GAIN CONTROL (PLUS OVERDRIVE SWITCH)
The GAIN control adjusts the preamp instrument level and also the amount of overdrive. When the Clean Channel is selected, low to medium settings will deliver a clean sound and as the Gain is increased clockwise the sound will gradually become more overdriven. When the Overdrive channel is selected (OD switch) there will be moderate overdrive at all Gain settings, which again increases as the control is turned clockwise.
The EQ control allows the user to adjust the depth of the EQ curve for preferred tonal response. Fully anti-clockwise is relatively flat with a slight mid-range boost, whereas fully clockwise develops a formed mid response with a cut at around 400Hz.
The COMP. control adjusts the compression ratio of the in-built compressor. With the control fully anti-clockwise the ratio will be 1:1, therefore effectively off. As the control is turned further clockwise then the compression ratio is gradually increased, depending on the signal level present.
The SUB control sets the level of a harmonic generator. This produces an additional low frequency tone that is mixed in with the normal signal. It gives the perception of increased low-end girth.
