Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

Yes.

That was such a helpful answer there lol. But I'm sorry, I'm not really sure what to recommend, there must be someone around here who knows though.

Santana sounds to me like he uses the clean channel and pushes it to overdrive to get his tones, probably some type of fender hotrod or somthing similar. A fender hotrod, peavey classic 30/50 both are very capable of that tone.

His tone is almost purely preamp OD. You can't pull that off with a Fender.

Try a Mesa Studio .22.

Yes, it is nearly purely preamp OD. I got a nice Santana-ish tone with my classic 50 and tubescreamer. And I got it with a strat. You just have to EQ it right, and the trick is what the tubescreamer is and what you have it set to. Even with humbuckers, you need a tubescreamer to get santana with a peavey classic.

Decent Santana tone for almost no money: EHX Big Muff into the clean channel of whatever amp you are using now, usually use a neck humbucker and roll the tone way down on it.

Otherwise you can get a Santana-like tone using a lot of different stuff. Santana's tone is in my opinion one of those tones where it really is more about how you play than what gear you use.

This is what the man himself uses though. Go through the stuff in the menu to get more info on how he uses it.

True.
I noticed that you need a good pick attack, not a wussy one. And I like using my neck pickup with the tone knob dialed up.

He uses an original Mark 1. It was actually a modded Fender Princeton. But, he also uses a Dumble Super Overdrive, so good luck getting one of those...

The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.
