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.

This creation differs greatly from our previous preamplifiers and overdrives: it is fully operational amplifier based and has two distinct distortion circuits (Alpha and Omega) which can be selected or blended using our Mod knob. This unusual control, in conjunction with the toggle switches and 3 active band equilizer makes Alpha · Omega the most flexible among our designs.

Features

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.

Bite

Boosts High Mids (2.8kHz) for additional presence and definition.

Growl

Shelving Bass Boost for a fatter tone and increased low end saturation.

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.

Bass

+-12dB @ 80Hz

Mid

+-12dB @ 500Hz

Treble

+-12dB @ 5kHz

Parallel Output

Hardwired copy of your input signal, useful for getting a clean signal in recording and live situations

Direct Output

A balanced version of the ¼” output, useful for running into PA’s or studio mixing consoles.

DIMENSIONS

12×10.7 cm (4.72×4.21 in)

WARNING

The Alpha·Omega has a current draw of 30mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug. Due to ecological reasons it does not accept batteries. Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.
