With a whopping 200 built-in effects, including 164 Zoom presets and 36 emulations of classic tones that cover overdrives, distortions, boosts, fuzz, and more, the MS-200D+ is set to get you shredding like no other.
The pedal also features a funky LCD display that changes colour, which is useful for distinguishing each drive and distortion type while scrolling.
Players can use up to two effects at the same time (i.e. Booster + Drive), and the four cross key switches make for easy operation by foot. Along with its sturdy metal frame, the MS-200D+ is designed to take a beating.
Adjusting and tweaking parameters for each drive and distortion can be done with the four encoder knobs. And the effects onboard run the gamut from Devil Muff Fuzz which boasts “demonic low frequencies” to Sky Overdrive that gives you an “open bright sound”.
Besides the range of effects, Zoom has included a built-in guitar tuner on the MS-200D+. The chromatic tuner uses coloured backlight to give visual feedback to help you tune quickly and accurately. Players will also have access to the Handy Guitar Lab iOS app and its growing library of patches and drives & distortions.
Handily, the unit comes with a variety of power options, including AA batteries (2X), USB-C or AC power.
