    Recently picked up a Dark Boost and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it yet - any thoughts about it? Adds some overdriven low end, but seems a bit too hollow or loose or something. I was looking to replace my Fulltone Bassdrive with it, and although it has more low end, it's not nearly as tight as the Fulltone and seems to cut a lot of highs. Not quite sure where to place it in my signal chain for best results either..

    Thanks!

    I know what you mean. I got one and brought it into the practice space to use on my main board and couldn't find a place it was useful. So I took it home and began using it on my practice-at- home board, much lower volume, and began to "get" it.
    Now it's back on the main board as my 1st effect...running it INTO other dirt works Very Well. I use it before an MXR BOD or before a Brown Dog or Xotic BB. Makes for a synthesizer like attack that SLAMS. (by itself it doesn't have enough midrange to cut the band's mix)
     
  3. I run mine after all other effects. It does a great job of adding low end to those effects that sound great but loose low end.

    Awesome, thanks guys. I've been using it after most of my effects, but I think I'm gonna try it before the fuzz especially. I use an Xotic Bass RC Booster near the end of my chain to add bass that my effects may lack, so putting the Dark Boost before all of the fuzz may be the ticket. I really don't want to give up on this pedal so soon...
     
  5. Not to be obtuse, but it is called the "dark" boost. That tells me that its gonna cut highs. shrug.gif

    Slam it into Tubes That is by far my favorite use for it.
     
  7. And may be exactly why I'd like it. In my continuing search for "The Perfect Overdrive," I've been searching out pedals that don't have harsh, fizzy highs. Hmm... must go take a look...

    You're not being obtuse - I did expect it to be all about the low end, but I didn't quite expect it to muddy the sound like it was. I'm gonna play around with signal chain positioning and I think that might help a lot. Thanks for the feedback, everybody!
     
  9. Hey man, I noticed you submitted clips to the clip data bass for the Dark Boost, however when I try to check them out it says something about your account being inactive or something. Anyway you could post those clips in some fashion? I really wanna check out this pedal a bit more than one youtube video. I'm hoping this could be the full but not buzzy OD I'm searching for.

    & thanks for your cutom devi twin demo; was a deciding factor on me getting an Aenima and I love it :)
