Anyone know how D.M. sets up his amps to get the tone and sound he got in his earlier days?

For a decent DM tone try diming the gain and highs, boosting the mids a bit, and cutting the bass.

Oh ok, good amp!

Yeah, check out that thread, it will give you some good starting points for Dave's tone, and a lot more people's tones also!

If he'd said anything different he'd have looked like a huge asshole
Cliff was there when he was fired
I'm sure he lumps him in too
