Zoom B3n Bass Multi-Effects Pedal

The Zoom B3n is an intuitive Multi-Effects Processor for bassists that allows you to create authentic sounds and have complete versatility. The B3n lets you create your own original sound, no matter the kind of music you play. This bass pedal has countless amp, cabinet, and stompbox effects that you can use on stage or in the studio. Plus, its editing features are simple enough that you can tweak your sound even when you're on the road.

67 Built-In Stompbox Effects for Monster Tone

The B3n 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.

Faithful Bass Amp and Cabinet Emulations

The B3n's 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 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.

Connect, Perform, and Record

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. Add the Zoom FP02M expression pedal via the dedicated control input for real-time control over effects parameters.

Zoom Guitar Lab Software

Zooms free Guitar Lab Mac/Windows software lets you manage your patches and download new effects and amp/cabinet emulators via a USB connection to your B3n. It includes both a Patch Manager for effects chains and an Effects Manager, with a simple graphic user interface that provides point-and-click control over re-naming or re-ordering your custom patches.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "More than a Multi-Effects Unit"
Overall: I was looking to use this unit to add a variety of effects to my bass sound. What I found was that the amplifier models loaded into the unit sound so good that it can in fact be used as a complete pre-amp. I have only had the device for a little more than a week, but I have played it at a couple of live performances and it sounded amazing. I ended up using the Dual-Comp compressor with the Aguilar bass amp model straight into the effects return of my amp, bypassing my built-in pre-amp, and was really happy with the sound I was getting. As far as useful features are concerned, it has an auxiliary input jack for a stereo line in from a phone or other device, so it can be used to play along with an MP3. It has both left and right outputs; the left output is in stereo and can be used with headphones so the device is a great-sounding practice amp. It has a built-in tuner that can be used with either a live or muted signal. All of the sound patches with which I experimented sounded great, and there was no discernible noise added to my signal. It is solidly-built, but not as sturdy as some of the units I have looked at. It seems easy enough to use, but there is a LOT of content to digest. My biggest concern is that there are a lot of small buttons that can be accidentally tapped, and if you do hit one by accident you can find that you have completely re-set the patch you are using. That happened to me twice while playing live, and it was a big distraction trying to dial things back to where I had them set initially. There is no XLR output from the device, which I have read some people complaining about, but I have other DI options so that is not a concern for me. Overall I am very happy with this device. It sounds great, it is very quiet, and it probably has more functions than I will ever find the opportunity to use.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Very Happy"
Overall: I have owned multiple Zoom multi effect pedals over the years, 506II Bass, 607 Bass, B2, B9.1ut. I always thought they were great practice/recording tools, but I would never use them in a live situation. Some of the sounds were just too artificial. All units had somewhat good compression, maybe a solid fuzz/distortion or two, a semi usable chorus/reverb/phaser, but nothing as good as standalone pedals. The B9.1ut came closest, but the user experience, for me at least, was a bit overwhelming. I'm also not sure if I purchased a bad unit (bought second hand), but the transition between manual and patch just wasn't as seamless as I'd hoped for. I really wanted to like the unit especially with the Z pedal. Very cool concept. I just couldn't get it as usable as I wanted. The lack of the drum patterns also was disappointing on the B9.1ut as I used them so much on the B2. I dealt with it by using the line in and ran my Alesis drum machine. Worked fine, but I had to use two units. So, there is a bit of my history with Zoom pedals. Now for the Zoom B3N. I went in with a very closed mind. I intentionally tried to hate the pedal and just figured it would be more of the normal close but no cigar. HOLY POOP!!! This thing quickly changed my mind in about 10min. The user experience was great. Exactly what I was hoping the B9.1ut would be. Extremely easy to change from tuner, to manual, to patch. The many of the stock patches are usable as they are. The editing app is awesome. You can change the effects, position on the pedal board, parameters, names all real time while connected. The only thing I really don't like about this pedal is the drum machine. The sounds are not as good as the B2 and you have to assign a rhythm pedal to each patch to use them. In a way it's kind of cool. on the B2 I'd usually find a usable beat when playing around with an effect but you always must reset it each time you played as there was no way to save it. Now you can on the B3N. I also purchased a Yamaha expression pedal to use and it works great and is $20 cheaper than the Zoom pedal. I know some people say they won't leave the B3 for the B3N due to no DI, battery operation ability, and other discrepancies. The quality of the effects sound, ease of tweak ability through guitar lab, and ability to stack 7 effects to one patch outweigh these "short comings" IMO. I am extremely happy with the Zoom B3N. I'll be recording with it this weekend and will update my review after that. I'm feeling confident it will sound solid in the recording mix given the way it performs in other functional areas. You can't go wrong with this purchase. ~Cheers
