Darkglass Microtubes 500 V2 Head

Bass amplifier / top

After the successful entry into the bass pedal world, the ambitious South American offers us a flexible top with 500 watts at 4 ohms. If you add the generous equipment, you get a complete package for around 1000 euros that should find friends in every musical genre. Conceptually, we are dealing with a two-channel amp in which great care has been taken with the design of the distortion sounds. Both channels can be mixed via a blend control. The player can choose from mild, slightly dirty sounds to modern bass distortion.
It goes without saying that with so much thought about sound, the clean channel has been tuned just as accurately. The filters work very cleanly. The four-band EQ can also be adjusted via a toggle switch that selects the frequency of the mid-range controls. The Microtubes 500 is a real powerhouse. The 500 watts at 4 ohms seemed more than credible in the test. It is hard to believe that the unit weighs less than two kilograms - it was weighed on the in-house scales of the shipping department. In the same design, the manufacturer also supplies an Intelligent Footswitch (not included), with which you can change the channel or mute the unit with just one switch. Meanwhile, the respective mode is indicated by three very bright blue LEDs.
In the end, it would remain to spread the word about the noble aluminium outfit, but this is not really necessary in view of the congenial concept and the extensive equipment.
