    That link only leads to Premiere guitar gallery, no Zoom pedal. I suspect that what you're asking about is the Zoom B3 bass multi effect pedal. There are several threads here about it.

    I thought this would be a thread about a Zoom B5 ... will there be one, btw ?
  4. The bass pedal looks like a newer, better Magic stomp. The chorus, delay, reverb pedal also has me interested.

    The gallery shows the new small Zoom pedals. Here is the description:

    The new MultiStomp pedals come in four versions, one for guitar, one for bass, a CDR (chorus, delay, reverb) model, and a Bluetooth model. The guitar and bass versions have amp, cab, and effect models and can run up to six simultaneously. The CDR has many versions of those three effects, but many deeper parameters to tweak than the guitar and bass versions. The Bluetooth version allows you to control and add parameters via a mobile app. The pedals will retail for $99 (except the Bluetooth, which is $149) and are expected to be available between late summer and fall.
  7. Looks kinda interesting, that may have to feed my GAS for a while.

    I think the difference is this...

    The bluetooth version would be used to control an iphone app as far as I understand...

    These pedals look cool, especially for the money. I have the B3, now. Currently waiting for the update that allows six effects, like the new version of the G3. That, and possibly a B5, should it ever materialize.

    I don't think they will be releasing the b5 any sooner, if they did, they would show it at namm, but they show the multistomp instead

    i want one before i know what it does :) i have a ampeg micro vr stack that i love but i am missing the ultra lo switch. so i was wondering to try all the sansamp and mxr pedals aswell as some clones to get the ultralow things added. what i heard is that the amp sims of zoom are quite well - so if i can have a pedal which at least tries to simulate the deep-switches of some amps and pedal i am sold.
  13. That was my first thought as well.

    Definitely going to give these a look as soon as they get here.
  14. Bumping older thread, but I hate making new ones.

    The Zoom Multi Stomp for guitar has already been released, still waiting on the bass and other models. Figures... bass players are always the last to the party. Looks pretty nice though, the controls look very similar to the B3.

    i thought about just getting the ms-50g, but i am holding out hoping that the ms-50b will have alot of the bass specific models that the b3 does... have you noticed any tone suck with the one you have?

    No tone suck .... at the moment I'm only using mine for reverb/delay & para/eq.

    Still playing around with it a lot though.

    Its mostly works fine with bass as you can see in the tube vid.

    I would bet money that the bass version will be Identical ( function wise) other than the Preamps & maybe a compressor or 2

    I guess the biggest thing I'm hoping for in the bass one is the filters and bass micro synth... Maybe I should just go ahead and get the guitar version and then move it to my guitar rig when the bass version comes out... :bag:
