Getting AC/DC tone from the HT-40, here's my settings

Postby Trikke64 » Mon Dec 27, 2010 2:40 pm

I tried to get as close as possible to the "Angus sound", and here's my opinion
and settings : (played on a Gibson SG Standard).

HT-40 settings :

Channel : Clean
Pre-amp Volume : 25/100
Tone : 60/100
Reverb : 15/100
Master Volume 30/100

Effect used : Fulltone OCD 4 ( not using the effects loop, but directly into the amp's input)

Fulltone OCD settings :

Volume : 75/100
Drive : 30/100
Tone : 30/100

What are your opinions and settings to get the AC/DC sound on the HT 40?

Some of you will say :" if you want an AC/DC sound, then buy a Marshall.." OK, I already have an 1959SLP
on an 1960A cabinet, and use the Fulltone OCD on it. It gives also very good results for playing, of course...
but for recording, I wanted a sound that would need little or no EQ to get it on tape.. and the results
are a lot beter with the HT-40 than the "too big" 1959 ...

I'll never understand why people want to dial in other guitarists tone. Be creative and dial in your own tone! Or else be destined to a life of playing covers!

Developping a personal style and tone is very important. But from time to time imitating
well known guitar hero's sound for use at home is ... fun. And intresting as well.

As a guitar player you shouldn't only have ears for your own sound/style, but also listen attentively
to other players ... Listen, learn, develop, experiment etc ...

The cool thing about emulating the Young bros tone is that they are playing with so few effects, if any, just cranked up vintage Marshalls with humbuckers and filtertrons.

Not all of us get to blast a 200w Mrshall Major or Super Bass, so experimenting with these new lower power (and obtainable) amps is enjoyable.

It's also a good benchmark for creating your own tone, a starting point. Besides, their tone has evolved over the years.
