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.

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.

Acoustic guitar

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.

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!

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.
