DI (Red Box), quad stage power soak with silent recording capability, and an auto biasing system that keeps the tubes continually baised. Shimmering cleans and enough gain...

    Volume Pot Mod!

    I have replaced pots and caps in most of my guitars with both RS Guitarworks "Vintage" and "Aged" sets........with pretty good results.
