With the Darkglass Exponent 500 you get a premium-grade, powerful bass amplifier head, with a host of fully programmable on-board effects.

This amplifier is a brand new concept which Darkglass refer to as a Powered Platform: once connected the e500 offers an array of effects types, with fully programmable and presettable signal chains, for a professional rig setup.

Darkglass Exponent 500 Bass Amplifier Head Key Features

  • More Than Just An Amp Head - on the outside the Exponent 500 resembles the Darkglass Microtubes amplifier heads, so you would be forgiven that thinking this was the case - it isn't!
  • Power Personified - boasting an easy 500 Watts of power, and capable of delivering more than 115dB of output, the Exponent 500 makes the perfect gigging companion for your favourite bass cabs
  • Uncomplicated And Intuitive - thanks to its intuitive controlset, the Exponent 500 is as sophisticated as you could want it to be. The five Quick Pots are, by default, mapped to the Amp EQ's four frequency bands and a preset-specific control, but each of these can be further altered via your Darkglass Suite app
  • Darkglass Suite - whilst the Exponent 500 is preloaded with five versatile factory presets, so using the Darkglass Suite isn't always necessary… but it opens up so much more for you if you do! With this app - compatible with both iOS and Android devices - you can interact directly with each effect and parameter on the e500 using Bluetooth, for a fully customised sound
