Fantastic !!

NAF, 12.06.2014
Put simply this is an amazing piece of equipment for the price.

If you are interested and maybe sitting on the fench about which pedal to buy then just go for it because its a no brainer.

The unit has over 100 bass effects which include distortion, compression, modulation, delay, reverb and various classic amp models. More than anyone could ever hope to use.

I bought the regular unit Zoom B1on but the X unit adds an expression pedal as well . I didnt feel that in my case it was needed however and was more than happy to buy the cheaper unit.

Up to 5 effects can be used simultaneously, they can be added together any way you wish . With all of this choice you have a huge range of different sounds and tones available to you.

But the best part for me is that the unit also has a built in drum machine with almost 70 different drum patterns to choose from. This was the main reason I bought the Zoom B1on .

I use it to practice along to and I was very impressed by the sound quality and output from the drum machine itself.

One word of warning .. check the output level of the drum machine before you first start it! Mine as set so loud that played through my 15 inch / 300 W Amp it nearly blew my head off at first !

As well as being able to connect through your amplifier there is also the possibility to play through headphones so the Zoom B1on makes a great headphone amp also .


And if that was not enough it also has a chromatic tuner which supports all standard bass guitar tunings and a 60 second looper that records what you play in CD quality


Actual use of the unit is straight forward enough and it is relatively easy enough to program . However if this is too much trouble for you there is always the huge number of preset sounds to choose from .

The construction of the unit is very strong , even if it is made from plastic it does not feel cheap nor does it feel like it will break easily . It is a sturdy unit.

Comes packaged with 4 AA batteries and you should note that the AC adapter is a separate purchase and does not come supplied with the unit.

However I replaced the supplied batteries with 4 NI-MH high quality well known brand rechargeables which I can recharge overnight when the units built in battery meter indicates that they are failing.

For less than 50 euro from the ever excellent Thomann I am sure that anybody who purchases this unit will be extremely satisfied with their decision

Hours of fun to be had with it

Exactly what I needed

Dusko, 06.10.2015
I just recently started playing bass guitar and was in need of some FX pedals. Looking at all the individual pedals and their price I was put off instantly. I dont even know which pedals will I like so why buying lots of them just to figure out I will use 2 of them ;)

So for me a multi FX pedal was the solution. After looking at some reviews on you tube about this Zoom B1on I was in no doubt this is the one for me so I bought it from my supplier (Thomann that is).

I had it for just a couple of day and so far could only check the presets. They are awesome and give various bass sounds. The only preset section I dislike is the Synth but that could be due to my personal taste.

The over all quality is robust even though it is made of plastic.

I'm yet to test the Looper and making my own presets and will update this review accordingly.

So far Im very pleased with this pedal.

EDIT; after a few days of playing it I seem to be disenchanted It doesn't sound as good as my guitar pedal Digitech RP70. I know one is meant for bass other for guitar but the stereo sound is so much better on my Digitech.

On top of this there is some hissing noise to it and no noise gate as a solution. The only effect that takes this hissing noise away is the De-Fret which gives a very fine fret-less bass sound but in this case the pedal is only good for this purpose. The Distortion effects are not the best. The Reverb and Chorus is very good. Delay is way better on Digitech RP70. Im actually thinking to return this pedal and buy the Digitech BP90 designed for bass. By the way the tuner seems much better on the Zoom B1on.
