Well, I have a question. What exactly do you expect out of an $80 multifx pedal?

B2 and B2.1U are far better made for slightly more. I'd rather not have rubber footswitches and controls. Plus, even without the Expression pedal the B2 does far more.

Expect the pedal to be very light, fragile, with cheap hardware, and expect the effects to sound like their supposed to, but nowhere near as good as, say, any other pedal on the market. Zoom are the bottom of the barrel. Digitechs are slightly better, but they have a very processed tone to them.

i have the b2xu or whatever it is. i dont use it and regret buying it. infact i use it for when i play guitar ha ha as i can get some good sounds but when i play it with my bass i dont like it. it is fun tio play around with though.

i have the b2 and do use it. mainly for noise reduction, compression etc. i find uses for th octave autowah and distortion occassionally too. plus it's always better having a tuner on stage with you. but as said the b1 is a horribley cheap and floppy piece of plastic. the b2 has metal buttons and rubber casing. boss pedals are also work looking at but a fair bit dearer.

figure out what sounds you want, go and sit down with one in the music shop and see if you can make it.

I have a digitech bp 50 and its well... decent. I mean I really don't use it any more because the effects were never that great, but you could create your own which could turn out good if you really knew what you were doing and not just browsing saying "Oh that sounds kinda cool". I wanna save up a little later and buy the boss synth pedal... I forgot the name already
