Simple single Tone control
Counter clockwise rotation produces a darker tone. As the control is rotated clockwise, the effect is increased.

Clockwise rotation produces brighter tones.

The tempo frequency increases as

This turns the power amp on.

This turns the power off.

Speaker output jacks = Ω (ohms)
The total speaker ohms load must match the output jack rating
before flipping power switch to UP position. Only 1 output jack
can be connected at a time!
Return Level control adjusts the amplitude of a line level device
(CD player, multi-track recorder, digital preamp, drum machine, etc.)
This level must be set to maximum counter-clockwise position when
effects loop jacks are not used.
Return Jack
An instrument level device (Guitar or Bass) can be plugged into the return jack.
At this time the return level control becomes the volume control for channel 2 and is
in parallel with front panel preamp. (An instrument plugged into front input and a
second instrument plugged into the return jack can be played simultaneously.)

jacks are not used. This is the jack used for stand
alone reverb/vibro function in conjunction with
power switch being set to the down (FX setting).
Send Jack
Plugging all the way in (3 clicks) is a normal line level
effects send. Plugging only 2 clicks in, reverses signal
direction and creates a second return. However, this will
mute front panel Preamp controls.
