The Microtubes X7 offers bass players a piece of gear they've been looking for. Articulate high gain, punchy mild overdrive, raw fuzz and just about everything else is what you get with this powerhouse of a pedal.

Darkglass Microtubes X7 Bass Distortion Pedal Tone

The Darkglass Microtubes X7 allows you to dial in the exact frequency that you want distorted. This pedal doesn't add too much color to your raw bass tone, and enables you to distort the top end or low end depending on your needs. This pedal has a slightly scooped-mids tone compared to other series, but dial back the high drive and you'll have yourself keeps everything balanced rather well.

Why We Like It

The versatility of the Darkglass Microtubes X7 really blows us away. Not only do you get all of the distortion you could possibly want and need, but you can dial the distortion off and use the eq and low-pass filter to make the bass even lower in tone, but while still maintaining punchyness to sit comfortably in a mix.

You Might Also Consider

Want the same girthy tone in a more compact design? Say no more, because the Darkglass Microtubes X does just that. Omitting the 6-band EQ, compression knobs, and dual outputs, brings a more bare-bones version of the X7 to consumers at an even more affordable price.
