The Beta is designed to give you everything from mild Motown thump to a punchy, full-range push in a compact, easy to dial package. The Beta’s specially tuned JFET preamp and subtle germanium clipping offer a wide range of musical drive that is very tube like in its sonic characteristics. Although it can be subtle enough to be used as an always-on tone shaper, the Beta is by no means bland. With its tailored EQ and distinct gain structure, the Beta has just the right amount of attitude to cut without being overly assertive or fizzy. It is a great tool to add warmth to modern rigs or more edge to vintage setups. If you are looking for a great bass overdrive that is versatile without being vanilla, the Beta is for you.
Although the new Cream & Onyx Beta sports a fresh look the circuit itself has not been changed and is sonically identical to the original cream and orange version.
