    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.

    Hmmm...

    The AC30 Cab and speakers are a huge part of the AC30 sound. For proof of that, plug a Sig into an AC30 combo cab. Then plug the AC30 amp into a 4X12 cab. I don't think of the AC30 as a clean or overdriven sound. They are kinda one in the same AFAIC.

    I agree the cab & Alnico "Blue Bulldog" is big part of the sound. I know what you mean by the overdrive/clean...I guess I was thinking some of the Beatles, Tom Petty & Queen material. That type midrange & high-end & the harmonics.
    Often when someone else post their settings they approach it different than I would & it makes me see the amp or gear in a different way. Opening a new door...that I tune to my taste.

    I think about picking up a few vintage or modern equivalents of a few of my favorites like a AC30, Tweed Twin, Blackface Bassman, JMP Super Lead, JCM 800, Dumble, Gibson GA -79RVT, Hiwatt DR103, Orange Overdrive 120, etc....
    But often I find I can get enough of these flavors from the amps I have. In many ways obviously this has advantages & part of the reason I use Fryette amps is the versatility.

    This was using my Gibson LPDC with JB in bridge(works fine with others). I use the neck pickup with the first setting usually. I also use my pickup selector and volume on my guitar often. The cab is a 80's Mars 4x12 with Greenbacks on top & V30 on bottom.

    The Sig X is never going to have the hair a Mars has .... With the SAS pedal I can add hair.
    But this is kind of in that range / This is for a Mars & modified type voicing.

    Rhythm & Lead Channel:
    Live / Brit or Burn / Blow for more lower midrange in the voice.
    Gain I - 3:00 - max
    Gain II - 5:00 or less
    Boost On
    More Mode /either
    40W /either
    Master - 9:00 ~ 11:00 / up above this it starts to add poweramp grind.
    Wood
    Treb - 2:00
    Mid - 2:00 ~ Max
    Bass - 2:00
    Pres - 2:00 ~ 4:00
    Depth - 2:00

    The Fryette never really sounds like whatever amp I am emulating ~ but it can ballpark a lot of amps.
    I consider the Lead channel more "creamy".
    Try all 4 voices that can be found using the LESS / MORE & 100W / 40W - switches.
    Depending on your guitar & cab you might want the presence much lower.
    For a more Hiwhat type voice set GAIN I - in the 1:00 / 2:00 range.
    As before this is only a starting place recommendation.
