Arctic monkeys settings

Post by Erosvell » Fri May 17, 2013 11:42 pm

I have recently purchased an AD30TC and just realised that arctic monkeys used to use one I really like Alex's clean does anyone have an exact setting he uses or a similar one because I can't find anything anywhere I managed to find the wombats but can't find Alex's
I also have an American stratocaster
Ps what channel also ?

I thought he used a LP custom for his cleans?

And strat for dirt, with, I've read somewhere, a RAT type peadal for fatter parts?

Dude, if he used that amp, then you probably will get a close enough sound...

But exact settings? Forget it.

Realize that an amplifier will sound very different even just by changing your position relative to the cab. And you are generally not going to hear the same thing that the microphone did.

Just play the damn thing. Who cares if you sound like Alex or not. He probably sets the gain very low and the master high enough for a good clean but not to the point the amp is distorting.
