Darkglass Microtubes 900 Class D Amp

  1. IMG_20180203_140948. I just picked up a Microtubes 900 today after a trade with a dealer for some guitar gear. Good deal, I think. This thing sounds huge. I loved the regular amp section and the microtubes options were icing on the cake.

    My first bass amp! What a sweet day this turned out to be!

    I was wondering the exact same thing. I suspect so but do not have any information. If the new AO Ultra proves to be popular then it would be a natural evolution for the amp.

    Hey guys, I am thinking about picking up a M900 but it is a early version. I was wondering if anyone, has had any problems with the 1st batch sent to the US?

    I picked up one of the very first from the workshop in Helsinki. No issues so far.

    My actual amp in the testing rigg. Before they gave it to me.

  5. I recorded a track using the Vintage Microtubes section and another one using the B3K section. I think it sounds great. Hopefully these will help anyone who's interested in knowing what these awesome amps are capable of.

    This is with the Vintage section engaged:


    I think it sounds very warm, and gave me a modern, yet at the same time, a very old school vibe.

    And this one is with the B3K section engaged:


    I like the fact that it is easy to fit in a mix despite the heavy distortion. Perfect for aggressive styles.
     
  6. Just pulled the trigger on one of these! Been interested for a while and thought it was time. Now I'm playing the waiting game while it ships.

    In the meantime, how are you guys carrying this thing around? I've had a look at the DG amp bag as well as the Tonehammer 500 bag, which I've read is a perfect fit and about a third of the price.

    I have the Darkglass amp bag. It's very nice.
