Ode to Distortion
DARK MATTER is the kind of pedal that you wanna go play for half an hour and end up spending half a day with. It’s musical, covers a super-wide range of sounds but stays true to its base, an all analog-drive circuit that reminisces plexi sounds with both a classic and modern edge. DARK MATTER delivers in spades thanks to a very low compression and a lively response that reacts to your playing at every turn.

• Vintage-voiced distortion with extreme dynamic range
• 2 band EQ
• Voicing switch

Kicking Things Old Skool
Hard to imagine now, but there was a time before digital. If you think about it, many of the best distortion sounds stem from that era. Why? Well, it’s the analog circuits, they sound great and got a little more to give when you really punish them – it simply sounds more real, fuller and better. That’s the sound we love: dangerous, on the edge yet thoroughly musical. The sound that begs you to play harder, louder, faster and more.

Set for Tone
Distortion is great, but control is key. No one wants the ice-pick to the ears or a mushy bass-laden goo. DARK MATTER delivers with bass and treble knobs, perfect for dialing in sounds precisely and lightning fast.

Channel the Gods of Rock
DARK MATTER distortion adds extra versatility via a voicing switch that either adds bass for a more modern sound or fills your tone with retro vibes for an old school vintage throwback that oozes classic rock on steroids.

    Highly affordable and great pedal (€ 45!!).
    Great sound, highly tweakable, true bypass, voice swithing, nice open amp-like tone, reacts good on volumeknob of guitar, bombproof build, analog pedal, well … it doesn’t get much better than this.
