Here you can see how some worldwide famous guitar players use the 2/50 head. You can start
recreating their original tone settings reported below and as a starting point to create your own personal sound.
Here are some simple pics of how I use the 2/50 head in my studio. Hope they're okay for you. I have another amp,
which I use as well, alternating between the two,
to see which sounds best for a given part.
I can get a sweet sound from the Valve, without
it being too loud. I keep the resonance control at minimum and the Presence control at about 3 O'clock. All the best,
The amp it is awesome most guitarists who hear my sound are really blown away and always ask me about the amp.
Thanks again for one of the best amp I've ever heard, this amp really makes me smile every time I do a gig. Thanks again Bri."
I use the 2/50 head for a more classic rock sound. Clean channel not used.
Lead Channel used like a classic late 60s -early 70s vintage amp (ie....
Clean sounds achieved by lowering volume knob on guitar). This creates a
"round-tubey" kind of clean like heard with Hendrix on songs such as WIND
CRIES MARY, HEY JOE and LITTLE WING.
(Optional - Overdrive pedal also used for heavier sounds and leads -- EXAMPLE:
The song HOLY WARS was recorded using the VALVE 2/50 Head with settings shown
and an old DOD250 overdrive pedal)."
