Zoom B3 Bass Guitar Effects and Amp Simulator
Although the advancement of multi-effects processors has made dialing in multiple tones easier and more intuitive for players, many of us are still programmed to feel more comfortable with the traditional single stompbox layout. That’s where the Zoom B3 stands out from the rest of its contemporaries, as the LCD screens on this unit harken back to a time when everything was separated, it also gives a clear illustration as to how effects are being used and makes changing settings very simple. And you’ll have a lot of effects to play with because there are 99 in this unit, along with 12 amp models, all of which can be stored in the 100 user preset slots. Some of the factor presets have been designed by bassists who have changed the world with their tones, including Doug Wimbish (Living Colour), Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones), David Ellefson (Megadeth), and more. An onboard looper pedal gives players 40 seconds to record a phrase and implement unlimited overdubbing. And an included software makes creating your own preset sounds on your computer very easy.
