Easy desision

skudra, 12.08.2017
I was looking for a tube-like bass overdrive pedal for long time and had been struggling between several other overdrive and fuzz pedals until I bought this one. I can truly say, that when I found it, it was the easiest decision I've ever made.. about buying a pedal that is.

All the features are very easy to understand but can be pretty versatile sound-wise. When using the "blend" knob which adjusts the ratio between clean and overdriven signals, it doesn't loose any low-end and maintains the middle range frequency that gives it it's natural warm-tube like sound. With "era" knob it is possible to change your sound from more warm and mid-focused tone to more define and cleaner sound as it gets slightly more agressive and actually start to sound like one other Microtubes pedal - B3K. The versatility of tone really gives you that kid excitment and gets you playing with it.

The only minor thing that got me conserned was the placement of power supply jack but when using it on a pedalboard it doesn't matter so much.

I definitely recommend this pedal to anyone who can afford the price. It really is worth every cent.

Never Leaving My Pedalboard

Gavin H., 11.12.2014
Had been struggling to choose between this and the Darkglass B3K, in the end I waited till I saved up enough for both - best decision I have made in a long time. Both pedals have their own distinct character, however Id say this is perhaps a little more versatile. I was expecting a fairly low gain overdrive pedal however it can get pretty filthy (in a good way) with the gain cranked. However seeing as im using it as an 'always-on light overdrive' effect I rarely need the gain much more than half way.

The sound of this pedal is great, and as mentioned previously its really versatile. Capable of covering a lot of sounds and styles. I play in a prog metal band with guitarists who use 8 strings so needed something which will cut through the mix nicely. The ERA knob is definitely the key in defining your sound, with the dial fully anti-clockwise it gives an old school vintage tube sound, and with the dial fully clockwise it gives a slightly more modern take on the sound. Iv been having a lot of fun dialing in a geddy lee type bass tone and this thing nails it pretty well.

As with the B3K this pedal is built to last and again my only minor gripe is with the placement of the power supply jack. Would I recommend this pedal? YES
