FROM THE ARCHIVES…
The Patriot has 45 watts of power from two 6L6 tubes or two EL34's in a two 12" speaker combo amp. The amp goes from blackface clean tones to a tweed-style break-up. The Patriot is perfect for styles ranging from blues, country, jazz and classic rock.
Volume / Pull Bright: Controls the overall volume/gain of the amplifier. Pulling the volume control makes the amp sound "brighter". The "bright" function, in conjunction with the treble control, allows the player to tune the treble frequencies to better match the type of guitar and pickup position used.
Treble: Adjusts the amount of high frequencies
Middle: Adjusts the amount of mid frequencies
Bass: Adjusts the amount of low-end frequencies
Dwell: Controls the amount of signal level sent to the reverb pan. At lower settings, there is less reverb depth or decay, while at higher settings the reverb depth and decay increase.
Reverb: Adjusts the amount of the reverb signal
Presence: Increases the gain of high frequencies in the power amp section
Mood: Adusts the amount of negative feedback in the power amp section. Lower mood settings will be tighter and more focused sounding, while higher settings will be more agressive sounding with a looser bottom end.
Fuse: 3 Amp fuse housed within the detachable AC power connector
Bias pot and test points: See biasing instructions
