Overdrive Special

These amps are known for their fat and harmonically rich clean tone, and a complex, smooth/aggressive overdrive tone with a nice mid range push. The sustain on these amps is amazing! This amp is very articulate, and has amazing sustain!

This amp comes in 100 watt, 50 watt 20 watt models.

I have been fine tuning these amps for the past 8 years using various quality components and transformers and am happy to say we got it dialed in perfect for the most amazing overdrive sound! The overdrive is well defined and not muddy! It’s touch sensitive, you can feel the notes change as you dig in with your guitar! The cleans are also not sterile, they are rich and lush!

This Overdrive Special amp resembles the 80s style Dumble played by musicians such as Robben Ford and Larry Carlton. These are 2 channel amps with cascading gain stages and separate volume controls for each channel.

These amps are known for their fat and harmonically rich clean tone, and a complex, smooth/aggressive overdrive tone with a nice mid range push.

All these amps are hand wired and circuit board free.

The Master volume is so effective that these amps can produce the most amazing overdriven tone from bedroom level volume to blazing stage levels!

This amp comes in 100 watt, 50 watt 20 watt models. The front switches control Bright , Mid Boost and Rock/Jazz.

A two button pedal is included to engage the Overdrive channel and Preamp Boost. There are also two switches in back to manually control these 2 features.

    Overdrive Special 20 watt combo tweed

    I was in the market for a boutique hand-wired amp. Knowing what the large brands had on the market, I just couldn’t find what I was looking for. I found Guy online and after checking out his products, knew he’d be the guy to build exactly what I was looking for. I sent him a few emails outlining my thoughts, and he cheerfully took on my project.

    He delivered an absolutely amazing product. His craftsmanship is beyond stellar, and I challenge anyone to compare against any of the big brands – you won’t be disappointed. Guy kept in constant communication, provided updates, pictures, and was always receptive to my questions.

    If you take nothing else from this review, know that you will not be disappointed having Guy build you an amp. He took the vision I had in my mind and created exactly what I was looking for. It looks fantastic, oozes tone for days, and is locally built from scratch. That right there is the trifecta you can’t get buying from one of the big brands.

    Thank you, Guy.

    Overdrive Special 20 watt combo Black Alligator.

    I needed an amp I could enjoy at home/condo and also take to local gigs. This amp accomplished that. I absolutely love this amp! This amp sounds fantastic. The amp is more articulate then any of my other amps! I am dialing in tones easier than ever before. My effects sound great with the built in effects loop! This is easily my favorite amp. The overdrive is outstanding , better than any overdrive pedal I have owned and I have had a lot of them! Their are so many different levels of overdrive with the separate vol and drive knob that I can adjust it to my preference!
