Fine Handmade Effects


Overcarsten Overdrive

Built like an amp - sounds like an amp!
Design directly evolved from a tube-circuit. Handwired on tagstrips with high quality components and selected FETs. Special circuitry to achive the same dynamic response as a tube guitar-amp. Now with treble boost- and roll-off pot and switchable low-cut.

Highly touch-sensitive overdrive effect. Soft distortion without unpleasant and harsh treble. Natural compression,  just like an amp with tube-rectifier. Character of the effect adjustable with HONEY control.
A special highlight is the overcarsten at settings where it "just breaks up". Here it provides a touch-response and riches of tone otherwise only known from real amps and at significantly higher volumes.

Great also as clean-boost or as distortion for bassguitar.
