The Vintage Deluxe is based on the more compact Microtubes Vintage, an interesting overdrive pedal capable of many tones, spanning through many decades. With a suite of additional controls and features, the Vintage Deluxe takes things more than just one step further. Like the Microtubes Vintage, the Vintage Deluxe has Blend, Era, Level and Drive controls. Topping it all off with a full three band EQ and a new XLR direct output and a 1/4” Parallel output. These features take the Vintage Deluxe beyond overdrive and into the realm of preamp. Ultimately their goal was to improve upon the Microtubes Vintage, while still providing the natural dynamic response of classic tube amps and tape machines.

The Level control does the obvious volume duties and Drive sets the amount of grit and saturation. The full three band EQ sets the Bass, Middle, or Treble to flat at 12:00 for each knob. With ability to cut or boost each frequency 12dB! Era is a control completely unique to Darkglass. It’s highly interactive with the Drive control to bring you through 70’s, 80’s, and even 90’s heavy tones. For bass players especially, and I find it nice to be able to add varying amounts of clean signal to my grit with guitar.

It features a very powerfull 4 bands EQ, a balanced line out with lift/ground switch and a parallel output to run your signal in another amp or chanel of the mixing board. Also, none of Darkglass products will ever again include battery snaps! It can be powered with a regulated 9V power supply (center negative). You can also experiment with 12V power supply for extra headroom. Ouh, and we have to tell you that the Microtubes Vintage Deluxe works perfect with both active or passive instrument.
