 HOW TO OBTAIN PERFECT GUITAR TONE

 

 Anyone who has ever picked up a guitar for the first time has dreamed of sounding just like one of their favorite guitar hero's - and so begins a lifelong search for the "perfect tone."  I happen to run a website called MUST HAVE AMP SETTINGS, and the site gets between 500 to 700 visitors per day, many of those visitors are in search of just such a setting.  And some of them contact me directly, all asking the same thing, "I tried some of these amp settings, and they come close, but they still don't nail so and so's sound.  What am I doing wrong?"  Click on the link to read more........................................

PLEASE READ CONCERNING AMP SETTINGS

These amp settings are not my settings, unless so stated.  I complied them over a couple years, gathering them from different one's.  No, I have not tried any of these out myself,  but people who have played guitar for years have tried many of them out and have told me that not every one is correct, but many do come close and are not a bad starting point for people just starting out on guitar.  That, and the fact that I have recieved many emails from people thanking me for posting these, tells me people are using these and liking what they are hearing.

MUST HAVE AMP SETTINGS

Must have amp settings was complied by ThirdStone, these are not ThirdStone's amp settings, these were gathered over a two year period, many were emailed from friends, so some of these will be off.  But most come close enough to get someone who is just starting out on guitar a place to begin in dailing in a half decent sound on their amp.  The Toneport settings are mine.  So take Must Have Amp settings for a test drive and see if they are for you.
