Flexible Tone Shaping
In true Darkglass style, the AlphaOmega 500 offers plenty of options to fine tune your sound to suit the style of music you want to play.
For starters, this amp sports a 6-band graphic EQ, alongside a single-knob VCA compressor, allowing you to get the exact bass tones that you want.
And that's before we've taken this extra bit of Darkglass magic into account.
Two Distinct Saturation Circuits
As with the popular AlphaOmega pedal, this amplifier sports the celebrated Alpha and Omega analog drive engines
Each of these engines deliver a deliberate, yet distinctly different sound to the famed Microtubes sound, offering a choice between Punchy, Tight, and Defined (Alpha) or simply Brutal and Raw (Omega).
Also, just like with the pedal, the amp featuers a proprietary Mod control, which allows you to blend between either drive circuit to deliver an array of earth-shattering tones.
