Do Not Fret


Faded Zoom B3 Screen


Back in February I mentioned that I had retired my well-used Bass Pod XT and replaced it with a Zoom B3. I’ve settled into using the new box and have been loving it but was disappointed this weekend to find that the lefthand screen was doing something funny. I was getting results like the above, varying from patch to patch but consistent on any given display. Very odd but also making some functions almost unusable (for example, the screen is almost completely blank when the looper goes into recording mode).

Fortunately the suppliers have provided me with a return number and the promise of a replacement. I haven’t found any other mentions of this kind of fading screen behaviour online so I hope it is a very rare glitch and that I won’t encounter it again.
