Darkglass Electronics – Microtubes B1K

Front | Level
Sets the volume of the overdriven signal.
Front | Drive

Back | Tone
Controls the high frequency content of the sound. A variable low pass filter from 3 kHz to 8 kHz. Turn CCW for a brighter sound.
Back | MBoost
Gives a subtle 6 dB boost from 300 Hz to 1 kHz to help you cut through the mix.
Back | Grunt
Provides a low-end boost to massively thicken your sound when engaged.

The Microtubes B1K has a current draw of 30 mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug. Due to ecological reasons, it does not accept batteries. Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.
