What sort of settings do you use to get a good punk sound on your guitar and amp?
#2
Someone will most likely come here within 10 posts and say 'Volume 0' and crap like that.


Seriously though I usually find that this sounds good:

Treble: 9
Mid: 4
Bass: 3

With distortion sounds good.

My former co-guitarist had his like:
Gain:5
Treble:7
Contour:4
Bass:3
And he had a distortion pedal turned very low so it sounded like he had Gain at 7, but it gave him a different tone he liked. We were a screamo band, so he wrote and played pop-punk riffs and melodies, and I addd distortion, feedback, and an oft-out-of tune guitar to turn it all to shit. My amp setting:
Gain:4.5
Treble:7
Contour:4
Bass:5
Reverb:2
I used a Digitech Bad Monkey overdrive so it sounded like I had my gain at 8, but unlike my bandmate, since he had a dist. pedal and I had an overdrive, I kept my Marshall's natural tone. I used it also to switch to a semi-distorted to really distorted sound when it's a fast change and I don't have time to roll the volume pedal up.

I NEVER bought an amp or distortion pedal since I got the combo crap one that came with my guitar....good lord.

I wouldn't recomend a strat to anyone, but that's just me. So what he said, but instead maybe a Bille Joe Les Paul Junior would work.

You can use a pretty wide range of sounds for pop-punk. Pretty much any distortion sound works, from fairly light overdrive to a metal sound.
