- Out-Out to amp
- 9VDC jack-for use with -(Negative) center, 9VDC, filtered, and regulated power supply.
- Gain control-Varies the amount of overdrive.
- Level control-Varies the amount of output. Capable of driving an amp in to saturation. Sounds best when ran a little above unity. (Louder with the pedal on)

- Bigger-(control) Variable boost gain stage, switchable with "Bigger" footswitch.
- On/Off-True bypass of effect. (Note: a small pop may occur when effect is switched on/off. This is normal and is a trait associated with true bypass.)
