|POWER SELECT SWITCH |
|Offers the following three-positions: |
|OFF: ||Amplifier's power mains are switched off |
|HI: ||On, normal operation |
|LOW: ||Changes the SL-68's feel from tight and aggressive to spongy with a smoother attack, excellent for solo playing. |
The Presence control adjusts the amount of high frequencies added to your sound, turning it clockwise will add more cut and sparkle to your tone.
The Bass control adjusts the low end, turning it clockwise increases the amount of low frequencies in your tone.
The Middle control adjusts the midrange, turning it clockwise increases the mids, making it fatter. Turning it counterclockwise will reduce the mids and produce a scooped type of sound.
The Treble control adjusts the top end. Turning it clockwise increases the amount of brightness or treble frequencies in your tone.

|BRIDGING OR JUMPING THE CHANNELS |
Bridging or Jumping the channels will unlock a palette of sounds and expand the SL-68’s possibilities. Begin by plugging your guitar into the top (high sensitivity) input of Channel I, then run a short instrument patch cable from Channel I’s bottom (low sensitivity) input to the top (high sensitivity) input of Channel II, then blend Volume I and Volume II controls to dial in a wealth of new and unique tones.
