Darkglass Alpha Omega Bass Distortion and Overdrive Pedal

Send your bass tone to the gnarliest depths of distortion with the Alpha Omega. Plug this right into your amp, or send your signal to the mixer with the DI.

Besides being an amazing composer, producer and bassist, Jon Stockman is amazing at crafting some of the most devastating bass tones in the world. We got together in our then Helsinki headquarters 18 months ago and after endless tweaking and tens of prototypes we are finally ready to announce our first co-designed creation: Alpha Omega.

This creation differs greatly from our previous preamplifiers and overdrives: it is fully operational amplifier based and has two distinct distortion circuits (Alpha and Omega) which can be selected or blended using our Mod knob. This unusual control, in conjunction with the toggle switches and 3 active band equalizer makes Alpha . Omega the most flexible among our designs.


- Blend: 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.
- Level: Sets the volume of the overdriven signal.
- Drive: Sets the amount of gain in the overdriven signal.
- Bite: Boosts High Mids (2.8kHz) for additional presence and definition.
- Growl: Shelving Bass Boost for a fatter tone and increased low end saturation.
- Mod: Selects or mixes between the two distinct distortion circuits: Alpha is punchy, tight with a lot of definition, whereas Omega is simply brutal and raw.
- Bass: +-12dB @ 80Hz
- Mid: +-12dB @ 500Hz
- Treble: +-12dB @ 5kHz
- Parallel Output: Hardwired copy of your input signal, useful for getting a clean signal in read more recording and live situations
- Direct Output: A balanced version of the 1/4" output, useful for running into PA's or studio mixing consoles.
- Size: 12x10.7 cm (4.72x4.21 in)
- Power requirements: 9v center negative, 30mA current draw

I had never heard of Darkglass before. Every bass player needs a good DI, and even more importantly a good distortion pedal that doesn’t take away the low end. I haven’t got to try out the DI yet live, but boy does this thing know how to make your bass growl! You can get most any tone you want from this thing! The blend option is so important, as to be able to mix in your dry signal to the distorted one, keeps all the low end you want that way! I love this pedal! Finally a manufacturer specifically designed for bass effects!
