Channel-1 is further equipped with Drag Control load correction to optimize the tone and feel when using a vintage passive instrument such as a Fender bass. Channel-2 has a PZB booster that increases the sensitivity and load to 10 meg ohms to optimize it for use with piezo transducers. Toggling between channels is done using a footswitch and both channels may be mixed together by depressing the blend switch should a dual pickup system be in use. Outputs include a '/i-in. instrument level output to feed the onstage amplifier plus a low-Z balanced Radial DI box output to feed the PA system. The XLR output can be assigned preor post-effects. A separately buffered tuner output works with the mute footswitch for quiet onstage tuning. The VoiceSolo FX150's features include a 6.5-in. twoway coaxial Tannoy speaker and 150 W of power. There is a three-channel digital mixer with TC-Helicon vocal processing including reverb, intelligent three-band EQ, and compression. The VoiceSolo FX150 also features instant mic stand mounting with TC-Helicon's one-click Easy Grip system. Users can also connect their MP3 player to the aux input and rehearse using the Voice Cancel feature to blend in their voice. The 40 Series saxophones from Conn-[Conn-Selmer] are a first ever collaboration between Henri Selmer Paris and Selmer USA. All the horns feature a custom designed and manufactured Henri Selmer Paris neck and mouthpiece, along with a feature filled body. The black nickel and silver-plated versions both feature a silver-plated Henri Selmer Paris neck.
