I've had a made in Finland B3K for close to 10 years and never had any problems. It's not obsolete by any means. I could get a wider range of tones from a B7K yes. I don't need it. I completely agree the DG tone is not for everyone of course. Doesn't change the fact that many people like Darkglass products and had great experiences with their customer support. Doug used to post here quite a bit and would always try to make things right for whoever had a problem. Now obviously the company has grown and with growth will always come some issues. We haven't seen a hoard of posts about people being left in the wind by Darkglass. Of course some people will have bad experiences. That's true of EVERY pedal maker. This is basically trolling for views..
