Manufacturer's Description from Chandler

The Germanium series continues with the GERMANIUM Tone Control.

The Tone Control uses active AND passive EQ circuits in combination with the GERMANIUM amplifier developed for the GERMANIUM Pre and incorporates the versatile Feedback and Drive controls as well. All bands use inductors for the fattest smoothest tone possible. The passive low frequency section is selectable between "Pultec/Lang" interactive curves and more standard low frequency with pass filter for maximum flexibility while the Treble and Presence bands are active and designed to sound like your favorite British eqs from yesteryear.

The Tone Control continues the GERMANIUM tradition of undeniable sound with maximum flexibility at a reasonable price. Fans of the Pre are sure to love it!

Individual bypass for passive and active EQ sections.

Interactive/Independent- Use this toggole to select between interactive "Pultec/Lang" type curves where you can boost and cut at the same time to create a strange and wonderful EQ conbinations or create a more standard low frequency with pass filter combination.

Germanium Drive- this controls the input gain of the Germanium amp. The amount of gain is related to the Feedback control position.

Feedback Control- Controls the amount of ouput signal fed from the amplifier output back to its input. As well as acting as a volume type control, this know seriously affects the tone of the unit. With feedback to the left there is less volume, less Total Harmonic Distortion, and more high frequencies. With feedback to the right there is more volume, more Total Harmonic Distortion, and a low end peak around 30Hz. Combine this with the Germanium Drive control, thick, and pad switches for a cool variety of sounds.

Thick Section- This is a varition of the Thick setting on the Germanium Mic Pre. It is the passive portion of the equalizer and has controls for boosting and cutting at the same time to create combinations in either Interactive or Independent modes.

Treble This active band has 18dB of boost or cut and is selectable between bell and shelf curves. The bell sections are at a wider Q than the Presence band for flexibility and there are eight EQ points.

Presence- This is an active portion with 15dB boost or cut on eight frequencies. For variety the Q is slightly sharper than the bell setting on the Treble band.
