Hey guys, I am wondering, can I get a tone at least somewhat near to how Carlos Santana sounds?
PRS SE Custom 24
Albion TCT 35

Yeah your DS1 and Squier Strat should get you really close

Not really...

Carlos's signature tone comes from humbucker-equipped guitars.
The DS1 is fizzy and harsh sounding, Carlos's tone is smooth and full.
And when it comes to amps... Even though the vypyr is a great practice amp, it still won't get you an accurate santana tone.
Call me Wes.

Well obviously I wasnt being serious.

I really think the Santana tone is the whole PRS/Dumble Overdrive Special tone, its really hard to emulate... I think the Vypyr and a decent full-bodied fuzz would get you somewhere close
