 COMMANDER II Twin Distortion for guitar and bass
Power supply All single (not the XS series) pedals can be powered with both, battery (9V block) and external power supply. On the rear is the socket for connecting an external power supply. It is a standard 2.1mm socket as used by (almost) all manufacturers of effects devices. All commercially available power supplies for effect devices (9V -18V DC, + = outer ring, ground = pin) can be used. If a power supply is connected, the internal battery will automatically switch off. To replace the battery, unscrew the 4 screws of the floor plate, remove the floor plate and change the battery.
True bypass When the pedal s turned off, the guitar signal gets passed through to reach the amp without any loss of signal. The pedal is totally switched out of the signal path.
