I've owned this cab for a few months now...so it's time for a review. I considered this a gamble because 1) I didn't get to try it out first, 2) I could find precious few other reviews. However, TLDR version is that I am extremely happy with it. It has no faults so far.Rig; Demeter VTBP-201 pre & QSC GX5 power amp, also an Eden WT400.Basses; 2003 Korean-built Lakland 55-02, 2009 Jaco Artist Series Jazz, 1999 Czech-built Dean Jeff Berlin.Experience; 30 + years, a bunch of gear!Currently, I play in a cover band that does a bit of everything; rock, country, funk, jazz, pop...lots of stuff. Versatility is a must with the gear I buy. I know most of us equate Darkglass with metal (as well we should), but this cab has handled everything I've thrown at it. My ideal tone is clean & clear, with lots of support & punch. I don't care much for lots of treble, but I'm not after the B-15 sound, either. This cab has a ton of low end, but it isn't mushy or wooly. It just moves big air with clarity; pantlegs flap, booties shake, Daddy is happy. The high end is superb, with a smoothness & sweetness that is very pleasing to the ear. Big kudos for the tweeter & attenuator must be given. I normally hate tweeters, either turning them off or unplugging them, but this tweeter is actually quite musical & the attenuator works a treat, making a real difference as you work it. ...& then, this cabs' secret weapon, its midrange voicing. I am firmly in the camp that believes that bass is for moving air, treble read more is for letting everyone know where on the fretboard you're playing, & midrange is where ALL of the good stuff is. It's your tone, your voice, your sound. This Darkglass 2X12 has a killer midrange sound. It's not honky or nasally. Instead, it can go from a gut punch, low-mid hit to a eardrum battering high-mid growl with ease...& it stays, well,...usable & musical. I previously owned a Mesa Powerhouse 2X12, & so far, I like the sound of the Darkglass better. It is a perfect match for my Demeter, especially with a 5-string. If you play smooth & light, it envelops you in pillowy, fat support. If start to dig in a bit, it can really snarl. It has been great in reproducing what I want, when I want, i.e. it responds really well to my right hand technique. And if you play with a pick, do yourself a favor; check out this cab. Full disclosure, I don't slap women, & I don't slap basses. I do know a couple basic lines though, & the cab handled them so well that I'm re-thinking my stance on slapping basses!The icing on this Dark & Glassy cab is twofold. The weight, & the aesthetic. My cab of choice for many moons was an SWR Goliath II. I still own it, still love it, & it can still smack the mouse fur off of most any cab out there. But it is HEAVY & I'm not getting younger. The fact that the Darkglass weighs under 45 lbs is just fantastic. I've tried other neo-equipped cabs & have been underwhelmed by the lack of tone, but not here. The DG sounds amazing, & is lighter than I thought it would be. As for looks...well, let's just say it is stunning in the flesh. The "carbon-weave" looks like it came straight off of a MotoGP starting grid. Gorgeous...At just over $1,000.00, I consider it pretty good value for the money. Working with zZounds was completely painless, thanks gang! Sounds fantastic, looks good...I'm a happy camper.
