Product Description

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 is a more affordable option for bass players that don’t require the sheer power the Microtubes 900 offers while maintaining the same tone, flexibility and quality design of its predecessor.

Darkglass Microtubes 500 Bass Amplifier Head Features

  • Dual Microtubes Engine: powered by B3K and VMT (foot switch not included).
  • Gain and Master controls for Clean channel.
  • 4 Band Active Equalizer.
  • Two-way Mid Frequency switches for Lo and Hi Mid controls.
  • Direct Output (Unaffected by Master Volume).
  • Effects Loop (Unaffected by Master Volume).
  • Headphone Output.
  • Speakon/Combo.
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.

What is your opinion of this product?
this amp is a serious thing, 500 watts is lot (in my case) unless you are a pro, then get a 900. very well constructed, the pots are precise. the sound can vary to the extreme with the microtube set up.. I give a 9 (not 10, nothing is perfect)

The most kick-ass bass amp on the market!
What is your opinion of this product?
Douglas Castro doesn’t disappoint. I’ve loved Darkglass Electronics products since I stumbled across a demo YouTube video by Patrick Hunter. I own the B7K Ultra, and the Alpha Omega Ultra, and now, the Microtubes 500. I bought a Non Factory Sealed model from American Musical Supply, as the price was closer in reach for me than the Medusa Microtubes 900 that I’ve been drooling over. Let me tell ya:this amp delivers, and then some! I can get virtually the same tone from this, as I can with by B7KU,without having to haul my pedal board. With the B7KU and AOU, phenominal! I can fit this bass head in the storage pouch of my bass gig bag with my cables, and use my free hand to carry my isobaric 212 cab. This thing is super convenient, has the best tone, and it packs a punch for a 500 watt solid state amp. I usually play through an Orange Terror Bass 1000 to keep up with 2 100 watt tube guitar half stacks and drums, and this MT500 can keep up just fine! Get one, you won’t be disappointed!

An amp with bite
What is your opinion of this product?
I had been playing bass for many many years and have used a variety of amps Each with their own unique sound. Top tier to the bottom of the barrel and I would have to say this amp delivers on everything I need and more. Clear tones to dirty down low distortion and everything between. I urge anyone interested to see the plethora of videos on this amp if you want more proof. First five minutes I dialed in the sound I want and found other settings I'd like to explore. I'm always iffy when getting a new amp but this was love at first play.

Great investment! This thing does it all.
What is your opinion of this product?
I’ve been playing a 300 watt GK amp for over a decade. I finally decided to upgrade, and I am very happy with my choice. This thing sounds great, is super loud, and compact! It’s been a game changer for my sound.
