Is this a valid concern? The clean channel has controls for volume, treble, mid, and bass, whereas the overdrive channel has controls for drive, volume, treble, mid, and bass as well as switches to engage more overdrive and a mid contour switch that radically alters the midrange for a scooped mid effect. A master spring reverb is also included as is a front-facing effects loop. I have to be honest from the outset and say that I was skeptical about the sounds that I could coax from a W solid state amp, especially since there was no digital modeling involved at all. Giving the overdrive channel my first test, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. For classic rock and metal, I was able to get some very usable tones with excellent sustain that could work in a variety of contexts.
