Darkglass Microtubes 500 Bass Amplifier

Darkglass is proud to introduce the Microtubes 500 Bass Amplifier Head. At 500 Watts RMS, a more compact and lighter format, the Microtubes 500 is a more affordable option for bass players that don't require the sheer power the Microtubes 900 offers while maintaining the same tone, flexibility and quality design of its predecessor.

It's been an extraordinary year since our first Microtubes 900 was made. Our goal was to develop a unique bass amplifier with no compromises: distinctive sonic characteristics, unparalleled flexibility, ludicrously powerful and beautifully designed. The strategy was to have a high performance, high value creation that bassists around the world could desire and aspire to own.

An audacious step for our company, to compete in the most established segment in our industry, while maintaining all the characteristics that have made Darkglass Electronics a renowned brand around the world. Most thought the Microtubes 900 was the culmination of our master plan, when in reality it was only the first step. 2000 units later -plus some tricks learned- and we are ready for step two: bringing the same tone, flexibility, design plus a few new features to the masses.

Features:

- Dual Microtubes Engine: powered by B3K and VMT (foot switch not included).
- Gain and Master controls for Clean channel.
- 4 Band Active Equalizer.
- Two-way Mid Frequency switches for Lo and Hi Mid controls.
- Direct Output (Unaffected by Master Volume).
- Effects Loop (Unaffected by Master Volume).
- Headphone Output.
- Speakon/Combo.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Darkglass Electronics products.

Overall: If you are looking for simplicity and power in small packages, look no further. Not only does this amp look incredible, it sounds incredible! You basically get two amazing pedals (B3k and the Vintage Microtubes overdrive/distortions) in an extremely powerful 500w Class D enclosure. The Microtubes 500 is, simply put, the greatest amp I have ever had the pleasure of plugging into. I have it paired with an Ampeg 410HLF. Note: I have not been able to turn the master volume up past 12 o'clock, in fear of literally ruining the foundation my house sits on. Spectacular! I love this amp and you will, too.
Style of Music: Hardcore, Post-Hardcore, Metal, Downtempo, etc.

Overall: Very impressed as soon as I took it out of the box. The fit and finish and quality are amazing! Plugged it in and wow!! I'm a die hard ampeg guy I own a svt 350 and a svt 4 pro and they are awesome but for the size and weight of this amp. Only 6 lbs. It can't be beat. Great tone and tons of head space and I love the built in effects. The knobs feel real nice and tight when adjusting them. I can't say enough about this little guy. Can't wait to use it at a gig. If your thinking about getting this amp you will not be disappointed!
Style of Music: I play in the Jesse quandt band. Country.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
