    First post, seems only right it should be here, as I am an amp settings addict!!!!
    Here is how I dial up my Blockletter 5150 for rehearsal...keep in mind I tweak for shows depending on venue etc.
    ENJOY!

    From left to right: (o'Clock)

    Green channel Pre: 2:00
    Crunch: In
    Bright: In
    Red Channel Pre: 7:00 (That's almost off...less than the number 1 on the dial !)
    Bass: 1:00
    Mid: 9:00
    Treb: 12:30
    Green channel Post: 10:00
    Red channel Post: 2:00
    Res: 1:30
    Pres: 2:45 (lol!! Touchy touchy knob!)

    Boss SD-1 in front,
    Tone: 11:30
    Gain: 8:00
    Level: 12:30

    Marshall 1960A's (x2 on the floor) w/celestion75's

    Green w/SD-1 for rhythm, Red with NO SD-1 for a surprising clean, Red WITH SD-1 for a slightly gritty OD, and a GE-7 in the loop strictly as a lead boost that sits on the amp.

    Amp switcher and SD-1 on the floor out front and I have at least 4 tones at my disposal...

    Here's a very saturated tone for a Mesa Dual rectifier 3channel head. Set the power switch to Spongy and use the tube rectifier.

    It does seem over saturated but I used my EMG 81-7 equipped guitar and I find that they are a bit dry and sterile so that's why the gain is up there close to 3o'clock.

    Even though this seems ultra saturated and maybe muddy, it is in fact very articulate because of the mids. I even sometimes use my Boss MT-2 (distortion 0, level a little less than half way) to push it over the edge and it sounds even more saturated but maintains a very articulate sound.

    Love this amp, hope someone will enjoy these settings too :hbang:

    My contribution is one that might not really help anyone, as I don't know a single person who has this amp, but oh well!

    Sludgy yet still fairly tight crust-infused death metal tone:

    Engl e504 Straight 100

    Bass - 11 o clock
    Mids - 1:30
    High - 12:30 or so
    Presence - 2:30ish
    channel vol - 11 o clock
    master volume - loooooow (this thing gets loud as fuck REALLY fast)

    ALL the switches (save for the channel volume override) are engaged on the channel

    all through an oversized 4x12 and VOILA.

    What I am running for my Framus as of right now, using g25 matching cab

    Lead Channel - Rhthym (The Lead channel has fuller mids/harmonically complex structure, and is overall more focused in my opinion) (using 0-10/non "O'clock")

    Gain 3-, Presence 1.5+/-, Volume 8 (This brings alot of the richness out. I think its clipping the v5/phase inverter. Whatever it is, its magical)
    Bass2.5+, Mid 8.5+/-, Treble 3.5+/-

    Crunch - Lead
    Gain 8.5, Presence 3-, Volume 9+/-
    Bass 3, Mid 10, Treble 2-

    + = A tad over
    - = A tad under
    +/- = somewhere in the area (read as suffix, ish. Example 8.5ish)

    Nice chunky, but not fuzzy rhythm tone. Just hit delay and boost for leads:D
    NB: This head is reeeeally bass-heavy, hence the low bass setting and high trble and mids on my setting

    Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster - 4 Channel All Around Setup

    Here's one I personally like for my Roadster:

    Output - 11'o clock
    Solo - 12'o clock

    Channel 1 - Breathing, articulate Tweed cleans
    Mode - Tweed
    Master - adjust according to your playing volume, but make sure it is not set any higher than 12'o clock
    Presence - 1'o clock
    Bass - 2'o clock
    Mids - 10'o clock
    Highs - 1'o clock
    Gain - 12'o clock

    Channel 2 - Gritty Cleans (or Blues Lead with solo switch engaged)
    Mode - Fat
    Master - same as channel 1
    Prescence - 11'o clock
    Bass - 11'o clock
    Mids - 1'o clock
    Highs - 2'o clock
    Gain - 2'o clock

    Channel 3 - Chunky, tight distortion for rhythms (and if you got a tube screamer awesome leads)
    Mode - Vintage
    Master - adjust to playing volumes
    Prescence - 2'o clock
    Bass - 1'o clock
    Mids - 2'o clock
    Highs - 12:30
    Gain - 1:30 - 2:30

    Tube screamer settings - Keep everything flat and just turn gain up a tad, depending on how much gain you need for your leads

    Channel 4 - Screamming leads
    Mode - Modern
    Master - same as Ch. 3
    Prescence - 12'o clock
    Bass - 11'o clock
    Mids - 1'o clock
    Highs - 2'o clock
    Gain - 2'o clock
    Solo switch engaged

    These settings should give you some great sounds depending on what guitar you use :hbang:

    Amp : Peavey 6505+
    Tight, clear, articulate and cutting metal tones.
    Lead Channel
    Pre : 10:00 - 11:00
    Low : 12:00
    Mid : 1:00
    High : 1:00
    Resonance : 12:00
    Presence : 2:00
    Post : 11:00

    I use a Mesa 4x12 Recto cab. V30's.
    Works great for most places, adjust carefully for different environments.
    Run the tubes warmer, while keeping the gain low and the master high, with a strong pick attack will keep it rather big sounding whilst keeping clear from the low preamp gain.
    Doing this also keeps the fizz low.

    Anybody got some settings for an ENGL Savage 120?

    This is the setup im running:

    Savage 120 through an OS Mesa 4x12
    I use a Maxon OD9, ISP Decimator, Boss NS-2, and Boss tuner. I sometimes run a Line 6 Echo Park and Boss Super Chorus in the loop but not much though. The type of tone im looking for is something like The End of Heartache album by Killswitch Engage, This Is Exile by Whitechapel and Jeff' Loomis' Zero Order Phase. Chunky and saggy, but tight, clear, and smooth.

    The guitars i use are a Parker Fly Deluxe with stock pups, Alder-bodied Jackson Dinky with 18 volt modded EMG 85 in the bridge and 60 in the neck, and an Ibanez S7420FM with Dimarzio D-Activators.

    Im also open as to what tubes i should equip the Savage with since imma change them soon.

    Thanks in advance everybody.

    This sounds sick.

    6505+

    Lead Channel
    Pre: 5.5
    Low: 6.75
    Mid: 6.25
    High: 5.75
    Post: 2.75

    -Boss MT-2 with rectifier diodes removed(bypassed)
    Level: 12:00
    High: 2:00
    Low: 10:45

    (Adjust slightly to add back bass that was removed before the preamp with the MT-2)

    -BBE Sonic Stomp
    Lo: 6.5ish
    Pro: 6.5ish


    You need the post up for this to sound right. I think 2.75 ~ 3 is a sweet spot. It's way too loud so I attenuate with a THD Hotplate 4ohm. The cab is a Marshall 1960A, and my guitar is a RG7321 w/ Invader or Jackson KV-2 tuned to C-std. I'm also using a Boss NS-2 in the infamous x-configuration.
