Hey all you punk fans out there! i was just wondering if someone could help me out here, i have been trying to get the "misfits sound" through my amp, and i am just having the hardest ****ing time, so if anyone has any suggestions or a way to help me or amp settings, that would be a HUGE help! thanks much :cool:

Good job, you win the award for vaguest question of the day!

Just turn the suck knob way up.

Only joking.

Try bringing down the mid, but I think this doesn't really belong in this forum.

why not? misfits not punk enough?

Nope. It's just better suited to a forum relating to the instrument than one relating to the music which you are trying to emulate with it.

It depends on which era. Early stuff just have the trebles high, distortion high, bass, mids high etc. - basically just your bog standard punk tone, but if you want later stuff just scoop the mids and add loads of compression, bass and gain. (horrible tone imo) If you muck around with the settings you will get something eventually.

use the crunch channel instead of lead channel if your amp has one. turn the reverb to 12 o clock and crank up the gain and mid

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the Misfits use bass amps instead of guitar amps?

turn everything up. put your amp in your mom's bedroom while she's sleeping at 1am, and get a wireless system, hook it up, start playing, and prepare to run as fast as you can.

or an alternative method, build a time machine, travel back to 1980, steal doyle's amp, use it.

Try stabbing your amp's speaker with a pocket knife.

(..then maybe try: Gain 9 / Bass 9 / Mid 6 / Treb 5 / Post Gain 5)

Guitar and bass have the same impedance.

The only difference is the frequency response, I think.

Put a bunch of distortion on and turn your tone knob on your guitar down.
