It has been compared to a Vox AC15 (but is surely quieter) and some say that this circuit was an inspiration to Jennings when designing the AC15.
It sports no less than four inputs – one input with microphone type rotary pot (which sounds like another tone control) that doesn’t go through the tremolo circuit – gain and master volume controls, and tone control.
