So the resulting note is 3 notes an octave apart from each other played at once. It gives a real thick kinda dark dirty tone. You can control how much of the 3 notes that you want in the mix. Jerry used it a lot in conjuction with other effects - so it's maybe not as overt an effect as the mutron was - but it was used often. He used it together with the mutron during feel like a stranger, used it alone or with distortion during the end jam of looks like rain and lots more.
