Four priceless amps.
One mind-blowing collection.

The ODS Legends Signature Collection for TONEX gives you instant access to 4 priceless Overdrive Special amplifiers. Found behind many of the world’s best players including Robben Ford, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Larry Carlton, David Lindley, John Mayer and more, the Overdrive Special is sadly no longer made today, easily fetching 6 figures when a rare example goes to auction. As a bonus, we’ve also included 2 legendary overdrive pedals known to pair perfectly with these amps to further push your tone in exciting directions.

IK had the exclusive opportunity to capture each of these incredible amps while they passed through a world-famous studio in Nashville, Tennessee, renowned for its superior recording facilities and long history of hosting legendary musicians. All amp and pedal settings were dialed in by tone experts to a variety of sweet spots from clean to overdrive and meticulously captured in between recording sessions.

This Signature Collection of 20 Tone Models recreates the very essence of these vintage treasures and makes them finally accessible to all discerning tone aficionados. Utilizing IK's cutting-edge AI Machine Modeling Technology in conjunction with a sonically perfect environment has produced incredible results that you can own today.

Showcasing an artist’s true talent

The all-tube Overdrive Special was produced in very limited numbers, each one hand-wired and custom-built for a particular artist to suit their playing style and tone requirements. Known for its inspiring harmonic richness in the overdrive channel and transparency in the clean channel, the ODS is extremely versatile and can be used for a variety of genres including blues, rock and jazz, rewarding the player with unmatched headroom and responsiveness.

The 4 Overdrive Specials in this collection are pristine examples and were purchased from their original owners with their original tubes still mounted. Because the circuitry was tailored to suit a specific player, each amp offers a distinct and exciting tone that was captured with multiple settings, letting you find the Tone Models that sound best for your situation. Or enjoy the Rockstar luxury of mid-stacking several ODS Tone Models together in AmpliTube to create your own signature tones.

Two legendary pedals

1981 Ibanez® TS808

The first Tube Screamer®, the TS808, was released in the late ′70s. A brilliant distortion and overdrive box from Ibanez, it has built a reputation that’s led it to pass into musical urban myth. Helped along with Stevie Ray's use, the TS808 is still highly in demand today with vintage units easily trading above $1,000.

Silver Klon® Centaur® overdrive

The legendary Silver Klon Centaur overdrive holds a mystique that’s undeniable as evidenced by the steep prices it fetches on used gear websites. With its unique overdriven tones and boosting capabilities, it’s the ideal boost to your front end or a full-on drive inspiring players from Jeff Beck to John Mayer.
