You be the judge
It's a Dingwall!
Even on my cell phone speaker, that one note sounds great. I dismissed the X7 as just another DG variant, but wow. I may have been wrong about that. Perhaps a DG improvement?
Dingwall and Darkglass go together like peanut butter and jelly, but even better: more taste, less fattening
Definitely an improvement: for my money, it's pretty far and away the best thing they've ever made. Seems like the final realization of the original tone goal that @Darkglass had in mind when he first started building pedals.
To get tones like this you used to have to run parallel tracks in your DAW with a half dozen plugins or so on each, or dual amp and pedalboard chains: to be able to get the same result straight off the DI of a single pedal is just crazy.
@wvbass, the same pedal can also be used for more traditional lower gain tones like this as well:
You nailed it with that assessment. Both the X and BK series were made with the same tone in mind.
The main difference between both is a decade of experience in electronics engineering and hanging out with audio engineers.
I got to listen to both on something better sounding than an iPhone. Two great sounds with a good bit of distance between them.
Once I have a place for that kind of tone for more than a song or two a night, I might just have to upgrade my B3k.
Thanks for posting these!
And dat bass tho... wow
What do you use for strings?
Happy to spread the word!
For the Dingwall? I use Dingwall Long Scale Nickel: the bass is usually tuned BEAD, but I tuned up a half step for this one.
How about this fanned fret beast?
