Your DC-5 amplifier was designed to deliver maximum performance in a format based on simplicity. Its easy to dial nature allows each of the two channels to deliver a wide range of sounds in both clean and overdrive styles. The Dual Caliber usese 6L6 power tubes to fule its healthy fifty watt power section. We are pleased by its surprising headroom, yet truly musical clipability when pushed. The DC-5s preamp was no afterthought as you may have deduced by the six 12AX7s tucked snugly away under the swing away tube clamp. Two seperate sets of tubes are used to accomplish the Rhythm an Lead channels. Its really like having two seperate amplifiers built into one chassis. Ultimate flexibility is achieved by providing two complete sets of Tone and Master controls as well as the channel assignable 5 Band Graphic Equlizer. Two different sounds can be switched between without compromising tone or levels.
Looking to the Rear Panel assures that all your interfacing needs are covered. A parallel effects loop with a mix control provides tone insurance for even those questionable effects. A recording circuit dialed for direct to board sessions provides accurate reproduction of the DC-5s preamp. When the session goes late into the night, the silent recording Speaker Mute Switch comes in real handy. To use the DC-5 in larger rack systems, or to interface to other power sections, the Slave Jack and Level Control are welcome features. Three speaker jacks (one 8 ohm, and two 4 ohm) are provided to ensure the proper impedance match to many types of speaker enclosures. An auto assign EQ rotary control lets you decide whether the 5-Band graphic enhances the Rythm Channel, he Lead Channel, both or even allows footswitching of the EQ independently.The reverb can also be footswithed in or out.
