HRM eq mod
HRM eq Sound Clips
The HRM eq mod is a three band post overdrive EQ inspired by the later models of the most sought after boutique amplifier. Designed to work exclusively with the Ethos OD channel, the HRM eq extensively expands the tonal pallet of the Ethos.
- When used in conjunction with the Ethos pre-overdrive tone stack, the Ethos can produce a wide range of tones covering: jazz, blues, country, rock, and metal genres.
- Unlike other implementations, the Ethos HRM eq is fully accessible, allowing easy real time adjustment.
- The Ethos speaker simulator has been redesigned to capture the low frequency response of the HRM eq to provide a full rich tone.
- HRM Bypass Toggle Switch Option: Bypasses the HRM eq, and leaves the enhanced low end speaker simulator redesign in place. The mini switch is located on the side of the unit, next to the input jack.

Active FX Loop mod
The FX Loop Mod was developed after great customer demand to locate an Effects Loop within the preamp section of the Ethos Amp. It now can be installed in the Ethos Amp or Ethos Overdrive Preamp. Located to the left of the HRM eq mod.
Locating the FX Loop in the preamp section allows your effects to be heard via the normal and speak sim outputs, as well as the speaker out.
This configuration can be very useful when running a feed from the speak sim to the PA/board while listening via the amp's local speaker.
The Effects Loop is within the Ethos, so when you bypass the unit, the effects will be bypassed as well.
Loop Type: Serial
Input Impedance: 1 Megohm
Output Impedance: 1 kohm
Jack Location: Amp= front side/footswitch side
Jack Location: Preamp=back side of the Ethos

Power Amp Spec Sheet (original version)Ethos_Power_Amp_Spec_Sheet.pdf
"The Power Amp is Amazing! You certainly did your homework on that. I power a 112 cab with an EVM12L and still can't get over how great my tone is at any volume. The dynamics and touch sensitivity seem to be even more apparent than any of the other methods I have used in the past using various power amps both tube and solid state..." Dan Lear
"...Wanted to tell you how elated I am with the Ethos Overdrive Amp! I received it 10 mins before my rehearsal last night. I brought it even though I knew I really didn't have time to futz with it...but on a whim I just plugged it in to see how it went...
The entire band just turned around with a collective
'HOLY CRAP! :) you're really getting THAT out of THAT LITTLE THING?!' 'Hah! YEP!'
...Can't get enough! So versatile, warm, punchy, mean, smooth...
I have been thinking of getting a Dxmble Amp Clone (buddy has one and I love it)...but now thinking I don't need it! Besides saving me about $3000,
my back is going to be very happy!
I play in a band here called Yacht Rock Schooner, doing all the smooth 70's hits. Thanks for making guitar fun again!" Shannon Pengelly
"Now that my system is complete, my tube amp aficionado friends (tube snobs...) are baffled.
There is an Ethos Preamp on my pedal board with additional overdrive pedals placed before and time-based effects after. That signal gets sent off stage thru a Radial SGI to an Ethos Overdrive Amp set clean and juicy, driving a 2x12 cabinet. When drummers go out of their way to ask how in the wide world I'm getting that sound, you know you
got it goin' on. To me, THIS is the product that revolutionized guitar tone." Jeff B.
"Really loving the Amp. Been playing gigs with no tubes, first time in 30+ years of gigging, never thought this would happen."
Jim Mencotti, Band: Jam-Art. see links pg.
"Thanks a million for the Ethos Amp, I am loving the tone and sensibility on the touch!!!!!!! I'm still in the dilemma of making up my mind on my final setting cause I get inspiring tones in so many different ones!!!! WOW I'm really ecstatic with it and can't wait to start gigging with it..."
Joe Volante, UK
"I can't thank you enough for your great customer service and the best guitar pedal/Amp I've ever heard." Bill Jung,
"I received my Ethos Amp, thank you very much
for designing this piece of jewelry, it sounds fabulous..." Francois Carpentier, France
"I played through the Ethos in a live concert tonight. I can say Amazing, Amazing, Amazing :-) No difference from
a tube amp. Thanks for the beautiful little amp."
Daniel Pattis, Switerland
"...I'm even more impressed with the tone
than I thought. I thought I would use it with
a small pedalboard at home and small gigs/quiet rehearsals.
I plugged it with a big board that I use with
a quite loud rock band and I was surprised how loud it was. My pedalboard (bunch of drive pedals and Line6 M13) sounded actually way better than it sounds through my other Dxmble inspired amps.
I've been drawn to Dxmble tone and mystique since 1986 or so and spend some serious money to chase *that* kind of tone (some amps and many many pedals) and while I've been more than happy with my Ethos Preamp version, the Amp version is something I would never have dreamed would work so perfectly!"
