I believe that all of the PB-1E at SchneidersBuero are the current r3.3. You can find this on the upper-right corner of the PCB.

I've just grabbed a second-hand PB-1E 2.3. Is it markedly different from the 3.x series?
Anger is a sublimated desire for power.

Yes, it is. The primary difference is that it does not have the VC Gain feature, which was introduced with the r3.0.

Other differences:
  • Tone: The r3.x have a "thicker" tone - more low-end.
  • Self-oscillation: The ability to self-oscillate is not guaranteed in the r2.x series, nor is the range thereof as wide as in the r3.x
  • Control behavior: I believe some of the pots on the r2.3 have different taper than in later units.
I think that's it. All in all, I still like the r2.3. It has a subtly different character than later models and complements them well - I have both (r2.3 & r3.3) in my case.
