihan utama aku. Hanya kalah kerana Pod HD300 disertakan dengan hadiah percuma beg Line 6 FG5 sedangkan G5 tiada apa-apa hadiah percuma ditawarkan. Harga runcit beg FG5 pun dah RM200+, kira lagi berbaloi kan?


Pertama sekali yang aku perasan ialah dari segi kualiti bunyi, memang sama dengan *MS-50G. Mungkin disebabkan teknologi yang digunakan adalah sama (chip ZFX-IV).


Mengekalkan tradisi energizer pada model G7/G9, ciri-ciri tidak ada pada model G1/G2/G3. Kalau tak silap model-model terkini G3n/G3Xn/G5n juga tidak memiliki tube booster, kenapa?


Unit ini masih menggunakan firmware v1.10, jadi aku update kepada v1.20 yang diperolehi daripada website Zoom.

Dipendekkan cerita... Kelebihan berbanding Pod HD300:
  1. Kuantiti modeling amp yang lebih banyak 22 jenis, yang penting ada acoustic simulator.
  2. Senang diedit, kalau dah biasa dengan pedal-pedal Zoom, tak sampai 10 minit boleh serasi.
  3. Effect-chain boleh disusun ikut suka hati.
  4. Ada drum machine
  5. Ada tube booster, boleh boost volume dan tone, sesuai untuk solo.
  6. Editor software yang lebih mesra pengguna.

Kelemahan berbanding Pod HD300:
  1. Hanya ada satu output XLR, ada dua pada Pod HD300 (stereo).
  2. Tiada modeling khas untuk bass, Pod HD300 ada Flip-Top (Ampeg Portaflex).
  3. Expression pedal (Z-pedal) yang pada pendapat aku kurang tegap, kadang-kadang boleh "terkehel".
  4. LCD besar yang senang rosak, antara masalah yang selalu dihadapi oleh rakan-rakan yang menggunakan G3/G3X/G5. Unit ini pun sudah ada menunjukkan masalah pada LCD pertama dan ketiga.
Mungkin disebabkan masalah (2) dan (3) tersebut, varian terkini G3n/G3Xn/G5n tidak lagi menggunakan LCD yang besar, begitu juga dengan teknologi Z-pedal.

Jadi aku membuat keputusan untuk tidak memilih unit G5 ini dan kembali kepada Pod HD300 kerana:
  1. Modeling Treadplate (Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier), Angel F-Ball (ENGL Fireball 100) dan Solo (Soldano SLO100) pada Pod HD300 lebih umph!~ (high definition) dan serasi dengan muzik yang aku mainkan.
  2. Expression pedal pada Pod HD300 lebih tegap.
  3. Unit Pod HD300 aku masih nampak baru walaupun sudah berusia hampir lima tahun, berbanding unit G5 ini yang nampak bermusim.
