Independent variable-Z inputs let you switch seamlessy between active and passive basses. Route sound to headphones, amplifiers, headphones, and line-level sources.

Stunning Features

Zoom's new analog circuit in the DI section improves the low frequencies of your instrument.

Super Fat Top End

With an 88.2 kHz effects processor, the B6 remains pristinely free of unwanted aliasing distortion.

4 DI Models

Zoom modeled four iconic preamps for this unit. Two tube emulations are on hand: one with rich harmonics, the other with a clear attack and a tight low end. Two solid-state modes are also on hand: one offering sharp tones, subtle compression, and low-end preservation for piezo pickups, the other offering an absolutely clean timbre with little distortion.

Supports Instrument Switching

Separate inputs allow you to A/B switch from electric bass to synth or acoustic bass, and back again. Both inputs let you change the impedance from 1 to 10 megohms, giving you a cleaner tone for upright basses equipped with piezo pickups.

Detailed Amp Models

The B6 features 11 classic zoom amp models in history, as well as two brand new amp algorithms.

Bass Cab Emulations

The B6 provides simulations of 12 classic bass cabinets, each with three variations based on mic positioning.

User-Friendly Touchscreen

The 4.3" color touchscreen lets you drag, drop, and rearrange effects to build the perfect signal chain in seconds.

4 Play Modes

This mode provides a visual representation of your pedal chain. By clicking the assigned foot switch, you can turn on or off an effect in your patch.

Bank/Patch

This mode lets you scroll up and down through your Banks and Patches by clicking the corresponding foot switch.

Memory

Ideal for organizing your patches for performances, the Memory Mode allows the footswitches to activate one of the 4 patches in each bank.

Looper

Use the Looper to add layers to your sound.

Brand New Amp Emulations

This model offers clean bass and bright high frequencies.

Monotone

A solid-state combo amp perfect for jazz, this emulation features a round low midrange with a calm overall tone.

Preamp and FX Emulation

Clear Drive

This original ZOOM Clear DRV preamp uses a linear phase filter in the distortion path. As a result, phase interference is eliminated during dry mixing, providing a clear drive.

Super Low Preamp

A ZOOM original preamp for super-low sound. Using missing-fundamental acoustic science, SpLoPre is equipped with a bass enhancer, which emphasizes the low end of every note. With a Lo EQ and a minus-one-octave sound, a super-low-end tone is produced.

Djent Preamp

An original ZOOM preamp recommended for Djent sounds. This preamp combines an undistorted low-end with a strongly distorted high-end to provide a crisp, intense distortion even with a down-tuned 5-string bass.

1073 Preamp

A thick, warm sound of a vintage mic preamp with transformer distortion.

Solid Preamp

Modeled after a console's solid-state mic preamp, the SolidPre delivers tight sounding harmonics with the ultralow frequencies cut out.

Bass Analog Octave

ZOOM's original octaver using an algorithm based on the operating principle of analog octavers.

Bass Standard Synth

ZOOM's original bass synthesizer sound with adjustable filtering details.

Bass Synth Talk

This effect produces a synthesizer sound similar to a talking modulator.
