I did check out the Vintage as well, at least in videos.
I liked it too, but tought it was a bit more of a mellow overall tone than the B3K.
I appreaciate the sound of the Ibanez, but wasn’t as crazy about it for what I was looking for at least. When I Stompenberg’ed the B3K, I found a few tones I was super crazy happy with and exactly what I think I am looking for.
@eric.kiser, ya I know it isn’t the bass one on there, but, the sound concept of the tone is at least in my mind of a similar ilk. It’s super cool, but not exactly what I hear in my head.
I now fully understand why pedals go 'round and 'round in the world.
They are the equivilant of saxophone mouthpieces (except significantly cheaper, thank goodness!!), and both are all about chasing that tone/sound concept in your head.
One of my favorite sax players is Pharoah Sanders. He occasionally goes into Roberto’s Winds in NYC and will wipe them out of vintage mouthpieces. He is in his 80s and still not happy with his ‘sound’, he is still chasing it even though I think his sound was amazingly perfect decades ago.
