    I use EL34 Power Tubes. Tried both and liked this better. I can get the sound a bit more rounded, and less nasally sounding with them for some reason (which contradicts the preconception of 6l6s vs EL34s.

    Master section:
    Master - as high as tolerable
    Boost - as needed for solos and the like (for all 3 channels)
    Bright - 12:00
    Mid Cut - 07:00 (almost zero)
    Deep - 01:00

    Channel 1 - Djenty Djent and Lead:
    EQX off and Intense Mode
    Presence - just over 12:00
    Treble - the same
    Mid - just over 01:00
    Bass - 01:00
    Drive - 02:00
    Volume to match the other channels (all same volume)

    Channel 2 - Marshally/Voxy low gain overdrive:
    EQX off and Normal Mode (middle position between Intense and Thick)
    Presence - just under 01:00
    Treble - the same
    Mid - just over 03:00
    Bass - just under 02:00
    Drive - just over 10:00
    Volume to match the other channels

    Clean Channel (channel 3) - Fendery clean (great with pedals):
    EQX off and Soak Mode
    Presence - 12:00
    Treble - 02:00
    Mid - 02:00
    Bass - just under 12:00
    Drive - 10:00ish
    Volume to matched the other channels

    I also use various drive pedals on all 3 channels for further versatility. I like to think that I have an amp with 10 or so channels

    First post, so hi. I've got an amp settings/recording question, sorry if it's in the wrong thread.

    Here it is - as a bass player i've ended playing the guitar in a 4-piece grindcore band and we are going in studio for some recording. I'm not familiar with the amp there (playing on a marshall 8100 at the moment) - a dual rectifier with mesa 4x12 v30 cab, so i decided to ask you for some advice about the tone i'm looking for.

    So, the guitars are Schecter Damien Elite 6 with emgs and stoc ibanez rga32 as a backup. I'm looking for the sound of bands like Insect Warfare, PLF, Kill The Client - oldschool and raw. I'll point Insect Warfare's World Extermination as refference. The bass chain is Warwick Thumb 4 strings - Ampeg SVT 3 Pro - Ampeg 4x10 cab and maybe ODB distortion. Tuning is standart C.

    Been diggin' my 5150 lately, again lol

    Lead channel:
    Pre gain : 4.5
    Low : 6.5
    Mid: 2
    High: 5
    Post gain: 3-4
    Resonance: 4
    Presence: 6

    No boost, no extra bs, just straight up, crunchy metal gain for days. Roll the volume almost all the way off on the neck pickup and you have instant clean tone with no channel tap dancing. I also run an NS-2 in the loop for the preamp fizz, so its dead quiet :shred:

    Just found a nasty tone that i'm now in love with haha

    i wanted to share it with my SSO bros :)

    5150
    Lead Channel
    Pre Gain : 6.5
    Bass: 8
    Mid: 5
    High: 8
    Post : 3-4
    Resonance: 10
    Presence: 8

    These settings with my rig sound like a meaner JCM800 or JVM410H with an overdrive pedal maxed out, but with less harshness and more thump. Oh, and it cuts in a mix like a champ! :agreed: My guitar is loaded with DiMarzio D Activators and my cab is loaded with Eminence Governors. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as i do! :shred::shred::shred:

    This is an amp that got a lot of criticism when it came out but a set of JJ tubes is really all it needs to fix every issue these have stock. I use KT77s and really dig the tone and versatility i get. I also swapped the stock Wharfedale drivers for an Eminence Cannabis Rex and V128GB which sound really good with it.

    [​IMG]
    Channel 1 is like glass! Shimery and defined with Vox sweetness and clarity. Moderate EQ settings with a slight mid boost. reverb and tone cut to taste.

    Channel 2 is thick and ballsy British Roar, dime out all the controls, set reverb to taste, and i have the channel volume rolled back to about the same volume level as the clean. Fat switch engaged, bright pulled out because i don't have a tone knob on my guitars and that keeps it from getting shrill. everything you love about a cranked Marshall is right here, you wouldn't think so but it can get BRUTAL!

    [​IMG]
    Channel 3: I run the Bogner Red into the clean channel for a modern high gain. The variac is engaged as it keeps everything around the same volume, but the boost volume is set pretty high to push a lead out front. I use the B2 EQ shape, tight mode, and 20th anniversary structure. The mids here are slightly scooped just to prevent the "more of the same" effect.

    A touch of delay in the loop really makes it sound a lot bigger. It really starts to sing once you get the master to at least half way, but it's LOUD! Very affordable and very versatile rig.

    Pretty similar to others here: tight cutting metal tone.

    Peavey 6505+ on lead channel
    Pre-3
    low-5
    mid-3
    high-6
    res-8.5
    pres-8
    post-3.5

    this is with a maxon od808 up front with OD at 10 o'clock, tone at 10 o'clock, balance at 3 o'clock. DISCLAIMER: must use two noise gates, one on input and one in FX loop.

    use with valveking 4x12 with V30s

    Anyone else got any JCA 20/22 settings? I have a few of my own I'll share but wanna see other people's settings for reference since I never get good recordings with any settings I try. That and I just wanna see what everyone else uses for theirs.

    Is this thread dead? :deathm:

    If anyone still posts here, I'm picking up a Line 6 Pod XT Pro on friday & would love some settings to try out. Mainly looking for some modern tight metal tones.
