Yamaha Magicstomp EB
198 patches (99 prdfinis, 99 modified).

Each patch is part of a family because of the following: prampli, compressor, compressor + equalizer, distortion (fuzz, distortion, drive), filter (autowah, flanger, phaser), modulation (chorus, rotary ), pitch shift (harmonica), delay, reverb, equalizer and multi-effects. Each family is associated with a list of paramtres changed. There is no sound synthetic.

Some patches are simple effects, others may combine several effects.
All these effects are in fact filters numriques: you can edit and compltement reparamtrer the 99 modified with a PC and the USB port on the pedals.
Yamaha offers Tlcharger from the website Magicstomp new effects. At the moment there is no SPECIFICATIONS bass, but for the guitar (it works too).

Hyper connectivity simple: between 1, 2 output jack (Mono / Stereo), 1 headphone, 1 x USB (used only for paramtrage effects, no registration numrique).

The bote is compact, Boti and switches are mtal, the whole is strong.
Comes with tranfo power. The heater bote not bad, but it did not seem to GNER. Only regret: no on / off switch for the power supply.


Very easy to use at boot time: 3 buttons (on / off, + and -) are used to navigate the 198 patches. A single patch can be activated once, for some patches against combine several effects.

3 knobs allow you to change 3 paramtres of each patch. These parameters are DIFFERENT according to the patch. Gnral but each patch has more than 3 paramtres (up to 30 for some, and for multi-effects!) Can be on the pedals, switch to complte edition, but it is better to have the manual at hand and not be too hasty. The best thing is to actually edit the effect on his PC ... Fortunately, the knobs allow, by default, custom settings to change the most significant. The rglages may or may not be mmoriss.

The PDAL has two modes: mode "forward / back", where one browses DIFFERENT patches with + and - buttons, a "performance", where they can affect each button (+, - and on / off), a patch. The latter is very useful (a bit long to choose an effect from just 198 with +/-).

The manual does not explain the exact rle for the settings in a patch (otherwise it would be a directory). We need to even its own self-expression, which can be trs long (personally, I gave up.

Finally, beware of those who wish to rglages trs sharp in a hurry (in concert, for example), this is not multi adapted trs. As against those who are less presss, which use an effect from time to time, this has bote normment opportunities and taking the time, one can find the sound that one seeks, the mmoriser and out at the right time. In the latter case, use is even trs simple.


The sound quality for me trs well, I'm looking plutt LGERS effects to color his plutt as to transform it.
My bass is a Cort viva active, so an instrument means.
I like the flanger and chorus, and there are many choices among the distortions and compressors. The delay is good (for the Pink Floyd for example), and with autowah can make cool stuff.
The multi effects are trying, but do not seem too useful, unless its search for a space.


I use the Bass MagisStomp UB99B for 2 months. I was looking for a reasonably priced multi-effects, for discovering all the possible effects before you may be adopting a few. But as I was looking for something durable, good quality that I could keep a few years.
I have hsit with Zoom B1.2u, but I opt for the Yamaha history of thinking outside the box (I found trs few reviews for this bote).

I found this multi for not too expensive (125 via Thomann), but the prices seemed trs variables (including sites franais levs, up 200).

The report is for me qualitprix trs good. APRS 2 months, I gave every opportunity to express rglages, I MMore few patches with a little DIFFERENT rglages rglages of standard I was going well as a!
I would do without this choice hsiter.

A priori all guitar and bass effects are arranged.

Edition on the unit or via PC (via USB connection Midi)

Oddly, no one has the choice of ranges of effects enable / disable, but "pre-patch" more or less complex tampering (no distortion + wah for example, or simulation of amp + ring modulator, or whatnot) ... Yet there is plenty to do even sounds Zarb, even if it is a bit Drout beginners to deal with other multi-effects. Nanmoins remains that aficionados (excellent yahoo mailing list, which I recommend), often used in Magicstomp SERIES 2, one for effects, one for simus.

Casing, connectors and switches strong enough.

Lack an audio interface.


Manuel not too bad, when the multi-effect adj tt, APRS 2-3 Bouzin learn specific maneuvers, we dbrouille alone. Configuration not so complex that has too long but direct to the machine for multiple effects, and even with the PC for that matter, since the software interface is also fairly ergonomic.

Stop followed by Yamaha: no possibility to see the bte evolve now, which is too bad, I hid it sr trsors not yet exploited by the firmware.

Communication protocol PC / machine not top-top (something strange while midi-USB), even if it is functional. There is a buzz coming from elsewhere in the ds that his branch of the PC while it is silent otherwise.

Otherwise, there's the latency of the stop (put something like 2 / 10 sec.) When changing patch is pnible to live. Can not be used before pramp. In the effects loop, I manage in the redirecting between pramp external amplifier, has maintained at least its bare for change is almost inaudible as a .

We can not do certain complex combinations, yet makes you want to.

No expression pedals and no possibility to assign an external.

Anyway, lots of little dtails a little boring, but not rhdibitoires pnibles put end end. The worst thing that could have a sense that evolve in part with the firmware ...

Otherwise, lots of positives too: IDAL format, three assignable knobs anything and everything is fine, switch on / off, or switches can be used either to change the patch up / down or assigned mode, the possibility of having a Stereo output, or output mode o is just with the sound effects, the other with simultaneous effects +, ...


Well, bein honntement it full of default, the bte ... But then: There's the sound. And honntement, I test the multi-effects (the old boss to the last zoom, through the BassPod, the Korg, Dod ...) well I can tell you that it's something that sounds the best by far. Point.

It's boring, all we want, but sounded HAIRY. Pramp the (true), the simus, compression, although the effects sr is excellent, has outperformed all others. Only small BMOL the pitch shifter, not bad on guitars but not bass adapted.

Good bypass.

The worst (well the better) in a while, your magictomp work as well with an electric scraper, with an acoustic bass, mandolin, violin, synth ... a voice!

In short, a way to use live because of the time limit with mute when changing patch, but really good trs (PSE and I my words) for recording.


Used for a month and a half.

I like (s) sound (s)!
I do not like stuff ...

The report price is good quality, but there is more than an opportunity (in the 110-120?)

I would do this choice, but in the IDAL, I: format / knobs / pedals and his cart-ct of the last Zoom ergonomics and software interface of the BassPodXT + Magicstomp sound.
