The taper of the Gain knob makes it easy to dial in just a touch of grit to your tone, or use it to apply crunch with a formidable low-mid presence great for classic open-back combos. Bass response is full and the high end character is clear without being harsh.
You can adjust the dynamics of you tone with the Dyn switch. The up position gives you a classic Nashville overdrive while the down position gives you a more articulate, faster voice, making the Imperial equally good at both thumping crunch sounds and clear, transparent overdriven sounds. The Imperial is a great solution for bold dirty rhythm sounds, adding the slightest amount of dirt to your clean, or sending an already crunchy amp over the edge!
