OVERVIEW

Affordable and amazingly powerful.

The Toneworks AX5B Bass Modeling Processor is loaded with 58 modeling effects powered by Korg's proprietary REMS modeling technology, including a wide range of amps, cabinets, modulation, and delay/reverb effects. Not only does the AX5B pack a wide variety of essential effects into a compact processor, these are the same quality effects as those found in Korg's top-of-the-line AX3000B. The AX5B features a built-in expression pedal that can be used to control volume, wah, and many other effect parameters, giving you a virtually limitless range of realtime control and playing dynamics. With easy operation that will have even a beginner playing great sounds right away, a compact size that slips easily into the pocket of your gig bag, and the flexibility of battery-powered operation, this unit makes it easy for you to enjoy top-level bass sound in any situation.

FEATURES
  • 58 types of REMS modeling effect variations, with up to six simultaneous effects (including noise reduction) plus a volume pedal.
  • 16 drive/amp types and 10 cabinet types that simulate the sound of some of the most sought-after amps.
  • A wide range of effects with quality that rivals dedicated units.
  • Full parameter editing of all effects in four effect categories (pre-effect, drive/amp, modulation, delay/reverb).
  • An expression pedal that you can use to control volume, wah, or nearly any effect parameter, giving you a virtually limitless range of expressive potential.
  • 80 programs at your beck and call, with 40 presets and 40 user sound programs that can contain your favorite effect settings.
  • Built-in auto chromatic tuner.

I picked this up with a giftcard after using a previous Korg bass amp simulator. It's nice and compact, so it fit into my pedalboard with very little re-arranging. It also has a low profile, so not much to worry about accidentally changing settings during a show.Construction is decent. It's plastic through, so I'm not expecting this to last forever, which I'm ok with. Overall it feels sturdy though, which I was surprised about, given that it lacks the metal components other floorboards have.I dropped this into my signal chain as a way to further refine my sound, and it sounded pretty muddy right away, and I wasn't a fan of the presets. But here's the beauty...in the 2 minutes between songs (literally 2 minutes), I had programmed a killer bass tone without adjusting my amp or other pedals. That means it's very easy to use. The band commented on it right away, as it added punch and clarity. There's a little buzz, but this thing was well worth the money.

I purchased this pedal a few months ago and decided to put my input on it, first of all it's all plastic. For being all plastic I'm pretty impressed with the strength. I've stomped, kicked, dropped, slammed and just treated it like i could care less. Yet in the end it help up. I mainly got it for distortion effects considering I'm in a metal/hardcore band and i was expecting something ehh. Come to find out the pedal was half way decent. It took a little getting use to but i would say save your money and buy something you KNOW you'll be happy with. All the effects sound okay. I'm not excited nor upset at this pedal but I'm getting the ME-50B this weekend and I'm sure this pedal will be a backup if anything.In the end, save up and get something better.

Good for the price

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This proccessor is just alright. It hold up really well and can take a few drops onto cement too! One negative of it is that it doesnt come with a power supply, so you have to buy one of those too for around $20, or use 4 AA bateries which dont last too long. The other negative is that there are a lot of effects on it, but a lot of them are the same or very close to others. Its good for the price.

Great....for practice

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I like how my bass sounds. This pedal colors that even when I removed all effects or go to bypass. And behind EVERY effect there is a very terrible buzz and I've checked all my other gear. Maybe it's worth it for entry level practice purposes and as a tuner(which isn't very good though) to see what kind of effects you like, but NEVER perform with. Because of this though, I was turned off to bass effects for a very long time and probably will remain that way.

It`s not bad i just got it and some of the effects sound the same but not bad. And the wah is really small and my foot is huge so that kinda sucks but this is pretty good for the price.

I've had my Korg AX5-B for about a year now and it still has a couple surprises in it. I use it whenever I do live shows and its just fun to mess around with. Overall its a need for any bassist.

Pretty Cool

I have never played bass with a modeling processor before, but man is it cool to mess around with. I have had no issue with my pedal, you can layer affect on top of each other. Overall I would say this is a great unit, you can beat the price.

Pretty Cool

By Stone Free Bass

from Heflin, AL

This unit is pretty cool. I've been gigging weekly with this thing for almost a year now, throwing in as an inexpensive experiment. Mainly was looking for a cheap compressor and this thing was just what I was looking for. Noise reduction is also cool as I play a vintage Fender bass and thru an old Fender Bassman. It really eliminates the 60Hz buzz from these old tubes and single coils. Battery life is pretty low tho, so a power supply is a necessary investment

Versatility for cheap

By barefoot_bass

from Ames, IA

The biggest problem with this processor is that all the effects sound sysnthesized. You can easily tell they are not a product of dedicated pedals. However, the AX5B does offer a great range of tones and effects. The drive amp models can give you from a smooth overdrive, to a hard crunching distortion, to a sweet vintage fuzz. Great versatility in the chorus and delay as well. With effects, you get what you pay for, but I doubt there's a more versatile processor for the price.

Excellent value!

By VIKING

I've been playing bass for around 6 months and wanted to experiment with some different effects. All I can say is WOW!. Could possibly be the best $ I have ever dropped on an effects pedal. I have played guitar for over 30 years... and some of these effects can easily work with my Les Paul. It is highly configurable, so those looking for an exact sound should be able to achieve it, but the presets are great, making it very much "plug and play" for those with less experience. If you are even mildly considering this pedal, GET IT. You will be shocked at what you get for your money... it was easily worth twice what I paid.
