Zoom B3n, Multi Effects and Amp Modelling Unit for Bass Guitar

For me, Zoom have always been at the forefront of my mind whenever I consider purchasing a multi-effects unit. Ever since I purchased the awesome Zoom 2020 back in 1994, I've had nothing but good experiences with their products, and now they've got me hooked again with the incredible Zoom B3n: a multi-effects and amp modelling processor, made specifically for bass guitar!

Lets you sculpt the perfect tone for your bass playing

Like all of Zoom's recent Multi-Effects processors, the B3n allows you to create your own original sound, regardless of what your playstyle or music genre of choice is. Featuring a whole host of amplifier, cabinet and stompbox effects, the B3n is just as good whether you're in the studio, on the road, or even (thanks to the headphone socket) sitting in your bedroom and trying not to annoy the neighbours too much.

67 Built-In Stompbox Effects

With the B3n you have a huge array of effects to play around with, 67 pre-loaded with the potential to download even more via Zoom Guitar Lab! These effects include 19 dynamics and filter effects, 15 overdrive and distortion effects, 17 modulation effects, 11 delay and reverb effects, plus many more!

Emulate A Number of Famous Bass Amp and Cabinet Combinations

Being able to play your favourite song on the bass is just a first step on your journey to faithfully being able to recreate the monstrous tones produced by the bassplaying heroes of yesteryear.

With five different classic amps and five different classic cabs to choose from, not to mention even more amp/cab combinations available via Zoom Guitar Lab, your able to get as close as possible to that elusive sound you've always wanted, without having to take out a mortgage to buy those vintage amplifiers.

Easily Customisable Effects Chains

Whether you want to run just two effects at a time, or up to seven (including amp and cab choices), the B3n gives you that option. Experiment to your heart's content when finding the perfect tones, before saving each and every patch (up to a total of 150!!!) to the B3n's memory bank for fast and easy recall.

Intuitive Control System

The simple layout and controls of the B3n make for a highly intuitive editing experiennce. You get 3 independent LCD display screens (one over each "Stompbox" activation switch) which display your entire effects chain at a glance. Additionally, the tactile control knobs and switches make for effortless editing and deleting of patches - they even let you change the order of the effects in each chain, giving you a near endless list of tonal options to play around with.

Plug In And Play

Unlike some other multi-effects units, the B3n requires no complex setup rituals before you can use it - you literally just plug your bass into the "Input" socket, and then either a set of headphones into the "Headphone" socket, or a cable running to your amp in the "Output" socket. That's it, you're ready to rock!

In addition to the wonderful array of effects and amp modelling available to you, the B3n comes complete with 68 built-in drum rhythm patterns (making it perfect for both practice and solo performances), and an onboard looper that allows you to record and overdub phrases up to 80 seconds long!

ZOOM Guitar Lab Software

Guitar Lab is a free software app from Zoom for either Mac or Windows based PC platforms. Connect your B3n to your computer via the USB socket, boot up Guitar Lab and easily manage your installed patches, download new effects and amp/cab emulators, and even back up all of your settings to your PC incase the unthinkable happens. The simple graphic user interface allows you to manage your effects chains and individual effects via a simple point-and-click functionality, even if you just want to re-name or re-order your custom patches.

Budget Friendly

You'd be forgiven for thinking that an effects processor of this quality might be a little on the expensive side. However, you couldn't be more wrong. At significantly less than £200, the B3n is an absolute steal, and has been solidly constructed to last you for years to come.
