What kind of bass does he play?
That's a custom Dunable. It's like a Yeti guitar shape and pickguard with a single P pick up.
Loving the B3k + Alpha Omega Ultra combo!
I'm in love with my B7KU.
Can I get a number?
Greetings from Chile
Its a beautiful thing!!! Welcome to the Darkside my friend. You're in with #269!!!
So we are doing some pre-production recording to button up the writing on some songs. Nothing I can share as of yet... but, man, that X7 is incredible. One of the guitarists recorded a bassline with his bass DI/Preamp as a placeholder until I could swing by. The difference was HUGE. I bumped the gain a bit more than normal and same with the higher mids and highs. Loved it. I still stand by that the X7 is the best non-instrument bass gear purchase I have ever made.
Off topic, but figured my Darkglass brethren might be able to help. If I want to run samples off my board (totally separate to my chain and just going direct to desk, an 808 bass drop for example), what's the best way to go about it? Something like a Digitech Jamman and straight into a DI box to FOH?
Sounds like you got the right idea. I'd run it separate from the your board though. So you'd be running 2 lines to the FOH.
Yeah that would be the idea, I run my board into my head then DI from the head to FOH. I'd just be putting the pedal on my board for convenience of triggering the sample really and running it separately to a DI box.
That Lakland is beautiful. Good choice, man...
Thank you! It gets dirty with those nords
Is it normal to have heavy background noise when I kick in the distortion?(even I dialed to a light distortion setting)
Really obvious for that noise (especially in live situation). Wounder if it is normal.
We need more details- which Darkglass pedal? What are you powering it with? What other pedals in the chain (and are they daisy-chaining off the same power?)? Does your cab have a tweeter? Etc... I’ve owned most of the Darkglass pedals and through my rig none of them have been excessively noisy at low gain. Usually noise issues with DG pedals are power supply related- either the supply itself or something daisy-chained with the DG that doesn’t get along
Sounds like a whole new rabbit hole to me!
B7K v2, I m using a new strymon R300 power pedal for individual power supply so power is not a problem. (Also I have try the suggested one-spot power and plugging just the B7K, doesnt solve the noise issue)
I dont know whether the noise is just normal distortion effect or real problem.
I'll be following this as well. Same issue. Going to a Mesa Subway D800+ into a Subway 115 cab. I have a TCE Sentry noise gate I'm considering moving over from my guitar board. I know ... horrifying.
Current setup. MT900 V1. X on the pedal board. The new cab setup seems to work best with the VMT engaged for always on and the X for a boost. The cabs are 410s RevSound for top Genz Benz has more low end. Overall it is massive.
The soundman always told me to lower the gain but I dont even get it to an extreme setting. Just kick in the distortion and the background noise will come eventually. Wonder know is this the nature of B7K or real my B7K issue.
When I had a B3K/B7K years ago, I found the voice of the pedal definitely emphasizes highs and high-mids that make noise in my signal more apparent, but never found the pedal in itself to add excessive internal noise to my signal unless I was in high gain territory (I know “high Gain” is subjective though, I don’t play with nearly as much gain as many in here).
I assume you’ve tested isolating the noise to the B7K by placing a muting pedal like a tuner beforehand to see if it goes away? Are you daisy-chaining other pedals on the same output of the Strymon when you hear noise?
