Recommended Posts

Hi ,

Has anyone used the Zoom B1four as a preamp yet , feeding into a power amp or effect return ?

Itried it at rehearsal , seems ok , but not tried it at a gig yet .

Yes, I've used it at a gig into an RCF powered speaker, and it all worked fine without problems.

@jrixn1 - that's a good Q from Pete, likely to be of wider interest. If you fancy also posting your suggestion on here, that would be ace!

I can put my settings if it's of interest.  For context, I'm playing five-string P bass with flats, "wedding repertoire" leaning towards Motown, with a 10-piece band.

I'm actually not using a Zoom right now as I'm currently trying out the EBS MicroBass 3.

Anyway, the Zoom settings:
1: OptComp
4, 54, 65

2: B-Man
3, 3, 0; 400, 40, 71; OFF, BM 4x12, 64

3: Bass BB
14, 0, -4; 16, 70

4: Ac Bc Pre
50, 8 [60Hz], 100; 0, 0, 800; 0, 0, 0

Hi Al Krow ,

Tried your CLEAN setting ( without the ZNR ) suits my bedroom set up , as you say , gets rid of  the mush at the low end .

Will try it out at a small Festival Sat afternoon , with full rig , and if ok , will use Sat night and Sunday night .

I play a much modified Hagstrom Viking Bass 2012 ( Schaller 232 pups , re wired for normal 3 way switch  , tone & vol for each ) through MB Ninja and 2 MB 2x10 cabs on end , for a Stones Tribute Band .

Have tried going straight into the front end of the amp , and through the effects return , sound very simular ( both good )

Will let you know how I get on . Working on a Phaser for the intro to Anyone Seen My Baby .

I have now put my Zoom B3n up for sale , because the ZoomB1four fits inside my guitar case . Less to carry .

Pete
