6 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 2 years' warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 6 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 180 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 6 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

TC Electronic Dark Matter Distortion Pedal

Details
The TC Electronic Dark Matter Distortion Pedal is all about that powerful, super-musical roar of an early plexi circuit, a sound mostly associated with the legendary tones before digital. From cleans with an attitude and warm, bluesy tones, to a crunch with grit for days and fully saturated lead sounds full of harmonics and overtones, it's all available and instantly achievable by riding the guitar's volume knob. The pedal features control for gain and output level, but the addition of a voicing switch and dual-band EQ provides incredible control over the pedals tone, ensuring players can dial in the perfect tone for their playing style.

An Old School Distortion

Featuring all-analogue circuitry, dual-band tone controls, and a distortion that stems from the time before digital, the Dark Matter adds degrees on crunch and punch to your sound without affecting the fundamental tone. By ramping up the voltage, to more than 3-4 times the amount of a typical drive pedal, a dramatic increase in terms of headroom and dynamics can be achieved to create an incredibly alive distortion pedal. The addition of a voicing switch allows players to add extra bass for a more modern tone or flicking it in the other direction to create a tone filled with vintage vibes.

High-Grade Components

The pedal is built from a range of the highest-grade components available, with a strong and durable metal chassis to protect the internal components against moisture and life on the road. Its small footprint takes up little room, while the easy battery access provides quick and easy power changes. Its simple design offers user-friendly operation, and is the perfect choice for beginners. Each control knob features rugged edges, which allows you to control it with your foot in live situations.

  • Delivers first-class distortion tones right out of the box
  • Analogue-dry-through design maximises tonal integrity and clarity
