DUAL CITIZEN

DUAL CITIZEN Hybridmaster
DUAL CITIZEN AC Channel

Inspired by classic vintage amplifiers, the Dual Citizen features a comprehensive AC experience on channel one and classic American tones on channel two.

The input section features two jacks that allow you to either run both channels combined, or run each channel individually. Channel switching mode is possible with the included hand-wired AB box.

AC Channel
Four different vintage AC preamp voices plus a mid boost/contour switch are provided, including Normal, Brilliance, Top Boost 1 and Top Boost 2—even a Top Cut control is on hand to fine-tune your tone.

American Channel
The extended range of the Middle control now comes to the Dual Citizen courtesy of our very own Wooly Coats Spanky EQ circuitry. Tone and temperment of this channel is set via Volume, Treble, Middle and Bass controls to deliver an authentic blackface combo amp experience with an excellent balance of rich tone, punch and clarity. Push the midrange control past noon and you take this channel into a superb tweed growl.

Dual Triode Vacuum Tube Effects Loop
Here’s what you need to know about the DUAL CITIZEN’s new tube buffered series effects loop: you don’t have to change the way you already configure your setup. Run your pedals up front or in the loop – it’s all good!

However, should you wish to experience STUDIO QUALITY TONE from your pedals, then go ahead and run them through the loop. Seriously – try your delays, reverbs, phase, chorus, even your drive and compressor units through our new loop. You will likely attain a superior level of resolution and clarity that our many beta testers referred to as “more 3D.”

Additionally, the DUAL CITIZEN’s effect loop is somewhat of a Swiss Army Knife for your rig and here’s how it works: After each channel preamplifies your guitar signal, they are combined and sent out of the FX SEND jack at a nominal -10dBV (just under 1V p-p) matching the levels most vintage and modern effect pedals want to see. The FX RETURN path brings your signal back into the amplifier with a tremendous amount of headroom (accepting signals as low as -10dBV and as high as +4dBU before the onset of compression). It can also be a gig-saver too. If your pedal board ever goes down during a performance, you can plug your guitar straight into the FX RETURN jack and get through a song with quality tone.

Tube or Solid State Rectification
For the ultimate experience in the “feel” department, the Dual Citizen gives you two rectifier options that are controlled via toggle switch. Choose between a tube rectifier (classic vintage power supply sag) or a solid-state rectifier (efficient, clear and punchy) and easily toggle between whichever you prefer.

HybridMASTER™ Volume Control
HybridMASTER™ and the Venue Switch are located on the front panel giving you the confidence to play what you feel when you feel it at exactly the volume you need for the occasion. Think of the Venue Switch as a “macro” volume adjustment – choose between full volume (Stage Mode) or an 70% volume reduction (Studio Mode) – and the HybridMASTER knob as a “micro” volume adjustment allowing you to fine tune your output levels. Our patented HybridMASTER is volume management executed to perfection.
