The heart of the MTG: LA is a genuine vacuum tube, in this case a NOS (New Old Stock) 6205 preamp tube.
The secondary footswitch can be configured to add extra volume or gain, giving your sound a kick in the ass when you need it.
Not only does the EQ section sport Tone, Bass and Treble controls, it also has a Tight control so you can contour the low end to taste.
The Boost has its own Level and Gain controls—Level controls the master output level when the Boost circuit is engaged, while the Gain control affects how much gain is introduced.
The MTG:LA uses a typical 9V center-negative power supply, making it easy to integrate into any rig. Internally, a switch-mode power supply converts the incoming 9 volts to 55 volts and applies that higher voltage to the tube’s plate—just like an amplifier.
Every Fender effects pedal is crafted from lightweight, durable anodized aluminum and includes switchable LED-illuminated controls.
