Guitar effect feature classic sounds which are notoriously recognised with the Tube Screamer. Antique is not a clone, but it definitely belongs to the screamer-like family of overdrives. It has a well-defined mid-range tone, typically useful to achieve the bluesy sounds of John Mayer or SRV, it is super touch sensitive (a distinctive feature of all Cornerstone overdrives) and extremely versatile. The Gain control determines the amplification factor of the pedal, and thus the overall saturation, and the Volume control acts as a master output control. The Tone control manages the frequency content of the entire signal while the Presence control specifically shapes the high end content. These two controls together with the mids switch, allow you to discover different sounds and colours ideally suited to the tone of many different guitars and amps.
