We are thrilled about these ultra cool Finnish overdrive pedals. We love them so much that we have a full range commitment. You'll find all the models in stock at all times. It's been a while since we've been so impressed by any bass pedal.
Not only are they made using only th best parts and correct circuits (JFET y CMOS) but they've also been designed by bassplayers for bassplayers.
If you wanted a great rock tone in the past you had to carry either two bass amps (one clean, one distorted) or even a bass amp (clean) and a guitar amp (dirty). The clever dudes at Darkglass Electronics have builts some extremely musical overdrive units that come with a really nice extra: the Blend control. Even f you dial in an extreme distortion that's also treble heavy, the Blend control allows you to decide what percentage of your sound will be affected but the overdrive. In practice you can either go from a mild overdrive tone, a full bodied distortion or even an extreme sound but you never loose your bottom end.
This is the Vintage Microtubes model and despite its small size (pedalboard friendly), it offers an incredibly amount ot top notch overdrive tones. Controls are Drive (amount of overdrive), Blend (mixes the clean input signals which remains at unity gain) and Level (controls the output level of the overdriven signal). Thanks to the excellent parts and electronic design, you get a most musical (and addictive) overdriven/saturated tone we've ever heard for electric bass.
But wait, there's more: the ERA control nteracts with the Drive knob to shape the character of the pedal. Dial it down to get the warm midrange tones of the 70s or crank it up to get the punchy metallic tones of 80s and 90s rock. We just cannot think of a great overdrive sound that cannot be achieved with this coool pedal.
