I love the Darkhorse for bedroom volume playing. I leave it in the pure mode 99% of the time, set mostly clean, and use a lot of fuzzes, chorus and reverb. never had a problem with any pedals in front of it.
I really only play in my apartment, so I keep it at TV levels or below. it can get really quiet in the 2w mode, and the USA mode is quieter than the pure mode (but I prefer the pure mode). admittedly, I keep the master pretty low - I know some people around here don't like doing that. but as a pedal platform at low volumes, I think it sounds really good.How does it sound at normal fun/ practice levels? I don't need it for gigging. Looks for bedroom - practice levels
