bouns83's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good light overdrive"

Darkglass Electronics Vintage Microtubes
Analog overdrive pedal compact size, true bypass, powered only by external power supply (center negative) 9 or 12 volts.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use. A drive knob to adjust the saturation level. A slight crunch we go to a good saturation suggesting saturation power tubes pushed into a corner. The blend knob lets you mix the clear sound and effect, it helps keep sound low and preserve natural dynamics. The level knob adjusts the volume of the saturated. The era button toggles a vintage sound to a modern metal overdrive.

SOUND QUALITY

Vintage is a very nice overdrive that respects the original bass sound. . We just use it to warm up the sound and give a slight grain to an amp too sage.Dans some extent the effect evokes saturation, light compression and harmonic richness of a tube amp. A far cry from the heavy distortion, but fans of light overdrive and crunch will be delighted.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it recently but I think let switched permanently history to bring a slight grain to my sound. I owned a boss odb 3 I found too synthetic and too metallic, and excellent BassDrive fulltone mosfet (which had a wider range of drive from crunch to overdrive that spot). I prefer the vintage in terms of sound quality, it is harmonically richer, warmer and more respectful of the low frequencies. Although a bit expensive but it is the price of quality.
