With the FADED-50 valve amplifier you have two fully separated channels with two gains, corrections (EQ) and volumes available.
Distorted channel (DRIVE CHANNEL) has two modes - NORMAL and ULTRA.
The ULTRA mode has a maximum distortion and mid-bands are slightly suppressed.
It can easily cope with hard music genres, where this distortion is required.
The NORMAL mode is medium to large distortion and midrange is not suppressed,
so the sound of this channel is firm and lush.
You can set the sound of the CLEAN CHANNEL from clean to CRUNCH.
CLEAN CHANNEL has specially designed corrections for fast and effective
sound adjusting. The volume of these channels is balanced when both of
volume potentiometers have the same rotation.
There is a parallel loop that sets the level of the output signal
to FX effect and also sets dry/wet ratio of a signal. The FX loop can be
controlled directly on the panel or by a FOOTSWITCH pedal. The MUTE button
decreases the volume immediately, which is a big advantage mainly during live shows,
when the distorted channel noise is adverse during quiet parts. The speaker's
impedance is 4, 8, 16Ohm. The FADED-50 contains a GROUND LIFT switch to avoid
the ground loop. Please, read user manual for more information.
The sound of the amplifier FADED-50 cannot be defined like "british" or "american". Because of this the amplifier is very universal for the most musical genres,
but the character of the sound is still recognizable!
Clean channel reacts with player dynamically and gently slides to low distortion level when strings are hit hard.
But if it is important it could be set without any distortion either with a strong slam to strings.
Drive chanell is suitable for all "heavy" genres like rock, punk, metal etc. without any problem. The setting of the amplifier during recording is DRIVE channel
(ULTRA mode is not applied) and gain level is about 5/11.
Processing of the amplifier FADED-50 is very precise and we are using only finest materials at all. This ensures a player satisfaction also in the visual aspect.
The dimensions of the amplifier are smaller then dimensions of other well-known companies. This could be advantage during transport process.
