Overview

With the size and weight of a typical single stompbox, the MS-60B includes a thorough lineup of high-quality bass effects types. It features 52 stompbox effects and 6 amp models. Along with distortion, reverb, modulation and other classic effects, its amp models simulate some of the most prized pieces of live and studio bass gear. From a single pedal, you'll have 58 effects types waiting at your feet to be called-up no matter have often you need them.

The MS-60B allows you to utilize up to four effects simultaneously, as well as arrange them in any combination. This gives you the ability to craft classic sounds, as well as lush, complex tones. Leave the rules you learned behind and enjoy creative freedom with the MS-60B.

Tweak with ease
The MS-60B's front panel features three parameter knobs, which also function as buttons. These buttons can be used to open various menus, where you can then use the parameter knobs to tweak your effects settings to your liking. Remove and/or rearrange effect units, turn the AUTO-SAVE function ON and OFF, recall patches and more with ease and efficiency.

Realistic, high-quality audio design
The cutting-edge ZFX-IV DSP processor can execute sophisticated algorithms using 32-bit floating-point calculations. A sigmoid curve clipper helps create the smoothly clipped waveform characteristics of tubes, providing the most realistic modeling sounds and richest harmonic components to date.

Onboard auto-chromatic bass tuner
Hold the footswitch down to activate the built-in chromatic tuner in an instant. Even on stage during a performance, all you need to do is move your foot to enable tuning. You can choose between a BYPASS mode that turns all the effects off and a MUTE mode that allows you to tune silently.

Tap the tempo using the footswitch
Use the Tap Tempo feature to set the tempo in real-time to the rhythm of a song as you play the bass. You can also use it to for delay times and modulation effect frequencies.

Program the order of your patches
With the MS-60B, you can program which patches are recalled and the order in which they appear. For example, you could select three patches-(A) ROCK BASS, (B) FUNKY SLAP and (C) BASS SYNTH-so that you can cycle through them each time you press the footswitch. You can create and save up to 50 original tones in this way.

Presets that are available right-out-of-the box
Right out-of-the-box, the MS-60B allows you to create and store up to 50 of your original patches. To get you started, 30 of these patches are preprogrammed and form a versatile collection of bass sounds that include some of the most popular stompbox and amp effects, as well as patches personally designed by some of the world's top bassists.

Support for line recording
In addition to the 6 amp models from the B3, studio-level compressor and reverb effects are also built in to the MS-60B. The pedal's stereo output jacks allow you to use line connections for direct recording of its powerful bass guitar sounds.

7 hours operation on batteries
Using two AA alkaline batteries, you can operate the MS-60B for up to 7 hours continuously. From rehearsal to the main stage, you can use the MS-60B with confidence. Power the pedal via AC adapter (sold separately) or USB bus, if you want to use it longer without worrying about battery life.

Stay up-to-date via USB
When connected to your computer and Zoom's website via USB, you can perform system firmware updates to keep the functions of your MS-60B on the cutting-edge.

    Comments about Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal:

    This is a great mini version of the full blown Zoom B3. Same great sounds all tucked in a standard sized pedal. And it works off of 2 AA batteries. Seems to get 7 hours or so of battery life.

    - Cons, no bypass for the pedal. Once you're plugged in, it's on whether you are using any of the effects or not. Not able to just foot switch your way thru the effects or preset options. You have to use the arrow buttons to switch presets.

    Lots of fun once you learn how to use it!

    By Marcus

    from Richmond, VA

    Comments about Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal:

    This is my first multi-effect pedal and I'm more than happy with this purchase. It feels well made and I suspect that it would hold up well if used in a live setting. Up to now I have only used it during band practice and when playing on my own but everyone (including myself) have been impressed with the many options and the quality of sounds. Being able to model some of the more recognizable amps is really great for those of us like myself who are just starting out and maybe don't have the money to put into the higher end amps yet. I use this with my Fender P Bass and I'm able to generate tons of different sounds to match my mood or the particular genre of music I'm playing at the moment. The preset effects are cool but to really get the most out of this thing you have to do a little homework and find out how to create your own sounds using the available effects. The included instructions are okay but I found videos on youtube to be more helpful and easier to follow. You can stack and tweak effects to create that custom sound that fits your liking. At the price, it's hard to go wrong with this thing. Even if this doesn't make it into your live playing or recording the fun factor is worth the $100 you'll spend for it.

