[NAMM] 3 New Overtōn Products
Overtōn is welcoming three new products to their stable of bass gear.
The Featherweight Series will add a new member to the family with the Flyweight 500, the TōnLink-DI will mark Overtōn's first foray into outboard gear and the Tremor 10mini is poised to join the Tremor Series of bass combos.
The Flyweight 500 takes the concept of the Flyweight 200 with more power and functionality. The tone and auto-compression of the Overtōn preamp is married to a four-band EQ and Overtōn's Sculpt control, for manipulation of the frequency response curve.
This signal can be sent to the balanced studio direct out, but Overtōn has added a new Twin-Level master volume section. Accessible by footswitch, the concentric master volume control can be set to two levels designed to allow for the accommodation of a style change.
The footswitch functionality has 4 features accessible; mute, Sculpt bypass, compressor bypass and master volume select for on the fly adjustments.
The TōnLink-DI provides Overtōn sound in pedal format. The TōnLink-DI is a full featured preamp. Sporting an auto-compressor, 3 band EQ and individually adjustable gain and level controls, this preamp can be tailored. The TōnLink-DI also has an FX loop to increase its functionality further. In addition the dual footswitches can be preset to trigger different functions within the TōnLink-DI. The left footswitch can be set to either engage the mute or a bypass while the right footswitch can be set to trigger compressor or sculpt bypass modes.
Based on the Tremor 8 platform, the Tremor 10mini features 50W of power, delivered to the Overtōn Special Design 10 loudspeaker. The Tremor 10mini offers a tunable preamp with Overtōn's Sculpt control, 3 bands of EQ (w/ mid-sweep) and Aux-in connectivity, for playing along with audio sources such as MP3 players. The Tremor 10mini can serve as a practice amp for beginners and as a portable amp for musicians on the go.
