Overview of Darkglass Electronics
It is fair to say that many of the best in boutique guitar effects hail from the States, so once in a
while something a bit closer to home refreshes the shelves at Guitar FX Direct. Hailing from Finland
and bringing a sense of heavy metal gloom (remember Lordi?) is the bass pedal powerhouse of
Darkglass is currently celebrating its 5th
birthday – and many happy returns. Founded at the request
of a friend, Darkglass Electronics has risen to capture a sense of nostalgia in the imaginations of
countless bass players.
Darkglass do not deal in compromise; this is tone as raw, rich and dark as it comes.
Darkglass Electronics products
Darkglass revel in all things vintage, harking back to the days of classic rock and metal pulling at the
tendrils of The Who and Black Sabbath but make no mistake the pedals are as up to date as they
come. For the discerning bass player Darkglass’ small but perfectly formed catalogue offers a tube
driven sound in a stylish, if simple, footswitch.
Both the Microtubes range and the vintage deluxe pedal blend tone control and usability into one
convenient package, with a seemingly endless range. This is not so much amp-simulation as
beautifully crafted homage to beautifully crafted tone.
Although there is a distinct bass leaning from Darkglass, the pedals are at home with a six-string as
well, with the Vintage having a guitar specific model; perfect pre-amps and effervescent effects to
make the mouth water.
