The Control Panel

The British voicing of this amp is mid rich and only needs a single tone control to bass/treble balance to taste.  A pull clip switch adds the sound of a top boost channel pushed into distortion.  The line out jack provides a cabinet voiced signal for recording, FOH, or to connect into a larger amp.

Rear Panel

Has a detachable power connection with built in mains fuse, a high frequency presence control, built in speaker load when using this amp without a speaker cabinet, and a speaker jack to be used with any 8 ohm cabinet.
