Product Description

The Ultraphonix MKII delivers authentic D-style overdrive tones at a fraction of the cost and size of the elusive Dumble ODS. Having been voiced alongside 4 genuine Dumble Overdrive Special amplifiers, the Ultraphonix MKII captures the X-factor that makes the ODS one of the most sought-out amplifiers in existence.

Turn Your Amp Into a D-Style Amp:
The Ultraphonix Special Overdrive MKII delivers the blooming midrange and screaming overdrive of the ultra-rare American boutique amplifiers that players have been coveting for decades. This overdrive emulates the the expansive midrange and strident cascading gain stages of the D*lightful amplifier this pedal is based on. When you turn it on, it will unleash your guitar's full-throated potential with an articulate attack and smooth sustain that's reminiscent of players like Robben Ford and Larry Carlton. If you're a tone chaser, the Ultraphonix MKII Specialized Overdrive pedal will help you achieve the D-style tone you've been dreaming of that doesn’t require a mortgage to purchase!

Based on "Real Deal" Dumble ODS Amps!:
The R&D for the Ultraphonix pedal took over four (4) years, and almost a half-dozen Dumble amplifiers! From 2012 to 2016, we got ahold of five (5) Dumble Overdrive Special (ODS) amplifiers to most accurately voice the Ultraphonix pedal, comparing to "real deal" Dumble amplifiers - many of these amps were owned and/or used by world famoud Dumble users. Knowing that these Dumble amps were customized to the player, our goal was to find the "X Factor" among a variety of Dumble ODS amps and distill the "D-Style" essence into the most authentic sounding and feeling "amp in a box" pedal - and we NAILED IT!

Ultimate Control of Your Overdrive Tone:
Ultraphonix Special Overdrive MKII delivers the blooming midrange and screaming overdrive of the ultra-rare American boutique amplifiers that players have been coveting for decades. This overdrive emulates the the expansive midrange and strident cascading gain stages of the D*lightful amplifier this pedal is based on. When you turn it on, it will unleash your guitar's full-throated potential with an articulate attack and smooth sustain that's reminiscent of players like Robben Ford and Larry Carlton. If you're a tone chaser, the Ultraphonix MKII Specialized Overdrive pedal will help you achieve the D-style tone you've been dreaming of that doesn’t require a mortgage to purchase!

Versatile Controls to Shape Your Tone:
To help you create your ultimate tone, the Ultraphonix has extra gain-shaping controls beyond the original MKI version with Master Volume, Input Gain "Level", and Distortion/Saturation "Ratio". Players can fine tune their pickup outputs with the input gain "LEVEL" control to get the same reaction from the overdrive irrespective of using Single Coil or Humbucking pickups with up to 8dB of level compensation available. Plus, get additional presence and harmonic saturation using the "FILTER" knob for sculpting the upper-mids from 800Hz to 1.6kHz. Once you get the perfect mix of overdrive and EQ, use the "MASTER" volume control to set your final output level. No matter where you set it, this pedal will sound "wide-open" and "amp-like" at all volume levels.
