Introduction

The Bose ToneMatch® microphone Presets add EQ and if you use both a microphone Preset and the TC-Helicon Tone feature, you may lower the gain before feedback. If you are using a T1® you can bypass a microphone Preset (see Bypass). If you are using a L1 Compact channel 1, you cannot bypass the microphone Preset.

If you are having issues with feedback try
