The B3 Bass Effects and Amp Simulator by Zoom features nearly 100 stompbox effects for bass guitar including compressors, filters, drive effects, preamps, modulators and much, much more. It also offers twelve amp models ranging from vintage to today's latest in amp technology. Some of the amps modeled include the Ampeg SVT, Fender Bassman, Marshall Super Bass, SWR SM-900 and the Aguilar DB750 just to name a few. To further enhance the realism, the B3 includes a sigmoid curve clipper which re-creates the smooth clipping of tube amps delivering warm, fat and aggressive sounds.
