One of the best pedals I used
Matthew Szy?ak, 08.01.2019
So basically I was aiming for this pedal for quite some time and around half a year ago I bought it. That was one of the best things I've done in my entire life. The quality of the pedal itself, how it's made and the finish is very, very good. The 2 overdrives/distortions we can blend allows for a lot of cool tones. Drive and level is quite self explanatory. The blend option is also a cool thing in the AO as it allows to blend the clean signal with the one after the effect. Definitely helpful when you want to blend a distorted and a clean tone without having 2 cabs and 2 amps. The EQ in the pedal contains 3 knobs - Bass, mid and treble. Very nice as an additional shaping tool. The growl and bite give two additional effects, that are really awesome. Got to say this pedal has a really unique sound and it's definitely worth a shot. I play in a prog metal band and this beauty fulfill my needs 100%. You can get hevily distorted, raw bass tones as well as light overdriven sounds. Just as a last note, the package of the effect is awesome! Also Darkglass adds a sticker and a pick with their logo. Nice bonus! If you have the money and the will to experiment - go for it!

Amazing Finnish quality
Miro V., 11.01.2019
Received the pedal. Plugged it in and STRAIGHT out the box my tone felt like it "stepped up" to a whole new another level. The mix and blend options (also equalizer) gives the versatility to handle whatever bass you have in your hand.

Also I love the faces on sound guys when they ask about my setup and I just ask for an XLR and plug it in and voilá - soundcheck done.

I highly recommend this to studio (obviously) but listen here - it works live like a charm. Won't stop using it.

Tried to run it through some of my analog synths as well and I gotta say that the distortion / warmth is so transparent that it doesn't eat up the pads or leads I'm having on the synth.

5/5.
