ISF Control

Fully CCW is a more American characteristic with a tight bottom end and more aggressive middle, and fully CW is a British characteristic which is more "woody" and less aggressive.

I already own the Club 50 with 2x12 cab, the HT-5 head, and numerous Blackstar pedals. I wanted to get something that was easier to transport. I have had it one day and I think it is a great amp, especially for the name and the price! I have not used the insider software option (probably won't), but I have found the amp easy to use after the initial learning curve! I am very satisfied with my purchase!!!
