    Hi All,

    I still can't get over how amazing this little pedal is. It's the only pedal I have, and is my preamp, then it goes into a Radial DI...that's it...no amp or cab most of the time (I use in-ear monitors). It sounds ridiculous, and for $100. Huh??? I dialed in tones last night for my new bass, and it ROARS. I just wish that I didn't have to crouch down to change the settings every time...suppose I need to learn how to change tones with the ABC setting engaged by tapping the pedal button. Regardless, this thing is possibly? a hidden gem, in the sense that it coaxes all of the growl that I used to get from my GK 1001RB-II head, and A LOT more.

    Who's lovin' this thing?

    I've never owned the 60B but I just got the 100BT because I wanted some guitar flexibility. I'm pretty happy in my initial tests. Does anybody else have the 100BT?

    Not sure I understand ?
    The 1st link is the megathread, the other 2 are patch idea threads, necropain's being the most used, I believe.

    I'm subscribed to that mega thread. But I got an alert about this thread in my notifications in the upper right because I get notifications for most new threads in the effects forum, but without paying attention I assumed it was the mega thread that I'm subscribed to, not a new thread.

    Got it.
    I had the 100BT last year... impressive enough, but a bit overkill for what I need. Switched it to my guitar set-up for a while then flipped it for something else. One thing for sure, Zoom nailed it big with this line. I'm looking for a 2nd 60B, to be used as preamp for one of my basses. Don't wanna touch the LS-2/60B combo, that works so well for me effect-wise. Now, if Zoom could only update the 60B's software and add 1 or 50 goodies on it :).

    Thanks for weighing in. My biggest complaint was that the acoustic simulator had a crackle to it, I wonder if I should place a comp in front of it or something. But I liked the defretting effect, Ice delay, and more.

  9. I do agree it is a sweet pedal, mucho goodness in such a small package. These days the MS60b and a passive DI are all I need for the C&W gig.

  10. Yep, I have both as a matter of fact.
    The MS100-BT is probably the better of the two IMO. Does pretty much everything the MS60-B does and lot more.
    eg. 6 effects per patch, shop for bass or guitar effects and upload them, etc. etc.

  11. If only the MS100bt worked w Android it would be almost perfect. Have even considered buying an old iphone or ipad for that reason.

    I was thinking about trying the MS60B with a DI and going FOH.. I'm a little bit scared about noise..

    How does it work?
