MGR/bassdale's review"Zoom 504 Acoustic Guitar Effects Pedal"

Zoom 504 Acoustic
I got this 5o4 pedal at the local music store, i was looking for a pre amp to a pizo pickup accoustic that lacked luster.

The unit was compact easy to carry in a diddy bag and had no bulk to slow me down. mine fit in the back of my amp nicely. the display was easy to read, and the onboard tuner enabled me to leave my tunner in the studio and not worry about another peice of gear. the mute while tuneing made for a professional pleasure at practices and proformances as well as tuning checks on the fly.

the volume pedal is an option and should have been a design considersation. the plugs to the cables could have been designed so that they don;t stick forwards but, rather to the sides like the other pedals.

construction is high impact plastic I have never had one break in 3 years.

this unit would improve the tonality of any thing accoustic electric you pluged in used even for vocals in some cases.

Zoom 504 Acoustic
- The zoom 504 contains a lot of acoustic guitar DDIS numriques effects: chorus, rverb, anti-feedback (one notch automatically learns alone frquence of the feedback), a compressor- limiter and a whole bunch of stuff to sound "acoustic" an electric scraper (!).
- Two inputs (high and low impdance), an output Stereo headphone / line
- The two buttons are used pdalier select the preset (F. .. A1), supporting simultaneous on both serves to validate the choice. Preset at the factory have t input.
- Further support simultaneously both buttons of pdalier puts the "bypass" (the effect becomes transparent), the following changes to "mute" and the tuner Intgr active.

UTILIZATION

- It's hyper-simple to use, the edition of the presets is very easy, especially since the factory presets are not bad dj. The manual is a large sheet (A3?) Duplex.
- The tuner mute who is very practical trs, trs prcis it is without being chi .. t (if you know what I mean) and works in silence (Mut.
- The 504 acoustic is super strong, he took a lot of bowls and especially tons of dusts and kicks (yes, it's a pdalier, huh ...).
- The output level has allowed me to tough to do without Casing direction to the mixer.

SOUND QUALITY

- I use only two presets: one's a tad rverbr limit and with a bit of bass and treble in addition to rhythm and sound choruss for intros in arpges mazurkas.
- The guitar is an Ovation active, the music is the "trad" rgional. It sounds trs folk and all of the same pchu more than one and a guitar feels in supporting rhythm is more Submitted, Fuller is a bit of our signature sound . I do not spend more than this.
- The presets from the bottom (E F) are for an electric acoustifier, I never tried I do not know what a deal.

OVERALL OPINION

- It's been three years at least I have this thing, I love his great simplicity and robustness.
- The report qualitprix is ​​good but paradoxically, this is forgotten when he knows giving the potato remaining natural.
- Casing I recommend this to boost the music where the rhythm guitar is the only (and often the only bass).

cheyenne-toulouse's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Zoom 504 Acoustic
Small effects processor, which does not look at first, but under its rather austere appearance quickly proves indispensable!
The 504 offers much sound arrangements, both for owners of electro acoustic for those who play electric and acoustic wish to simulate (2 banks are also reserved for the latter).
The 504 has 6 banks of 4 effects, all opened and edited to fit.
The A / D conversion is 16 bit, which is more than enough to ensure excellent audio quality.
However, sampling is done at 35 kHz ... we would have hoped the 48 kHz, but it's really a detail!
The connection is simple but sufficient: two low-impedance inputs (electro acoustic) and high impedance (electric), an output amplifier (or headphones, but in this case, provide an ID or anything like qque)

UTILIZATION

The 504 has 4 buttons to edit and modify the effects, and two pedals to switch from one effect to another. Simple but sufficient.
The handling is very simple (15 minutes by my watch!) And even allows a quick editing in the scene condition.
The manual is clear and simple, but failing to get the 504, you must satisfy the English manual, which is the site of ZOOM.

SOUND QUALITY

Amazed ... is really the word. This little toy, despite its apparent simplicity, actually reveals excellent sound quality. It can also serve the person seeking the effects very synthetic as that just want to improve the sound of his instrument (which is my case).
I only use little effect, I customized:
- A rhythmic sound like folk, very realistic, with a bit of reverb
- A sound with a resonant crystal, for solos and arpeggios to sound
- A muffled, a bit saturated for some intros
Note that the 504 also has a very good 12-string simulator.

OVERALL OPINION

A tool that quickly becomes essential! initially we do not think we will use it on a few pieces to keep most of the time the original sound of his instrument, and quickly, we see that it does not actually used at all of the bypass function, both realism and sound quality are waiting for you!
