Gain control of your tone with a preamp
The talented, all-around musician Jon Stockman (bassist for Karnivool and Floating Me) creates some incredibly hard-hitting metal bass sounds. The Alpha Omega DI/Preamp is the result of a cooperative effort between Jon and Darkglass.
Two unique circuits for distortion (dubbed Alpha and Omega for the separate circuits) give this preamp additional voicings that set it apart from other distortion pedals on the market. These two circuits can be used independently or mixed with each other. Beyond that, this exceptional unit has full-out preamp controls allowing a player to dial in their tone further. This pedal is a versatility king amongst distortion effect pedals.
Listen to the clip below and hear how great Jon’s bass tone sits in the mix with the guitars. It retains a distinct voice, while cutting through heavy guitar distortion, and simply...fits.
