That's short for Bill Bruford. The Vortex's Bleen B setting replicates
Bruford's signature snare clank, and sounds like dozens of tiny Bills being
dropped onto a reflective surface from a modest height.

(Actually, BB's are tiny round metal pellets that are fired from an air
rifle. I think it stands for "Baby Buck", but I'm not sure...)
