Super Apricot OD
The newest of Björn’s “Amp-in-a-Box” circuits, Super Apricot OD is designed to produce the rustic, raw, gnarly tones of a classic Supro tube amp, with surprising amount of dynamic control.
In comparing Super Apricot OD to another of his well-known circuits, the Honey Bee OD, Bjorn says, “Super Apricot is more of a ‘slightly after’ amp sound than Honey Bee OD. Though they share a point of inspiration, the circuits are entirely unique. Honey Bee OD is a true overdrive effect. Super Apricot OD delivers more of a natural amp sound. The tone is saturated, without feeling overly compressed.”
Gain is easily controlled via the DRIVE control, and the guitar’s volume control and picking intensity can be used to clean up the tone. There is an underlying feeling of saturation even in cleaner tones; it becomes more of a “hot clean”. Tone can also be strongly distorted by increasing the DRIVE and picking strongly. However, even at heavier distortion, it maintains a resolution more like a clean tone.
