Darkglass B7K provides truly unique distortion character. None of pedals that now are on the market can reproduce such cutting through distortion sound. However this pedal also can serve as clean boost or preamp by turning Drive knob all the way down. Another useful feature is Blend knob that helps blend original voice of bass and sound of B7K.

I found that the EQ section of this pedal is very useful, especially in live situations. Selected frequencies help player not to lose the body and base of mix (Bass), cut through guitars (Lo/Hi-Mids) meanwhile not losing presence because of drummer?s cymbals (High) even without using Drive at all.
There are two additional switches helps finally shape the tone of this drive by selecting different amount of high and low frequencies for saturating. Grunt switch gives option of three different bass boost types, but Attack switch allows you either boost, flat or cut high frequencies (something like ?Ultra Hi? in most bass amps) to make sound a bit sharper and give more clarity or cut it to make sound more warmer. Both of these switches are operating with Drive knob, so switches are also very useful.

I tried to A/B this B7K with the original one, that was made earlier in Finland and came to conclusion that, There is no difference between using 9V or 12V power supplies, unlike with original one. Drive amount is also different for these two releases - the original one has a bit more drive, for example 3 o?clock on old one is equal with drive set all the way up on new one (checked with 12V supply).

Direct output gives opportunity to run directly into PA system or console during recording, however sound is a bit different than from regular output and has less distortion.

Overall Nearly Perfect!

Great "meaty" tone, as you expect it to be.
Pros:
-The problem of most bass distortion/overdrive is that after saturating the signal, you loose low frequencies. By mixing (blending) the distorted sound with the direct sound, you recover those low-ends. And this is exactly what this pedal does ! And much more.
-The attack switch (hardtoaccess), is in fact a high-pass filter gain, that over&under&flat boost the high frequencies before saturation. The Grunt switch is more or less the same for the bass frequencies.
This is a massive plus, as you can saturate only highs or the entire signal, and recover the bottom from the clean signal. You always keep those low-ends, saturated or not!
-Great EQ! Treble @ 5khz and not @ 15khz thankgod!
-DI +1 point!
Cons:
- Why having the "Drive Level" and a Blend?
Since you have a blend, the Level could have been a Master Level,... Or a Drive Level and Clean Level instead?
This makes it hard and confusing to adjust the global volume.
Eg you have the right sound but it's too loud compare to the clean, you need to balance more blend and take down the drive level.
