oh yea. not really an artist's setting, but i have a setting for any fender tube amp to get a fender '60s blackface clean tone.

treble 6
mid 3
bass 2

and it works. it doesn't work too well with marshalls and voxes, but definitely worth a try. fender tweeds, reissues, hot rods, they do well with the blackface setting. sparkle clean.

setting for their latest songs, for small amps with an MT-2 effects pedal

settings will vary from amps and guitars and tunings, but the pedal settings are pretty right on, just tweak the amp and make the MT-2 settings very little, you'll have to do a few hair adjustments to find the good spot

MT-2 Settings

Level---9:00 ;lower means higher amp vol which intern gives better sound for small amps

High---1:00 to 1:15

Low---Max

Middle---2:45 (just under 3:00)

Mid Freq---3:05 (hair over 3:00)

Distortion---1:30 to 2:00


Amp settings


Volume---1.4

Gain---3.5

Master Volume---1.9

Treble---7.7

Middle---1.9

Bass---10 (max)

Anyone got a decent John Petrucci tone, both rhythm and lead? I know there is a preset on the first page, but it didn't really hit the nail on the head. Also a Satriani setting would be nice.

I use a B-52 AT-212. The specs as far as the knobs and whatnot go are below.

• All-Tube Signal Path
• Tri-Mode Rectifier: Tube - Class A or AB,
• Solid-State - Class AB
• Overdrive Channel: Gain 1 and Gain 2
• Each with Independent Master Volumes,
• 3-Band EQ, Assignable Contour Control
• Clean Channel: Master Volume, 3-Band
• EQ and Bright Switch
• Global Controls: Volume, Low-Res
• (Resonance) and Reverb

Not to sound nit-picky, this list has helped me tons, but Randy Rhoads played for Ozzy Osbourne, not Black Sabbath.

Other than that, this list is awsome!


Shoot, I should have fixed that, about 50 different people mentioned it in the old thread.

Would you mind fixing that Jof?

PinkEdit: ^If the setting doesn't sound perfect right off the bat (which it probably won't), just tweak the settings on your amp. These settings are designed to be guidelines, not perfect for everything, so don't ask for one if it's already on there.
Also read Xifr's post on the previous page.

Another thing, there's a Satch setting on the first page. Ctrl+F please.

petrucci should be like, the first one on the list. If you use a Roadking, like myself, the settings on the list will give you Petrucci's exact tone for Train of Thought, Octavarium, and Systematic Chaos.

I would use the solid state, Overdrive 2, crank the amps master but keep the channel volume very low. Petrucci uses a light scoop for rhythms, and more bass, less treble for leads. You might want an overdrive pedal. I find the B-52s really lacking in liquidy gain.

Okay so i'm quite new to guitarplaying, and i see 'gain' alot. But I was wonderering, is 'gain' on the 'crunch' or on the 'clear' of my Spider III 15 watts?
Just asking because if it's on the crunch, it looks like not many players play on the clean channel ...
#56
i'm not quite sure if i get what you mean, but clean means that it's not distorted, just a clean signal.
gain at some point delivers what they call 'crunch' yeah. so thzt means the gain is used on your crunch channel.

and no metal players don't use the clean channel much, but people like me do.

Thanks man, I'll give it a shot. And yeah, I have an overdrive pedal that I use. Also, I actually like the B-52's gain. Really smooth sounding. However yeah it does kind of lack the "chugga chugga" sound unless you're using an overdrive.

I finally found it! The setting for Metallica's "Kill Em All" Album.
Gain: 8
Bass: 8.5
Middle: 1.5
Treble: 10

That should get you the right crunchy fuzz sound.

use my settings for Depised Icon, but thats only for low watt amps with MT-2 but when I get my tube amp which is very soon I'll hook yah up with dead on settings to your band, but its worth a try with my settings on the previous page

I cannot believe there isn't an incubus tone up here. Help me out here, I'm trying to find my own and if i do I'll post it but it think it's going to take me a while.

Alter Bridge, maybe?

Does anyone have an Izzy Stradlin (GN'R) setting?

i think his tone in GNR is similar to Angus Young's tone, cranked marshall of course, with a bit more gain.

like:
cranked JTM45 Gain (sort of deep purple ish)
lots of crunch EQ:
Treble 8
Mid 8
Bass 5

try that. les paul and bridge pickup. marshall amp would work. with the bridge pickup, u might just be able to get it with all the knobs at 5. haha.

I see how they both sound similar, Izzy uses a Bassman head into a cab that has Celestions on the top and EV's on the bottom.

Anyway, those settings work great. Big kudos to you my friend.

i thought Izzy was a les paul marshall guy hahaha. nvm then.

for stevie ray vaughan, scoop the mids. not totally scoop, but scoop it more than when you play the blues.
treble 10
middle 4 (7 if u don't have a tubescreamer)
bass 9
and use a tubescreamer to boost the mids.
should sound a little flat, but with accentuated treble and mids still.

these settings can get muddy on some amps though. if your amp does, just bring back a notch or two from each control.
