KHDK’s most evil pedal to date, Dark Blood delivers an angry, merciless amp-like distortion. The tone of Dark Blood is tube-like and mid-heavy with added high gain. It’s unique power is its distinctly amp-like sound.
Richly articulate and deep, Dark Blood can provide the main tone into your clean amp and is ideal as a fly rig and a backup to an amp or modeling rig.
With its high gain and aggressive, uncompromising dynamics, this is the ultimate pedal for gain-freaks, designed both for palm muting riffs and searing high gain solos.
On the Dark Blood, Kirk Hammett said;
“This is the ultimate pedal for gain freaks. I plugged it in and the name “Dark Blood” came to me right away. At that moment, I knew this pedal was going on the new album.” KHDK Co-founder David Karon added, “Everybody who hears the Dark Blood is blown away by how amp-like it sounds and how much power hides in this stompbox. We used an image of the human heart in deep red lineart on the pedal to reflect this incredible life-giving power contained within a small unit.”
