Darkglass Electronics

It is hard to believe that Darkglass Electronics was only founded in 2009.

The Finnish company, led by it's Chilean founder Douglas Castro, has made quite an impact on the bass world. Their pedal effects can be found on the boards of famous players such as Tony Levin (King Crimson), Paul Turner (Jamiroquai), Billy Gould (Faith No More), Ra Díaz (Suicidal Tendencies) alongside many upcoming names in the industry.

Darkglass pedals are known to be extremely versatile, allowing the bass player to shape the pedal's sound to be exactly as he/she desires. Each circuit is well thought through and continuously refined, resulting in new models and versions being released every year. After 7 years concentrating on pedal effect manufacturing, in 2016 Darkglass electronic released it's first bass amplifier, the Microtubes 900.

Darkglass Electronics Vintage Microtubes

Warm tube-like tones with a natural dynamic response. Finding a good bass overdrive can be tricky. Overdrive pedals tend to filter out low ends causing the bass to sound thin, and one thing bass players do not like is having a thin sound. That is exactly why we like Darkglass pedals and the Vintage Microtubes in particular. The Vintage Microtubes delivers smooth and warm tube-like overdrive which adds to your sound and not takes away from it. A great feature comes with the ERA knob, dial it to chose the decade you'd like to sound like. All the way down to be in "midrange 70's" or all the way up for "metallic 90's".

Darkglass Electronics Microtubes B3K V2

A Perfect combination of brutality and clarity... The Darkglass B3K V2 is the successor of the renowned B3K CMOS which shocked the bass world. Darkglass added a Tone knob and Mid Boost switch to allow more control over the overall sound and help the player to cut through the mix. The move from toggle switches to on/off buttons is smart, as it makes the pedal more user friendly, and along with the four simple turning knobs the B3K is really easy to handle. Sound wise, as the original version, the B3K V2 is a massive overdrive pedal.

Darkglass Electronics Alpha Omicron

Two distinctive distortion channels combined in one pedal. Following the success of their Alpha Omega preamp/overdrive, Darkglass electronic released the Alpha Omega – a standard size pedal effect which delivers the two Alpha Omega mods with a simplified eq at a lower retail price. The two distortion mods, controlled by the MOD knob, are both the un-subtle, brutal in your face kind, though definitely not harsh! The bass is not being cut and is very healthy and apparent. The Alpha mod is tighter and punchier while the omega is more saturated and all over the place. Thanks to the Blend knob you can tame the distortion to fit your music style, or, if you need even more aggressiveness use the Growl and Bite switches for more mids and bass boost.
