EXTRA SPANKY 6VEL
GUITAR AND PEDAL PLATFORM AMPLIFIER
Crafting your tone can’t get any easier. The front panel controls deliver a wide variety of tonal options instantly at your fingertips. The on-board three band EQ features two modes per band making it a snap to optimize tones sourced directly from guitars loaded with a variety of pickups as well as a master pedal-board amp/reinforcement solution.
HOW IT WORKS
The EXTRA SPANKY 6VEL’s 3-Band EQ features two modes per band so you know you’ve got the tonal versatility you need to get things sounding just right. In the down position, each frequency band is in its tightest setting creating a clean palette with a balanced response with extended clean headroom. See below for a description of each of the EQ mode switches.
TREBLE W/ BRIGHT SWITCH
The EXTRA SPANKY 6VEL features a Treble control with a BRIGHT switch. In the up position, the BRIGHT switch enhances the high-frequencies for a harmonically rich ‘chime’.
MIDDLE W/ SHIFT SWITCH
The EXTRA SPANKY 6VEL features a Middle control with a SHIFT switch. In the down position, the middle frequencies are scooped and the amplifier is tighter with more headroom. In the up position, it adds additional middle frequency content as well as additional bloom, sustain and compression.
BASS W/ DEPTH SWITCH
The EXTRA SPANKY 6VEL features a Bass control with a DEPTH switch. In the down position, the Bass EQ is tight yet still full bodied to enhance or tame a wide variety of instrument signals. In the up position, the DEEP switch enhances the low frequency response of the amplifier by working directly with the preamp tube circuitry to enhance the bloom and sustain of the low frequencies.
HYBRID-MASTER is our patented volume management circuitry that allows you to control the overall volume in the room independent of the tone and feel.
HF DAMP allows you to control the high frequency content of your sound without killing the chime and harmonics. Use this control when perfecting your sound in artificial listening environments such as in-ear monitors. Or, use it to sweeten up the high frequencies as part of your overall sound.
DUAL MODE REVERB
The DUAL MODE REVERB effect utilizes a dual-triode preamp tube operating in Class-A along with a real spring reverb tank to deliver an exceptional reverb effect. The LEVEL control sets the overall volume of reverb. The two position toggle switch selects between DARK JAZZ (down position) and AMBIENT WASH (up position) modes.
