Sporting a no-nonsense control scheme with a single concentric Level/Drive knob, the Microtubes B1K is a pocket-sized pedal that delivers the Microtubes’ crushing all-analog distortion tone, without even a hint of compromise. Inside the pedal, the Tone and Blend controls are easily accessible; bassists find that the B1K’s magic lies in how it functions as an always-on pedal, forming the core of your bass tone. Small, simple, and straightforward: the Microtubes B1K Distortion is the perfect choice for bass players looking to inject some legendary Microtubes ferocity into their rig!
Darkglass is a company that’s seriously dedicated to design innovation, so it comes as no surprise that the Microtubes B1K’s control scheme is slightly out of the ordinary. A single concentric knob is the pedal’s only visible control, giving the B1K a utilitarian edge that’s ideal for musicians playing in live settings who don’t have the luxury of endless knob twiddling. What’s more, the B1K’s Tone and Blend controls are easily accessible through internal controls, and they’re specifically designed to excel as set-and-forget parameters.
