The power of a multi-effects rig with stompbox-style simplicity

The sheer complexity of most multi-effects pedals can seriously limit your ability to use them live, and convoluted controls quickly turn them into nothing more than a collection of preset tones. The intuitive, stompbox-style layout of the Zoom B3 lets you use this multi-effects bass pedal like a traditional pedalboard. Arranging the order of the B3's effects is simple, and each of its three effects sections has its own footswitch, high-visibility display, and trio of parameter knobs. This makes it incredibly easy to tweak your tone on the fly.

Super-realistic amp modeling plus tons of stompbox effects

Sure the B3 bass effects pedal is easy to use, but how does it sound? Thanks to Zoom's redesigned tube saturation engine, the B3 gives you access to amp tones ranging from warm and fat R&B bass to the percussive punch of modern metal - and everything in between! In all, you get a dozen amazing amp models to choose from. Add to that 99 stompbox effects that cover fuzz, synth, chorus, reverb, and much more. Plus you get patches designed by Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Frank Bello (Anthrax) and Doug Wimbish (Living Colour) to get you started. And thanks to the included Edit&Share software, creating your own B3 presets is a synch!

Loaded with a full set of fun and useful bonus features

As if its amazing tone and simplicity weren't enough, Zoom decided to turbocharge their B3 bass effects pedal with tons of extra goodies. First, there's the built-in 40-second phrase looper, which lets you record with infinite sound-on-sound overdubbing. There's also a killer drum machine built into the B3 that comes loaded with 40 exciting patterns - just what you need to get into the groove. What more could you ask for? How about a built-in USB audio interface? That's right, you can even use your Zoom B3 to record in your favorite DAW.
