You don't need a tube amp
Profond, 17.11.2020
After a lot of consideration I got this pedal to dial in some warmth into my sound. And it really does the trick. You can go for a more aggressive sound (if that's your thing) and shape it to your heart's content. I combine my amp's EQ settings with the EQ from the B7K, then you can blend how much 'dirt' you want (basically mix the clean and distorted signal).
You can shape it to be subtle but the warmth and that classic gritty tube sound is noticeable and really lovely - you don't need a tube amp. It's also silent and feels smooth. I'm sceptical when it comes to distortion and was extra wary due to Darkglass' 'metal' reputation but the quality sound you can get from the B7K is genial. Not cheap but I think you really get what you pay for.

Trying not to be too enthusiastic here...
jDV B∆SS, 20.01.2021
...but d@@@@mn how this B7K is good.
I've been using it for over a year now and it really does the job.

The preamp is really top notch and really helps finding the wanted tune if, like me, you've always been struggling going for a compressor.
I'm no specialist of EQs so I'll let others detail their experience with this 4 bands one : overall, this v2 of the B7K brought some low and high-mids filters that are quite impressive but, yet again, not the best to talk here.

Now - let's talk overdrive, 'cause that's where this Darkglass stuff is masterpiece. Let me get this straight, I have no use of big fat distortions in the genre I'm playing so I was looking for a sweet growl-y and polyvalent sound to add to my clear tune and it all comes to one word : BLEND
This function is magic and allows to find EXACTLY what you want by blending you clear sound to the overdrive. Magic.

I could recommend this Microtubes only for its high manoeuvrability and for the quality of the sound all over its range.

Excelent bass pedal
PJMCOMPOSER, 03.06.2020
If you are looking into a insane bass distortion, well look no further, this product does deliver all the value per money invested since it is a monster tone.

I bought this for my live and studio recording performances and the constructions is solid and sturdy, it survived already several travels with heavy conditions and some falls. About the sound like said previously it is a monster tone, it just delivers the most heavy tones to moderate ones in a quality that is overwhelming good.

Strongly recommend it to everyone that is looking for the next heavy tone and bass distortion, nothing can go wrong with this piece of equipment.

Add a compressor and you good too go!
Phillie, 28.12.2019
Only pedal i really need and use, aside from the standard chromatic tuner and compressor. Has alot of features and gives that nice extra. I use this with a p-bass, probably cuts even harder trough with a j-bass coils or humbuckers. Alot of bassist compliment this one, saying/thinking the same as me.

Only thing i disliked, the metal seems cheaper than other pedals i own. it feels different, less quality or not that thick, maybe some parts are plastic? not sure. The finish makes it feel like it can't take a real hit while other pedals really do. yet, this is a great piece of art. worth every penny
