SS-10 is separated into 3 individual channels: Clean, Crunch, and Lead. Each of the channels may be accessed and switched via the red selector buttons or also by the optional AMT FS-2 foot switch for hands free operation. Each channel is designed with is own gain and level controls, which makes fine tuning extremely easy; and a final master volume control to adjust the total overall output db of the unit. The SS-10 has three outputs; Amp Out, Cab Sim Out, and Headphones Out for easy monitoring in the studio. There in a guitar signal input jack on both the front and back of the unit, and also an FX loop Send and Return with level knob.

CLEAN CHANNEL will provide you with anything from smooth warm driven tube sounds, to bright and shimmering clean tones. This is capable via the 3 tone control knobs Low, Mid, and High; and also by help of the special EQ adjustment switch. The switch offers 3 unique tone stacks from where the clean channel’s tone starts with. Then from one of the 3 positions, the tone can be even further modified with the control knobs. You will find this useful in getting a wide variety of clean guitar styles. Useful also in compensating for various pickups from different guitars.

CRUNCH CHANNEL is used for those semi-clean to mean sounds. Blues overdrive, classic rock drive, and vintage 80s hair metal crunch; all easily dialed in on the SS-10’s Crunch channel. Controls of the Crunch channel include Gain, Level, Low, Mid, High, Presence, and a 3 position selectable Treble Shift switch.

LEAD CHANNEL is for those mean to EXTREME+ guitar tones. Blistering, screaming, pure tube metal distortion powerhouse. Perfect for aggressive guitarists and drop tuners! The SS-10 lead channel will please even the discriminating players who are never satisfied with the amount of gain. AMT knows heavy guitar technology and the SS-10 will provide more than enough! Similar to the Crunch channel, the Lead also provides control over Gain, Level, Low, Mid, High, Presence, and has a Treble Shift switch. Take your guitar to low B, we’re ready!
