With the Darkglass Engineering Microtubes B3K v2 CMOS Bass Overdrive 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The attack switch has been replaced by the tone knob, giving much more control of the higher harmonic content (3 kHz to 8 kHz).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 Darkglass 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.
Comes with a FREE compatible power supply!
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.
Tone: Controls the high frequency content of the sound. A variable low pass filter from 3kHz (ccw) to 8kHz (cw)
Level: Sets the volume of the overdriven signal.
Drive: Sets the amount of saturation in the overdriven signal.
Grunt: When engaged provides a massive low end boost to really thicken your sound.
Mid Boost: Gives a subtle 6dB boost from 300 Hz to 1kHz to help you cut through a bit more.
Power: The Microtubes B3K v2 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. Warning: Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.
