The TC Electronic Dark Matter distortion pedal is truly musical, with its all analog-drive circuit. It covers a super-wide range of sounds that recall plexi sounds with both a classic and modern edge. Low compression and vintage voicing give it an outstanding sound.
- Small footprint
- Vintage-voiced distortion with extreme dynamic range
- Gain and Level controls to dial in just the right amount of boost or distortion
- Active Treble and Bass controls
- Mini-toggle offers midrange shift, from retro to more modern
- True Bypass
TC Electronic has always built excellent pedals. Clean, quiet and rugged, they are big-boy gear for when quality counts. Recently they’ve changed the look and design of many of their pedals to accommodate the trend toward smaller pedalboards. Rest assured, these are still the same top-of-the-line pedals—if anything, made better. Not cheap, but highly recommended.
