anyone using it. I do and i think it sucks. There is nothing useful on it.
If you think it sucks, then why post about it?
i have that zoom pedal.. its not the best pedal in the world.. in fact all I use it for is to tune and Use one effect for one of my bands songs.. its a little " bass solo " thing... its D4 on the pedal.. its that distorted.. SWOOSSHH type thing..
if your intrested in what the hell im talking about you can listen to the song , its called PRIDE - CLICK HERE !!
Do you feel better now?
Good question! What sucks about it?
It's one thing to have an opinion, particularly a negative one. But, it's another to join a forum such as this and share your experiences so others may have a chance to learn from them.
I agree, it does sound a bit "tacky", but some of the FX are ok.
And have you ever tries hooking it up to a mic?
Try setting it to E5 and setting the mod. that it is on to wahterver letter it is and number 8 -to get a helium type voice, or sett it lower for a EVIL low end sound.
There are many others that sound kool to. It's realy load'z of fun!
yup, the Zoom pedals are lots of fun, a window of opportunity with hunners and hunners of ideas!!!
It's nice to be back online!!!!
For £70 in the UK I cannot think of a better value multi-effects pedal. I have one and although it will never have the same cool tone of say my sansamp or cool mu-tron sounds it is still good - the delays, flanges and choruses (plus all the other weird stuff) are good enough to go into the studio. It's also great for PC recording as you can take a lead from the headphones out straight into the line-in of your PC with zero hassle.
If you don't like something that's cool, but do us a favour and tell us why
I've got one, and I think it's kind of fun. Not the best multi-effect maybe, but it's cheap and easy to use. I don't use effects allt that much so it's enough for me
I like it-
I got a lend of my brother's one and played my fretless through it with the fretless effect on.
After a bit of tweaking and noodling it gave me a very nice Bakithi-esque slap-fretless sound.
....which was nice.
i love my zoom, If u spend enough time tweaking it, you can get amazing sounds. read the manual a few times, and try mixing different effects and tweaking them. I got an awsome vintage jazz tone out of mine, then band enhaced it, and found my rock/jazz type of tone. i use it for every practice and every gig. the only prob that im tryin to fix now is the input jack, its a bit loose.
Hate it. Sounds and effects are OK it's just REALLY noisy. The hum/hiss is absolutely unacceptable live, and forget it for recording. I use mine as a tuner only and as I just ordered a rack mount tuner will probably be giving it to my 17 year old nephew to play with.
the zoom sure is not a very superb FX-device and those presets are really really bad BUT
try using only one effect at a time and try to compensate for low end loss with the built in EQ.
later try to combine 2 or 3 effects you like.
this way you can achieve at least a couple of useful results.
and if you find some effects you really like but which are too noisy or 'weak' go out and buy some decent stomp boxes...
hey i got a Zoom506MKII. its a great pedal for just messin around by yourself, a few useful effects, and a very useful built-in tuner. i have mine set on A3 the whole time i play, it gives me a great full sound. thats about all i use it for when playin gigs, A3. i love to distortions on it too
