Bass Preamp Pedal and DI Box with Overdrive


The Alpha Omega bass pedal from Darkglass Electronics is so much more than an excellent DI. It’s also a pedal-sized preamp and a savage-sounding distortion effect. The Alpha Omega was codesigned with Karnivool bassist Jon Stockman and combines a dynamic saturation circuit with a 3-band EQ and balanced line driver. Level, Drive, and Blend knobs dial in and fine-tune your clean and overdriven signals. Growl and Bite switches increase or decrease the Alpha Omega’s low- and high-frequency saturation. And dual outputs make parallel processing and running your signal to a PA or mixing console a piece of cake.

Codesigned with Jon Stockman

Karnivool bassist and all-around sonic adventurer Jon Stockman got together with the engineers at Darkglass Electronics to create the Alpha Omega. Because Stockman regularly goes from thick lows for filling out the bottom to grinding, effected tones that jump out front, he knew that he needed a pedal that would deliver any shade of low-end grit he may need at a moment’s notice. So while the Alpha Omega can definitely nail cutting, overdriven bass tones to the wall, it is equally at home as a clean, tone-shaping preamp. As Darkglass puts it, “Alpha Omega is the most flexible among our designs.”

Powerful set of controls

The secret to Alpha Omega’s encompassing personality is its bevy of tone-shaping controls. The Level, Drive, and 3-band EQ are easy enough to figure out. But the real fun comes when you start manipulating the Growl and Bite switches, the Mod knob, and the all-powerful Blend control. The Growl and Bite switches affect the low- and high-frequency saturation of your signal, placing your tone’s teeth right where you want it. The Mod knob is a variable way to select between punchy and tight tone or an all-out raw sound. And you can always blend in your original signal to taste.

Effortlessly integrates into your rig

Whether you’re a fan of vintage gear, prefer to go straight to the console, or have a complicated rig that would put your guitarist to shame, Darkglass Electronics’s Alpha Omega boasts the I/O to make it happen. At its most streamlined, you can run an instrument cable from the 1/4-inch to your amp and take advantage of the pedal’s tone shaping. The XLR output makes Alpha Omega a brilliant DI box. And the onboard parallel output lets you send an unaffected tone to one source, and your affected sound to another. Sweetwater bassists are clamoring to add this pedal to their setups right away.
