"ZOOM" into style!
by Frobie from Findlay, OhioThe Zoom B1x is an AMAZING pedal! Sound quality is exceptional and very capable for recording aplications. The "ZNR" feature is essentially a noise gate that is very effective at keeping pickup "hum... read more [+]" at bay. This pedal has some very nice amp models that are very close to the real ones and sound very believable and "tube-like".

Programming is very easy after reading the manual and some very creative "useful" effects are possible. There are great achievable "wah" effects in this as well as very nice reverbs and delays. Many of the effects are in stereo which has been great for recording. The drum samples sound very good and powerful in a mix, too! I am very happy with this B1x and I can't wait to use it on stage. This was my first "ZOOM/Samson" purchase and I am very pleased with it's sound quality- especially at this low price point! Even though the case is made of plastic (very tough) the two switches are very solid feeling and the effects switch instantly without any delay.
I recommend this highly- you'll enjoy many hours of experimenting with the sounds. Enjoy! close [-]
