In keeping with its theme of stompboxes inspired by figures from the Italian art history, Dophix has launched the new Dante Overdrive.
The Dante Overdrive sports a TS-style control arrangement of gain, volume, and tone. That allows for utilization as a mild dirty boost or tones approaching full-on distortion. The unit comes with side-mounted jacks and leverages handpicked components.
“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,” Dophix detailed.
The Dante Overdrive is housed in an enclosure that features minimalist artwork based on a portrait of Dante Alighieri. Other historical-figure-inspired Dophix stompboxes draw inspiration from Michelangelo, Bartolomeo Ammannati, and Leonardo Da Vinci.
Besides the info about the unit, Dophix also includes the following quote attached to the Italian literary figure: “Non può comprendere la passione chi non l’ha provata,” which means “those who have not experienced it, cannot understand passion.”
Top-grade components, carbon resistors, and true bypass switch are also on offer in the Dante Overdrive.
The Dante Overdrive is already available for $199. Check out Dophix for more details.
