    UTILIZATION

    Instructions simple and effective
    Editing and storing sounds easy

    SOUND QUALITY

    Amp simulations are interresting and well adapted to the bass.
    It lacks a bit of grain to the sound but the result is proposed
    very good anyway!

    Breath and noise almost non-existent, impressive!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Faults:
    Can not enter a name patch because the display is limited and 2 digits
    with 40 memory is a shame.
    The reverb disappears when one uses the drum machine.
    Drum a little succinct (bass drum, snare and hi-hat)
    Emulation limited to one speaker only.
    No auxiliary input for a player for example.

    Qualities:
    No bulky and lightweight (it counts in a travel bag or case of bass!)
    Ability to disable any part of a patch, that's well thought out!
    (Eg use only a simulation or a Disto Flanger, etc ...)
    Choice of amps and distos nice and well tailored.
    Original patches fairly successful, it is rare!
    Many effects available, there is almost everything!
    No wind or background noise, pretty amazing ...
    MIX function very interresting for the determination of the sounds section
    Drive with the original sound of the bass, really well thought out!

    Its price: 57 euros with the AC adapter!
    in France it is optional in contrast to Germany
    when I ordered it!

    The B1 is very thorough and not sound bad at all, it's not worth probably not a Bass Pod
    but this is not the same price either!
    It offers many nice and usable sound for the price nothing to say!

    For the curious: yes! it can be used with a guitar ...
    it sounds very good as well and can also help a bassist / guitarist!
    I also have the G1 (guitar) and the B1 is almost more convincing ...

    I change, I mix, and gives me good tips.
    Otherwise, I use simulations normment gear, such as simulation of SansAmp, head Hartke, SVT amps ect is really great, a good guy sound!

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it? Since 2 years
    - What is the particular feature you like best and least? The functionalist is complex and super easy to use. for the price, find as many options, a standard jtrouves!
    for effects, the basic ones are super synthetic, but changing them would lead to gniaux stuff.
    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir? No, my first multi purpose.
    - How do you report qualitprix? Listen to Ben, a multi-effect of this quality it was like a glove Reduces pedalboard in a small box!
    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ... Yes, definitely. to start, it's perfect!
    on the other hand, if we look more sound, we can add a compressur or EQ.

    UTILIZATION

    - The general configuration is it simple?
    The configuration is facilitated by the display 2x7 segments. It's a little rough though. A little reminder card in credit card format supplied with to not be completely lost.

    - The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    The manual is comprehensive and clear.

    SOUND QUALITY

    - Effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?
    - Which instruments do you use?
    For the price it's downright good. The preset "on marcus" is really nice.
    I use an Ibanez between SDGR 400. A few plugins in the DAW still easily replace a qualitative point of view.

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    I use it for 1 year 1 / 2.

    - What is so special that you like most and least?
    My main complaint is that the output level is too low. can do because the output jack is used for both the headset and the line-out? a switch of 6 db for example would have been welcome.

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    I also have a POD 2 Guitar I use also with the bass. This is not the same quality, but not the same price range either.
    - How would you rate the quality / price?
    - With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    The price / quality ratio is excellent for me.

    All the usual effects of bassist are available on this multi-effects pedals. Distos, wah, modulation diverse modlisations amp, compressor, etc. known bass sounds.

    Trs complete some tips useful but not trs nice to play alone on the bote rhythms included.

    Connectors play: jack in, jack out, jack pedals, power.

    Perfect for those seeking the simplicity.

    UTILIZATION

    The config is simple, although the display does not allow any "fantasy". Once the user manual included (it is according to the Availability of your brain), the edition is very simple. Access in rglages and settings is quickly despite the small size of the machine and srigraphie the boti.

    The manual is comprehensive, concise.

    IMPC!

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are trs correct all parameter. Only the noise gate is a little enchantment if you pick a SERIES effects many.

    I use an amp modlisation, a flanger, distortion and the autowah + fretless sound. It is rare for a bass player needs to have 50 effects. As a result, the multi will do. For a scratch is DIFFERENT: skip the sound must be tedious.

    For us, bassists, is Bonnard!

    And lots of fun sounds to make improv madness (imitation guitar flte, octave)

    And a renter can live without a PA amp. But the sound is not great. It can possibly dpanner, what ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I will not go the eternal "is the best pedals spares." The pedals spares is boring, cumbersome and wasteful. For the 4 effects I use, I NWPD 4 pedals + 1 + 1 tuner noise gate. Pedals 25 6 = 150 + + PSU + strip = ptits jacks Behringer and more! (Including noise gate is zero)! In Boss, you can triple this valuation the ladle.

    Musicos for amateur short bars and corn scnes of the fte of music, it's all good. This multi uses the same processor as the most expensive zoom, the Casing is plastic, that's all. Even when strong.

    A 62 Thomann, power supply included, as requested by the people who want to work less to play more??

    There is a plethora of effects, some nice, some downright useless.

    You can edit all effects (there are 40). This model does not have USB.

    The effects are digital, so it is not comparable to what gives a SansAmp.

    Level there is a connection jack, a headphone or amplifier, and an input for the pedals I think.

    AC power or batteries (nothing is supplied)

    UTILIZATION

    It's plug and play, you plug and play.

    There is a manual for each language.

    I have not yet tested the effects edit

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are nice to get an idea of what a low price can give a true dedicated effects pedal.

    I use headphones to play in my apartment, making it the perfect tool.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I asked the vendor what it is like to play headset solutions, he offered me the Vox amPlug Bass or the Zoom B1 B1 because I took the Vox does not have all the effects and is just cheaper ...

    What is practical is the integrated tuner and ease of handling.

    Unbeatable value for money I think, but I would not use it with an amp, the sound is still ugly.

    As to finding a solution to play at home without bothering the neighbors, and without having to buy a small amp, I would do this choice.
