The LS100G3 is a three channel EL34 powered high gain amp with individual gain and volume controls for each channel, with a separate set of tone controls for the clean channel and a shared eq section for channels 2 and 3.
The clean channel can be ordered in 2 configurations (“pure” clean or “dirty” clean) and provides cleans which compliment the high gain channels perfectly. The “pure” clean channel has a rich “American” style voicing, and can go from sparkly to warm, with very little break-up even when the gain control is dimed. The “dirty” clean has a “British” style voicing and starts breaking up fairly early, reaching “plexi" level gain when dimed.
The gain channels share an EQ and each channel has its own mode: red (lower gain), and yellow (higher gain). The red mode is a jack-of-all-trades style overdrive channel and can easily be used the same as a one-channel amp. It has plenty of gain on tap for solos, stays tight for percussive rhythm playing, and cleans up beautifully by rolling the guitar volume back. For those that like to have their guitar volume dimed for crunchy rhythm, channel 3 (yellow mode) gives you the option of using the red mode with the gain lowered for rhythm crunch, and switching to the yellow for instant access to more gain or volume. These channels can be set it any number of configurations to fit into any rig.
