    Does anyone know the exact specs as to what the 'hi cut' switch does on the Barbershop? Is it a low pass filter or just preset EQ? Know the frequencies? Yeah I know I can ask Fairfield but I figured I'd try here first so the info would be out there :)

    Got a reply from Fairfield about an hour after sending an email :)

    Good to hear from you. The TONE switch is indeed a very crude, single pole, low pass filter. I don't have the exact cutoff frequencies off hand but I'd say 3kHz and 500 Hz. It works like this:

    -middle position: no cutoff, like the original Barbershop
    -right position: light cutoff, to tame down the apparent brightness
    -left position: heavy cutoff, when you want it real dark
