Great sound with the mid range package and premium price
Tpld, 28.08.2020
It sounds as dark as it writes in it's descriptions. Great sonic spectrum and nice selection of long padding reverbs and some noise capability there. Wouldn't mind seeing stereo out to widen the sound tho.

Construction feels the most fragile amongst other boxes I have. It doesn't come with rubber stickers to put underneath, just metal there.

Handling can take some time, to know what's what and how does it react or to know what's going to happen once you switch it on. On the other hand it can be inspiring as well.

A really interesting reverb with a massive sound
rey del espacio, 20.02.2021
I've been using the pedal for quite some time now and it was exactly what I hoped for. I've been using with guitar and analog synths and it reacts very well with both.
If you already have a reverb and you want a more experimental pedal to create huge ambient textures, add more darkness to your clean guitar sound, or maybe awaken some great old one sleeping under you city, then this is it!

pros:
great dark sound
lots of parameters to tinker with
ideal for experimentation
its looks are awesome

cons:
it feels a bit fragile, but I could be wrong

Good atmospheric reverb
Liam D, 05.04.2020
The Dark Star adds a really nice layer of atmospheric noise to what you're playing, which for me is useful in the black metal project I'm using it for. If you're looking for a more general reverb this probably isn't a good option for you, I also have a Hall of Fame 2 and find this much better for general reverb. However, what the Dark Star specialises in, it does well.

The build in general is really good, and I love the gfx on the case. The buttons do feel a little cheap compared to the rest of the build, but work fine. Overall a nice pedal, but niche in it's use.

The Old Blood Noise Endeavors Dark Star is Superb
Ronster, 15.08.2020
I purchased The Dark Star a few months ago, and I've got no regrets about my purchase. I love a good reverb and The Dark Star is one of the best sounding pedals I've ever played through. This pedal offers a wide variety of unique sounds. Months later, and the Dark Star's tonal options continue to inspire.
