^ I can't imagine you would have any trouble with that amp.

What are you not getting out of it exactly? What guitar are you using? No pedals right? Just the guitar into the amp I would seriously put all the amp controls on 12 noon (including the gain). Then put the Master Volume on 9 am or so. Maybe pull back the mids just a bit but it should be pretty easy to dial in.

An amp 'voice' is often used to describe an American amp tone or a British amp tone. The American amp tone was built around Fender and then Mesa. These amps typically emphasize a lot of low end and high end (Bass and Treble). The British amp tone was built around Vox and Marshall and these amps emphasized a lot of mids and often had more cut and buzz. Old school punk and the British Invasion would characterize these tones well.

Voicing options on an amp can also be things like bright, dark, deep, mid cut, etc.

Jazz as a genre is an American creation.

So see if that helps. Does your amp have a 'Fender' amp model?


I got rid of the Roland amp. after a few days I found it cold and sterile. In a few days a new Fender Hot Rod Deluxe arrives. I hope I will be happier with the sound.

Anybody know the effects used in The Joker and the Thief by Wolfmother? I know they use the small stone effect but what other effects can i use to imitate or sound similar to that sound? I have a Marshall Mg30CFX, Zoom G3 and a Gibson Les paul.

I got a nice modern rock setting using my Marshall MG and Roland Cube amps and an Epiphone SG.

Bass:2 or 3
Mid:7 or 8
Treble:5 or 6
Gain:5 or 6

Just something basic. For me it works for all styles of music. It's heavy and bright and it works well with rock music. You can play thrash with it too if you turn up the bass to a 4 or 5. Maybe add a bit more treble if you want more highs.

I need a Jim Root/Stone Sour or Five Finger Death Punch setting

I'm playing through a Peavey 6505 and a Boss MT-2 (Don't be dissing on my pedal, I love it), I've been trying and trying (Came close a few times) but alas...I can't succeed

I would suggest keeping your bass around a 5 or 4. Turn up your mids to a 6 or 7. Maybe 8 then slowly adjust the treble around a 4, 5, or 6. Gain will depend on how much distortion you want but I would just keep the gain at a 5.

I'm doing a cover of Laid to Rest by Lamb of God, and I want to get a good tone for the lead guitar behind the spoken word part ("If there was a singe day I could live..."). So I found a video sample from Jammit (If you don't know what Jammit is, look it up! ):

What is really going on here? I know they use Mesa Mark IV's for their tone, but do you guys think they're using any effects in that particular part? Also, it would be nice if someone posted some EQ suggestions for this part (with presence too). The amp I'm using is a Peavey 6505+ 112 combo with the speaker swapped to a V30. I'm boosting with Maxon OD808.

Raise your mid and treble. Not too high though. Lower the bass a lot. Don't touch the gain or presence. Leave them at the middle. I've played that song in and out for almost 5 years. The tone is stuck in my head. If you're going to do rhythm, don't raise the bass anywhere above 5. Maybe the tone (for the lead) has to do with where you're playing the frets. That part is played somewhere around the 12th fret on the D string. And make sure you're in Drop D (you probably already know that, but just a precaution). That's my tip.

Trying to get a decent tone for either 80's type of metal or Extreme Metal (Melodic Death Metal) out of a Krank Rev 1 and a Bad Monkey.

Have Blackouts in my guitar and I can't really find anything usuable. Bit lifeless, so help plox!

Very similar to one of my above posts. Raise your mids, don't move your bass past 5, and slowly adjust your treble around the halfway mark. If you feel you need more of a punch, raise the treble and gain. Don't raise the gain too much though. You'll get unwanted frequencies unless you really wanna add some noise. And when I mean noise, I'm referring to grindcore stuff. And I don't think you want that in melodic death metal or 80's metal.

That's pretty close. Sounds really good.


I also got a good Disturbed/Dan Donegan sound:

Gain: 10
Bass: 4
Mid: 3
High: 10
Presence: 9

Haven't seen one for him since I've been looking through this thread

Nice. Don't turn down those mids though. That'll cut your guitar out of the mix. Very guitarist should know that. Never turn down the mids. Mids always go up but not too much, depending on your amp. Especially when playing live. Never turn the gain up either. You'll just get unwanted frequencies, unless your amp doesn't pack a lot of distortion (in which case turn up the gain). Bass should never go past 5 or 6 unless you really want a muddy sound. Same for treble. If it goes up too high, it'll make a lot of ear piercing sounds, like when your 7 year old daughter screeches in your ear or when you scrape something against a chalk board real hard (you get the idea). But more treble gives it a better punch. So the amount of treble you want is up to you. Just follow those basic rules. You're on the right track with what you're doing. Just use your ears and play with the music. Just follow all those small basic rules and you're gucci.

^ Thanks for all that you are doing to try to help. This thread is pretty much a dead end without people like you!

You probably won't either as posting settings are somewhat pointless.

Why? Because everyone's rig/environment is different.

Don't get me wrong, we are thankful for all the postings in the OP's and we are glad that they have helped people but the real help comes from people like Leonid who take the time to try to give individual advice based on a persons gear/needs.

We have been discussing creating a new Ultimate Settings thread that may help in this area.

Please do create that thread. I will contribute anything I have to it. Especially for those who are looking for hardcore/metalcore settings (the original and older bands I mean).
