Great sound, great price

I play at a large church and had been plugging my Fender Jazz Bass into a direct box with no other effects. I felt the quality was lacking somewhat. I bought the MS-60B based on reviews and audio tests I was able to hear on YouTube. The unit is simple to operate and has a nice built-in tuner. The first time I used it I selected one of the preset memories (SVT) and played through a song service. The sound tech said it really sounded great, and was giving him a nice full sound to work with. The sound is really clean too. For the price, this was a great buy, and is all most people would need.

Zoom MS60B

I originally wanted to have a custom built rack preamp to use in my bass rig. Let's just say the price was over 5x what I paid for this pedal. I wanted the ability to model amps, set switchable eqs, have a good compressor onboard, and use a few mod/reverb effects. I didn't want all the exotic, warbly, useless stuff. For what I paid for the pedal, it pays for itself in just the tuner and noise gate, both being some of the most high quality tools I've used. The amp modeling, while there are only 6 amp models, is stupendous. I love the gritty, punchy SVT and the clear and harmonic Markbass. The compressors are high quality too. You can pay over $150 on comp. pedals like Markbass, TRex, etc. And get JUST THAT. But the clarity, transparency, and options of the comps (the 160 being my favorite) is superior. The eq's (the para and graphic) work very well too. They do precisely what you need with no added noise. One of my favorites is the exciter. Adds beef and clarity to the signal. Yet I have little use for the dynamic filters, they seem of good quality. I use the Ztron on my bass synth setting and it adds throatiness and an unusual timbre. Which brings me to the synths. I've tried out the Roland and Boss multi effect systems and the synthesizer settings are some of the highest quality I've heard. They gate well and are very practical. The modulation effects are great too. I particularly use the pitch shift, bass chorus, and hall reverb. They track well and don't warble. Sometimes the pitch shift doesn't like you though and just quits for a moment. This is likely an oddity. Overall, the interface is very usable. Largely noiseless operation, even with distortions. Great pedal! Don't spend more than $300 when you can spend $99.

Yeah, It's that Good

I have been playing for 14 years now and have always been resistant to effects pedals for a number of reasons. Cost, Infrequency of use, loss of usable bottom end and just figuring out when the effects are actually adding more than a dry signal would contribute. Basically for me it was what kind of value is this piece of equipment contributing to my overall tone vs. what it cost me. This little pedal addressed all my concerns and more. The construction is of very high quality, Nice metal casing sturdy feel so an A for it there. The effects themselves sound very good as well. But the real standout feature is the amp modeling, they are perfect for coloring your sound in just the right way for a particular song. I am of the opinion that less is more when it comes to effects and if you like having them for adding a bit of depth and complexity to your tone this thing is a must have. It does have a couple of drawbacks however. I have found the majority of the presets to be fairly useless for my purposes but they could work for some of them are also cranked so you will need to go through and adjust levels, I will likely be overwriting them. The overdrives are highly over saturated, Upon a first listen I thought they were useless, not so, they just need to be dialed WAY back on the tone and gain settings and they actually provide a nice beefy overdrive. A firmware update could address this. Also, when the treble, gain or output levels get past a particular point there is a bit of noise to contend with but as long as you balance it so your amp is pushing most of the volume this is not an issue, just a matter of eq'ing The user interface is highly intuitive and with a quick read of the manual is a fast learn. As far as usability in a live setting the footswitch patch cycle function is a great feature but you must have your tone completely set for effective use and individual effects can not be switched on or off in this setting. Somewhere down the road an 3 button foot switch that could be tied in via the USB out to control the individual effects in the patches would be a nice accessory offer. But overall I could not be happier with this processor and highly recommend it.

Great tool and superb value

Any one thing about this pedal would be worth $99 ! The 30 Presets would be worth the price, or any one of a number of the individually modeled effects would be worth it too, even the 6 name brand amp heads would be worth it. These effects are all amazing. If you used this pedal in a live performance, no-one in the audience would be able to tell that the effect chain came from this pedal or a group of 4 individual Big Name pedals. For 99% of us this is all you need to get your sound. I don't like fiddling around with settings so these 30 presets were just what I was looking for. This is a trouble free, low hassle way to get a package of pedals and amps and pre-amps for under a $100. I wish I would have had the guitar version of this before I spent $800 on a pedal board set-up years ago. If you like to play your bass instead of tweaking a preset sound, this is the answer, if you like the option of tweaking presets, then the software architecture will allow you to adjust any number of parameters to fine tune your sound. Best, pedal for a amp and bass rig. I also ordered the optional power supply so I wouldn't have to deal with battery change outs.

Versatile, useful, inexpensive, quality pedal

I am mostly a double bassist, but occasionally double on bass guitar for a pit orchestra or in a church band. I like to keep my rig light and compact so I can carry my upright electric, bass guitar, and amp in one trip. I am not really a heavy effects user, and really could, and often do, get along just fine without them. However, this pedal fits in my case and gives me some basic tone shaping tools, compressor/limiter for when I want to slap my bass guitar, and a host of other effects that I would never purchase as individual pedals for cost/portability reasons, but now can mess around with if I want to (The filter effects are especially fun with my upright electric). I can go to a gig with my bass case in one hand (the MS-60B fits inside), my GK microbass combo over my shoulder, my electric upright in my other hand, and sound like I have a rack full of effects if I want to.

Zoom MS-60B MultiStomp for Bass

But the soul of this pedal lies in its effects. Zoom did a great job of with the factory presets. Some standouts: The reggae patch is simply low-end heaven....
