Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal

Designed to provide creative bass players with a wide palette of rich bass tones, the MS-60B MultiStomp Bass Pedal from Zoom is a multi-effect processor with 58 different effects which are housed in a lightweight, standard-size, single pedal, thereby allowing you to efficiently cut down the size of your pedalboard. Effects include amp/preamp/DI modeling, compression, equalization, modulation, delay, reverb, and more. With its intuitive navigation and clear LCD display, the unit allows you to easily program, save, and rearrange your effects in both studio and low-light stage environments.

The MS-60B lets you use up to four effects simultaneously that can be arranged in any order you choose, and individually switched on/off. To get you going right away, it comes with 30 pre-loaded multi-effects which you can edit and store in 50 user-patch memories. For live gigs, you can create a list of up to 26 patches, to cycle through as you step on the pedal's footswitch.

Other features include an onboard chromatic tuner which supports both standard and drop-bass tunings, and a Tap Tempo function for synchronizing delay times or modulation rates to your song's tempo. The Zoom MS-60B is fitted with a 1/4" input jack for active and passive instruments, and two 1/4" output jacks for stereo recording or going to two amplifiers. The pedal is powered via two AA batteries, USB bus, or the Zoom AD-16 AC adapter (available separately).
