Now in its second generation, the Darkglass Vintage Ultra V2 bass preamp pedal delivers even more sonic options for live and studio applications.

In response to player requests, this edition features a separate switch for the overdrive section, allowing you to toggle it without altering your other settings.

Each mid control now features a three-way toggle switch for a total of six different mid-emphasis settings.

There's a master volume control to manage your overall signal better, plus a dedicated headphone output and balanced audio out for flexible connectivity.

Complete with a switchable impulse-response cabinet emulation for lifelike direct tone, the Darkglass Vintage Ultra V2 bass preamp pedal is a one-stop-shop for great bass tone.

Darkglass Electronics considers the Vintage Ultra bass preamp pedal to be the best they've made to date. It's a portable bass preamp that offers two core tones: a massive clean sound and a vibrantly saturated sound. You can leave your amplifier and cabinet at home, plug the Vintage Ultra preamp pedal directly into the sound system, and enjoy huge bass tone with ample sound-shaping capabilities.


Master

Whereas the Level Knob controls the output of the overdrive section the Master volume adjusts the overall volume of the unit. Ideal for fine tuning the output on clean mode. It also serves as a DI level control.

Blend

Mixes the clean input signal with the overdriven signal. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine control of the blend ratio.

Level

Sets the volume of the overdriven signal.

Drive

Sets the amount of saturation in the overdriven signal.

Attack Switch

Sets the amount of treble content to saturate: The "Boost" setting emphasizes the treble content extra clarity and presence. The "Flat" position leaves this register untouched while the "Cut" position will reduce the amount of high frequencies being saturated.

Grunt Switch

Sets the amount of low frequency content to saturate by selecting between three different bass boost levels before the clipping stage.

Lo Mids

+-12dB switchable 250Hz, 500Hz and 1kHz

Direct Output

A balanced version of the ¼” output, useful for running into PA’s or studio mixing consoles.

Ground lift

Disconnects the signal ground on the Direct Output to break any ground loops. Set this switch to either position that has less noise. The switch does not affect the ¼” output.

Cab Sim

Toggle the cabinet simulation on/off on the Direct Output. This switch completely bypasses all digital circuits and allows you to get a zero latency signal when needed.

Headphones

Vintage Ultra has an internal stereo headphone amplifier capable of driving a minimum load of 16 ohms from the 3.5mm stereo jack. Use the Master volume control to adjust the level.

USB

A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to PC/Mac to load cabinet simulation impulse responses to the pedal and control various other settings.

Aux In

This 3.5mm stereo input allows you to practice with backing tracks from e.g. your smartphone or laptop. Auxiliary input can only be used with the headphone output. The pedal does not control the level, it must be set from your audio source. Remember to always first set the level low before connecting anything to the aux in!

DIMENSIONS

WARNING

 

WARNING: When the pedal is on bypass the master volume does not affect the headphone volume. In this case, the total volume is adjustable in Darkglass Suite. With sensitive headphones, the bypass volume can be very loud if not adjusted.

The Vintage Ultra with Aux-In has a current draw of 120mA. 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
