Regency Using & Applications
The Regency combines a powerful class-A booster with a unique pre-drive circuit, opening up new sonic possibilities and allowing you to get the most out of your high gain amplifier. The pre-drive section lets you set the amount of drive, adjust the EQ to suit your instrument and control the output level to the amplifier. An independent power booster can provide a massive amount of gain when you need it and an effects chain can be activated simultaneously with the booster for seamless transitions. For complete details, please click on the icon to the left to download the full manual.
Before you make any connections, it is good practice to turn your guitar amp down or off. This will avoid plug-in or turn-on transients that could damage or shorten the life of your speaker. There is no power switch on the Regency; as soon as you connect a 9V supply, it will spring to life. The Regency does not come with a power supply as most players will power it from a multi-pedal power brick. Be careful to use a standard Boss® style adaptor and check to make sure the polarity is correct (center-pin negative).
To start, set all of the dials to 12 o’clock and the low-mid selector to the left position. Make sure you are properly powered by depressing one of the two footswitches. The LED will illuminate to let you know power is on. You can secure the power cable to the Regency to prevent accidental disconnection by unscrewing the cable lock using a hex key, passing the power cable through the cavity and then retightening.
Connect your guitar to the ¼” input and from the Regency’s amp output, connect your amp. It is good practice to always test at low volumes as this will prevent loud pops should a cable not be properly seated.
Turn the Regency LEVEL down to 9 o’clock, turn on your amp and turn up the volume. Depress the Pre-Drive footswitch. Start by testing the level to get a sense of the volume range that is available. You are now set to play with the tone and drive settings. Turning the tone control clockwise will increase the high end content. Keep in mind that all of these interact, so adding drive will increase the output volume.
Depending on your guitar, your amp and style of play, you will want to adjust the low-mid to suit. There are three settings that basically change the bottom end structure. This is then re-addressed using the tone control. Try each of the three settings while rotating the tone control. At this point it is all about finding the type of setting that best suits your playing.
Set the Boost level to 7 o’clock. Turn off the Pre-Drive. Depress the BOOST footswitch and listen as you increase the gain. This section can be used to push your amp harder or to scream out solos. When you activate the boost, you can also insert the effects loop so that it automatically turns on or off following the boost.
The Effects Loop
To add even more excitement to the performance, a built-in effects-loop allows a series of pedals such as a delay or chorus to be added to the signal chain when the BOOST footswitch is engaged. This speeds the transition from rhythm to lead when soloing. The effects loop is a straight through loop that employs standard ¼” guitar cable connections.
You can also use the effects loop in other creative ways:
Connecting a tuner
You can connect a tuner to the effects SEND jack and when the boost is engaged it will shut off the signal going to the amp for quiet, on-stage tuning.
Connecting an amp
You can also connect a second guitar amp using the effects send; however as this output is not isolated, you may experience a ground loop. To minimize the noise, make sure both amps are connected to the same electrical circuit using a power bar. Make sure both amps have a proper U-ground attached for safety.
Connecting a second guitar
You can connect a second guitar to the Regency by using the effects RETURN jack. This will bypass the DRIVE circuit and feed directly into the power BOOST when activated.
