So it seems people recommend 6666 for gain, low, mid, highs.
Up to this point i have been fine with that as a generic high gain tone. But i would like more character to it.
But i can't say i understand or can verbalize how the bright, crunch buttons shape the tone. Nor can i put into words what presence and resonance does.
In addition to this. Are there recommended settings for blues, zeppelin, or 80s hair metal? What tones are realistic for this amp?
I have some basic pedals od808, ce5 chorus, way huge delay, phase 90, evh f langer
I also just recieved an hd 500 but waiting on a power supply for it.
Any tips would be appreciated.
Boost the shit out of it. Put the gain around 3-4 (number, not o'clock). I liked to boost the mids a bit higher than the bass and treble. Find where you like those, boost the mids a bit, and hammer it with a boost. It is absolutely glorious that way.
Take that 808, put the gain all the way down, maybe a hair up, depending on how the pedal works, volume cranked, and tone at noon.
