The TUBE HEART of the TTE 501 makes this head an incomparable vintage sounding amp!!!
Your sound comes into this beauty through an old-style tube preamp, is fed through a professional tube compressor, then a simple 3-band passive EQ section, a “Colour” filter (a tube adaptation of the famous Markbass VLE control), and then finally gets amplified by an innovative Tube Technology Emulator power amp.
