I just got an MXR 10-band EQ pedal. I am not very good at finding settings however. Anyone know a good setting, for a classic rock tone (Zeppelin, Hendrix) because the distortion on my MG50 is a bit to heavy for me and I want a 70´s type distortion.

Thanks

wow though i had a good laff, that was kinda mean...anyways, honestly, just fiddle around with it, see what YOU like and what YOU think sounds good, no one can really tell you exact settings, just play around with it, when i got mine the biggest thing i played with was the combinations of the volume and gain knob, both different things but seems the same...sorry i couldnt be m ore help

I was thinking about the ValveKing 212. Is that a heavy metal amp or more 80's rock or what?

Thanks

1st off getting it 2x12 is a waste of money, go 1x12. second, the valveking has mixed reviews, its got a good amount of gain but many say it sterile and u can find better amp for your money. maybe the randall rg50tc? its frequently recommended here on UG but be mindful of its loudness, 50 watts tube is insanely loud and will kill ur ears much past 1-2. Unless you really need all that gain (which i doubt) check out the laney lc series.

Randall's are metal amps. That´s not the sound I'm looking for. Looking for a hard rock tone.

Righto, well in that case I'd suggest the Laney LC or VC series, basically the LC is the modern soud and the VC is vintage.
