Controls

 

First row of knobs (Northwestern most): Volume and Gain

  • Volume controls the master volume of the entire circuit. It gets very loud.
  • Gain controls the gain level of the first gain-stage in the circuit. You can slam the rest of it or choke it to rely on the controls at the end of the circuit

Second row of knobs: Depth, Bias, Fuzz

  • Depth controls the frequency being fed into the first gain-stage. CW is beefy, CCW is thin and treble-y
  • Bias controls the character of the fuzz. CW is squishy, CCW is louder and more open
  • Fuzz controls the overall amount of fuzz. 

 

Power

 

It is critical that you use a high quality, isolated and filtered power supplies with The Americana Series. Every modern measure was taken to ensure quiet, recording-worthy noise suppression, but low-quality power and power supplies can inject unwanted noise in these effects. Even though we've designed them to play nicely on a daisy chain, we don't recommend it.
