Vintage Bass Tone with Tons of Control

The Darkglass Vintage Deluxe V3 bass preamp pedal serves up the tube-like tone of the company's Vintage Microtubes and offers enhanced functionality, such as active 4-band equalization, parallel outputs, and a balanced line driver. If you're looking to supercharge your bass tone with the natural dynamics and organic compression of vintage tube amplifiers and tape machines in a compact package that fits in your gig bag.

Grunt, Attack, 4-band EQ, and Blend

In addition to Level and Drive controls, the Darkglass Vintage Deluxe V3 bass preamp pedal gives you four secret weapons. The Grunt switch lets you select the amount of low-frequency content to be saturated with three LF-boost levels before the clipping stage. The Attack switch, conversely, lets you set the amount of high-frequency content to be saturated. With the switch set to Boost, you emphasize treble content for optimized presence and clarity. The Flat setting leaves highs untouched, while the Cut position reduces the amount of high frequencies to be saturated. By giving you control over the treble portion of your signal, the Vintage Deluxe V3 lets you compensate for variables like new bass strings or tweeter-equipped cabinets. To shape your tone to perfection, there's onboard 4-band EQ that offers 12dB of boost or cut. Lastly, for instant onboard parallel processing, the Vintage Deluxe V3 offers a Blend control that mixes the clean input and effected overdrive signals.
