Another great TC Electronics product!
Ok. There's a million different distortion pedals you could choose. I chose this one because I'm a very loyal TC electronics fan and I needed a separate distortion pedal in my signal chain. My main rig is an 84 Gibson Standard into Marshall DSL40C with a Creamback speaker. That's no way I can improve on that however, I use an A/B switch to a pair of Peavey's for my Clean channel and a looper. Enter the Dark Matter. It's perfect for my style and preference. The separate bass & treble controls are a plus. It's super well-built and designed which is typical for TCE. Not all distortion pedals fit all players and equipment but this is a brand that you can trust so it's worth a try. This is my 4th TCE pedal and not my last!
