Jazz- This preset has the cool, smooth jazz tone reminiscent of the late great organist Jimmy Smith. Gospel- This preset has the upper octave drawbars added to capture that great soulful organ tone.

TIPS ON GETTING OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE FROM THE B9. The B9 is best as the first pedal in an effects chain. Place modulation, delay and reverb effects after the B9. The unit will not perform well if placed in the effects loop of a guitar amp. It is not advised to place a distortion or overdrive in front of the B9.
This will muddy up the input signal and cause the tracking to be unstable. If overdrive or distortion is desired its best to place it after the B9.
Some guitar amplifiers have a uneven peaky frequency response that may cause some sounds to be over accentuated. A compressor in front or after the B9 can help smooth this out. This helps for a guitar player whos playing is less than desirable in the dynamics department.
The B9 was designed to be used with a guitar. The unit can be used with a bass guitar BUT the range the bass player can play will be limited. The unit tracks best above the C note, third fret on the A string. Below that performance is compromised. The top range using a guitar in standard tuning is the 23rd fret.
Above that the organ sound will not be heard. The B9 tracks great and will follow whatever you play, but sloppy guitar playing will sound like a sloppy organ player. The B9 will bend notes just a regular guitar does. Organs do not bend, so for a more authentic organ sound limit bending.
