Dophix Presents the Dante Overdrive

The Italian company's latest is a three-knob distortion that focuses on the lower end of the gain scale.

Florence, Italy (April 13, 2020) -- Dophix presents the Dante Overdrive. A very dynamic overdrive with three controls: volume, tone, and gain. The effect allows a complete sound selection from clean to crunch up to a soft distortion. The sound produced is conferred with a typical character, thanks to a full-level control and tone modulation. It also includes an input/output jack from 6.3 mm 1/4“ placed sideways to the pedal, true bypass switch, carbon resistors, and high quality components are one of the specific choices made for the standard of our pedals.

It uses a 9 volt power supply DC through an internal battery or external stabilized power supply. Battery replacement is possible by removing the four screws on the bottom cover. Input impedance 1 Mohm, output 300 ohm. Current with LED on 19ma, standby 500 UA

Dante is available for $199.00

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
