2016 marked the first entry for Darkglass Electronics into the amplifier market with the release of the original Microtubes 900. What started out as a daring, experiment in a highly competitive industry segment, is now a thriving family of powerful and flexible amplifiers that fulfil a multitude of desires for the modern bass player.

Updating the smallest model and now featuring either of the celebrated signature Dual Microtubes and Alpha·Omega drive engines as model options, the Microtubes 500v2 and Alpha·Omega 500 continue this legacy and allow for even more bass players to get hold of the latest developments. Plus with their sleek package, both of these amplifiers pack a real punch on the inside, despite their seemingly inconspicuous size.

An all new high-efficiency class D power amplifier module sits at the heart of these innovative 500-Watt models. This superior and custom-designed Darkglass module enables the usage of speaker cabs with impedance as low as 2 Ω, adding a new level of flexibility for your cabinet options. The new internal cabinet simulation is a much-requested feature, which utilizes an improved version of Darkglass Electronics’ Cab Sim/IR module. With three slots for hi-res impulse responses, which are active for both the headphone output and the balanced XLR DI output, Microtubes 500v2 and Alpha·Omega 500 are great devices for recording. Add in the auxiliary input and either amplifier is also the ideal tool for silent practicing too.

In addition, Darkglass have added their studio-grade one-knob VCA compressor with intelligent makeup gain for level consistency, while a new ultra-quiet graphic 6-band equalizer now replaces the 4-band version on the previous 500 model.

With all of these new features, Microtubes 500v2 and Alpha·Omega 500 can definitely be considered to be among the most versatile bass amps on the market today. In fact, Darkglass believes that never before has such powerful tools been packed into such a compact and lightweight format. But do not just take our word for it - these two amplifiers can definitely speak - for themselves!
