Zoom B6 Bass Multi-Effects Processor

Zoom’s B6 multi-effects processor for bass is now shipping. The latest addition to their floor units offers 11 bass amp and four DI models based on classic designs in addition to 10 preamps and effects models and a looper.

The B6 has a 4.3-inch color LCD touch-screen interface but offers wireless control by way of an optional Bluetooth adapter. They’ve also included accessibility functionality for the visually impaired through the Handy Guitar Lab for the B6 app.

Nine stomp switches let you quickly toggle effects, and you can chain up to six effects at once. Two variable-impedance inputs allow for optimizing for both electric and acoustic bass. Other connectivity includes a built-in USB interface, an effects loop, and external expression pedal input, and an SD/SDXC card slot.
