Easy desision

I was looking for a tube-like bass overdrive pedal for long time and had been struggling between several other overdrive and fuzz pedals until I bought this one. I can truly say, that when I found it, it was the easiest decision I've ever made.. about buying a pedal that is.

All the features are very easy to understand but can be pretty versatile sound-wise. When using the "blend" knob which adjusts the ratio between clean and overdriven signals, it doesn't loose any low-end and maintains the middle range frequency that gives it it's natural warm-tube like sound. With "era" knob it is possible to change your sound from more warm and mid-focused tone to more define and cleaner sound as it gets slightly more agressive and actually start to sound like one other Microtubes pedal - B3K. The versatility of tone really gives you that kid excitment and gets you playing with it.

The only minor thing that got me conserned was the placement of power supply jack but when using it on a pedalboard it doesn't matter so much.

I definitely recommend this pedal to anyone who can afford the price. It really is worth every cent.

Sounds great, very versatile, high quality, good value for money

One of my favourites Drives for bass. I own 6 different drive pedals, each one with its own character of course. But the Darkglass Vintage Microtubes is something really special. I am using it since months now, so I review it on a long time based experience ; ) Its circuit provides a great sound. The DRIVE knob defines the amount of drive. Since this affects the overall level, with the LEVEL knob you can compensate it or get a volume boost when adding drive and raise the overall level as it fits to your need. The ERA knob makes the Vintage Microtubes pedal unique. Turned all the way down, you get a darker and more mid-focused tone that may remind you of the 70's, and as you turn it up the tone becomes gradually more modern. The BLEND adds a lot of versatility in building up your favourite sound: you can mix dry and wet signal as you like. Blending in some of the dry sound helps preserving a sense of the original tonal attack, something very useful in most situations. Very well manufactured pedal, great quality materials, from the chassis to the knobs: high end stuff! I would preferred to have the power supply input on the upper side of the pedal instead of having it on the jack input side of the box, but this issue is maybe just personal. All in all this pedal is really a good value for money. I LOVE IT
