For such a small, solid and compact pedal, the MS-100BT has a lot to offer. This is the world's first multi-effects pedal with Bluetooth functionality brought to you by Zoom. This multistomp pedal already has a mixture of 100 different well-known amp models and effects, but you have the ability to expand this even further thanks to the Bluetooth technology and a free app available in the Apple iOS store.
Zoom recognise that modern technology is always advancing, and forms a part of daily life all over the world now. Bluetooth is a quick and efficient way of sending and receiving data and is used in various types of devices. Now, this multi-effects pedal also has Bluetooth technology. This allows you to update firmware on the pedal effortlessly and quickly.
Zoom launched their own app in the Apple store - StompShare. You can download StompShare for free and browse their virtual effects store online. This app holds a wide range of effects and amp models, allowing you to listen to demos and check descriptions of various effects and amp models as well as getting handy suggestions on how best to use them.
Stompshare also enables you to try before you buy, so you can test out different effects and amp models using your own instruments and equipment, even from the comfort of your own home. The online app offers a 15-minute trial to let you play with each parameter while you can simultaneously adjust the pedal to match.
The MS-100BT features 100 different DSP effects to choose from, split into easy-to-use sections; Dynamics / Filter, Overdrive / Distortion, Amp models, Modulation / Special effects, Delay / Reverb. The pedal has been built using Zoom's Noise Reduction algorithm to keep your guitar's tone completely pure.
The MS-100BT offers 8 incredibly authentic amp models, tube and solid-state, mirroring world-famous amps from brands such as Fender, Marshall and Vox to name but a few.
A wide range of classic and modern effects are available; chorus, tremolo, auto-rotary speaker simulation and auto-panning, as well as delay and reverb. With such a great choice of effects to hand, you can add many extra elements to your tone.
The Zoom MS-100BT enables you to dial in up to 6 different effects at the same time, in any order you choose. The pedal already has 30 preset patches that can be overwritten, and you can create up to 26 of your own on top of this. There are 50 memory areas to save your custom-edited effects. Running through the patches is made simple by the footswitch, ideal for any live musician. When you have made custom edits and effects you can be assured that you won't lose it as the pedal has an Auto Save function.
Zoom have added a built-in chromatic tuner for accurate standard and drop tunings (of up to 3 semitones). Tuning is easy to see on the pedal thanks to the backlit LCD screen.
With effects such as delay, modulation, vibrato and tremolo (and many more), the addition of a Tap Tempo feature allows you to sync your sound in real time.
For any musician it's important that a pedal does not cut out during use. The Zoom MS-100BT can last up to 7 hours with just two AA alkaline batteries or NiMH rechargeable batteries. This allows plenty of usage from practising right through to the live gig. There are also options to power up using an AC adapter or USB port.
The Zoom MS-100BT with Bluetooth is an innovative, cutting-edge effects pedal, small enough for your pedalboard but with a huge range of sounds and models to choose from.
