US Double Vib (Fender® Twin Reverb® (vibrato channel))

US Double Vib, the Helix model of a Fender® Twin Reverb® (vibrato channel)

Recorded using a Stratocaster with Seymour Duncan SSL-1 neck pickup. Default amp and cab settings, spring reverb added.

The Fender Twin Reverb is one of the most popular guitar amps ever produced. It is widely used by players looking to maintain a clean tone while playing as loud as possible. The built-in spring reverb sounds great and adds to amp's iconic tone.

This model is for the amp's "vibrato" channel. Depending on the year of the amp, this channel will have an extra gain stage.


Double Worship

This patch is based on a Fender Twin, with some tremolo for modulation, a couple delay settings, and reverb. The drive section uses the Heir Apparent. Snapshot 1 is clean, SS 2 is drive and SS 3 engages the trem.

Vibrolux Kitchen Sink

The preset features a clean Vibrolux with two gain options; the EQ is set in front of the amp with a boost and there is a Kinky Boost between the amp and cab with a boost. It also has a transistor tape delay, chorus, and reverb - season to taste. I use this with my single coil guitars, but it should work fine with humbuckers. It's a sort of generic, catch-all preset.

Shimmering

A nice patch for fingerpicking and playing along with an acoustic guitar. Soundcloud demo recorded on a Les Paul with the bridge pickup. Might sound even better with single coils.

Thrice Dustin Kensrue

These are a few settings that I think are close to Dustin Kensrue from Thrice's current setup. I've heard him say on Twitter that he likes using the Double Amp model and Minotaur and messing with gain settings and snapshots for different tones. I decided to use the Heir Apparent instead for a little more gain. SS1 is a cleanish, modulated tone, SS2 is probably the more used high-gain setting, and SS3 is a modulated sound a la the intro of the song Hurricane.
