Building on the design of the successful Microtubes 900, Darkglass is proud to annouce the more compact and lighter format, 500-watt Microtubes 500.

It's been an extraordinary year since our first Microtubes 900 was made. Our goal was to develop a unique bass amplifier with no compromises: distinctive sonic characteristics, unparalleled flexibility, ludicrously powerful and beautifully designed. The strategy was to have a high performance, high value creation that bassists around the world could desire and aspire to own.
An audacious step for our company, to compete in the most established segment in our industry, while maintaining all the characteristics that have made Darkglass Electronics a renowned brand around the world. Most thought the Microtubes 900 was the culmination of our master plan, when in reality it was only the first step. 2000 units later -plus some tricks learned- and we are ready for step two: bringing the same tone, flexibility, design plus a few new features to the masses.
