The Fliptop is a JFET preamplifier that is modeled after the B15 amplifier. The gain staging and EQ sections were carefully designed to give the feel and response of the vintage tube amp, offering a good range of pillowy tone that can be driven to the point of light overdrive if pushed.
In addition to the James stack EQ and gain staging, the Fliptop adds a Master volume control on the output so you can dial in the amount of drive you want while adjusting the volume as needed.
The Cab knob is essentially a wet/dry control, allowing you to apply 0 to 100% of the cab tone to the preamplifier output. Dialing in more of the cab response tightens the low end and cuts the high frequencies for a warm, vintage tone. The frequency response is modelled after the 15" cab.
The pedal requires a 9V DC power supply (not included). The DC supply should be a standard Boss style connector, center negative polarity. The current draw is approximately 12 mA. The power supply may be increased up to 24V DC with the result of more clean headroom and a slight increase in boost.
The Fliptop has a true bypass switch.
