Darkglass B7K Ultra Limited Kraken Edition!
The artwork on "The Black Kraken Beast" has been designed alongside famed Argentinian artist Ignacio Bazán Lazcano, known for his visual work on such legendary game franchises as Halo Wars 2 and the Hollywood blockbuster Kong: Skull Island. This excellent Limited Edition pedal truly combines art, form and function in one stellar package.
The gorgeous laser engraved Kraken artwork on the pedal represents the tonal depth of the B7K Ultra and inspires the players to search their inner depths and take the tonal plunge with the mythical Kraken.
Who knows what lies beneath?
The Microtubes B7K Ultra, from Darkglass Electronics features all of the versality and range of its predecessor (the excellent B7K), as well as a whole host of new features. The B7K Ultra is an absolute tone-crafting beast.
Gives you Absolute Control!
With its array of controls and options, the B7K Ultra allows you to craft and fine-tune your tone to perfection, giving you the option of utilising a crisp, punch clean preamp or ear-shattering, high-gain distortion, and everything inbetween.
How it Works
The control and fine-tuning at your disposal is all down to the exquisite array of knobs and switches housed on the B7K Ultra. First there's the Master knob, letting you control the output of the unit's overall volume, working also as a DI level control. Next comes the Blend control, which you use to mix both the clean and overdriven signals (the clean signal remains at unity gain throughout, with the overdrive signal being set by the Level knob, giving you absolute control of the blend ratio). Then there's the Level control, which (as stated earlier) lets you set the volume of the overdriven signal. Drive is where you set just how much saturation is in the overdriven signal.
Accurately Sculpt Your Perfect Tone
In addition to those control knobs you have the 4-band EQ controls for Bass, Lo Mids, Hi Mids & Treble, which grant you a 12bB cut/boost option for each respective frequency range. There's also the two switches: Attack and Grunt. Attack is where you set the amount of treble content to saturate via one of three settings: "Boost" emphasises extra clarity and presence, "Flat" leaves it untouched and "Cut" reduces just how many hi frequencies are affected. Grunt acts in a similar way, but for low frequency saturation. Finally there's the Direct Output socket, which is a balanced version of the standard output, making it perfect for use with PA systems or studio mixing consoles.
