The Zoom B3 Bass Effects & Amp Simulator is an all-in-one solution for performing and recording.
The Zoom B3 features 99 world-famous stomp box models, ranging from dynamics and EQs to
overdrives, modulations and delays.
The B3 also offers 12 amp models, including some of the world's most popular bass guitar amps, such as the Ampeg SVT, Fender Bassman 100, Hartke HA3500 and Marshall Super Bass. Each one has controls for Bass, Middle and Treble, and can be mixed and matched with any of the effects.
The Zoom B3 has a 1/4-inch jack input for active and passive pickups and stereo outputs for using the B3 as an effects pedal in a pedal chain. There is a balanced XLR output for using the B3 as an amp simulator to plug directly into a mixing desk, with a pre and post effects switch, allowing the effected sound to go to the main outputs while sending the original analog bass guitar signal directly to the XLR output.
There's also USB connectivity, for using the B3 as a recording interface with the included Steinberg Sequel LE recording software, or any other digital audio workstation. The 40 built-in drum rhythms and tap tempo feature enables easy jamming, and the included looper function allows endless fun and experimentation.
Add to the already impressive feature list the built-in tuner and free Edit&Share software for creating, editing and saving your favourite presets and sharing them with others.
