    I have one of the new ones with the 2 Boost Options and there is no literature nor info on what the differences are EQ wise. You'd think a $400 pedal would have some sort of info.

    I tried contacting Darkglass with no luck. Anyone?

    There's... no newer version than this? Unless they released a version that they didn't announce, isn't available online and they didn't update their website to display it.

    Do you have a picture of your pedal with two boost options?

    That's the one. I've emailed them twice with no response. I guess they want to keep it super secret that it's better.

    I guess I stand corrected. Further in that thread it says it performs the same as the previous version.

    Another couple of posts down from the picture post was one with this comment:
    and then this:
    Somewhere there was a discussion that involved the difference being pretty much inaudible for cabs without tweeters - basically, it affects only higher frequencies.

    Just MHO - you should go subscribe to that thread, since it's where more of the DarkGlass product discussion happens. Also, Douglas and Spencer read and post there pretty frequently, so you probably stand a better chance of the question getting noticed, and replied, to the benefit of the full DG community.

    I do agree the usage sections of -all- the DG products is pretty scant, since I too like to understand how things work.

    OTOH - a lot of the controls interact, which is hard to describe, and ultimately, there is probably value to be had in "plug it in and play with it" turning knobs and seeing what they do to your sound, in combination with your instrument and your amp, that wouldn't translate well to prose anyway.

    I need to do that very thing, but frankly I pretty much just use it as a clean EQ and DI for the most part... Playtime will come...
