Darkglass B3K V2
With the Microtubes B3K v2 you get all the features of the original, with the ability to restore the mids for natural character. The attack switch has been replaced by the tone knob, giving much more control of the higher harmonic content (3 kHz to 8 kHz). The grunt switch is still present, as you would expect. The addition comes in the form of a mid boost, giving you a subtle 6dB boost from 300 Hz to 1 kHz to help you cut through a bit more.
Fundamentally the Microtubes B3K is the same pedal we designed nearly a decade ago, aimed to give you a perfect combination of brutality and clarity. You can guarantee that this pedal will deliver defined and powerful saturation in an intuitive format.
Level: Sets the volume of the overdriven signal.
Drive: Sets the amount of saturation in the overdriven signal.
Blend: Mixes the clean input signal with the overdriven signal. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine control of the blend ratio.
Grunt Switch: Sets the amount of low frequency content to saturate by selecting between three different bass boost levels before the clipping stage.
Attack Switch: Sets the amount of treble content to saturate: The “Boost” setting emphasizes the treble content extra clarity and presence. The “Flat” position leaves this register untouched while the “Cut” position will reduce the amount of high frequencies being saturated. This new addition helps to keep the treble portion of the signal under control, specially useful when playing with new strings and/or cabinets with tweeters!
WARNING: The Microtubes B3K has a current draw of 20mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug. Due to ecological reasons it does not accept batteries. Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.
“This is the first time I’ve used an overdrive pedal (The B3K) in my live rig. It’s been working great for me, makes me wish I’d done it sooner. Truly bone crushing overdrive pedals. Seriously, this is the heaviest sound I’ve ever had. Beyond stoked”
Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse, Conquering Dystopia & Blotted Science)
“The B3K just makes the basic tone of my bass so great and adds a really perfect, small amount of very treble-heavy overdrive”
Charles Cave (White Lies)
“I’m blown away by the thick and fat sound this little beast produces. It has that grit and growl I’ve been looking for.It really makes my Warwick basses sound as good as possible and paired with my Micro bass 2 from EBS I feel really confident on stage”
Niklas Sandin (Katatonia)
