The Morning Glory V4s controls include Volume, Drive, Tone and Gain. The Volume control acts as a master output level control. One improvement of the V4 is that JHS has added 2x the available headroom to this control if compared to the previous version, V3. The Drive control dials in overdrive as you turn clockwise. As this control increases, the treble content is also slightly increased. The Tone control is a basic high-pass filter, and as you turn clockwise, the tone becomes brighter. As you turn this control to the left, it becomes darker.
The Gain toggle activates a new boost mode. This mode is overall more powerful, has more low-end content, and when the drive knob is in its upper region, it creates a more high gain tone than ever available in any variation of the Morning Glory. This toggle is indicated by the status LED turning Red and can be remotely activated by way of the “Remote Gain" 1/4" jack located on the upper right side of the pedal. This ability enables the Gain toggle be used in an on-the-fly application for live performance. Set your normal MG tone and instantly switch the optional Red Remote for a secondary tone with using hardly any space on your board at all. If you are like us, and use an audio switcher on your board like those from MusicomLAB
you can also use your switcher to remote switch this new mode.
The Bright Cut toggle is now located on the side of the Morning Glory, still easily accessible but out of the way. This switch is great for rigs that lean a little on the bright side or when you are using the MG as a higher gain drive sound. The input jack is located on the lower right side and the output jack is on the left side.
The MG runs on standard 9V DC supply only (sorry, no batteries)
