I have been getting back into "ye olde metal bass" and my tone is a bit boutiquified but ultimately it's still some kind of 250>some kind of high gain box of fuzz. Gotta find what works for you and all that stuff.



This is why I fucking love the MBD2 - I am so glad I pulled the trigger on this box early, it nails the blown super sludgy distortion sound that is not a straight up fuzz. I guess you nailed it on the head that for what darkglass is, is really not my bag when it comes to heavy music.

I am still in wanky 80's thrash metal, with some Pantera thrown in the mix.

i don't know SHIT about...

a) modern bass players

b) modern styles

c) modern gear

i'm operating on what tidbits i can remember from gigging out like... 5 years ago? feels like decades. but fuck me. 2020 felt like 12 years.

i remember loving Rusty Box as my basic tone into a power amp, Darkglass (whichever was the no eq dirt pedal that they originally made) for dirt, 2 or 3 fuzzes that were neat. that i think i still have.

oh. and Brian's SS/BS shizz being the BEST STUFF EVAH.

Mmmmmmm....blackened....I used to have a Mesa 400+. So good. My best sounding rig. It just got too heavy ince the kids were born (the most TalkBass thing I've ever said).

Darkglass is also weird to me. There's so much I love about their sounds but then there is this weird quality to them that sound.....fake? Not real? Like....thin somehow? It's ineffable.

you should plug your bass in to that fancy euro beep beep rack and then record it

because it would be cool

just sayin

I think the mids are weird with darkglass. Because of corona my band is just demoing shit digitally, sending stuff back and forth. THe bassist uses a lot of darkglass and I spend a lot of time eqing the mids to get them to a)exist and b)sit right.

He builds pedals in a suspect limited run model so they are ridiculously overhyped. I think he mostly known for making those hpf-things they love over there. I have his PEQ and it's really well built and wasn't overpriced. I have his overdrive too and it's eh.. functional? It sounds good and it worked well for my bass setup but it got in my way mentally. I got alot of compliments from drunk dudes when I had it always on so I dont feel like selling it. Cosmicevan has alot of them.

I used Darkglass stuff for awhile. B3K and B7k.
I think they pump the high mids for bass players to cut through a denser mix - 2 guitars in metal. It helps the bass player be heard but maybe not felt. One difference between the typical DG user and me is that I down tune a bunch.

I did use those pedals in a band, i had a tone that sounded good live and in the mix but it was insanely clangy without being buried in guitars.

B3k and 7k are my faves.
But I think Colin Marston's bass tone is the ultimate tone for literally all music, which I think might invalidate most of my opinions.

My post should have said don’t down tune.

Yeah, good for Doug for finding his groove. He is a talented designer. He nailed it for a ton of people.
