Ever wanted to record guitar without using an amp and a microphone. Ever wanted to use a small amp on stage but get a “big rig” sound from the PA. The CS-1 simulates an amp and a Celestion filled Quad Box. We emulate power amp drive and speaker breakup. A switch sets Clean or Dirty mode, and we can control Gain, Tone and output Volume. Turn up the tone control to simulate an open back 1x12 or 2x12 cabinet or turn it down to simulate a sealed 4x12 cabinet. This versatile unit is equally at home on stage or in the studio as there is a loop output for on stage monitoring, and an output for going to a mixer or audio interface.
