The front panel remains the same layout to the original Terror Bass but with an added clean switch, giving more headroom and smoother clean sounds.

From clean pop sounds through to gritty rock tones, the Terror Bass can do it all. A pad switch on the front for active basses takes 6dB off the input sensitivity. The effects loop is valve on the send and solid state on the return.
