The Zoom B1Xon Bass Guitar Multi Effects and Expression Pedal is packed with everything the awesome B1Xon multi effects pedal has - and then some! With this little beauty, there are 105 bass effects to explore and tinker around with. You can pack a punch with overdrive and distortion, tighten up your low-end with compression, or weave some intricate modulation, delay or reverb into your signal. There is even a selection of amplifier models for you to take advantage of. You can use up to 5 effects simultaneously, whilst chaining them together in any order that pleases you.
The B1Xon has an integrated expression pedal, which allows you to attenuate and manipulate effects in real-time. Whether you're looking to push the gain or volume setting, sweep through a wah effect or filter, or affect delay time or modulation speed - perfect for practising your pedal technique, laying down some intricate recordings or expressing yourself beautifully when playing live.
The simple and straightforward programming user interface makes life much easier. The large backlit LCD screen give you an easy to read display, whilst a range of advanced editing features allow you to easily organise patches for later recall during live performances. You can even scroll through patches silently while keeping the current patch operational, lining up the patch that you want to use next without affecting your tone.
There are 68 internal rhythm patterns, which are perfect for practising along to or performing live jams. Everything from rock to jazz, metal to Motown is covered, with quarter-note, eight-note- and sixteen-note rhythms. The headphone socket enables you to practise silently wherever you are, whilst you can connect an external sound source to the Aux input for playback through the B1Xon. Thanks to the onboard chromatic tuner - which supports all standard bass tunings -, you can stay in tune no matter what.
The built-in Looper feature offers up to 30 seconds of CD-quality (16-bit, 44.1kHz) audio recording, where you can set the loop length to your desired amount, or to a preset number of quarter notes. You can even set your loop to any of the internal rhythm patterns, and automatic quantization maintains seamless start and end times. The built-in expression pedal enables you to control input level, output level, or any selected effect parameter in real-time.
The Zoom B1Xon Bass Guitar Multi Effects and Expression Pedal is perfect for those who are looking for an affordable, no-nonsense multi effects unit that is chock full of features that puts other units to shame. Bringing together a wealth of effects and amp tones to play with, highly intuitive programming interface, expression and looper control, with the ability to power via optional power supply or four AA batteries, you have an ideal practise, jam or performance partner.
