Darkglass Alpha Omega Dual Bass Preamp/Overdrive Pedal

Bass preamp pedal and DI box with overdrive
MFR# AO

Product Description

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

This creation differs greatly from their 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 the Mod knob. This unusual control, in conjunction with the toggle switches and 3 active band equalizer makes Alpha · Omega the most flexible among their designs.

Features

  • 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 (2.8 kHz) 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: ±12 dB @ 8 0Hz
  • Mid: ±12dB @ 500 Hz
  • Treble: ±12 dB @ 5 kHz
  • Parallel Output: Hardwired copy of your input signal, useful for getting a clean signal in recording and live situations
  • Direct Output: A balanced version of the ¼” output, useful for running into PA’s or studio mixing consoles

Please note: The Alpha·Omega has a current draw of 30 mA. 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.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
