    SVTs....blah....but SVT based pedals turn out a'ight a lot of the times.....or at least with the Swell B-Peg it did. That thing freaking rocks.

    Anyways, I'm hoping it's like a B3K sound but darker, fatter, and warmer. I keep trying the B3K because it keeps calling to me (love the sound) but it's just a bit too light and thin (tone not OD) for me. If this is ANYTHING like a dark, fat B3K.....I'm all over this.

    MSU, I'm quite opposite of you and like the Squire-ish bite of the B3K, but I use my Tech21 Ox to thicken it up and it's a great effect.

    But now that Darkglass is coming out with this, I know I will want to try it with the B3K. I bet it might sound like ...a bag of WIN!?

    Doug, have you meant for these pedals to have a relationship of any sort, even if only on the weekends??

    :)

    Pssssssssssssssssh. If you left my amp alone with your amp, your amp would be pregnant with five Class D amps, biznatch. That's how much bawlz my guy's got.

    Word!

    I crank my M9 with the B3K set to Fat. Makes my balls turn to jelly and my girlfriend curl up on my speaker cab like a snake on a hot rock!

    Super interested in this one. All I need is some light overdrive. Maybe the Era knob is a gimmick, but we'll see. Spencer is obviously involved since it says "Handmade in the USA".
