Darkglass Electronics Partners with Neural DSP for the First Official Microtubes Plugin
Darkglass Electronics has made its mission to serve bass players in the never-ending quest for the perfect tone. They have relentlessly worked to push the engineering and design envelope, continuously improving their products to help bassists be more creative and get the most out of their equipment.
"When we started in 2010, there were only a handful of high-quality bass preamp/overdrive pedals, which meant bassists more often than not had to go for effects designed for other instruments to craft their sounds.

Initially, we were skeptical; our circuits are much more complex than your usual guitar overdrive...
Trickfish Amplification unveils the all-new TF408 bass cabinet, which previewed at the 2018 Winter NAMM Show. The design is centered on the new 8” custom Eminence ferrite bass drivers, designed in conjunction with Trickfish’s System Designer Anthony Fregoso and the team at Eminence.
“This cabinet is one of the last projects we were able to work on with Trickfish founder Richard Ruse. He no doubt wanted to capture the focus and speed of the 8” drivers but also wanted to harness that power into the right enclosure to make a 4x8 that would stand up to the highest demands. Richard's first response upon hearing the first prototype was 'Concentrated Evil!'....he knew he got it right!” - Ryan Owens, Trickfish VP
The TF408 features impressive specifications making it a great stand-alone cabinet and an absolute game changer as a two-cabinet stack. Weight-saving measures were taken into account while not losing the main objective of a killer compact cabinet that would be at home on stages...
