Designed in collaboration with Darkglass Electronics, our 35th Anniversary drive pedal goes full stealth with a black and gold colour scheme and a special 35th Anniversary logo box. Aside from the engage switch (which illuminates a very cool LED) and the usual in/out and DC power sockets, the pedal has three controls – level, drive and tone. As with all Darkglass pedals, you also get true bypass switching, a particularly hard-wearing footswitch and a super-bright LED.
While this is a stompbox capable of some impressive high gain sounds, it’s been designed to be equally effective at lower, more classic levels of drive and to be sensitive to bass playing dynamics. “We’ve blended old-school vibes, appealing visuals and some modern production techniques to create a pedal that has much more versatility than you might have assumed,” said Sheldon Dingwall. “It’s really been designed to capture the dynamic interaction between you and your bass. There’s plenty of dynamic range before the crunch really sets in.”
The result is a wide range of tonal possibilities from subtly distorted blues tones through to classic rock and metal. This is the perfect stompbox for Dingwall aficionados looking for something with plenty of future collectable prestige.
