The versatile Alpha Omega features two distinct distortion circuits to provide bassists the capability of controlling their own tone. Plus there is a Mod knob to blend or select which distortion mixed with the clean signal. In addition, Darkglass added a 3-band active EQ for absolute control.
Darkglass Alpha Omega Bass Distortion and Overdrive Features

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.
