Let's have a closer look at the controls and operation modes:
BYPASS MODE: The Royal Antique is a true bypass pedal, so in bypass mode, there's no signal loss nor any buffer applied.
STANDARD MODE: When the "Bypass" footswitch is pressed, the signal enters the main circuit of the Royal Antique which is the same as the Antique and controlled by its standard controls Gain, Tone, Presence, Volume, Mids.
BOOST MODE: Here comes the interesting part. The main question when dealing with an overdrive with boost is: where is the boost located, before or after the overdrive: Some pedals have a switch which lets you choose this location to have a "pre-boost" or a "post-boost". In the Royal Antique, we choose to have both. So when you hit the boost footswitch, two different boosts come in at the same time, one before and one after the overdrive circuit, each one having its own independent gain control.
The BOLD knob is the gain of the boost "before". Unity volume condition is when bold is at 0.
The GAS knob is the gain of the boost "after". Unity volume condition is when the GAS is at noon. The GAS knob is also wired so that it acts as a master output volume of the boosted channel. With these special boost controls, the Royal Antique could be thought as a "2 channel Antique", with independent gain and volume controls.
FLAME MODE: In case another boost is needed, there's the "Flame channel", which can be enabled by means of an external footswitch, to instantly give up to 20dB of boost.
The Royal Antique requires a standard 9V DC Negative power supply only.
