The old school lamp and photocell circuitry are controlled by a set of four knobs. The first one on the left is going to be the knob, which is your standard depth control. That is followed by the Slope knob that allows you to go from more vintage smooth trem to a modern choppy one.
Up next is the Speed knob, which is another standard control for tremolo pedals. and it is used to adjust the speed of the effect. Lastly, there is the Volume knob that you can use to cut or boost the level of the output.
