Darkglass Microtubes 500 V2 Bass Amp Head


Introducing the Darkglass Electronics Microtubes 500 V2: a 500W bass amp with plenty of brawn. Don't underestimate its small size and lightweight construction though - the Microtubes 500 V2 punches well above its weight! 

Under the Hood 

Within the Microtubes 500 V2, you'll find the renowned pair of Microtubes drive engines. These offer welcome contrast. The Vintage Microtubes delivers a tone with a classic, overdriven edge to it; the B3K on the other hand is characterised by an impressive level of dynamic saturation.

They're complimented by a custom-made Darkglass, high-efficiency class-d power amp module. It lets you use speaker cabs with a low impedance (e.g. 2Ω). This makes your potential cabinet choice far more versatile than it otherwise might be.  

That's not all though. A built-in cab simulation harness an enhanced version of the popular Darkglass Electronics cab sim/IR module. This boasts a trio of slots that contain your hi-resolution impulse responses. You'll find them active for your balanced XLR DI output and the headphone output. These features (plus an aux input) make the amp ideal for silent practice and recording too! 

The package is rounded out by a quiet graphic 6-band EQ and a high-quality single-knob VCA compressor - with additional intelligent makeup gain.
