    Never thought I’d be a Darkglass fan from what I initially thought of them. I figured they were a young (or old) metal guy’s pedal. Well I tried the Vintage Microtubes as an OD for my big board to achieve some mild OD on a few classic rock tunes. While I’m sure there are pedals that may have been a better choice, the VMT did not disappoint. Has a nice creamy mild grind that sounds great in front of my tube Bassman rigs. It may not be a true representation of old school bass OD but it sounds great and it sounds natural and it was easy for me to dial in. Count me still pleased.

    So this past week I was looking for a good preamp pedal to go on my smaller board that I use mainly with my fretless in a married singer songwriter duo I play with. I was gonna get the MXR as I’m a. If fan.... but on a whim I went with the B7K. It’s a very well laid out pedal and I got some great tones out of it with my fretless. It will work great as a board mounted pre I can run as a FOH board, which I’ll need. Once again I found the drive channel on this pedal to be very natural and satisfying as well. So now I just have to figure out a way to get that grind in some of these tunes.

    Very surprised and impressed with DG.
