How to Adjust Settings on a Guitar Amplifier Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question... Q: I would like to ask you how to set up amplifiers for different purposes. I use a Fender Stratocaster and an Epiphone hollow body electric guitar I use a Fender Deluxe 50 Watts all tube amp. I also have a Line 6 POD which I use for effects. Can you explain to me how to approach setting my amp bass, treble, middle, presence, master levels. 1). In order to get a clean bright jazzy sound like George Benson, or Wes Montgomery with my Epiphone? 2). To get a clean country style rhythm sound with my Stratocaster? 3). To get a distorted or overdrive sound for a guitar solo similar to; for example Foreigner, or David Gilmore? 4). Also would be interested in other sounds such as metal. - Thanks, David, Queens NY. A: Pursuing sounds between; amps, guitars and effects units can be a long and often frustrating journey. And, just when you think you've got that perfect sound at home... You'll get to the gig and your amp could mysteriously sound terrible. In this video I will discuss various common settings for; Country, Jazz, Rock and Metal. The complete lesson article for this video will be available on the Creative Guitar Studio website shortly.
