hey everyone!

I was wondering, what settings should I (and other people) be using for ska playing?
cause me and my band wrote 2-3 songs that are something like ska-punk but I don't like my clean ska sound. Any help?

thanks in advance.

edit: oh btw, I'm looking for something Reel Big Fish sounding.

Get him into blues. Lyrical depth-not so much. But it is groovy and it is black people's music so if he doesn't enjoy then he is not a true black person.

Is this a serious question? Ska settings are cut lows boosted mids and maxed highs.
