    Customer has a Fifty/CL. Trades it in for a Sig:X. Likes it but misses some of the CL vibe - of course - 3 channels, 100W, KT88s, etc, etc...

    Here's my shot at getting the Fifty/CL vibe happening on the Sig:

    P.S. The Sig is definitely more "dense" in the low mids than the CL. Keeping the Bass low decreases the low end density while turning the Depth up enhances the CL low end resonance (speaker reaction). It may seem counter-intuitive...well, yeah, it is counter-intuitive. C'est la vie (all knob settings refer to the clock face hour hand):

    Rhyrhm Channel

    “LIVE”
    Gain I – 12
    Gain II – 5
    “BOOST”
    ‘MORE”
    “40”
    Master – 10
    Treble – 1
    Middle – 11
    Bass – 12.30
    Presence – 4:30
    Depth - 3

    Remember - clock face, not 1-10

    I was messing with a Orange OR50 and found a crunch sound I liked. I them ran the OR50 & Sig X into identical V30 cabs ..... Using a Radial Big Shot ABY I got the sounds as close as possible. It was difficult to tell the difference.
    The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.

    Started up with a new band and these are the settings I'm using currently for this project.

    Clean

    Clean Channel:
    Bloom or Brite
    Norm
    100W
    Open
    Volume - 10:00
    Treb - 1:00
    Mid - 10:00
    Bass - 2:00
    Pres - 1:00
    Depth - 2:00

    I basicly turn up the Volume till I get distortion and back it off a bit to keep it clean. I then can turn on the Boost to get some overdrive. The guitar volume is very usefull to get different amounts of distortion.
    Often I back off the Treble and Presence a bit depending on the cab and guitar.

    Crunch
    (Notice how similar it is to the setting above)

    Clean Channel:
    Brite
    Boost
    40W
    Fat
    Volume - 11:00 ~ 2:00
    Treb - 1:00
    Mid - 10:00
    Bass - 2:00
    Pres - 1:00
    Depth - 2:00

    Heavy Crunch

    Rhythm Channel:
    Burn
    Gain I - 3:00
    Gain II - 5:00 / full
    Boost On
    More Mode
    100W
    Master - 9:00 ~ 10:00
    Scoop
    Treb - 3:00~4:00
    Mid - 9:00 (or higher)
    Bass - 3:00
    Pres - 2:00 ~ 4:00
    Depth - 2:00~4:00

    1)From here I change both at the same time to *Live* and *Wood* for a different midrange voice.

    2)Adjusting Gain I and the Midrange (8-11 or higher) on these settings and the Lead setting below.... Ton of control right here.

    3)The Midrange is set low... But the Fryette amps have plenty of midrange .... Take my word for it - it's going to cut in the mix with the band. The other guy in my band is using a Marshall half stack very midrange heavy.

    Lead ...

    Lead Channel:
    Blow
    Gain I - 3:00
    Gain II - 5:00 / full
    Boost On
    More Mode
    40W ~ 100W
    Master - 9:00 ~10:00
    Wood
    Treb - 3:00~4:00
    Mid - 8:00 ~ 9:00 (or higher)
    Bass - 2:00
    Pres - 2:00 ~ 4:00
    Depth - 3:00

    what cab/speakers?

    those gain settings are pretty wild. I myself have found that "less" mode can still be useful for high gain sounds. just dime gain II, and the sound takes on a very round, thick, and responsive character. this is with my d60 but it should still be applicable with the sig.
