Enjoy the ease of replacing your power tubes anytime you like with the very user friendly power tube bias section found on each SL/LD Multi-Gain Preamp. If you like experimenting with different tube types, the bias section allows you to pop-in and bias a new set of tubes in just a few minutes.
Tube 3 Independent Channels
Each channel is equipped with independent Gain, Master Volume and EQ controls:
Channel produces a wide array of crystal clear yet complex clean sounds. When the channel’s Gain control is cranked up, a beautiful bluesy solo sound is possible. Turning the Gain down is more suitable for fingering.
CH-2 LEAD 1
A dynamic overdrive reacts to your picking attack. Crank the gain high and there’s enough saturation for blues styles and old school hard rock. For a brutally heavy metal tone it also gives tons of definition and punch to speed picking and fast palm-muted rhythms. A BRIGHT switch adds glassy tone to your solos while the rhythm becomes more edgy and sharp.
CH-3 LEAD 2
Drive channel – is the highest gain of the two LEAD channels – very dense, aggressive, heavy high-gain tone, so-called California sound. High-gain end is huge. Great for achieving warmest fattest sounds with high density. "Brother" Soldano SLO100 and Mesa Rectifier.
