Multieffect pedal to play with headphones ?

    I used to post a bunch on here and gig a bit but I had two kids plus a new job and there was no time to play bass so after my last gig on Christmas Eve 2015, I stashed the bass underneath my bed and didn't touch it again... until a few days ago.

    I sold my big ass live rig (rip Ashdown 215 and 800RB) and I have a small practice amp, but it doesn't have an headphone jack. I want to ditch that pos and just plug straight into some kind of pedal or preamp with a few effects (compression, distorsion, metronome, tuning, etc.). It needs to have a decent headphone jack since all my playing will be with headphones. Cheap is best.

    Compatiblity with an amp is a non-issue. My days of playing live or with anyone are pretty much gone.

    Pretty much every multi-effects box I've ever seen has a headphone out. So, any of them will work.

    Go to fleaBay, search for "Bass Multi Effects Pedal".
    That'll keep ya busy for a while.
    Like Iz4005 said, nearly all have a headphone out.
    It really comes down to what you want to spend.

    Find a Zoom B3 - there should be a few on the used market. Lots of effects and headphone out.

    Any specific recommendations in the sub 150-200$ range ? The Zoom B3 seems nice, but it's a bit more expensive than I'm looking to pay.

    Edit: like the Zoom B1on, is it any good ? I'm looking mainly for low noise, clarity and not too much tone loss more than amazing effects.

  6. The Zoom B1on will be perfect for headphone practice, has a tuner, drum loops to practice with and even an aux in to jam along.
