Darkglass expands bass amp range
Denmark’s respected Darkglass has expanded its range of bass amps with three new models. A year after the launch of the Microtubes 900, Darkglass has launched the Microtubes 500. Offering 500 Watts RMS and in a more compact and lighter format, the Microtubes 500 is a more affordable option for bass players who don’t require the power the Microtubes 900 offers, while maintaining the same tone, flexibility and quality design of its predecessor.
Dual Microtubes Engine: powered by B3K and VMT
Clean, B3K and VMT channels can be selected from front panel or by optional footswitch
Gain and Master controls for the Clean channel
4 Band Active Equalizer
Two-way Mid Frequency switches for Lo and Hi Mid controls
XLR Direct Output (pre/post preamp, but unaffected by Master Volume)
Effects Loop (unaffected by master volume)
