Zoom B3 Bass Effects & Amp Simulator Pedal


This amazing pedal in a very good condition has 99 great-sounding DSP effects plus 12 amp and cabinet models give you all the tools you need to craft stunning bass tones, both onstage and in the studio. Up to 3 effects  can be chained together, and 3 stompbox-style displays—each with its own dedicated foot switch and control knobs—make editing fast and easy. The B3 is the total package, complete with an onboard chromatic bass tuner and integrated rhythm machine / Looper.


The B3 provides a whopping 111 different onboard DSP effects and amp/cabinet models.

These include compressors, noise gates, filters, equalizers, and octave dividers, as well as boosters, overdrives, fuzzes, phasers, and flangers, plus chorus, pitch shift, tremolo, vibrato, a sub-octave generator, and an intelligent bass synthesizer that plays along in key—even a DeFret effect that changes the tone of a fretted bass into that of a fretless. There are simulations of both classic and contemporary pedals such as the MXR DynaComp, Aphex Punch Factory, dbx 160A, BBE Sonic Maximizer, Q-Tron Envelope Filter, Moog MF-101 and BOSS ODB-3, DS-1, CE-1 and Metal Zone, as well as the Electro-Harmonix Bass Big Muff, SansAmp Bass Driver DI, MXR Bass D.I.+, Avalon Design U5, and Xotic EP Booster and Bass BB Preamp. Original effects include Zoom's Noise Reduction (ZNR) algorithm, a bass frequency-specific Auto-Wah, and a "talking" modulator. You'll also find 20 delays and natural-sounding reverbs here, including rooms, halls, arenas, plates, springs, and tape delay simulators, as well as dual effects such as compressor/distortion, phaser/distortion and compressor/auto-wah.


The B3 has a USB port for connection to any Macintosh or Windows computer, allowing it to act as a 2-input / 2-output audio interface. Simply launch your favorite DAW or the included Steinberg Sequel LE software and start laying down tracks. Direct monitoring during recording ensures zero latency, allowing you to overdub with ease.
