    Just noticing a big increase in the classifieds on Dark Glass Vintage Pedals for sale, is something up?

    I can't speak for every player but the Microtubes X7 and X probably have a lot to do with it.

    I was close to pulling the trigger on the Vintage Deluxe V2 until the X7 came out.
  3. The new X7 can probably get into Vintage territory. And when a manufacturer comes up with something new, this is a natural progression of events.
    It’s making them tempting, though.

    I still have mine. even though I am aware of the new microtubes x and x7, I'm still keeping my vmt. it's my most treasured bass overdrive. with that being said, I do plan on buying another darkglass pedal to go with my vmt. I was thinking of getting either the vintage deluxe or the microtubes x7.

    I've gone back to the VMT a few times now, great all around OD. I keep buying and selling them to try new things. I actually think mine is the cheapest listed on TB classifieds currently ;)
  6. I say get the X7… It’s a game changer.

    Also, maybe they're selling more new and the used market just gets a portion of that increase? I've seen them in a lot more stores over the last year or so.

    How are people dialing in the x to replicate vmt? I can only get BKish tones. I can see it getting vmt easier than AO though, the x gain structure cannot mach the harmonic bliss of the AO.

    I don’t really hear much VMT in the X7, but can verify that stacking a VMT into an X7 is a glorious combo!
