    Cool! For those that don't know, this unit contains an EL84 tube power amp section followed by a dummy load, aiming to get the sound of a full all-tube amp in a convenient small preamp package. I use a very similar model and love it.

    Great question but it would be too hard to represent all the variations of the unique EQ. It has bass,mid and treble boost buttons and the tone control is not just high cut. It blends low and high as you turn it. I am sure there is a technical term that would describe the blend function but I don't have it at the moment.

    It is warm and fat with a ton of tones. H and K products are great in general.
