Overton Amps’s engineers are focused on making top tier amplifiers at every level. The Menace series is their foray into the much loved practice amplifier market. They designed the Menace to be rugged and reliable while being aesthetically and sonically superior to comparable amps on the market. Featuring true active equalization, the Menace line is composed of 15W, 30W and 50W versions, fitted with the best speakers in their class. The 15 is equipped with true spring reverb while the 30 and 50 bring footswitchable channels and 16 digital FX as well as digital reverb and delay to the table. The Menace series of amps are driven to inspire.

Because they are players as well as engineers equal attention has been given to Overton’s exciting bass amplifier arsenal. The revolutionary Featherweight series brings unmatched power and functionality into a red anodized, single rackspace head. The Featherweight combines a studio quality compressor, semi parametric equalizer and versatile rear panel in a feather-light Class D powered package. For those seeking an all-in-one gig solution, the Featherweight will be offered in a classic 2×10” configuration as well as a dynamic and articulate 4×8” combo. If more power is what you seek then the two rackspace Featherweight 1500 can deliver with the same versatile front end, this time paired with 1500W of thundering power. A new paradigm in lightweight compact amplifiers will be established with the debut of these class leading amps.

A ground breaking bass cabinet line had to be developed to do the Featherweight series justice and Overton will proudly introduce the OB series at NAMM 2011. Built to withstand the punishment of the road, Overt?n’s Touready cabinets are truly a remarkable value. Three cabinets will be offered initially in both 4? and 8? versions, a 1200W 4×10” and 600W 2×10” equipped with a proprietary crossover and compression tweeter with variable level and a full range 800W 4×8”. All OB series cabinets are equipped with Overton’s custom voiced Undert?n drivers while hours of acoustic design have gone into their construction and porting. The OB series is primed and ready to become a backline mainstay for years to come.

To cover everything from practice sessions to intimate gigs Overton will also be debuting the Tremor series of compact bass combos. The Tremor amps are available in 3 guises beginning with the practice sized Tremor 8. For the player who needs a gig-ready amp the Tremor 10 and Tremor 15 pair an intuitive front end with 100W and 300W of power respectively, generating bold and punchy output from a convenient form factor. Custom proprietary drivers are equipped in all Tremor bass amps. A balanced recording out is supplied on the 15, while a 2 button footswitch is included with the 15 and 10. Auto-compression, headphone outputs and aux inputs are present across the line. The Tremor series truly bridges the gap between entry level and professional grade.
