DRIVE: The DRIVE control behaves like the volume knob on a vintage non-master-volume guitar amplifier. Set anticlockwise for clean sounds, or turn it up for more overdrive.
TONE: Turn the TONE knob clockwise for a brighter sound. Turn anticlockwise to tame highs. At lower DRIVE settings, the TONE knob will boost high frequencies above 12 o’clock and cut highs below 12 o’clock. With DRIVE pushed past 12 o’clock, the TONE control progressively loses the ability to boost until, with DRIVE at maximum, it’s essentially a high cut control.
OUTPUT: The output control sets the pedal’s overall output level. This control comes after the pedal’s simulated valve amp circuitry, meaning that you can adjust output level without affecting the tone or character of the overdrive.
SPEED: Turn clockwise to increase the rate of the tremolo effect. The range of the SPEED control is set by the three-position MULTI switch.
INTENSITY: The INTENSITY knob controls the depth of the tremolo – in other words, how much the tremolo will vary the amplitude of the signal. Turn clockwise to increase the depth of the effect.
MULTI: The MULTI switch multiplies the tremolo speed set by the SPEED knob (x1, x2 or x3). This is particularly useful when using an external tap tempo footswitch, letting you set tremolo speeds much faster than your foot can tap.
SHAPE: The SHAPE switch allows you to choose between two different LFO waveforms - SINE WAVE (the classic bias tremolo sound) or FULL WAVE (an asymmetrical waveform with a ‘choppier’ feel – useful at slower speeds or when playing with more overdriven sounds)
POST-DRIVE EQ: This proprietary filter ensures compatibility with a wide range of amplifiers. Instead of altering your amp or its tone controls to suit the Deluxe61, set your amp for the desired clean sound then use the Post-Drive EQ controls to tailor the pedal’s output accordingly. Use with bright amps (EQ1), dark, mid-heavy amps (EQ2) or flat power amps, PA systems and recording interfaces (P/AMP). Fine tune the POST-DRIVE EQ shape using the ADJ control.
