With the Microtubes B3K v2 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 The attack switch has been replaced by the tone knob, giving much more control of the higher harmonic content (3 kHz to 8 kHz).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 v2 is the same pedal Darkglass designed nearly a decade ago, aimed to give you a perfect combination of brutality and clarity. You can be guaranteed that this pedal will deliver defined and powerful saturation in an intuitive format.
OPEN BOX ITEM: There is one unit which was opened for the purpose of taking product photos. This pedal has not been used. Full Manufacturer Warranty still applies.
