This beauty comes from combining several ideas - soundwise it was tweed Bassman ("Tweedy"- is the first box with real tweed cover), six position varitone was inspired by old B.C.Rich Eagle guitar I played back in 1985, and uses inductor coil for tone shaping, treble booster part comes from mysterious Dallas Rangemaster. On top of everything it has three switchable gain settings - low (for humbuckers), medium and high.
Varitone rotary switch acts as a select frequency mid-cut filter, which successfully emulates Fender scooped-mids sound. Input impedance is similar to a tube stage, output- less than 10K.
- Treble: full CCW is normal, going CW boosts highs
- 6-position rotary Varitone switch:
- tone by passed
- lo-mid cut
- mid cut
- hi-mid cut
- low cut
- highest gain(fuzz)
- mini switch: hi/low gain
