    Hello everyone. I'm stuck deciding which pedal to buy. EBS Metaldrive or Markbass mini distortion? I need more modern sound with nice attack and edge and also tight bass. I would give for Darkglass Microtubes B3K but it's too expensive for me. Which one of those two is more similar to darkglass? Any other suggestions?

    A new MetalDrive costs the same as a used B3K, so....

    Aguilar Agro is also another pedal to consider, but none of them really sound like a B3K.

    the ebs metaldrive is a much better choice for your needs.

    Hi! I would really go for b3k, but I don't know where u seen such prices. :oops: for me it costs twice more than EBS Metaldrive. Metaldrive costs 109 Euro and b3k 200+ Euro.

    +1. It's a much better pedal period. Also the EBS Multidrive is another good option if you want something a little tamer than the Metaldrive.
    I tried the BK3 and I did not like this pedal at all.
