    Hey guys I'm after some opinions here. I'm looking for a really wicked fat overdrive to compliment my sansamp setup, the three pedals I'm looking at are as follows:

    Aguilar O/D
    B3K
    B7K

    Which one and why? I already have a sansamp RBI and BDDI so I don't think I need a B7K but if you think differently let me know why!

    Cheers from Canada

    I've owned the Aguilar agro and used it a lot. Great with bass, keeps the lowend. I however own the darkglass b7k now. Its seriously an amazing piece of gear. it sounds different than the agro, different flavor but both are great IMO. I haven't tried the b3k but its the same overdrive sound as the b7k, except doesn't have the eq or di. Others might have more info to help.

    For a metal tone (really gritty over driven one) on a 6 string bass tuned A would you recommend the B7K over the Agro?

    You dont even have to use the eq if it takes away from your sansamp tone. In that case the b3k would be more than sufficient.

    yeah I have 2 sansamps so the B3K would probably do the job. Thanks so much!

    Cheers.
