When people talk about “holy grail” guitar tones, there are names that inevitably come to mind for most guitarists. Brilliant players like Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Angus and Malcolm Young, Eddie Van Halen, James Hetfield, and John Mayer have changed music as we know it not only with their undeniable skills as writers and players, but also with sonic signature.
One of such brilliant players is Robben Ford.
While we have no affiliation with any of these players, their influence in our work can be seen to those attentive.
The Overtone Special FM 50 is a clone of the amplifier largely responsible for Mr. Ford’s amazing tone. Compared to other Overtone amps, this is undoubtedly the most alive. Playing through it is like playing another instrument, with it frequently going into harmonic overtones (even on the clean channel). The midrange in this amplifier is incredibly fat and juicy, even when compared to our other OTS models.
Everything comes as a balance, and we want the player to be forewarned that this is a particularly bright amplifier. In order to help manage, we recommend pairing it with a C-lator or Klein-ulator.
As with all Ceriatone amplifiers, we’ve obsessed over component selection, and it uses our specially designed, custom transformers for superior reliability, frequency response, and feel.
