Darkglass Electronics introduces the Alpha-Omicron distortion pedal

The new pedal features the new double distortion engine to deliver the same harmonically rich, varied textures as its bigger brother – the Alpha-Omega.

Darkglass Electronics has announced the launch of its brand new dual-voiced distortion pedal called the Alpha-Omicron.

The new pedal is available in the UK now from Audio Distribution Group.

“Since the Alpha-Omega pedal was launched at NAMM 2017 and with its distinct design, co-developed with Jon Stockman from Australian rock band Karnivool, the pedal’s unparalleled versatility and shear display of brutality has relentlessly carved a path to becoming a new standard for bass players in need of a pre-amplifier to be apologetically heard in any musical context,” said the makers.

“However, even with the Alpha-Omega’s popularity and momentum, Darkglass decided it was time for an uncompromising option for those in search of the same bone-crushing sound and flexibility, but in a smaller, more affordable format.”

The result is the brand new Alpha-Omicron, featuring the new double distortion engine (Alpha and Omega) to deliver the same harmonically rich, varied textures that its bigger brother can, but all at a fraction of the size and cost for those who don’t need Alpha-Omega's built in DI and active EQ sections.

The pedal’s main controls are:
– 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.
– 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.
– Bite Switch: Boosts High Mids (2.8kHz) for additional presence and definition.
– Growl Switch: Shelving Bass Boost for a fatter tone and increased low-end saturation.

The Darkglass Electronics Alpha-Omicron pedal has a UK ERP of £245 and is available now.
