    Welcome to the zoom b1 four patch ideas thread. much like the zoom b3 patch ideas and the digitech bp355 patch ideas threads, this thread will be about sharing patch ideas for the zoom b1 four. since I've looked up the effects list, I have been brain storming a few patch ideas for the zoom b1 four. I haven't own one yet so I'm not quite sure how the controls are different. but when I do buy one, I will edit some of these patches. okay as usual, I will post my personal patch ideas.

    Here's another patch idea I came up with. this patch is similar to vintage grind, only with a proco rat model for a more heavier sound. an excellent patch for playing metal.

    Dang, I just wanted to say thanks for these. Not only are they useable patches, but it is teaching me how to use this little Zoom box I got for father's day. This is why I love TB. Cheers!!

    Sure thing, dude. I have been brain storming a few patch ideas ever since I've looked up the effects list on the zoom website. I haven't own one yet(still waiting for it to be in stock), but once I get one, there will be more patch ideas to come. in the meantime, I'll come up with some more patch ideas by looking at the effects list and see if any new ideas pop up.
