The F1 Legend Amp Series pedal. Very useful pedal designed around the specs of the Fender Twin amplifier. Can be used in ways: 1) a low gain overdrive pedal 2) as a clean boost to drive other pedals and amps 3) transparent 3 band EQ 4) DC power signal splitter. The F1 is a true workhorse that has unlimited uses, and with it's super small compact size, can fit into any free space on your board. Why buy a clean boost pedal with one tone knob and limited features when you can get the F1 for the same price, and one that does SO much more!
The Legend F1 has a built in effects loop within the circuitry of the pedal. On the right side of the pedal are FX IN and FX OUT jacks. This lets the user correctly run extra pedals in the chain such as reverb, delay, chorus, etc. It's just like the FX SEND and RETURN on the back of an amplifier.
CHANNEL SEND AND RETURN:
The Legend F1 also has a CHANNEL SEND and RETURN located on the left side of the pedal. This is a loop for connecting other preamp or overdrive pedals into the chain of the F1. This lets the F1 act as your main control box, or hub, of your pedalboard.
Please note the CHANNEL or FX loop sections do not have to be used for the pedal to function. The guitarist can simply use the main IN and OUT jacks on the pedal.
DC POWER DISTRIBUTOR:
Another useful feature of the Legend F1 is it's extra DC outputs. There is a 12vDC input jack on the right side of the pedal. Then on the right AND left side are also 12vDC output jacks to run DC power to 2 other pedals.
DB OUTPUT ADJUSTMENT:
The F1 offers two output settings via a toggle switch on the left side of the pedal. User can select either +4dB AMP output or -10dB CAB SIM output.
Controls include LOW, MID, and TREBLE tone adjustments on the top row of the pedal; and LEVEL, MASTER, and GAIN on the bottom row.
DUAL FX CONTROL MODES:
Switchable via trim switch inside the pedal, user can select switching mode of FX Loop: SERIAL or PARALLEL loop modes. Must unscrew back cover for this adjustment.
The AMT Legend Amp Series guitar pedals provide excellent dynamics, nuances, and characteristics similar to that of tube driven amplifiers.
Tube-like range of volume control provides great sound density, playability, and power when playing at full volume and also in conjunction with your guitars volume knob.
TRUE BYPASS. The preamps of the Legend Amp Series pedals use passive true bypass circuitry, therefore no loss of guitar signal is noticed in your pedal chain. Similar to if no pedal was there at all when bypassed.
TWO signal outputs: DIRECT AMPLIFIER OUT for guitar amplifier use and CAB SIMULATION OUT for mixer, or studio use.
Power saving mode. When the speaker simulation output jack is not in use, the pedal automatically switches to power saving mode. Current consumption (from 9V power unit) is less than 6mА (in power saving mode it drops to 4mА).
