    For those in the know of OD circuits what do you think about the Ceriatone Overtone with HRM? Would this feature smooth out the overdrive?

    I prefer non HRM. I like the hrm for getting more plexi type tones. For smooting out the od there are better mods I think than the hrm but it has its uses. The hrm alows the amp to be easily tweaked within reason for the players taste. I have not looked at Niks design to see if he has changed values on the platform of the amp or just added the hrm to the same circuit.

    Are they offering an HRM option now?!

    To try and answer your question, I would have to say that it depends on how the circuit is implemented. The 'typical' HRM setup will provide more grind on top and some scoop to the mids.

    Unnecessary IMO. Why do you think you need it?

    Most of the people comparing haven't even played the two next to each other.

    HRM is not a simple add on mod or option for these amps.

    Each represents a completely different amplifier with totally different feel, tone and response.

    They are not the same at all.

    The difference are not subtle.

    The difference inside the amp is way more than adding or subtracting a tone stack.

    Hey Quinnamps....you seem to know something about this subject. Can you explain in layman terns what you would hear with the HRM and the original circuits. It would be a help tremendously to shed light on the subject.

    IMHO Nik was smart to introduce a nonHRM first. They tend to be more forgiving - generally easier for the uninitiated to get toneful results from. For the builders and tweakers, they're easier to dial-in as well.
