After some thought I've narrowed my choices down to Genzler Magellan 800 or Alpha Omega 900. You might ask yourself "WHAT?" as they're not really in the same category but the 'driven' tones I'd like to get out of AO900 would mostly be with the drive knob under 10-11 o'clock. I've already ordered Genzler Bass Array 12-3 and that's why I'm giving more and more thought about buying the Magellan 800 to match it. I can try the AO900 locally but the cab is gonna be here in a week or two, and I would have to buy Magellan without trying it out. The pros I see about using AO900 is that it already has the Alpha Omega pedal built in and has a compressor, plus a pre and post DI outs and has a multi band EQ which feels like it would give me more versatility. Alpha Omega 900 would give me an option to mostly run just the head and cab and not fiddle with pedalboards. The cons are 'not matching the brands' if it can be called a con, and the fact that I just keep seeing people complaining about Darkglass reliability, for both pedals and amps and I'd like to be playing and not fiddling around with firmware bugs. The pros I see about Magellan is that it matches the cab brand so I feel it would possibly be a lot better match sound wise, more simplistic approach to EQ. Another pro I see is that it would possibly allow me to dial in the baseline clean tone and then just add a Alpha Omega pedal in front which would have it's own EQ section so I can precisely dial in the drive as I want it. I'm not looking for a crazy djent tones, or sharp pick attack stuff, I very much dislike that brittle icepicky fret buzz distortion, which is majority of what the Darkglass demos are, but I do like the drive character that AO has and I've seen demos of it being used in a very nice and musical way. I'm playing fingerstyle, multiple genres and the bass I'm using is Ibanez EHB1505MS. These are the tone references I'd like to be able to match, the Karnivool one is what I'd like to match with Alpha Omega, but the rest I guess can be done with either of them.
