Zoom unveils the B2 FOUR Effects and Amp Emulator

23. February 2023| Zoom

Zoom is delighted to announce the B2 FOUR Effects and Amp Emulator. Designed specifically for bassists, the B2 FOUR combines unique features derived from our highly acclaimed B6 flagship processor with Zoom’s latest technological advancements. The B2 FOUR takes amp modeling to the next level as each of the 11 faithfully reproduced models of classic bass amps are now built with Zoom’s new innovative Multi-Layer IR technology, first used in our G2 FOUR. As with the Zoom B6, the input impedance of the B2 FOUR can be switched, allowing the use of electric basses and acoustic basses or double basses with pickups. The DI box emulation, also derived from the B6, lets you choose between six DI models that recreate the sound of world-class direct boxes. 

Zoom’s new cross key navigation switches help you control the pedal using just your feet and with the Guitar Lab App for iOS and Android it is easier than ever before to create your own signature sounds from over 100 different effects with up to 5 to be used simultaneously. The B2 FOUR also includes an on-board rhythm machine with 68 pattern and a 60 second built in looper for songwriting or to add layers to any performance.

And when connecting the B2 FOUR to your computer or smartphone via USB you can record with your favorite effects and amp models. 

Preloaded with 250 presets, each patch recreates the sound of an iconic song from the 50’s to today to provide bassists with more tone variations than ever before

The B2 FOUR will ship in Q3 2023.
