hey, not sure if this should go here or in gear section but anyway

im tryin to get that straight foward punk sound NOFX uses (think the beginning of seperation of church & skate)

it sounds.....weird i dont know i cant describe it. its kinda clean, but still has distortion.
i want to say "rattle-y" it sounds like when you put a fresh set of strings on and it rattles against the frets and stuff....

i dont know help would be cool, but feel free to make fun as this is the stupidest thread ive ever made but i love that sound so i had to at least make an attempt

yeah i know they use a lighter distortion but i was just wondering if they use anything like reverb or tremolo to get that weird rattle sound

Some bands throw a really light reverb on-say around 2 or 3 on the dial. I've tried it and it isn't super noticable, but it is there. Check out the Ultimate Settings thread. It should have the exact settings you need.

My personal setting for a lighter, punk-ish sound is:

Gain: 6
Bass: 4-6
Contour (if you have it): 3-4
Treble: 8-10

I know it's not very specific, but try out different settings in that area and you should be able to find the sound you're looking for.

You could always look in the "ultimate settings thread" in the gear and accesories forum. They have lots of settings.
