    I use the same settings on the red channels of my 6505 combo and 5153 mini:

    Pre/gain: 3.5
    Low: 6
    Mid: 6
    High: 6
    Res/pres: 6
    volume as needed

    I'll adjust the low and resonance depending on the volume I'm playing, but they normally stay right there around 6.

    I boost the front end with either a Maxon OD808 or OD9: drive at 0, tone at 6, volume maxed. Decimators and various effects complete the rigs, but the boosted amp is the core of my sound. I play the 5153 into a Mesa Traditional 4x12 and have messed around with using the combo speakers or the Mesa with my 6505.

    For the 6505 I like these settings on the lead and rhythm channel:
    Bass: 6
    Mids: 6
    Treble: 7
    Presence: 8
    Resonance: 8
    PreGain (Lead) : 3
    PreGain (Rhythm) : 6.5
    PostGain: as needed

    I put an OD out front and then a MXR 10 band EQ in the effects loop with these settings:

    So this is a simple set up that I'm using to get a dank ass Suffocation-esque tone

    Ampeg VH140c
    High -8.5
    Ultra Mid -3
    Low -2
    Gain - 8.5
    Level - to your taste, I never go above 3

    TS Mini (in the front)
    Tone - 11
    Level - 11
    OD - 0

    NS-50 (FX Loop)
    Thresh - 8
    Decay - 0

    all through a Vader 4x12

    Guitar:
    BC Rich JRV7 with DiMarzio D-activator in the bridge and Liquifire in the neck with a 1 meg potentiometer for the volume.

    How did I not know about this thread.

    Big bad tight metal (Keith merrowish tones)

    Evh5153 100w.
    Red channel
    Gain: 930 o'clock.
    Bass: 3oclock
    Mids: 2oclock
    Treble:noon
    Presence 330

    As 805 in front no gain level max. Mids 1oclock bass 1oclock treble 2oclock.

    Using a real bright keisel with stock lithiums. Makes for s real nice surgical metal tone.

    I have a Laney Ironheart 60 watt

    Gain: 6-7 (Guitar Dependent)
    Low: Noon
    Mid: Noon
    High: 2-3 o'clock
    Resonance: 2:30 oclock
    Presence: 2-3 o'clock (Guitar Dependent)

    I run a ts-9 with the gain at 9 o'clock the tone control at roughly 1-2 o'clock and the volume maxed.
    I also run an MXR ten band EQ in my effects loop. I cut the lowest lows and highest highs almost all the way off to reduce some of the super gritty sounding highs when playing with higher gain. I boosted the low and high mids a touch and the main mids a TON as it seems the Ironheart is a bit lacking in that department.

    The gain of this amp is REALLY smooth so having the gain set a touch higher at 7 actually doesn't effect your sound as much as it would say with a 6505+

    I run this to a 2x12 Mesa Recto Horizontal cab

    Black Metal amp settings? Stuff like MGLA, Morphesia, Thy Light, Advent Sorrow type tones.
    What would the settings be?
