    Everyone,
    Here's some useful information for you!
    The TONE knob in the BOOST effect (for ALL models) is a HPF (High Pass Filter.)
    Setting the knob fully left at 0% is your tone without any filtering.
    Turning the knob to the right starts rolling off the low frequencies.
    100% is the low frequencies fully cut.
    Most might assume that setting the knob at Noon(50%) would be neutral and then you would cut or boost
    the chosen treble frequency. That is NOT the case!
    This makes a significant difference in tone!
    Try setting that tone knob to 0% and then set it to 50%.
    See what you think about the difference.
    Cheers,
    Jace

    I had no idea it worked that way but I have certainly found that adjusting the tone control has a huge affect on the overall sound.
