Overtōn To Debut New Amp, Combo, DI at NAMM

Overtōn Amplification will be debuting a few new pieces of gear at the upcoming NAMM Show, including the Flyweight 500 amp, the Tremor 10mini combo, and the TōnLink-DI, which will be the company’s first foray into outboard gear.

Overtōn Flyweight 500

Overtōn Flyweight 500The Flyweight 500 builds on Overtōn’s Flyweight 200 and pumps up the power to 500 watts at 4 ohms. While it shares many traits like auto-compression with a bypass, the brand’s sculpt control, and a balanced direct out with level and lift, the sub-compact 500 also adds more functionality. The 4-band EQ has both low and high-mid controls in addition to bass and treble knobs. They also included their new Twin-Level master volume section, which is accessible by footswitch. Essentially, the master volume can be set at two levels to accommodate style changes and lead boosts. The footswitch also gives access to mute, the Sculpt bypass, and the compressor bypass. The Flyweight 500 will have a MAP of $349.99.
