Bass drive that I was searching for a long time. After tried a lot of different pedals, came up to this and this is HUGE. Texture of the distortion circuit is perfectly fit to my sound. You can dial almost everything from slight distorted sound to complete nasty buzzing sound. Rock, metal - it covers everything. Frequencies of the EQ matched in a way to make bass cut through both in a mix and live situations. You can sharpen your tone by adding Mids and Highs or make it softer by cutting down Highs and adding a bit more Lows. Mine is capable to run with 9 and 12V that brings a bit more gain and headroom. If it still is not enough of gain, two toggle switches that saturates low and high frequencies comes to hand. Moreover, drive option is not so to say mandatory for this pedal. By dialing Drive at minimum position this pedal becomes a good preamp pedal for passive bass. In this case EQ works as delicate and fine and adds smooth frequencies that enhances tone of instrument. This pedal serves great both for live and record situations. it has XLR output so it is easy to connect pedal to mixing board. This option to me is good for live shows that brings opportunity to run into PA preshaped tone that you like. Parallel output option gives an option to add tuner pedal not including it in main circuit. This comes handy for home recording so there is no need to use any additional plugin tuners or replug cables to tune your instrument. With XLR output it also can be served as DI box.

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).

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.
-No Battery Slot
