I have a low grade Peavey amp (backstage) and im trying to get the sound for Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin. How could i make it sound like it. If it helps, i have A Digitech RP50 Amp cabinet/modeler and effects pedal. Anyone know how i could reach jimmy's sound in the song? thanks

Im not 100% sure but I think Mr. Page used a soladano amp at the Zep Reunion. If that helps. and possibly a les paul.

sound is also affected by two major things i think your overlooking, the guitar itself, and your touch. It may be those things aren't quite right, but i'm sure in terms of effects, you might want to look up what type of equipment Page used for that song, but i would just mess around with the distortion to find the closest thing, since it's going to be kind of hard to completely recreate the sound

He probably used a wah pedal with the pedal pressed down. The sound Jimmy made I think is that he bent the A string on the 5th fret and played the open D string at the same time for that effect.

A gibson sg might help

Not an SG, a Les Paul or a Telecaster.

Nah, he used his custom Orange Heads and his Marshall heads (I think they're superleads)

for the solo the wah pedal is in the toe down position. google this stuff.

I use an overdriven tone, high mids and treble, also have a slight delay on. Gives me a really good classic rock tone, using the bridge humbucker aswell. For the solo, i turn my wah on and have it about 85% toe down (just at the sweet spot), really sounds like page's solo tone for this song.

fixed.

if you use a british voiced mid-gain tube amp (i think page used a marshall plexi) with a tubescreamer type overdrive, you'll get a nice zeppelin tone. I think the most important part of his tone is a cranked tube amp, to get power-amp overdrive.

Wrong again! He used more or less sotck AD30 heads and some of his Marshalls.