    Affordable, good sounds, hard to set-up

    By ROBERT

    from Nashville, TN

    Comments about Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal:

    If you're someone that isn't willing to spend a lot of time studying the manual then this is not for you. Because the whole deal here is that they've put a lot of sounds and features into a very tiny box, and the only way you can access those features is to study the layout. To make matters worse, it is absolutely the worst manual ever. Important information is left out and you'll spend time just punching random buttons looking for a result. Having said all of that, the sounds are good. I just needed basic reverb, delay and chorus and those sound very nice. It has a small quantity of a lot of different sounds besides those: modulations, amp sims, distortions, synth effects. Thus far in my use, running it stereo doesn't appear to produce any sort of stereo imaging - it just has a similar sound coming out of two outputs. But maybe there's a hidden switch somewhere that activates the stereo. Or maybe it only works on certain effects. Again, the manual offers nothing. Also know that the switching between sounds is very limited. You have to label them A,B,C etc. and it will follow that and loop around. If you use the same sequence of effects for every song that's perfect. But otherwise it's a pain. Say you just want to go Chorus, distortion, chorus on song one. It will toggle back and forth if Chorus is A and distortion is B. Perfect. But what if you have C, D, and E sounds that you need for the next song? Then your A and B won't loop - it will run right into C,D, and E. To summarize, this COULD be a really nice unit, but Zoom really needs to do some homework on it first. They clearly haven't run this by many beta testers. Maybe another version of it will come out later with these things worked out. In the meantime, I wouldn't recommend this product to a friend.

    More Than Just A Multieffect Pedal...

    By DANE WHITE

    from North Carolina

    Comments about Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal:

    This little stompbox is a tool. A very high quality tool at that. The practical effects alone are enough to make this $100 device worthy of owning. Very good quality compressors, preamps, an excellent noise gate, and even amp simulators that all do an excellent job of creating the tone you've always wanted (or just want for that specific day). I've used it at band practice an everyone in the band commended the huge difference in my tone. On top of all of this, I now have a ton of great effects to experiment with for different songs. This pedal has expanded my creativity immensely. All of this with the real estate of a single effects pedal? I got rid of my other pedals for this one, and I have no regrets. I'd get another if this ever got stolen. Also, I'm already planning to complement this pedal with this guy's big brother: the Zoom B3 (which also serves as a nice direct recording interface). The pedal feels very sturdy, and it's menus are fairly simple to browse through after just a few minutes of getting the hang of things. This pedal is built for those that like to tinker, and I'll tell you now that the pedal rewards tinkering. The presets are alright starting points, but no where near an accurate demonstration of what this pedal is capable of. You really need to get a feel for how all of the parameters on the pedals work, then cater them to your taste. I promise, if you take the time, you'll get way more than your money's worth out of this pedal.

    Stomp with a Kick

    By Ray Hunt

    from Rittman, Ohio

    Comments about Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal:

    This Stomp Pedal is a great deal for a 100.00. I can say that I am extremely happy with my purchase. Besides having a tuner it has amp modeling and effects that you can create custom sounds that suit you. I love that you can also use your A/B switch to set up a number of different effects in the order you want.This a pedal that you will be very happy with for sure.

    Be prepared to downsize your pedalboard

    By David Kruse

    from Cincinnati

    Comments about Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal:

    All I can say is that for $100.00 this is probably one of the best investments in tone shaping that you can buy for bass. This is a multi-effects pedal for people who hate multi-effects. What I mean is that it is essential several (up to 4) digital stomp box style effects at once that can be combined in any order. There are some limitations to this pedal such as turning multiple effects on and off during a gig with just your foot. Once you set up a signal chain of up to 4 effects you can only turn one effect on/off with your foot, otherwise you have to bend down and scroll over to another effect and then use the footswitch. For what this pedal offers this thing is a steal. I sold a MXR M80 as well as a BBE sonic stomp after buying this pedal because they were no longer needed, it's that good. This is not a replacement for an entire pedal board, BUT you will this will probably replace some of the pedals you might already have.

    Great little box!

    By Carlton Meredith

    from Walnut Creek Ca

    Comments about Zoom MS-60B Multi-Stomp Bass Pedal:

    I am having a lot of fun with this little thing! I am normally not an effects guy, and just wanted to try something new. I was most interested in the amp modeling, and DI's, but have found myself really enjoying all the effects, and sounds this thing makes! Time flies by in blissful sonic exploration! For under $100 this thing is a blast! If you only find 2 sounds (Doubtful! I have found many, and have only just begun!) you like then it is worth every cent!
