A Slimmer, Simpler Take on the Alpha Omega
The Darkglass Alpha Omicron was created for the bassist who wants the Alpha Omega's premium analog signal path and dual distortion modes in a smaller pedal format for less money. Clank and djent are this pedal's strong suits. But thanks to a Blend control, players can unlock subtler shades of dirt with ease. Choose or mix between two distinct distortion flavors, tap into added thickness and presence via the Growl and Bite controls, then layer onto your dry bass tone to taste. Like all Darkglass pedals, the Alpha Omicron is proudly handmade in Finland from the finest parts.
Two variable distortion modes
The Alpha Omicron borrows the Alpha Omega's dual-distortion engine to provide virtually limitless shades of bass drive. With the Mod control rotated fully counterclockwise, the Alpha distortion's punchier, tighter fuzz better suits rock and progressive music. On the other end of the spectrum, the Omega's spankier, gnarlier effect is great for soloing and modern forms of metal. Once you find the sound you like, blend to taste with your dry signal using the Level and Blend controls.

I purchased this unit as I couldn't quite afford/justify the cost of the larger versions and have to say I'm very happy with it. Just the thing for heavier tones, or can be dialled back for more subtle crunch. I tried this with my guitars too, just out of curiosity to compare with my Boss pedal and it just sounds immense. The bigger versions obviously offer a lot more sculpting, but if you have the ability to do that either with a footswitch or on your bass itself then you can definitely find the tone that works with this smaller version for a smaller price. This is the first piece of Darkglass gear I have purchased and I am an instant fan.
