The MS-60B is a superb multi-effects bass effects processor that will save a lot of room on any pedalboard. Zoom have built this compact bass pedal with plenty of effects to choose from to diversify the tone of your bass guitar. The pedal has a slick, easy-to-use design and can be used in either the studio or live onstage.
The Zoom MS60B offers 58 different bass effects all in one compact multistomp pedal. The effects are split into five main sections; Dynamics / Filter, Overdrive / Distortion, Amp, Modulation / Special Effects and Delay / Reverb. This pedal opens up a universe of bass tones and amp models, such as the Fender Bassman among others. Add chorus, tremolo and pitch shifting too, or experiment with special effects such as a DeFret effect which transforms your bass into a fretless one.
The multistomp effects pedal has a 1/4 inch input jack that can take signal from passive and active bass guitars, plus dual output 1/4 inch jacks for stereo recording ability.
The pedal allows you to use four different effects at the same time in any order. Store your own edited effects in one of the 50 patch memories, 30 of which are preset patches with factory settings. For live musicians this pedal is ideal, allowing you to manually set up 26 patches that you can flick through using the footswitch. A Tap Tempo function gives you the choice of various delay and modulation effects to suit what you are playing at any given time.
The MS-60B has a built-in chromatic tuner, making it incredibly simple to retune your bass wherever you are. The backlit LCD screen makes it easy to read, even on a dark stage, and features a contrast control.
Zoom include two AA LR6 batteries with the MS-60B, but the pedal can run on alkaline or rechargeable NiMH batteries, and the pedal automatically comes on when you insert a connector to the input jack. When the pedal has not been used for a while, the Power Management setting will kick in to save battery.
With alkaline AA batteries the MS-60B can be used for up to 7 hours, plenty of time for recording sessions and live sets. However the pedal can also be powered either by an AC adapter or USB via the port. An operation manual also comes with the Zoom MS-60B.
The Zoom MS-60B Multistomp Effects Pedal is a great bass pedal, compact and well-designed to improve any pedalboard.
