a la the TR Classic Reverb. What other amps have this feature stock? tyia
Gries Seahorse amp I used to own had it. I think Gries 5 is the same. Miss that amp..
Actually, I take that back, didn't have a switch per se..the gain knob was used to gradually take away or introduce the tone stack. Gain knob full up essentially bypassed the tone stack. On the Seahorse it was footswitchable maybe that's what I was remembering.
Emerysound Superbaby can do this.
Not a switch, per se, but turn the knob to zero and there’s a click, at which point it’s bypassed.
Several Allen Amps have a Raw knob that let you progressively dial out the tone stack.
Dave Allen put one in one of my SF PR’s too.
Bogner Helios 50 watter
Whats interesting is that I used it that way 90% of the time and when I switched it back in I was not going for the compressed squish the tone stack seemed to add.
Carr Hammerhead MkII
Ceriatone 2202 "Boost" switch does this.
There are many amps that have this feature but I much prefer a control that gradually removes the tone stack because when it’s just a switch it’s usually too large of a boost in volume.
A “Raw” control is easy to add. It’s just a 50K pot for the Middle control. It works just like a regular Middle control up to about 3-4 and after that it gradually removes the tone stack.
There are several Traynor amps that have this feature a well. I am sure a clean boost with EQ in the effects loop could give you the same effect if required...
The Vox Night Train line.
I believe some ValveTrain amps have the "raw" switch also
thanks for the responses guys. I'm looking for 6L6 amps that have this as an option (doesn't need to be a switch per se, just something that takes the tone stack completely out) in particular.
A lot of D style amps.
@mediabuyout -- any tech can install that for you. It's just a pot or switch, nothing to it.
My FYD JG (Jerry Garcia) Special Reverb Amp has one (it's the minitoggle to the left) - very versatile for guys like me (check underneath my avatar)!
The Traynor Dark Horse has a three way toggle, usa, pure (no tone), and brit. Two 6v6 or one 12au7 output.
Nice little amp.
Dumble boost switch
Would the benefit be that the amplifier reacted better to guitar controls and picking dynamics?
My K&M Custom has it on the foot switch. 3 buttons: Channel, Mid Boost, Tone Stack By Pass. so very useful.
