WHY AN OVERDRIVE REVERB?
The Welagen Overdrive Reverb incorporates both lush tube reverb and a layer of processing into the Overdrive Special platform. The result is just spectacular; sweet singing leads wrapped in spacious reverb. It has both Clean and Overdrive channels, excellent projection and tonal balance. The EQ controls and switches give you a variety of tones.
If you are looking for the ultimate lead reverb amplifier, then this is it! The Welagen Overdrive Reverb amplifier comes in 3 different sounding versions: 70s, 80s and HRM, and is available in Head or Combo version.
ULTIMATE TONAL CONTROL
The Welagen Overdrive Reverb has two channels. The Clean channel features Normal and FET inputs, Volume, Treble, Middle and Bass, as well as the following switches: Bright switch (for bell-like highs), Deep switch, and Rock/Jazz switch (to select between two EQs). The Overdrive channel features Drive and Level controls, which together with the Clean channel settings allow you to create a variety of tones.
FULL TUBE REVERB
Lush 3-dimensional tube Reverb with maximum tonal control: the Send and Return Levels can be used to shape the response, length and depth of the Reverb.
BOOST AND CHANNEL SWITCHING
Pre-Amp Boost (PAB) can be accessed through a footswitch. This feature compliments the Overdrive Channel but can also be used without the Overdrive engaged. Both Channel switching and PAB switching are also accessible via a foot switch.
Passive effects loop allows for the use of outboard effects.
Compatibility with speaker cabinets is maximized via the Impedance select, and 100/50W select switches. The half power switch functions as a 25/50W select switch if 4x 6V6-GC is used instead of 6L6-GC or 6CA7/EL34.
Be able to create lush reverberated clean and overdrive tones like the ones you hear in music from Lowell George and Jackson Browne. The Welagen 70s Overdrive Reverb is rooted in the Fender blackface and tweed tones with low gain overdrive and is incredibly dynamic and forward sounding.
If you want to go old school style, the Welagen 70s Overdrive Reverb is your amp.
“It’s like your tone is swimming in a beautiful shimmering glow… by far the most usable reverb I’ve ever experienced.”
Get lush harmonically rich Clean and Overdrive tones and create tones like you hear in music from Robben Ford, 80s Larry Carlton, and Santana. The Welagen 80s Overdrive Reverb will provide you with tones ranging from Cleans with percussive crystal clear tones to a wonderful touch sensitive lyrical Overdrive and compression, wrapped in spacious reverb.
“The gain channel takes off where the clean leaves off… very open and natural. Your guitar sounds like it should; a Strat sounds like a Strat, a Les Paul like a Les Paul etc.”
The Welagen HRM Overdrive Reverb is the newest version of this series. It combines modern voiced Overdrive with superior articulation, and ultra-quick response with lush reverb. With harmonically rich cleans, and a mid scooped Overdrive processor -that has internal controls for Treble, Middle and Bass content- this latest version of the Overdrive Reverb will allow you to personally fine tune the Overdrive channel in a ‘set and forget’ fashion to get glorious lead tones.
