A simple but powerful equalizer
Once the signal is at its optimum level, you can then access a range of features to improve your sound. The OriginAL has a tried and tested 5-band EQ, controlling the traditional bass, midrange and treble, with a lo-mid and hi-mid conveniently located on either side of the midrange control. The additional Shape switch further sculpts your sound, highlighting key frequencies - like a graphic equalizer flashing its best smile.
The Output control adjusts the amp's output volume and, to complement the front panel features, there's an easily accessible DI output and effects loop.
Create the perfect setup
At the back is a well-designed headphone output, which turns this gig-ready head into a great home practice device.
Two 1/4" jack outputs with a minimum load of 4 ohms allow the OriginAL HD-1 to be connected to :
- a single 8-ohm speaker
- a pair of 8-ohm speakers
- a single 4-ohm speaker.
Ready for the road
