The world's first Bluetooth stompbox
Imagine a powerful, easy-to-use guitar stompbox loaded with 100 of the world’s most popular effects and amp models. Then imagine being able to instantly download even more effects and models directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
That's the Zoom MS-100BT: The world's first multi-effects pedal to incorporate Bluetooth® technology. In conjunction with Zoom’s free StompShare app (available for download in the Apple App Store), you can try, buy and download new effects any time you need them—in the middle of a session, before your next gig, or just for practice. With the MS-100BT, the perfect guitar sound is always just a swipe away.
You've never seen a guitar pedal do this!
Bluetooth is everywhere. It's in cars, it's in headphones and headsets, and it's in your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. And now, with the MS-100BT, it's in a guitar pedal too.
Bluetooth is the ultimate high-speed wireless solution for sending and receiving data. It allows you to use the MS-100BT with Zoom's StompShare app, a virtual effects shop available from the Apple App Store for free download. Bluetooth connectivity also enables you to quickly and easily update the firmware in your MS-100BT.
StompShare : The one-stop shop for effects and amp models
StompShare offers a wide range of both modern and classic effects and amp models. Once you're in the StompShare shop, you can browse around just as if you were in a real store. You can listen to demos, read detailed descriptions of each effect's or amp's history and editable parameters, even get suggestions for ways it can be used. It's like having the world's most knowledgeable salesman right at your fingertips!
Take your effects for a test drive
StompShare allows you to try effects and amp models before you buy them, allowing you to test them thoroughly with your own guitar setup, and in the familiar environment of your home or studio—something you can't do in a real store. During the 15-minute trial, you'll be able to adjust every parameter to your liking and use the effect in combination with other effects and amp models in your MS-100BT. When you're done, you can either install the effect permanently or move on to explore the other effects and models in the shop.
92 effects + 8 amp simulators = 100 great sounds
The MS-100BT allows you to choose from 100 different onboard DSP effects. For ease of use, these are organized into the following categories:
Dynamics / Filter – Shape and control your sound with these 20 compressors, noise gates, filters, equalizers and wah effects. Go for the classic tone of the MXR Dynacomp, Aphex PunchFactory, Moog MF101 or Z. Vex Seek-Wah, or craft original effects using the automatic Slow Attack, parametric equalizer or six-band graphic EQ. You'll also find talking modulators here, random and comb filtering effects, as well as Zoom's Noise Reduction (ZNR) algorithm, designed to remove noise during pauses while still maintaining your guitar's natural tone.
Overdrive / Distortion – The MS-100BT's 21 boosters, overdrives, fuzzes and lead guitar sounds include simulations of the BOSS OD-1, DS-1 and Metal Zone, as well as the Fuzz Face, Ibanez TS808, MXR Distortion+, Marshall Guv'nor, Matchless Hot Box, Electro-Harmonix Big Muff and Pro Co Rat. Our ExtremeDS effect offers the most powerful gain of any distortion effect in the world, and there's even a simulator that allows your electric guitar to sound like an acoustic.
Amp models – 8 of the most realistic amp models ever created, including simulations of the finest tube and solid-state amps from manufacturers like Fender, Marshall, Vox, Two Rock, Diezel and ENGL.
Modulation / Special effects – 29 different modulation and special effects are provided, including phasing, flanging, chorus, pitch shift, tremolo, vibrato, ring modulation, auto-rotary speaker simulation and autopanning—even an intelligent harmonizer that plays along in key. Also provided are emulations of the Boss CH-1 Super Chorus and CE-1 Chorus Ensemble, and ADA and MXR 117R flangers, as well as off-the-hook effects like MojoRolle, Slicer, BitCrush and Bomber.
Delay / Reverb – You'll find 22 mono and stereo delays and reverbs here, including natural-sounding rooms, halls, arenas, plates, springs, and tape delay simulators, all designed to add depth and spaciousness to your sound. The MS-100BT even offers reverse, pitch-shifted, filtered, multi-tap and self-oscillating delays—everything you need to give your sound realistic depth and dimension.
