Enjoy the expressive, creative freedom of switching between a warm but glassy clean guitar representation to a luscious, sustaining tone rich in harmonics. It features a build-in tube buffered digital-to-vacuum interface called the JWATER for the use of effects between the preamp and the power amplifier. The OVERDRIVE SPECIAL provides the guitar player with an almost endless selection of tones making it an extremely valuable instrument with a palette of sounds instantly available at the tip of your toe.
The clean channel features Normal and FET inputs, Volume, Treble, Middle, Bass and a Bright switch for bell-like highs, a Rock/Jazz switch to select between two EQ’s, and a Deep switch (or optional Mid switch). The amp features a Pre-Amp Boost for singing clean sounds, which can be accessed through a footswitch. This feature compliments the Overdrive Channel but can also be used without the Overdrive engaged.
The signal is shaped in the clean channel and fed into the overdrive channel. The Overdrive Channel starts where the clean channel ends, from light clean compression to singing overdrive, featuring an Overdrive and a Volume control to balance the clean and overdrive levels.
Two Overdrive voicing options are available: The standard voicing provides full overdrive sounds, the Hot Rubber Monkey voicing is a more modern voicing, suitable for high gain. Channel switching is also accessible via a footswitch.
This is an all tube series interface to allow the use of effects between the preamp and the poweramp. It features Send level and Bright, and Return Level and Bright to shape the response and gain. A true bypass switch provides maximum transparency when switched off.
The amplifier will be voiced on a custom basis.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.
For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.
For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.
I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
