Hey guys,

can anyone recommend any setting for 80s rock, preferably like BJ Slippery When Wet or New Jersey, or aldo novo if anyone has heard of him??? Anyway something like that cheers. I'm using JMP-1 and 9100 and rocktron Intellifex. If not how where I could get my JCM800 modded for this kind of sound. (I'm in the UK) Cheers

I sometimes use this setup:
Guitar going into a stompbox (It doesnt matter what, but as long as it doesnt **** the sound up, I usually use an old Zoom player 3030 with the gain on about half- 3/4). this then goes into my Marshall which I drive to about half way, with the bass on about 4/4.5 , the middle on full, and the treble on about 5.5- 6. i usually use some reverb also.
