heh, do you have down syndrome?

But start with this:

Distortion - Dime the gain, and find a decent amp model.Mesa, Bogner, Peavey, whatever they use. Easy.
Clear reverb - Find A good clean amp model, Fender, twin, tweed, some model like that. Then add a bit of reverb.
As for wah, just turn it on. Tweak the settings, noone here has the same gear as you, so you wont get an exact answer. Good luck.

so what ur telling us, ur too lazy to find ur own sound not everyboby has a ibanez amp or zoom pedal the only way ur going to figure this out is to scew around with the knobs on ur pedal and amp. and insert your name gave u the best start. heavy metal sound u have to have the gain between 7 and 10. then everything else u have to figure out ur self


sorry if i was a prick

hmm, i doubt any 10 watt amp could sound good, no offence ment.
its realy hard to find a amp that has the sound for you, im pretty sure alot of peeps here have had quite some trouble finding a amp with the sound they like.

My mom's friend found this old school particle board 10 watt amp in someone attic as they were helping clean out a place. THis thign was so old it had a tremelo nob on it. I can't find any information on this amp anywhere. It's basically got volume, tone and a treble knobs, is like 12 inches high and across and like 7 inches deep. For recording, I used to drape this cheapy 25 dollar radio shack mic over the top and lay it sideways on the little speaker, and cover it with a pillow. I used a ZOOM 505II (horrible pedal I know), but I tell you what, that recording session is still one of the best tones I have ever managed to come up with. So much in fact, I am tempted to by another 505 (of course mine broke, stupid input jack, soldered it back together so many times it couldn't be soldered any more), just to try and recreate it. I should post it sometime. You would be amazed at how good the distortion sounds from that 505 through that amp.
