The Microtubes 500 is a 500W amplifier equipped with an all analog solid state preamplifier and a Class D Power Module. This powerful unit has 2 sections on the control panel. On the top row, you will find the clean section which is the foundation of your tone. It features a Gain control and an active 4 band EQ: along with Low and Treble controls, you will find Low Mids and Hi Mids controls, each knob with their own 2-way frequency switch.

On the bottom row, you will find the Microtubes Engine, an extra channel that will bring your clean tone to the next level by helping you cut through the mix while adding anything from subtle, tube-like, harmonics and natural compression to obliterating distortion. Other premium features include a speaker output with Speakon or1/4” cable operation, headphone output for quiet practice, effects loop, and a built-in fan for cooling the amplifier. Footswitch not included.

The Best Tone and Flexibility in an Amp


I currently have this amp paired with the DG210 cabinet. It is truly amazing. The power that this little amp provides is mind blowing, I rarely have it above the 9:00 position when playing with a metal band, two guitars, drums and vocals. The built in vintage microtubes distortion and B3k distortion gives lots of flexibility. I've also purchased the Intelligent Footswitch that also works with the 500 (though not advertised).
