I bought a Zoom B2 because I wanted to have something I could play my bass through when I am in my hotel room since I work away from home. Normally I've got peddles in chain which I will sell now. Pros: Love the tuner I though I was going to keep my Arion Tuner, no more Sounds are Great even the Synth sounds, Not hard really since I only have the SYB7 to compare to which is a Distortion peddle with wah made to mimic a real synth peddle! Compact and does exactly want with regards being a portable headphones amp for bass Cons The patching system I don't Like. Normally one would play the standard clean sound and turn the effect on for the part of the number and then back again, or play an affected sound through. The solution seems to be to set up the user patches as Clean/Standard - Selected Effect - Clean/Standard - Selected Effect ect so that in a set one just does one click up or down per number. Where you have to put the Zoom. Normally I would put my effects (Chorus Flanger Delay ect) in the effects loop, in between the Pre and Power Amps, before or after the Graphic. But Because the Auto Wah is in there and it gets its trigger from the bass I have to put at the front end. Same argument for the synth all though it oddly enough the Octaver needs that too, which my Arion Octave, didn't it would happily go in the go in the loop and give a nicer sound. Has any one got anything to add. It sounds as the Cons out weigh the Pros but the sounds are so nice I'm happy with it!
