The Darkglass Electronics MicroTubes B3K Bass Overdrive Pedal is an innovative and an unusual overdrive tool. A perfect combination of brutality and clarity, the Microtubes B3K delivers defined and powerful saturation in an intuitive format. There are no rules and no limits, so dig in and unleash your tone.
The level knob sets the volume of the overdriven signal while the drive controls the amount of saturation within the overdriven signal.
The 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.
The grunt switch sets the amount of low frequency content to saturate by selecting between three different bass boost levels before the clipping stage.
The 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, especially useful when playing with new strings and/or cabinets with tweeters!
