Overdrive channel has a rich, warm blues/rock overdrive without the heavy metal rasp or irritating tone. Kind of like a Dumble or a good black face Fender turned up to about 15.
It has gain, (master) volume, treble, bass and midrange and a dedicated tube also.
Master features (for both channels) include reverb on both channels, a Torres Dual Stage master for the whole amp, and a tube buffered effects loop.
