Simple & Effective Adjustments

UTILIZATION

Three simple knobs + deep, already presented.
Hey drapeau_rouge the famous switch in the top left is quite usable: Just open the beast. This feature enables a very useful bass boost, enough to settle, there is a swith to select the frequency (87Hz/115Hz), and a potentiometer for adjusting the gain applied at this frequency, 0 to +12 dB (I seems). Default frequency is 87Hz, and 12dB gain, thus effectively without changing its settings, the sound is dégeu. But by tweaking one can get a killer sound while retaining parafaitement the bottom of the spectrum.


SOUND QUALITY

Very good, very heavy distortion, but sounds very natural (dirty <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" /> But natural)
My settings: fuzz to 3 / 4 (remember that the feedback, noise gate recommended), Tone 3 / 4 at max volume it depends.
After adjustment for the bass boost (I activate all the time): 115Hz, 4 to 6 dB
This gives a very nice distortion, no loss in the lower spectrum, nickel, what ...

OVERALL OPINION
