    Zoom ZB1ON reviews

    B1on Multi-Effects Bass Pedal is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Box for the Price! For me, mostly a learning tool, to learn about different effects. Not sure if I'll ever take it out to a gig. But amazing what you get for this little money. The user interface controls are a little clunky. Also, there isn't a way to have no effects--you have to create an effect that has no effects inside of it. Overall, very happy I bought it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B1ON should be in EVERY Bass Player's gig-bag IMHO Received this 4 days ago so I've had time to work with it now. For the last reviewer, if you hit both pedals at once, it switches to Tuner mode, but also passes through the signal with no effect. So it's actually pretty easy to disable. This is undoubtedly the best $xx I've ever spent on any effects pedal. I use the ZNR effect first in every patch created and for that alone it's worth it. (Noise reduction - complete silence if you're not actively playing anything) UI is actually pretty intuitive for all that it does. If you understand the difference between an Effect and a Patch, you won't have a problem. (Patch is a specific combination of Effects) I didn't read the manual and haven't had to for all the things I wanted to do with it so far! The preloaded patches are, for the most part, too complex to use in any but the most specific of instances. But you can easily overwrite them and use only the single effects. ZNR and some of the compression are ALWAYS useful IMHO. Throw in equalization and I can't imagine how anyone can complain about this at all! It's not perfect, so here's my complaints with the caveat that if you have a Bass, why would you NOT try this for $xx? 1. No power cable. I'm running on the batteries that came with it for now. But it can be powered by a USB Mini B cable as well as a 9v standard power cable. Note that's a Mini B USB connector, NOT a Micro B. (My cell phone uses Micro B and probably yours does too. Know that they're not the same as a Mini B which is slightly bigger.) 2. Plastic. But it seems to be sturdy plastic and for $xx you can't really expect solid metal construction. I also was afraid it would slide all over the place, but it's got a heavy metal base and seems pretty stable anyway. 3. USB connector is for power and firmware updates only. Can't save patches externally. A guy on talkbass forums is working on a program that might allow this, but for now you'd have to write down your settings. But it saves the patches to non-volatile memory so losing power/batteries won't lose anything. Highly unlikely you'd need it. Also, I needed no firmware updates - mine came with latest available v1.21. (adds 25 more effects over v1.0) 3. Have to overwrite factory patches to create your own. 100 Patch locations available and those are preloaded with factory patches. I found a .pdf file here: nimpquoi.free.fr/Zoom-B1on/ZOOM-B1on-Presets.pdf that documents all 100 preset patches though, so they can be recreated if needed, and you can always do a factory reset if you need to. None of which are deal-killers at all. If I had the $ I'd probably go for a Zoom B3, but again for this, you can't go wrong IMHO. And I DO expect to take it to every practice and gig from here on in. Why on earth NOT?
