The amplifier has two channels: clean and distorted. On the clean channel exists the possibility of obtaining a “crunch” sound and the distorted channel offers possibilities from crunch to even a high gain sound. Additionally, the distorted channel offers the possibility of having two independent gains (potentiometer Gain 1 and Gain 2) controlled by a footswitch. For example, the player may set Gain 1 for less distortion than Gain 2, which with the help of a footswitch, allows for an easy transition between the two during a solo. This channel offers a wide variety of tones from classic rock and roll to hard rock, hardcore, even metal.
Combo versions: AD5201 Single and AD5201 Twin have one and AD5202 Single and AD5202 Twin have 2 Celestion Vintage 30 speakers which are connected to the amplifier with a thick speaker cable with a jack plug. The player may disconnect the internal speaker and connect an external cabinet even of a different impedance because the amplifier has outlets of 4 Ohms, 8 Ohms, and 16 Ohms impedance.
