  • Full tone stack with bypass switch for more raw tone
  • Tube driven reverb
  • Long-tail PI for good drive and headroom
  • Push-pull class AB1 6v6 output, fixed bias
  • Switchable to cathode bias for more of a tweedy growl
  • Switchable 5u4/solid state rectifier.
  • Possible add-ons, depending on demand: Tube tremolo and tube driven effects loop
