A big step forward in the Darkglass family

daryodolls, 14.04.2018
Having owned most of Darkglass products, I must say that this last update is a big leap forward, especially concerning the cabinet emulation. The basic pedal is pretty much the same as the B7K v1 (check previous reviews of B7K for basic infos), the headphone output is a nice addition but the real game changer is the cabinet emulation. This is done by adding (first time ever for Darkglass) a digital processing: somebody might complain about it, but it doesn't sound digital at all and there is no perceivable lag. It is simply done in a clever way, and it dramatically expand the sonic possibilities of the pedal. You will simply want the cabinet emulation always on, and the small editing to de done on the PC is so easy that it's a no brainer: just browse through some 10 cabinets, listen to them and choose the one you like most. All IR cabinets loaded on the Darkglass Suite are proprietary, and they all sound very good, for rock and metal tones you don't need anything else. The good news is that some of the are able to make the B7K v2 sound more "mellow", which was very difficult to achieve with B7K v1: now some classic rock tones are possible, still retaining the Darkglass definition and grit. This pedal has become my new Swiss knife, it's always in my gig bag both as a main rig or backup. The IR cabinets are such a great advantage that it's worth the upgrade, just try it and you won't go back!

Darkglass has once again surpassed itself

Roughy5150, 03.05.2018
I had been using a non-Ultra B7K from Darkglass for about 4 years and was completely satisfied with it. The Ultra-Update had left me quite cold at first, but with the newly integrated Cabinet-Simulation Darkglass has created an absolute added value! Via a USB cable, the Ultra V2 can be connected to a PC or Mac and with the Darkglass Suite (available on the Darkglass homepage) various cabsims can be loaded onto the device. There are various (very very good!) Boxes of factory available (including Adam "Nolly" Getgood or Dave Hollingworth) or it can be played on the PC own IR files. The Cabsim can also be switched on and off via the switch. This upgrade makes the B7K Ultra the perfect standalone solution for recording and gigs.

The workmanship is Darkglass typical flawless and super robust. The operation is quite simple despite the close placement of the controls and switches, and the sound is incredibly flexible thanks to many options. The Cab-Sim just makes sense for heavily distorted metal sounds and delights every soundman;)

The only drawback that strikes me personally negatively, is the elimination of the "Through" output to lead the clean bass signal to the recording or FoH console - but you can absolutely live with this ingenious box!
