Add to Wish List
The Zoom B3n Multi-Effects Pedal for bass is pre-loaded with 67 high-quality stompbox DSP effects, including 19 dynamics and filter effects, 15 overdrive and distortion effects, 17 modulation effects, 11 delay and reverb effects and more. It's easy to integrate the B3n into any live performance or studio rig. In addition to a standard 1/4" input, there's an auxiliary 1/8" stereo input for connecting smartphones or music players. There's also a dedicated headphone jack for practice, and dual outputs for mono or stereo L/R connection to bass amps, PA systems, and audio interfaces.

The B3n's newly created emulations include five classic bass amps and five matching cabinets that have been modeled to sound and respond like the real thing. To adjust the sound of each model, simply use the B3n's parameter knobs just as you would with analog gear. You can also download even more amp/cabinet combinations via ZOOM Guitar Lab software.

Create Custom Effects Chains
Chain up to seven effects, amps, and cabinets together simultaneously in any order you like to experiment with and create new sounds. You can also store up to 150 of your custom effects chains as patches.

Master Your Sound
The B3n's simple layout and controls make for faster and more intuitive editing. Its three independent LCD screens display your entire effects chain at a glance, and its tactile knobs and switches give you effortless control over adding, editing, deleting, or changing the order of effects.

Just Plug It In and Play
There's no complex setup with the B3n - just plug in and start playing. Thanks to its 68 built-in rhythm patterns, the B3n is great for both practice and solo performances. With the onboard looper, you can record and overdub phrases up to 80 seconds long, creating textured layers of sounds using the effects of your choice.

The looper, rhythm patterns, and delay effects can all be synchronized using a tap tempo function. And a built-in chromatic tuner lets you bypass the currently selected patch while tuning, or mute the signal altogether.

Longtime Zoom user here! Going from an old plastic unit, to a modern Zoom unit can be quite the jump. The all-metal chassis holds-up great, gig to gig, and you will not miss the plastic casing. Lots of great amp and cab models, as well as a host of other effects here. I play in multiple bands in multiple genres, and this thing comes through each and every gig. Biggest con: no balanced out. This is kind of a bummer, but most amps have balanced out, anyway. I always keep a Radial Stage Bug DI in my gig bag for situations where I have to send my effects direct out. Love having a consistent sound, location to location, and the great amp models here allow that. Makes my lil Ampeg PF 300 sound like a bunch of more expensive amps...and pretty well, too! Highly recommended for all the cool bassists.

Bought it about 2 months ago and it's the best thing I could have done. Incredibly easy to use and configure. Very sturdy metal case. Displays are easy to see and read on stage. Power cord is a little flimsy and may break over time, but it's a standard adapter.

I've been using this multi-effects pedal for about a month, including a couple of gigs. The interface is easy to use, and the effects sound great. The corresponding GuitarLab software makes management even easier. Have had many compliments on my sound with this pedal. The case is sturdy and seems like it will stand up over time. My only worry- the power adapter plug is really snug in the jack- I worry that over time and use, the plug or jack will break.
