Darkglass Exponent 500 Head New Concept E-500


We always craved a clean head. A device that is “out of the box” is an amplifier without added effects. Uncomplicated, intuitive, and for each one of us to be able to unveil the layer of sophistication that better serves our projects and skills. The Exponent 500 is a new concept that once connected turns into a multi-effect, with fully programmable and presettable signal chains with all the components a professional bassist requires.

  • Clean and easy to use amplifier
  • New “Powered Platform” concept allows the amp to be used as a multi-effects unit – signal chains can be saved to presets from a constantly growing DSP database with compressors, distortions, modulations, preamps, impulse responses etc.
