In addition to its 100 preloaded stompbox effects and amp models, the MS-100BT allows you to use Zoom’s free iOS StompShare app

New York, NY (November 30, 2012) – Zoom has introduced a new multi-fx pedal that combines Bluetooth technology with an iOS store. Here are the details from the company:

The most advanced model to date in Zoom’s impressive line of pedals, the MS-100BT MultiStomp Guitar Pedal with Bluetooth combines the power and flexibility of a multi-effects pedal and amp modeler with Bluetooth technology in a single stompbox design for only $149.99.

In addition to its 100 preloaded stompbox effects and amp models, the MS-100BT allows you to use Zoom’s free iOS StompShare app (available for download in Apple’s App Store) to browse, sample, purchase and download additional effects for the pedal instantaneously from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch (compatible with iOS 4.3 or later). Once you buy an effect via StompShare, it can be transferred directly to your MS-100BT in seconds via Bluetooth and used like any of the pedal’s preloaded effects.

The MS-100BT’s single stompbox design features a large LCD, single footswitch and analog-style cursor keys/parameter knobs. Together, they allow you to easily control the pedal’s 92 stompbox and 8 amp models, including some of the world’s most popular guitar pedals, amp models and processors. With the MS-100BT, you can utilize up to six effects simultaneously, as well as create and store up to 50 of your original patches.

For added versatility and convenience, the MS-100BT also houses an auto-chromatic tuner with smooth, real-time response with precise guitar tuning and accuracy. The pedal’s display also makes the Tuner easy to see on a dark stage. In addition, the MS-100BT operates via AC adapter (sold separately), as well as battery power. Two standard AA batteries (included) provide seven hours of continuous mono input use and 5 hours of continuous operation when using the stereo inputs.

Bringing Bluetooth technology to the new stompbox-style multi-effects pedals from Zoom: the MS-100BT MultiStomp Guitar Pedal with Bluetooth. $149.99.

Gibson 1960 Les Paul 0 8145 is from the final year of the model’s original-production era, and likely from one of the later runs.

The story of 1960 Gibson Les Paul 0 8145—a ’burst with a nameplate and, now, a reputation.

These days it’s difficult to imagine any vintage Gibson Les Paul being a tough sell, but there was a time when 1960 ’bursts were considered less desirable than the ’58s and ’59s of legend—even though Clapton played a ’60 cherry sunburst in his Bluesbreakers days. Such was the case in the mid 1990s, when the family of a local musician who was the original owner of one of these guitars walked into Rumble Seat Music’s original Ithaca, New York, store with this column’s featured instrument.
