    Microtubes B7K v2

    With the Microtubes B7K v2 you get all the features of the original, with the ability to better sculpture your tone: on the low mids you have the option to change the center frequency from 1KHz to 500Hz, and on the high mids you have the option to change the center frequency from 3kHz to 1.5kHz. This will enable you to tailor your absolute dream distortion tone.

    The character and core of the Microtubes B7K remains the same, still retaining the powerful dynamic saturation circuit of the B3K and adds a four-band equalizer and a balanced line driver for even greater versatility. Designed for both studio and live use, it will take your direct sound to a whole new level.

    Technical upgrades
    • Low mid frequency switch: the "Lo Mid" control has now a dedicated switch to shift its corner frequency one octave so in addition to the standard 1kHz now users get 12dB of cut/boost at 500Hz.
    • High mid frequency switch: the "Hi Mid" control has now a dedicated switch to shift its corner frequency one octave so in addition to the standard 3kHz now users get 12dB of cut/boost at 1.5kHz.
    Microtubes B3K v2

    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 The attack switch has been replaced by the tone knob, giving much more control of the higher harmonic content (3 kHz to 8 kHz).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 is the same pedal we designed nearly a decade ago, aimed to give you a perfect combination of brutality and clarity. You can guarantee that this pedal will deliver defined and powerful saturation in an intuitive format.

    Technical upgrades
    • Tone knob: this control uses a variable low pass filter to exactly control the high harmonic content.
    • The Attack switch is removed: as the aforementioned knob serves the same function but with a much greater range and control over the attack and treble.
    • Mid Boost switch: we also included a control to add an alternative to the characteristic mid frequency response of the B3K, if desired pushing this button will result in a slightly flatter and more transparent character.
    • Grunt switch: replacing the three-way toggle. The new modes are Raw and Fat.
