Hey everyone:

Was looking to get a basic, distorted rock sound to build on out of my Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, and I honestly don't have the slightest clue how to EQ the amp and my pedals. I'm playing a Fender Telecaster with a Duncan HotRail in the bridge through an Ibanez TS9DX and an Ibanez AD9 Analog Delay. I read on these forums that putting the TS9 in front of the HRD is the way to go since it's drive channel is so crappy, but I've never really tried working on my sound before and I'm clueless as which knobs to turn.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
