When your looking for an organic connection with your guitar amp, you have to start with a great clean tone. The Dirty Wonderland is a single channel amp design, with bold and full-bodied blackface style tones. Its voice is uncompressed and open, revealing a unique tonal breath with even light pick attack. Plugging into the amp, you can adjust the three-band EQ or select any of the three EQ boost switches, bright/mid/deep; which allow for a great deal of flexibility when dialing in. The amp has a preamp gain volume and a transparent master volume that allow you to crank up the preamp when you want more attitude in your playing. While the amp is certainly a ‘clean’ style amp, the Dirty Wonderland received its name from the two ‘dirty’ switches on the back. The switch by the effects loop breaks up the preamp and the switch by the speaker jacks breaks up the power amp. These switches are very effective when trying to get more gain at lower volume settings. When the amp is at higher volume you can get a killer crunch by engaging the switches.
