- Twang Red
Twang Red has a classic glassy high-end with some snap and bite. It's inspired by* the sound of two 60s Fender® amps: a Blackface Twin Reverb® and a Blackface Deluxe Reverb®.

Twang Green serves up a swingin' rockabilly tone inspired by* a number of vintage tweed amps including a '53 Fender® tweed Deluxe Reverb®, a '58 Fender® tweed Bassman® and a '60 Gibson® Explorer.
- Blues Red
Blues Red slides between gritty, swamp-infected cleans and syrupy smooth, walloping overdrive tones. It's vintage charm was inspired by* the classic tones of a '65 Marshall® JTM-45, a '58 Fender® Bassman®, a '63 Fender® Vibroverb and a Supro®.
- Blues Green
Get the early British pop and rock tone made famous by the Beatles and Stones! Blues Green is inspired by* a fawn Vox® AC-30 with an updated and expanded tone control circuit.
- Crunch Red
A celebration of the tone used by numerous early metal bands, Crunch Red was inspired by* the signature crunch of a '68 Marshall® Plexi 50-Watt.
- Crunch Green
Crunch Green conjures the infamous "Brown sound" inspired by* a '68 Marshall® Plexi 100-watt with a Variac and jumped input channels.
- Metal Red
A one-way ticket to tight and punchy high-gain heaven, Metal Red is inspired by* the high-gain tone of a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier®.
- Metal Green
Metal Green delivers high-gain aggression with supreme versatility. Sweep the Mid knob to control the character of the distortion! (Set to minimum for fuzz pedal characteristics; set to noon for creamy, modern high-gain tones; set to max to conjure the Class A sound.)
- Insane Red
Dialed in for shredding, Insane Red combines the intensity and impact of Metal Red but it delivers more mid-range teeth for that bone-crushing grind. Inspired by* the tone of a Mesa/Boogie® Dual Rectifier® (red channel).
