    How to get a usable sound from the Framus Cobra with the notch (mid scoop) switch on:

    (o'clock)
    Ch. vol 3
    Pres 11
    Gain 3
    Bass 8-9
    Mid maxed
    Treble 12
    Deep 12

    This will make the mids shift higher instead of getting a ridiculously scooped tone. It will be a bit scooped still though.

    My settings are marked in RED and sometimes change depending on the what the room/venue sounds like.
    Ran in stereo to 2 Recto std 4x12's (V30/C90 x-patterned speakers)

    6L6 multi-watt
    100 watts on all channels, bold, diode setting on all 3 channels
    Ch 1 - Clean mode
    Ch 2 and Ch 3 Vintage mode
    EL34 multi-watt
    100 watts on all channels, bold, recto tracking on ch 1, diode setting on ch2 and ch 3 (often switch these all to Rectifier Tracking)
    Ch 1 - Clean mode
    Ch 3 and 3 - Vintage mode

    Typically use Ch 3 for rhythm, and Ch 2 for leads, since channel 2 is a little bit "warmer" with slightly more pronounced mids..
    Boost leads with a Maxon OD808 Gain - off-10:00, tone - 9:00, Balance - 2:00

    Sometimes switch ch2 and ch3 on both heads to 50 watt mode if we are playing an extremely small venue. I tend to keep them in 100 watt mode when I can though, it just seems to punch a little more than 50 watt mode, although both modes sound good. The difference between modes is not as drastic as some amps I have tried with 50/100 watt switches.

    Bass: 5/10

    ENGL Fireball >> Extreme, brutal, punchy, tight low end
    Boost: None

    Gain: 4/10
    BrightSwicth: On
    Bottom switch: depens on your guitar and pickups.

    Bass: 4/10
    Mids: 8/10
    Treble: 7/10
    Presence: 6/10


    Simple, but yet very brutal sound.. Perfect for Death metal and metal with low tunings. This amp has a lot of gain, 4/10 is more than good enough for brutal sweetness, good leads and clean sounds.

    Keep in mind, these are my gigging settings, so these settings may or may not work well at bedroom volumes.. I mostly list 0:00-0:00 on some knob settings as adjusting the knobs within those ranges can yield results that are just as good depending on taste.

    Settings are in "o'clock" format, obviously.
    Channel 3 Modern mode
    Bold
    Diode tracking
    100 watts
    Gain: 11:00-11:30
    Bass: 9:00-10:30
    Mid:1:00-2:00
    Treble:12:00 or below, adjust to taste
    Presence: 9:00-12:00, again, this is purely a taste thing, mine is set to 9:00.

    TS9 settings:

    Gain: minimum or a hair above
    Tone: 12:00-1:00
    Level:dimed

    Have fun!

    once I pick up some EL34's to throw in this i'll post some new settings.

    until then, this is my "note to self" for recto settings. dialed this in fairly quickly.

    Here are my settings for my newly modded Powerball. Seriously, all you need to do is buy one 12AT7 preamp tube and put it in the V6 spot. Costs 13 bucks and takes 20 minutes and you'll end up with a brand new amp. Goodbye compression, hello 4 usable channels.

    All the settings count the ticks on the knobs from 1 to 11 with 6 being "noon".

    Top row:

    Gain: 3.5
    Bright: On
    Bottom: On
    Bass: 11
    Mid: 6
    Tr. Clean: 11
    Tr. Crunch: 10
    Vol. Clean: 11
    Vol. Crunch: 6
    Presence: 9
    Depth Punch: 9

    Clean sound:
    - Crystal clear. No breakup whatsoever. Good for full chords, strumming, anything. I use this sound a lot, and it's important to me that it not sound weak compared to the more gainy channels. The huge difference in channel volumes makes up for the built-in step in gain that separates ch1 and 2. They all end up "sounding" the same volume in the end with these settings, it's merely a matter of not overdriving any inputs.

    Crunch sound:
    - More of a dirty clean sound. Starts to break up. Sounds vintage and "pure" with single coils. I have an MXR overdrive on my pedalboard to drive this channel into a "2.5th" gain stage. Vintage-y hard rock sound. Very true to the tone of the instrument

    -------------------

    Bottom row:

    Gain: 10
    Ch3 low: Off
    Ch4 low: Off (sometimes on, your call)
    Bass: 5
    Mid open: 11
    Mid focused: 11
    Treble: 5
    Vol 3: 4
    Vol 4: 4
    Mid button: Open
    Master vols: To taste

    Ch3 sound:
    - This is where the mod really shines. Instead of this being my uber metal channel and 4 being completely useless, this is now a really rocking channel. I like tons of mid bite in my sound and tons of note definition. I use the mid focused button on the z-5 (which makes a mid spike and volume boost) for my solo sound.

    Ch4 sound:
    - This channel more or less sounds how the "stock" 3rd channel used to sound, but a tad more open. I'm pleased with it as well, as it offers a built-in step up in gain to go from my rock channel to the metal one. I use the same solo button on this one too.

    -------------------
    Notes:

    I see that posting this somehow ruined my formatting. All the info is still there though

    This amp is much more versatile than it seems (or was apparently even meant to be..). Imagine if changing the strings on your guitar opened up an entire world of different tones available to you....it's that easy! People of the internet! I urge you...mod your powerballs!

    Hey guys.

    New here and I've only been playing guitar for a few years. I recently got a new spider IV 75 watt amp. I cant afford anything redonk expensive cause I'm a percussionist normally and hopefully getting my degree soon.

    Does anyone know any presets for the spider amp that sound similar to periphery or bulb style? My guitar atm is an Ibanez 350dx in Drop C. Any help would be awesome.:yesway:

    Clean [boost off, open, 100w] *Depending on what I'm playing, I mess w/ the voicing switch*
    Volume - preference
    Treble - 6
    Middle - 3
    Bass - 6
    Presence - 8
    Depth - 6

    Rhythm [boost on, wood, burn, more, 100w]
    Gain I - 6
    Gain II - 2
    Volume - preference
    Treble - 5-6 [depends on my mood]
    Middle - 2-3 [depends on guitar/tuning]
    Bass - 4
    Depth - 4.5-5

    Lead [boost on, wood, blow, more, 100w]
    Gain I - 6
    Gain II - 2
    Volume - preference
    Treble - 4-6 [mood]
    Middle - 3-4 [guitar]
    Bass - 4
    Presence - 3.5-4.5

    I mess with the voicing and fat/open switch on the clean channel as well as the scoop/wood switch on the gain channels. Might also mess with the voicing switches on the gain channels sometime soon. I have before, but that was with passives and an SD-1.

    Wylde OD
    Volume - Sometimes 7-8, sometimes 10. Depends my mood I guess.
    Tone - 4-5 [4 w/ H-500 in Drop C, 5 w/ H-1001 in Drop B]
    Gain - 0

    I'm using EMGs with this. With passives [especially if they are less output than the Distortion, like the Custom, etc], without the Wylde OD, the tone is pretty 80s and a little on the lighter side, sorta like hair metal with more teeth. With the EMGs and Wylde OD, it's a fucking metal beast. Also use a Dime Crybaby from Hell and an MXR Black Label Chorus. Kind of a fan of Jim Dunlop products. Not the strings though.
