More info

The Microtubes 500v2 is a 500W amplifier equipped with an all-analog preamplifier, custom-designed Darkglass high-efficiency class D Module, an ultra-quiet graphic equalizer, and a digital impulse-response cabinet emulator for DI outputs or headphones.

Input

Use this jack to connect your instrument via a standard ¼” mono cable.

Passive/Active

Use this push-button switch to change from passive to active mode. If your bass is active it can have a hotter signal making the amp to distort early (feel free to use if such additional distortion is desired).

Microtubes

Use this push button to turn on or off the Microtubes Engine to add natural compression, organic harmonic enhancement, and saturation ranging from mild overdrive to high gain bass rage.

Compression

Drive

This knob controls the amount of distortion that the Microtubes Engine will deliver. It will change from a soft warm overdrive to a massive modern distortion sound. 

Tone

This knob controls the high harmonic content of the Microtubes Engine via a variable low pass filter: crank it up for additional attack and definition or dim it down for a smoother sound, especially handy if already running bright clean EQ setting or cabinets with tweeters.

Level

Use this knob to control Microtubes Engine’s output volume.

Blend

Use this knob to mix between the Clean signal and the DIstortion signal (Microtubes Engine).

B3K/VMT

This push-button switch selects between two overdrive voicings: B3K® mode will deliver an aggressive, percussive sound while the VMT will bring up the mids for a warmer, more neutral character.

Bass

+-12dB at 80Hz. Use this knob to change the low content of the signal. 

Mids

+-12dB at 250, 500,1.5K and 3Khz. This graphic eq control the mid content of the signal.

Treble

+-12dB at 5kHz. Use this knob to change the high content of the signal.

Master

Use this knob to control the overall volume of the amplifier.

Mute

Use this push button to mute the amplifier.
