All lamps already described elsewhere. Bought mine new in 2006 has a lamp rectification 5AR4. The earliest versions were corrected in solid state.


config arch-simple. The pot is only active presence on the bright channel.
Lampli can be used to the former two channels being interactive. Super!
To start sculpting your sound:

enter the normal guitar input on channel 1. bridge with input 2 input 1 channel bright.

Set the channel 1 vol 3-4 (below 2.5 sound is flat). Put all the eq on the environment. To the presence of 3. to channel 2 on the flight 2.5-3.5 (never above the normal channel flight because the sound becomes too aggressive for my taste, low invasive and treble screaming, see below). The bright channel is used to give presence to the normal channel which is fabulous warmth and roundness but a little bland for my taste.

The manual is simplistic, but there is no need.


I play blues-rock and jazz perfect for my style. For sounds, one, see above settings. This gives a round, well-defined hot but not very distinctive Fender lens as the super reverb, plus medium. This amp is for crunch deem beautiful. This is the legend and here's why. To do cruncher must be mounted to 5 min. Crunch and the guy but the bass is invasive even if we fall 3. Treble become super aggressive. The guitar is so completely unbalanced, there are more than medium.
All outdoor way except you do not go past 3-4. and in this area it is perfect. So, as all my amps I go in front of with pedaltone Koch. The best tube preamp for guitar (see my review). And there's the serious fact.


My main amp since 2006. I just separate. It will be to rewire the old by purists who will give him a second life worthy of his ancestor.
