The Hot Potato! V2.0 picks up where the original left off, but adds numerous tonal options.
The biggest difference is the added TONE control. It is switchable ON/OFF. This allows you to keep it out of the circuit and adjust the LEVEL control with smoother taper in the gain control. The V.1 taper was bunched up at the end. The V.2's taper has an even progression to the max gain setting. Switch the TONE control on, and you are able to add low end frequencies sweepable up to noon position. The tone sweep from noon clockwise adds high end frequencies. This unit is VERY dynamic, touch-sensitive tone in a box!
As you advance the LEVEL control, this unit will change characteristics.. At the bottom of the sweep a nice JTM45 ish tone is present, roll back your volume knob on the guitar and the clipping goes away, just like the real thing! Turn the LEVEL knob to 10, full 800 vibes!
And it still cleans up via pick attack and volume control at the guitar with humbuckers or single coils!
Balanced,low-medium gain boost, to overdriven ROAR of an 800
Great dynamic low end response and open mid-range BARK
