    Blend
    Mixes the clean input signal with the overdriven signal. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine control of the blend ratio.

    Grunt Switch
    Sets the amount of low frequency content to saturate by selecting between three different bass boost levels before the clipping stage.

    Attack Switch
    Sets the amount of treble content to saturate: The "Boost" setting emphasizes the treble content extra clarity and presence. The "Flat" position leaves this register untouched while the "Cut" position will reduce the amount of high frequencies being saturated.This new addition helps to keep the treble portion of the signal under control, specially useful when playing with new strings and/or cabinets with tweeters!

    "Great pedal for Model Metal Bass Tones"
    Pros - Distortion has a great voicing and texture. Play it with a pick and you won't regret it

    Really useful tool, DI sounds great. I only tested it a couple of times, but I've got great feedback from the FOH
    Cons - The Blue led kills my eyes on stage. Is so strong and focused, that all it takes is one direct look at the pedalboard and I can't see a thing... must blink repeatedly to regain clear vision. Crazy, right?

    It does not have a second switch, to separately activate the drive. However, this issue seems to be resolved in the new pedal B7k Ultra

    "The only pedal I use"
    Pros - Awesome growling sound! It has a cool signature growl.
    Cons - It can sound a bit boomy. EQ does not have the exact frequencies I am looking for. (this is subjective) DI out quality seems not to match the price tag.
    I own it for 1-2 year, I don't remember, it is the only pedal I use! And I use it all the time, and it is ON all the time. That's how much I like it's sound!
    I don't really like the EQ controls, and I feel like the DI out signal quality is a bit weak, especially for it's price tag.
    I don't care, I am still using it :)
