Blues Tone: Getting the Right Setup

Let's take a look at a 35 watt amp with a little different feel. The EL34 tubes give this amp a glassier tone. Even though it's glassy there is a noticeable bottom end on the sound as well.

Again, this isn't an amp you want in your bedroom or basement unless you live in an outdoor ampitheatre. However, if you do live in one this will be the best tone you could have. Here's a chance to preview the large amp that's out of the customer's reach in your local music store because of the price tag. No salesperson breathing down your neck, no weekend warrior playing Free Bird in the background.

My settings are:

Volume: 4

Bass: 6

Treble: 4

Brilliance: 2

Master Volume: 3

There a slight boost with an overdrive pedal that has the drive at 2.
