The Brixton is essentially a high gain design but the combination of gain and volume controls let you dial in semi clean sounds as well.
Gain and Volume Control
These controls dial in the amount of Gain and Volume.
Engaging the Deep switch will change the sound from tight focused with quick attack to full with increased bass and slower attack.
The middle position is the normal voicing of the Brixton. Toggle the switch to the right for a brighter open sound, note that the higher the gain is set the less effective this is. If you toggle the switch to the left it will cut the volume, the amount of gain will stay or increase depending on the gain control, the gain structure changes to a more compressed type. Use this mode for bedroom levels or extreme high gain sounds.
Stand By, Hi - Low Power Switch
After you turned the amp on and let the tubes heat up a few minutes you have the choice to switch the amp off Stand by into the Hi or Low position. Hi has the full 4 watts available while Lo has only 2 watts. The difference in loudness is not so much but the amp will feel looser with more harmonics; think of it as a ?variac brown sound? switch, readjust controls to your taste. Best dynamic range will be in the Hi setting.
