Dave was kind enough to play along, but this amp sounded great!
As the Raw control is turned up, it gradually bypasses the tone controls. The tone controls on a BF Fender amp are subtractive, the way they function is by reducing gain in the preamp circuit. When they are completely bypassed, there is a substantial increase in gain. So the Raw control is nice for dialing in a bit more gain and "edge". Cool feature. The only "improvement" would be if the Raw control were foot-switchable, IMO.Can anyone chime in about his Raw control? Is it just a gain control? Sounds different than any I have heard on a Fender style amp...meaning it actually sounds good to me.
