Product Description

Get fuzzy

From crackly to crunch, from smooth to full on fuzz, the B1K can voice it all. Set your level of grit through the “Level” and “Drive” controls on the front of the pedal. “Level” sets the volume of the overdriven signal, while the “Drive” setting will determine how saturated your tone will be. And believe us, that can be seriously saturated, enough to please those looking for the darkest, gnarliest soundscapes!

Blend and tone

Underneath the B1K are a few extra options to sculpt your sound. Firstly, the “blend” setting will introduce clean signal into the overdrive, with the clean being set at unity gain. The overdriven signal is controlled by the level dial, so you’ll get fine control over exactly how much dirt passes through to your amp.

On the other side is a “tone” control that affects the higher frequencies of the sound. There’s a low pass filter installed here, so you can influence and shape the signal to your exact liking. Turn it anti-clockwise to let a brighter sound shine through, or roll it clockwise to dampen those higher frequencies and let the bass ring out.

Secret weapons

The B1k boasts some secret reserves of musical spice to enhance your tone. Those are the “MBoost” and “Grunt” DIP switches on the bottom of the peal. Need to cut through the mix? Switch on MBoost and enjoy a small DB injection to lift your sound above the mix. Want the sound to get thick and syrupy? Engage the Grunt switch and reveal those super heavy bass booms.
