    Clear and solid bass sound thanks to 96kHz sampling.

    The sonic frequencies generated by an electric bass are about 40 to 600 Hz, but harmonics go all the way up to the ultrasonic frequency range. The Zoom B1 offers ultra-high resolution signal processing with 24-bit/96 kHz sampling, rivaling the best rackmount processors. The dynamic, wide-range bass signal retains its full impact resulting in clear, powerful tone that retains a distinct presence.

    ZFX-3 — the new-generation 32-bit DSP
    The heart of any multi-effect device is its processor and decoder section. Zoom elevates performance to the next level with its newly developed ZFX-3 chip. Its 32-bit architecture means outstanding performance and smooth, detailed signal processing. Fine nuances of fingering and touch come through without any deterioration.

    13 different amp/stomp box modeling choices
    Whether you want the massive sonic push of an all-tube amp, the sweet and mellow tone of a vintage model for melodic phrasing or the sound of a high-power wide-range modern amp, the choice is yours. There are seven bass amp settings that range from Rock and Pop to Fusion and Jazz. Plus, five unique distortion pedal sounds as well as a tube preamp for adding warmth are also available, letting you create exactly the bass sound that you want. Freely adjust the mix between drive sound and original sound to create deep distortion for real punch.

    46 dedicated bass effects
    Eight modules designed for bass guitar offer a total of 46 effects. A limiter/compressor lets you control peaks and ensure that levels are matched, while the three-band equalizer makes it easy to taylor your sound further. Auto wah is indispensable for playing that funky sound, and the octaver impressively enhances the low range. A defret effect gives you the special tone of a fretless bass. Detune produces a chorus effect with moderate amounts of modulation. Other studio-class effects include a long delay with settings to 5000 ms and a harmonized pitch shifter.

    Comments about Zoom B1 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

    This is a decent pedal. Not great but still decent. My main uses are as a tuner and a sound gate. There are a lot of effects, and guaranteed not all of them will be used. The amp simulation is good, except for distortion and synth settings, better to get a stand alone pedal if you want these effects. Comes with a power supply, or can be used with 4 AA batteries. I would recommend this pedal to beginners, but in a short time you'll be desiring more.

    Typical Zoom fun fun for cheap cheap

    By AbuseTheMuses

    from Chicago, IL

    Comments about Zoom B1 Bass Multi-Effects Pedal:

    Modeller: sounds good. Hiss on some models curable with the ZNR setting. Lots of tones, most usable, all EQable. Presets are okay but need to have their levels even out between them, some way louder than others. Meh, screw presets.EFFECTS: More than most people even need. 'normal' ones sound just fine, a few extra gimicky ones. To get them in stereo you will need a TRS cable.DRUM: metronome with drum sounds. You can't program it. Good as a jam buddy I guess.TUNER: Harder to read than most. It CAN, just takes a while.INTERFACE: one knob picks what you are editing and the other knob tweaks it. floor buttons move up and down patches or bypass/tune. Display is not very helpful until you have used it for a bit.VALUE: duh. I have had mine for 3 years. You gotta get power supply for it and external expression pedal if you want to do the volume/wah/etc with yo foot (or get the B1x version). Extremely GOOD VALUE compared to single effects pedals that cost more and only do 1 thing. I use mine on stage and recordings just fine.
