The Darkglass Electronics Vintage Deluxe takes the super warm, tube style tones of the Microtubes Vintage but adds in a 4-band active EQ, balanced line driver and parallel output. With a natural dynamic response and the organic compression of old tapes machines and tube amps it's heavily inspired by the golden era of analogue technology. It's super versatile and is worthy of a space on anybody's board!
Perfect on stage or in the studio, the Darkglass Electronics Vintage Deluxe is the next level of bass tone.View Full Specs
Level: Sets the volume of the overdriven signal.
Drive: Sets the amount of saturation in the overdriven signal.
Blend: Mixes the clean input signal with the overdriven signal. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine control of the blend ratio.
Grunt Switch: Sets the amount of low frequency content to saturate by selecting between three different bass boost levels before the clipping stage.
Attack Switch: Sets the amount of treble content to saturate: The "Boost" setting emphasizes the treble content extra clarity and presence. The "Flat" position leaves this register untouched while the "Cut" position will reduce the amount of high frequencies being saturated. This new addition helps to keep the treble portion of the signal under control, especially useful when playing with new strings and/or cabinets with tweeters!
