High Gain Input (1):
Used for most electric guitars. It is 6 dB louder than the Low Gain input.
Low Gain Input (2):
Provided for instruments that have extremely high outputs, which can result in overdriving (distorting) the High Gain
input. If both inputs are used simultaneously, the output levels are the same (both are Low Gain).
Level (3):
Controls the volume level of the normal channel and is not affected by the SuperSat or Post Gain controls.
Chorus Select Switch (4): В N
Is used to activate/defeat the chorus circuit. To activate the circuit, depress the switch to its “in” position
Operation Note:
Chorus activation may also be accomplished by the optional remote footswitch. If remote selection 15 desired, the
chorus select switch must be in the “in” (activated) position.
Channel Select Switch (5):
Allows selection of the lead or normal channel. The “in” position of the switch selects the lead channel and the “out
position selects normal.
NOTE: Channel selection may also be accomplished by the remote footswitch. If remote selection is desired the
channel switch must be in the “in” (lead) position.
SUPERSATO (6)
(Built Uner U.S. Patent 44,811,401)
A transistor simulation of tube distortion (soft clipping). To activate the SuperSat® effect, lead channel must be activated.
Post Gain (7):
Controls the overall volume level of the lead channel. The final level adjustment should be made afterthe desired sound
has been achieved.
Low, Mid, & High EQ (8):
Passive tone controls that regulate the low, mid and high frequencies, respectively.
Rate/Depth Control (9):
Simultaneously controls the sweep raie (frequency) and depth (intensity) of the chorus effect. Rotating clockwise
increases the rate and decreases the depth of the chorus effect,
Stereo Headphone Jack (10):
Provided for use with any stereo headset. One channel of the headphones will deliver signals processed by the chorus
circuit. The other side will deliver only “dry” (unprocessed) signals. Use of a monaural headset is not recommended.
Power LED (11):
lluminates when AC power is being supplied to the amp.

Power Switch (12): о В | ;
Depress the switch to the “On” position. The red pilot light (LED) will illuminate indicating power is being supplied to
the unit.
Preamp Out (13): Ш
The preamp output can be used to route the amplified signal to a mixing console, tape recorder, etc. Connect the
preamp output, using a shielded cable, to an input of the tape recorder, mixer, etc. This patch does not affect the
operation of the amplifier
Operation Note: |
If only one preamp out jack is used, the output is a monaural (mixed) chorus output. If both preamp out jacks are used,
the outputs are stereo chorus outputs.
Remote Switch Jack (14): I
Provided for the connection of the optional remote footswitch. Footswitch is used to select the lead or normal channels
and activate/defeat chorus. When using remote footswitch, always insert the plug fully (second click) to insure proper
operation.
External Speaker Jacks (15):
Provided for connection of external speakers. Minimum impedance is 8 ohms per channel.
Line Cord (120V products only) (16): | | N ; ;
For your safety, we have incorporated a 3-wire line (mains) cable with proper grounding facilities. It is not advisable
to remove the ground pin under any circumstances. If itis necessary to use the equipment without proper grounding
facilities, suitable grounding adaptors should be used. Less noise and greatly reduced shock hazard exists when the
unit is operated with the proper grounded receptacles.
