Winter NAMM 2017 (ultra Pic-heavy)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by wintremute, Jan 19, 2017.


  1. So, to the person---whom I can't find among 34 pages---about the new Zoom B3N, and how you'll stick with the original. What did they change? How is it different / worse than the original?

    Wow! What a great thread! Much love to @wintremute for all the leg work! It is, indeed, much appreciated.

    I'm still not happy. Thanks to all your efforts, I'm now going to HAFTA make room for a Hammersmith K and, most likely, some Kiesel Vaders...they just keep drawing me in! Dammit man, that money is supposed to be going towards a new ZL1...

    Well played, sir!

    No xlr, and the screens are smaller (harder to read at my feet).

    Those Vaders are pretty cool.

    I'll tell you, I'm not a fan of the look of headless basses and guitars, but a friend of mine got a Kiesel Allan Holdsworth guitar with the headless neck, and it really is a thing of beauty to play and it's super light. Don't think I could bring myself to buy a Vader, but respect for Carvin/Kiesel.

    It isn't me, but I'll answer this one:
    - No more XLR out for DI
    - Looks like only one page of parameters per effect now (4 knobs), BUT there are 7 effects slots per patch now, so that part is good.
    - My own humble opinion but I hate that the effect on/off stomps are way back so you have to step over the front edge pedals (patch up/dn, etc) to get to them
     
  14. Thanks for your input, jammadave. I found the thread in the effects section, but I'm only on page 6 of 19 at present!

    I'm lost on this. Did you quote the picture you meant to quote?

    Nevermind! I see her now.

    I cracked up when I saw your pic because my Friend (fellow bass player) and his wife are in the background. I had to text him a message that he and his wife were in the background of your Pic. What a small world it is. And it was not a photobomb LOL!!!! Passinwind.JPG
