  1. Honestly, I doubt you’d regret the Darkglass if you go that way. I broke my first one after using it for about a year. I used a 12vDC power supply (which it’s supposed to be able to handle) and it stopped working (so not entirely my fault). I got in touch with Darkglass as it was still in warranty, by about a week! They arranged a courier pick up, and fixed it without any trouble or questions. But while it was gone I still had to practice, so I ordered a new one. So now I have two. I use one on my pedal board and the other is for practicing silently in bed! I can’t imagine how I ever practiced efficiently without them now! good luck whichever route you take!
  2. Same, exactly the same. and I don’t think I have the fortitude to withstand two things not turning up. I could deal with one, possibly. But if a second one were to compound it, I’d be like a runaway Fukushima/Chernobyl meltdown event.
  3. Awesome. Thanks for clarifying! I reckon I’ll get one ordered just as soon as another purchase arrives. (I don’t like having 2 valuable items in the system at a time. I guess it’s a quirky foible)
  4. why the non-bass specific one? is there a good reason or is that just the one you have experience with. interested as I was close to getting the bass one. 👍
  5. Ordered one based on this thread. Thanks!
  6. I’m trying to get a Divaricator too, and you’re right …they’re impossible to get hold of.
  7. Your ultimate practice system is: iPad with anytune pro+ Darkglass Elements …and that’s everything you need except your bass, headphones and a cable. (Obviously) the iPad connects via Bluetooth to your iPad to play your tunes through. and the Darkglass Elements has two separate inputs. It has different sounds built in, two headphone outputs, and besides the regular ‘through’ output, it has a line-level DI output too so you could use it directly into a PA system!
  8. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  9. I bought one of these on the Basschat forums a few weeks ago and I love it. Good luck with the sale!
  10. Yep, agreed. The LS2 does what most folk need really well, and they can be picked up used on here, or eBay pretty easily at a fraction of the cost. The exp pedal was the USP for me.
  11. There’s a SansAmp Paradriver just come available 2 hours ago, in the effects for sale section. £125.
  12. In and of itself, no, not really. The main thing I wanted was the ability to dial the amount of distortion in/out without all the bending down, somehow. The addition of an expression pedal allows for this. …However it’s an expensive folly, I’m the first to admit. But I have no regrets either. Just think the amount of effort I saved bending down and changing the blend knob manually. What is this, the Dark Ages? 😜🤣🤣
  13. It’s arrived, and I’ve integrated it into my pedal board. I does the job I wanted it to, really well actually. It replaced the noisy Mesquite blender (when switched), and the expression pedal functionality is good for blending the amount of distortion/clean sound on the fly. However it’s a really expensive option. Not sure it’s worth it. in fact, I’d go so far as to say, I’m pretty sure it’s NOT worth it… 🍺🍺🍺
  14. Anyone running a Gigrig wetter box? It’s basically a very well functioned blender/parallel loop pedal. I’ve done a search but there’s no results for it on Basschat. Its a bit late if there’s bad news, as I already ordered one with the Mission expression pedal bundle. I currently use a Mesquite blender, to add clean into my pedal mix but it has a couple of failings, it pops when switched on/off, and I need (no, not need… would like) a blender which is addressable with a rocker pedal. It seems like the wetter box suits the bill. Hopefully. But not a cheap folly, considering it’s not an effect in its own right. Anyone have any experience? I watched the YouTube vids but would love to hear the opinions of any Basschatters with one!
  15. Cool. Always keen to hear peoples thoughts on ‘new’ (news to me) gear!
