What Does "Clip" Mean on my screen?

Balancing the Input Gain

Clip stands for Clipping. This means that there is too much signal from your pickup going into the ToneWoodAmp. 

Our factory settings may not be optimum for your guitar and pickup combination. If your display screen reads "clip," your ToneWoodAmp is telling you the amplification is too high and in danger of reaching the DSP effects processor.

To fix this, reduce the master gain in the Global Settings Menu if your ToneWoodAmp. 

Reducing the Master Gain in the Global Settings: 

1. Click and release both "effects and parameter" knobs at the same time to enter the settings menu. (do not press and hold the knobs)
2. Turn the "effects" knob clockwise until you reach "Master Gain".
3. Click the "effects" knob to select this option.
4. Turn the "effects" knob counterclockwise to reduce the gain.
5. Finally, click the "effects" knob to save your preferred settings. 

Check again to see if this clears the clip indicator. 

Once your Master Gain is set to a good level with your pickup, you can then focus on adjusting the volume and gain of each effect. These new settings can then be stored in memory banks 1-10 for each effect. 

Saving new settings in the Memory menu:

1. Click and hold the "effects" knob to enter the "memory" menu.
2. Turn the "effects" knob clockwise to "save."
3. Click the "effects" knob.
4. To overwrite our factory settings: Turn the "effects" knob counterclockwise to "ovrwrt#1".
    To save in a new memory location: Choose any memory bank 2-10. 
5. Once you have chosen your location, click the "effects" knob.
6. Turn the "effects" knob clockwise to "yes".
7. Finally, click the "effects" knob to save your new settings. 

Note: Following these steps will help you change any current default setting for any effect you prefer to have saved differently.
