    This is a brand-new Darkglass Microtubes MT500 amp (no footswitch), purchased January 17, 2019 and played less than 2 hours. I just have too many amps, and I can basically get all of the same (or very similar) distorted sounds with either my Mesa Walkabout or Mesa WD-800 amps, by dialing-in a lot of tube gain. As you can see from the receipt included in the attached photos, I paid $735 ($793.80 with tax) on January 17.

    I would return the amp to Sam Ash Music, but they will only give a store credit, and I don't need nearly $800 in new gear!

    By the way, the clean (non-Microtubes Engine) channel has a very nice. clean tone. The amp sounds very nice through my MAS 112 cabinet, too!

    Since when does Sam Ash only offer credit on a return? Did they make that clear to you before buying it? I would challenge that. I return stuff to Sam ash all the time for a full refund.

    That’s what they told me at the Franklin Mills (Philadelphia, PA) store when I purchased it. If they would give me a refund, I would just return it, because I’m losing money by selling the amp, as you can see from the receipt that I showed in my listing.

    Unless it changed to a shorter policy, Sam Ash retail has a 30 day return policy. Online it's 45 day guaranteed. I would go to the store and speak with the manager if necessary. Sam Ash stores still have some old school music store attitude and service varies by store, but they do have a return policy and it exists for a reason. Good luck!
