Here’s what Darkglass say:
Back in 2016, Darkglass Electronics released our first bass amplifier, the Microtubes 900. An uncompromising model, incredibly versatile and unapologetically loud, its features and design embodied the Darkglass ethos like none of the brand’s previous products. Now with the success of our award winning Alpha Omega line of drive pedals, Darkglass are proud to introduce the next step in our bass amplification evolution, Alpha Omega 900.

Alpha Omega 900 takes Darkglass’ latest and celebrated drive circuits to a new dimension. With a deliberate, yet distinctively different flavour to our famous Microtubes circuits, Alpha is punchy and tight with a lot of definition, whereas Omega is simply brutal and raw. With our proprietary Mod control to blend between either drive circuits, Alpha Omega 900 is a monstrous 900-watt amplifier that provides earth-shattering tone.
These modern drive engines add incredible girth and size to the overdriven signal, but the studio-grade VCA compressor also adds an extra layer of control. Add in the ultra-quiet 6-band graphic equalizer and you have an amplifier that can help sculpt your tone from ultra-aggressive and overdriven, to crystal clear clean. Whatever your tone needs may be, Alpha Omega 900 features all the options the modern, professional bassist needs in a compact, sleek and powerful format.
However, that’s not all. The MIDI programmability and impulse response cabinet simulation, with up to three different storable virtual cabinets, make the Microtubes 900 v2 not only most complete amplifier for the touring musician, but combined with the auxiliary input and headphone output, the ideal tools for silent practicing too.
