There is so much speculation on the internet and certainly misleading information by the original designer. J. Rockett decided to let your ears be the determining factor and to provide the ability for you to easily switch between 7 different clipping diode options.
If you simply leave the clipping diode foot switch off it defaults to the stock diodes (OA10’s). With the clipping dial you can choose between 6 additional clipping diodes. Depending on which diodes you have the selector knob on you can A/B between the stock diodes and the selected diodes. Diodes range from lowest output to highest output when turning clockwise.
D.I. Speaker Simulator is something we included for those who like to be able to monitor their OD sound via direct or have the option for direct recordings. The ground switch is solely there for the D.I. in case you have grounding issues.
Default Diodes are OA10’S. This means that when the clipping foot switch is not engaged these are the diodes you will hear. Once you engage the clipping foot switch you will hear whichever set of diodes you have selected on the clipping dial.
