Zoom MS 100bt

Before we go any further, this pedal is only great if you own an iOS device to update effects through a Mac, iPad, or iPhone!!!

You should own this pedal.  If you don't, you should buy it right now.  Here is the link to read up on the pedal and its amazingness....http://www.zoom.co.jp/products/ms-100bt

After reading up on it, buy it here...http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/MS100BT?adpos=1o1&creative=55282474801&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=CO_j6J7lo8MCFQwEaQodtUAAkQ

You're welcome.

Why do I love this pedal so much???  Well, let's say not for the amp sims, which I don't dig.  I love it for everything else.  The Bass Booster works great for a clean to dirty amp tone with a dynamic mic like a SM57 or 58.  The RC Booster works just like a LoneWolf HarpBreak if you take time to dial it in - plus it has a slew of amazing sounding effects!!!!!

Staples of my rig include many of the delays and reverbs.  If you use effects at all, you'll be familiar with most of the effects, but my favorite are Shimmer, Ice, Space, and Bass Octave.  Running with the John Popper theme, you can nail or get ridiculously close to all of his time based and pitch based effects.

If you don't care at all about amp sims, the Zoom CDR70 is a great alternative if you are just after the delays and reverbs.  It does not have amp sims, distortion pedals, or other effects like auto-wah.  If you are just after time based effects, it is cheaper and maybe easier to use.
