Anything from clean boost to aggressive Overdrive. 

The Westwood Translucent Drive Manipulator combines a true clean boost with a two-band active EQ. Responding beautifully to the intensity of the pick attack and changes in the guitars volume, it reveals subtle nuances in the technique and tone. The simple four-knob layout enables intuitive sound shaping with the usual Level and Drive controls plus separate Treble and Bass controls. Fortunately, the EarthQuaker Westwood colors the core tone to a minimum extent when the EQ controls are set to the center detents. Anyhow, when in action the Treble control delivers up to 20dB boost or cut at frequencies around 2kHz while the Bass control operates at around 80Hz. 

It’s all-analog, can be powered by either battery or regulated power supply and the true-bypass switch is relay-based to ensure silent switching.
