Smile the songs tone thread

sorry if this has been done before, post the amp settings, effects and effect settings you use on songs, if you have a request for the settings of a song just post it and wait for someone who plays the song to post the settings.

Re: the songs tone thread

Every amp is different oje. (Oh Gee, Dad?) I could give you settings I use and they'd sound totally different on your amp. Part of developing your own sound is exploring your favorite settings and putting them to use.

Re: the songs tone thread

I quite like the idea of this thread, and while all amps sound differently, this might give you a good building block to experiment with.

Re: the songs tone thread

Everything 4-5 except reverb or gain. ya all amps are different so maybe you could expand your question/answers to effects,for example:for alot of years I thought Hendrix and Clapton were getting that creamy yet elusive lead tone from JUST the amp.I have now enjoyed the things a Fuzz offers to get in the ballpark

Re: the songs tone thread

Hmm...well, to kick this thread off, I've found a sound similar to George Harrison's album version of the Let it Be solo

Gain: 7
Treble: 7
Mids: 6
Bass: 5

It worked on a crappy practice amp, maybe it'll work for ya'll...

Re: the songs tone thread

^I know,I thought ojedad23 was yellin at me so I was being a smart ass,then he replies back very nice...yes I feel like a shitheel. Derailing your thread was not my intention.

So in the interest of this topic, I too am truly interested in hearing other peoples amp settings for their given songs!! I'll see if I can come up with one myself.
