Amazingly versatile high gain amplifer head from Alan at Carol Ann amps.
What you instantly notice when you play through any of Alans amps, is just the amazing harmonic content, even under the highest gain settings, the note seperation is just jaw dropping
"Welcome to ultra versatile low power pure tone heaven !!
The OD3r amplifiers offer a superb extremely low noise three channel all-tube 18W/30W amplifier design specifically engineered for recording, home and small stage applications. Like all our other models this amplifier is hand built using a no compromise approach.
Like the larger OD-3, these amplifiers are one of the most sonically versatile available on the market today and are happy producing every possible style of music from Country to Metal !! The clean channel features the warmest tones available with a beautiful percussive attack. The Overdrive Channels are simply incredible with a harmonic balance that gives the amplifier a three dimensional feel, rarely experienced with any standard design. On Channel B the amount of overdrive is variable from very slight breakup to a heavy rocking rhythm tone. Channel C takes over where Channel B leaves off from a heavy crunch to all out sweetly compressed high gain tone. Note separation and response remain true throughout the full range of gain settings. To add even more versatility the addition of a footswitchable 'Lead Master' allows the player to select a different volume control for lead levels. This Lead Master works on either Overdrive Channel. The OD3r is cathode biased and requires no bias adjustments when changing tubes. There is a switch between the power tubes that switches the power stage between 6L6GC and 6V6 power tube operation."View Full Specs
