Zoom B2.1u Bass Effects Pedal:
The fundamental frequencies of an electric bass are about 40 to 600 Hz, but harmonics go all the way up to the ultrasonic frequency range. Many conventional pedal effects make the low end sound thin and lifeless. This usually is not only because of insufficient response in that range, but also because the harmonics are not handled properly. The B2 series from ZOOM makes such problems history. 24-bit resolution and a sampling frequency of 96 kHz ensure signal processing power on a par with the best rack-mount devices. The dynamic, wide-range bass signal retains its full impact, and the result is clear, powerful sound that remains a distinct presence also when playing in a band ensemble.
ZOOM original 32-bit DSP ZFX-3:
The heart of any multi-effect device is its processor and decoder section. ZOOM elevates performance to the next level with its newly developed ZFX-3 chip. 32-bit architecture means outstanding accuracy and smooth and detailed signal processing. Fine nuances of fingering and touch come through without any deterioration.
Great bass amp sounds for any situation:
Sophisticated bass amp modeling allows you to adjust parameters such as speaker cabinet characteristics and low-range response in three levels. Get the dynamic, high-impact bass sound of a large cabinet even with flat-response systems. This is handy when using headphones or studio monitors, or when playing through a small combo amp or other bass amp with low output power. Alternatively, turn the cabinet effect off and use only the characteristics of the amp head. Create your very own bass amp sound and get it whenever and wherever you want, even when using a series of different bass amplifiers on stage.
Six-band linear EQ or two-band parametric EQ offer total flexibility:
Center frequency allocation and filter slopes of the built-in six-band EQ are optimized for bass guitar. Peaking type filters in the middle range (150Hz, 450Hz, 1kHz, 3kHz) are augmented by shelving type filters at the low and high end (70Hz and 6kHz). This ensures the shortest possible route from creative idea to actual sound. Further flexibility is offered by the possibility to switch to a two-band parametric EQ, for delivering a pin-point boost or cut. The B2 series lets you really take control.

REVIEWS & USER COMMENTS:
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 3/23/2006:
"With 24 bit 96KHz sampling, the AD and DA conversion is as accurate as current studio recording gear. This pedal is very quiet. ...I have mostly used SWR bass amplification gear, and I think the SWR model is extremely accurate...the "tone" knob even functions as the aural enhancer when using the SWR model and to me it sounds very authentic. The Ampeg model is also very accurate...the Ampeg overdrive sounds very authentic..."
HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW 3/7/2006:
"If this device were lost or stolen I would probably replace it. My favorite features are the DI, the fact that I can use it in place of my amp and that I can hook up headphones and sit on my porch and get creative."
