Taking inspiration from the excellent Hyper Luminal Compressor pedal, the Darkglass Element sports a minimalistic design with a plain surface and zero control knobs.
In place of control knobs, the Element makes use of three fully-tactile slider-potentiometers with positioning LEDs, meaning the Element is both aesthetically pleasing and intuitive to use.
Versatile Range Of Cab Sims
The Darkglass Electronics Element comes equipped with a bank of 5 studio-quality cabinet simulations right out of the box, as well as the ability to add more via the Darkglass Suite software package, using either a USB cable or Bluetooth connection.
Not only that, but Darkglass are continuously increasing their Impulse Response database, not to mention the potential to load any custom IR that you may have from third party sources.
As if that wasn't enough, as time goes on there will be future upgrades to increase the Element's functionality.
Suitable For All
Whilst most of the products within the Darkglass arsenal are aimed solely at bass guitar players, the Element offers something new: multi-instrument compatibility!
Whether you play bass, guitar, synth, or even electronic drum kit, this pedal-sized headphone amp is simply perfect for silent practice, especially when sitting at the end of your pedalboard chain.
In addition to this, you can even hook it up to an amplifier output (with a separate load or speaker cab connected) and transfer the signal direclty to a Front of House or recording system, vis the XLR DI output.
As if all of that wasn't enough, Darkglass have added in the latest Bluetooth A2DP technology, which will allow you to stream backing tracks from a tablet or smartphone.
In addition to this, two headphone outputs allow interactions with another player, making it an incredibly helpful tool for collaborating on compositions, or working through tricky rehearsals in tim for live performances.
