Switch 1 creates a -3dB cut at 300Hz while the second switch creates a -3dB cut at 600Hz, you can also engage both of the switches to create a -6dB cut at 500Hz.

The amp gives you a traditional EQ section: Treble, Middle and Bass knobs. It also comes with a presence knob that has a push knob for low frequencies. You can control the volume via the Master Volume knob and you can use the foot-switchable Rocket Knob to boost your signal without changing your tone This boost is situated within the power amp section which lets it achieve a transparent and clean boost.
