Van Halen One for Stomp

This is a simple patch for achieving a close approximation of the sound on the Van Halen 1 album. Reverb is on the right and more direct signal on the left which is like the album. You can simply move the move the reverb up out of the path 2 back into path 1. I have a video with me going through various songs from the album. In the video I am using my EB MM Axis that is about 20 years old now. The pickups in that guitar are amazing.

Angus Young

It's a bit more juiced than Angus's tone on the albums, but it's a great  AC/DC tone.  Try to use mild PAF-type humbuckers to get close to his tone. Long live ACDC!

Mike Ness Tone

This is the HX Stomp version of this tone - there's also a version for the Helix available here by selecting the Helix as your device. This is a very good approximation of Mike Ness's Tone on the Social Distortion albums. The recipe is iconic - a dirt pedal into a Bassman head, then into Marshall cabinets. The sample clip was played on a legit Les Paul with P90 pickups - you need this to get the real deal.

Marshall Tone for Boss Katana 50

Use this patch by plugging straight into a Katana 50. Use the acoustic channel on the amp, and keep all Katana settings at noon, and adjust to taste. This patch uses the "Brit Plexi Jump" Helix model for a nice juicy Marshall roar thru your Katana.

Ambient Rock

The patch has three presets which are for switching sounds while soloing. The first preset is a light overdrive, the second light overdrive plus echo, and the third light overdrive plus distortion. See the example below for a soloing example. I also added a noise gate to help reduce the noise.
