Cover The Whole Distortion Spectrum With This Darkglass Electronics Microtubes X7 Bass Preamp Pedal
The Microtubes X series brings the studio method producers have been using the years to cover the whole bass distortion spectrum: from articulate high gain to punchy mild overdrive, raw and gnarly fuzz and everything in between. You now have absolute control in constructing your vision of what the perfect bass distortion texture, definition, and size should have.
The Microtubes X7 has a current draw of 70mA. Only use a regulated 9V-18V DC adapter with a center-negative plug. Due to ecological reasons, it does not accept batteries. Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.**
