It’s been a little while since we did a give away. I was on a little tour, but now I’m back in action and looking through the pile of pedals, I decided the next give away should be the Darkglass Electronics Vintage Microtubes. As you know, I’m a BIG fan of Darkglass Electronics. They primarily focus on bass players, but damn, these pedals sound great on guitar as well. The build quality and the very ‘pro’ look is very appealing to me. These guys make top notch products.
The controls are simple.. blend, era, level and drive. What I love about the pedal is the ‘blend’. The ability to mix in some dirt over your clean signal is fantastic.. and this is such an important feature for bass effects. As a bass player, you need to have that solid low end. Era dials in the tube warmth. Think of it as ‘tone’, but it’s more than that. Level and Drive are as you would expect.
This is how Darkglass Electronics describes the pedal –
The Microtubes Vintage is our tribute to some of the most legendary sounds in rock history. It provides warm tube-like tones with a natural dynamic response that echoes the organic compression of old tube amps and reel-to-reel tape machines.
