MGR/tony's review"Zoom 503 Amp Simulator"

Zoom 503 Guitar & Bass Amp Simulator
bought from friend 75 euro
i dont have any other modeler till now so i wondering how it feels like

i had tried the VAmp and the line 6
and was not impressed at all.
vamp sounded awful in combo and didnt try in mixer line 6 - dont like the sound pluged in combo and very much like how sound in mixer.
as comes to ZOOM 503 - very very well in combos/i use two for stereo/
and not good in mixer
funy world
i use high end amps - but i dond have all possible sound
i am impressed with VOX simulation/very Beathles/
.Peavey/Van Halen - i twick by myself his sound- not preset/ and Fender are good too.Mesa passes
as overal - but u can come close to SAntana and Metallica as i would wish-just passable.
Marshall crunch almost good
Marshall gain for my pity only 60% of the real think/i have 2 marshalls now and had 5-6 in my life/
compared with 505 is better!

i dont like how it sound in mixer - hey Zoom make next time better speaker simulation!
as evry one will tell u - processor and simulators r away from the real thing - i like tube amps and preamps
even good solid state and hibrid combos.
but some time this zoom is inspiratinal for me - in case of VOX simulation - non of my five very good amps sounds close to VOX/i have 2 marshalla, fender,roland jazz chorus and aacraft/

well built .robust constrution
good work

it is fun thing to play - for insperation or maybe even record some /not all the parts in a song/

Zoom 503 Guitar & Bass Amp Simulator
Effects or types of effects available?
Reverbs, delay, octave, chorus, flanger ...
technology is used?
Super Analog hand factories lamps !!! But no no, pure digital !!!
Are they ditables?
Fortunately !!! The proposs presets are okay to have fun at home. There are basically a level of up to 9 for each effect, we doubt with more or mions accentuated effect. It is even better when leave these latter, the best results for me are using only diffrentes mulations of Pramp and speaker cabinets, and mic placement ... The rest, not so good .dropoff window
What is the connection?
Jack ...


Is Gnrale setup simple?
Super soon got used this little machine. 2 buttons standards (normally for the feet, but must be weird to plug has rpt 'or in concert. It's not the same when its powerful ...). 2 other buttons> 1 store 1 edit. It can not be simpler.


Are the effects effective and sufficiently ADAPTS GPs?
They are very cheap but there when same way to have fun and can be a good departure to wish for the best, try their hand and ear. So do not critiquaons too.
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The amp sounds ranging from the big blocks distos Fuzz, Metal Modern, Clean bluesy crunch, are against super I find compelling. I always shine with a home. Really. When it was not a stretch budget is say> PERFECT !!!
In group I accuracy of all I turn on Marshall JCM 2000 4X12. To give an idea.
Reboost behind by some of the small plugins AmpliTube kind is Las Vegas!
With low c'tait not gniale but mine (Yamaha BB200) is not much in the stomach. So I remain Vasif.


I had the opportunity to briefly use POD, the V AMp ... This is the least expensive of all time and it's downright class> 40 euros on average.
I fell on a super Cygnus' for a POD, so hello zoom. But I keep under wraps.
Without hsiter rachterai I was and I recommend it more.

Trmolo Dlay rverb chorus.
Everything is numrique.
Everything is ditable with 24 memory.
Mix between mini jack to mini disc cd player etc. ..
2 between impdance diffrent in Jack
1 Stereo output jack.
Electric power supply by 9 V battery or 9V 300 mA adapter not included.


Configuration with four small buttons for storage and shipping indentation + or less.
Two large footswitch to switch from one bank to another group or another, to stand by for the tuner by pressing the footswitch 2.
Programming simple enough.
The manual is in French educational trs and without reproach.


Trs bons.Emulations effects too. We need to test because of rglages presets are fairly coarse, as always on these machines.
Direct to disk it's all good in the clear as saturated.
Be careful not to overload in effect because the guitars lose some if not their personalities. The accumulation of a lot of bass amp dpend instrument fitting with a low-end bass sound is passable, with a good bass sound is excellent sr.


I have been using 2 / 3 years.
Compact and lightweight trs format, ideal for a holiday with only a battery and scratches + Stereo headset. With a CD player or other jammer can connect on vacation without taking the cabbage with a sound and / or electric + amp.
It is cushy.
In home studio c as correct. On scne you can connect directly to the console. cool.
I will exprience with a POD for this purpose but it is worth ten times the price of 503!
No comments.

Zoom 503 Guitar & Bass Amp Simulator
- What are the effects or types of effects available?
See previous ones opinion
- What technology is used? (Analog, numrique, lamp ...)
I think it's numrique pure (at least it's not lights)
- Are they ditables? Via an editor Mac / PC?
Do not look for the USB ...
- What is the connection? (Audio / MIDI)
Necessary for the righteous that it works.


- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?
basic functions are pretty simple, but if you want to go further without it galre the manual (which I hand there 2 years)
- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?
It's going.
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Nickel chrome!


- Effects are they effective, suitable and adequate ralistes?
I did not buy for the effects which, however are too cheap.
- Which instruments do you use?
1) Guitar
the clean sound is not bad but compress sounds "nice" (nothing to do with a fender all of the same)
Distorted sounds are too filthy to be exploitable (my taste)
2) Low
L is really not bad, thundering limited to a small box so little CHRE. A small box under his arm directly into the console and go for RPET.
- What are those you prfrez, you dtest?
Worst: saturated and saturated sounds for the guitar.
best: bass funk in clean or overdrive heated white bass (the sound NoMeansNo)


- How long have you use it?
Quite some time.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
small and efficient
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
At the time, I chose it for its price.
But it does work with the guitar and the bass made me decide.
- How do you report qualitprix?
Used AC is too it! (But mine, I keep it)
- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
No forcment, the Korg Pandora must have saturated guitar sounds much more usable, but the zoom is so cheap

8 / 10 because the bass sound is spot on! and -2 as for the scratches it has not!
