It was never the sexiest-looking pedalboard addition, but Zoom’s debut MultiStomp multi-effects pedal launched a quiet revolution when it landed way back in 2012. The MS-50G gave guitarists a way to call upon an entire arsenal of effects in one compact unit – ideal for that one song in the set that calls for a flanger or uni-vibe.

A number of spinoffs followed, but it was the MS-70CDR Chorus Delay Reverb that really captured guitarists’ imaginations. With emulations of Strymon’s Ice Delay, Eventide’s Black Hole and a wealth of reverse and spacious reverbs, it quickly became a favorite among ambient and shoegaze players.
