The Microtubes X Ultra greatly expands on the already immense versatility of the Microtubes X7. Featuring all the great controls that its predecessor has that allows users to select exactly what frequencies they want to compress and saturate for the low and treble respectively, but with four major additions providing an additional layer of flexibility, while maintaining the same compact footprint, making it an extremely complete tool for the modern bassist.

Shape your tone with two variable filters

Before driving your tone, the Darkglass Microtubes X Ultra bass preamp pedal splits your signal with two filters. A variable lowpass filter lets you choose how much of your signal remains clean and punchy, while a highpass filter determines how much of your tone will be sent through the drive circuit. Individual level controls for each signal path allow you to balance each to your liking.

6-band graphic EQ holds your bass in the mix

Bassists at Sweetwater that play a lot of different styles appreciate the flexibility of the 4-band graphic EQ on the Darkglass Microtubes X Ultra pedal. Regardless of how many guitars, keyboards, and vocalists you're working with, you have the ability to dial in just the right midrange character to sit well in the mix. You have high- and low-shelving bands, plus sliders for 250Hz, 500Hz, 1.5kHz, and 3kHz. A master level slider allows you to compensate for extreme boosts or cuts.

Built-in cabinet simulation

To make the Microtubes X Ultra pedal a complete tone solution for bassists, Darkglass equips it with their award-winning impulse response cabinet simulation. Selectable via a button next to the XLR direct output, you'll be able to send the sound of a miked cabinet directly out to a PA system or recording device.
