Here I go again, I missed playing my bass guitar but darn it I don’t have a bass amplifier here in my flat. I can only play with it in the studio.
I’ve been planning to buy a Zoom bass guitar effects and use my headphone and play without disturbing my neighbors. With so much gadgets out there I chose Zoom effects because they are not that expensive and they have exactly what I need.
I don’t know if I’m outdated already but while Googling I came across with Zoom B2.1 U with a USB interface and it can record your bass lines right away. That’s a good add-on! I can send my bass lines right away to my band mates, awesome!
On www.zzounds.com they are selling it for $179.00 (40% cut of the original price) and JB music offers it for P10,400, not that expensive for a bass effects huh?! hmm, I will wait until Christmas, I think I know where my 13th month pay will go. lol!
