Hey guys...you're probably not going to believe this....but I went back and watched the clip that I posted again, and realized that particular clip was my Peavey classic 30 head. I was comparing the 2 side by side and recorded several clips....my favorite ones were the overtone run clean with the reverend drivetrain pedal, and straight into the Peavey Head on the drive channel.   I'm going to work some more this week and post more clips.  I'm having computer problems, and my computer keeps freezing when I try to record into pro tools, so my only way to get the clips up is to play the backing tracks through my powered monitors and set my cheap kodak digi camera in between the monitors and my amp to try to get a decent mix.  The mic on the camera is crappy, but you can still hear how the amp sounds (and how rusty my playing is)

Once again, I'm glad to be working through this stuff with you guys in this forum.  Thanks for everything!

I TOTALLY agree with you...SPM has absolutely nailed the tone I want from the amp...
I haven't been able to get his settings... I have tried rolling all the treble off...as i usually don't play with very much anyway, and have played with the mids when the OD is engaged, but it seems as if the tone controls do almost nothing when using the OD...

so, I'm thinking it has to do with getting the ratio and overdrive set right and the internal trimmer set right.

SPM?  are you around?Huh??

HELP!!!!


What speakers /pickups you use?
OD trimmer setting now ?

Try make some clip with setting like this ...

Vol = 4 or 5, Bright = off, Deep = ON, Jazz/Rock = Rock, Treble = 4, Middle = 6, Bass= 6, Level= 5, Ratio= 4, Master= 3-4 , Presence= 3

Man...i'm very excited for you guys...You realize, that we fully expect some sound clips from you immediately.  It can't be left up to me and Marin.  If I post any more clips, Nik won't sell any more amps  Grin

Nik is a busy guy because of those clips Grin  The order list for the Overtone must be getting longer...I'm glad I ordered when I did.
Thanks ya'll for the awesome clips...I must've listened to them a gazillion times.   
I can almost smell the freshly glued tolex of my OT...it's that close Grin

I have my OT Grin...and it sounds killer!!!  Yup...I'm one lucky bastard Grin  It's going to be a long honeymoon!!!
The only bummer part...was the match set of NOS GE 6L6's weren't matched.  I picked up a matched set of Groove Tubes GT6L6B from the local guitar shop.  They do sound pretty good!!!  I also ended up using a set of Amperex 12ax7's...sounded a lil sweeter Grin
Anyways...I gotta run.  I have a Overtone waiting to be played with Chair Dance

Me too,
This is very sweet. A buddy of mine came over who is familiar with these amps and gave me an eq lesson. Right now I have no od on and the jazz on, I think bright and deep are off, I get mixed up because I am going to make a cab and right now it sits upside down. Unlike you guys I am running GT el34ls's that I cannot get close to even bias and it still sounds good, I know I just got it but I have never had an amp like this and it is so inspiring. I am not yet a proficient guitar player and but this amp makes me play better, or my bad playing sounds better. Cool :Smiley
Have fun in Hawaii Chair Dance Grin

I wanted to add that I am using a Lansing Altec 417 8c speaker in a generic open back (wide open) cab and it is the perfect match-wow!

Hope you are having as much fun way out there to the west of me poipounder.
