D-Tone Amps / Overdrive Specialist 50w Head / 2024 / Black / Amp For Sale

D-TONE Overdrive Specialist - tube guitar head with two independent CLEAN and OVERDRIVE channels.

The amplifier is based on the famous Dumble Overdrive Special amp no. #102 - used by Robben Ford.

The D-TONE AMPS are 100% hand-wired, soldered point-to-point (p2p) on turret board - as amps used to be in the years 1950-70. An amplifier built as P2P has a significant impact on the sound compared to an amp built on a PCB board.

The CLEAN channel has a clear and dynamic sound, like the sounds of the Blackface era amps. The OVERDRIVE channel, made in a cascade construction of the preamp has a soft "creamy" distortion with a lot of harmonics. 

The amplifier has two inputs: NOR and FET. NOR input is a standard input socket with 1M impedance. FET input is supported by a JFET transistor. It has an additional signal boost and is dedicated to electric guitars with a low output signal.
