The Zoom MS-60B Multistomp Bass Effects Pedal combines power and flexibility of a multi-effects pedal and amp modeler in a single stompbox design. With 58 preloaded stompbox effects and amp models and an easy-to-use interface, the Zoom MS-60B offers a versatile functionality for guitar players. With the size and weight of a typical single stompbox, the Zoom MS-60B includes a thorough lineup of high-quality bass effects types. It features 52 stompbox effects and 6 amp models. Along with distortion, reverb, modulation and other classic effects, its amp models simulate some of the most prized pieces of live and studio bass gear.
The LCD shows the current effect in use, while the scrolling function allows you to easily view the flow of your effects chain. With this intuitive, easy-to-use interface, creating amazing sounds is a breeze. The Zoom MS-60B allows you to utilize up to four effects simultaneously, as well as arrange them in any combination. This gives you the ability to craft classic sounds, as well as lush, complex tones. Leave the rules you learned behind and enjoy creative freedom with the Zoom MS-60B. Cut down the size of your pedalboard by adding in Zoom MS-60B to the mix. From a single pedal, you’ll have 58 effects types waiting at your feet to be called-up no matter have often you need them.
The Zoom MS-60B’s front panel features three parameter knobs, which also function as buttons. These buttons can be used to open various menus, where you can then use the parameter knobs to tweak your effects settings to your liking. Remove and/or rearrange effect units, turn the AUTO-SAVE function ON and OFF, recall patches and more with ease and efficiency.
The cutting-edge Zoom ZFX-IV DSP processor can execute sophisticated algorithms using 32-bit floating-point calculations. A sigmoid curve clipper helps create the smoothly clipped waveform characteristics of tubes, providing the most realistic modeling sounds and richest harmonic components to date. Hold the footswitch down to activate the built-in chromatic tuner in an instant. Even on stage during a performance, all you need to do is move your foot to enable tuning. You can choose between a BYPASS mode that turns all the effects off and a MUTE mode that allows you to tune silently. With the Zoom MS-60B, you can program which patches are recalled and the order in which they appear.
Presets that are available right-out-of-the box, the Zoom MS-60B allows you to create and store up to 50 of your original patches. To get you started, 30 of these patches are preprogrammed and form a versatile collection of bass sounds that include some of the most popular stompbox and amp effects, as well as patches personally designed by some of the world’s top bassists.
Using two AA alkaline batteries, you can operate the Zoom MS-60B for up to 7 hours continuously. From rehearsal to the main stage, you can use the Zoom MS-60B with confidence. Power the pedal via AC adapter (sold separately) or USB bus, if you want to use it longer without worrying about battery life. When connected to your computer and Zoom’s website via USB, you can perform system firmware updates to keep the functions of your Zoom MS-60B on the cutting-edge.
