Enjoy exceptional versatility, harmonic lush and bone-crushing sound with the Darkglass AlphaOmicron. It is made for bassists seeking a preamp to be distinctively heard in various musical contexts. The Blend knob combines processed and clean signals. The Level control sets the volume of the overdriven signal, allowing for fine mix tuning, while the Drive knob adjusts the amount of overdrive gain. The Alpha-Omicron features two discrete distortion circuits—Alpha is punchy, tight with plenty of definition, whereas Omega is merely raw and brutal.

Details: With the double distortion engine (Alpha and Omega), the AlphaOmicron delivers unparalleled versatility, harmonic rich and bone-crushing sound. Designed for bassists in need of a preamplifier to be distinctively heard in any musical context. The Blend control mixes the clean and processed signals. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine mix tuning, and the amount of overdrive gain is controlled by the Drive knob. The Alpha-Omicron offers two distinct distortion circuits: Alpha is punchy, tight with a lot of definition, whereas Omega is simply brutal and raw. With the Bite Switch, you can boost high mids (2.8kHz) for additional presence and definition, and the Growl Switch boosts the bass for a fatter tone and increased low end saturation. The AlphaOmicron has a current draw of 20mA. 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.

    You truly get what you pay for with this one. It’s extremely easy to use, very well built, and it works well on heavy music. You can also use it in other styles.
