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.

The Finnish-made Microtubes X Ultra has a six-band EQ and splits your sound through two variable low-pass and high-pass filters. The high-pass handles mostly the mids and high-end and, like the others in the Microtubes series, is distorted with CMOS circuitry. The low-pass is left clean and subsequently processed by the the pedal’s built-in compressor, which is easily adjustable.

Why does this matter? Well it allows the mids and highs to handle the dirt and crunch, from which you can tease all kinds of harmonics and overtones, while the clean lows add weight and clarity. This neatly sidesteps those issues of unwanted fuzz and rumble when the low end distorts and keeps your bass sound huge, which is how you want it. It features all the versatility and sonic possibilities of the Microtubes X7 plus a single user loadable cabinet simulation impulse response, a micro-USB B port to connect to PC/Mac to load a different Virtual Cabinet through the Darkglass Suite, a 3.5mm headphone output with cabinet simulation and a balanced XLR output with switchable cabinet simulation.
