Darkglass Thunder!

23.02.2016
I continually use this pedal to spice up my bass tone. I have quite a poor bass that I run through the B3K and it seems to add so much to the sound.

I mainly bought the pedal for my home studio. Because I produce metal bands, this is a welcome addition. The 'attack' switch seems to add a very nice amount of harmonics in the upper mids around 1.5KHz, which is just the right area to cut through the midrange of heavy guitars.

I did have a problem with my unit upon receipt - I could not bypass the pedal once it was switched on. I sent back to Thomann and sure enough, they sent it back to Darkglass for them repair (all postage paid, I should add) and it was replaced. Thomann never fails to amaze me with its customer service skills.

I really think that Doug and his team over at Darkglass are doing something completely different with their products and would continually buy the products they put out.

A versatile, must-have pedal

23.12.2015
From the very moment I took the pedal out of the box, I understood why it has become such a top-seller overdrive pedal. The build seemed very stable, the knobs were understandable and easy to use. When I plugged it in and played I knew that this pedal is a keeper. Even through my student 15watt amp it showed its capability. Imagine it in a studio room with high quality amplification systems. It blew out my mind even more then, especially when I tried it in gigs at small venues. (I haven't used it in any large venue so far, but I'm pretty certain that it will not disappoint me)
Try it out guys, it's worth the money, especially if you're looking for a modern overdriven sound.
P.S. Note that it certainly is not only for metal music. I have abandoned playing metal in bands a long time ago, I mostly play modern genres of rock, and it suits just as well!
