hey!

ok...first...you might think this sound is the worst ever(I'm talking about the guitar sound in this movie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUMr2-8V2-g&feature=related)
but I like it...idk why.
Well...I have the same pickup in a strat so...that's not a problem.
I have a peavey VK and a BBE crusher pedal.
Maybe you can help me with how to get a similar sound?

my guess would be to use a compressor, that's not really a hard tone to nail.

Get a few Mesa/Boogie half-stacks and turn them up.

It's quite a clean sound - probably more power amp overdrive, so you need to turn up your volume and keep gain at around 3.

3 easy steps to get that sound:

1) Start a really ****ty band
2) Turn your amp up really loud
3) Sing through your nose

The sound of the guitar is irrelevant.

haha, only kidding. I'd start with gain around 3 and start to pull some mids out maybe. Keep highs above 6.
