Well I don't know how the amp sounds, I don't have one. Try having your gain at about 12 o'clock (unless it gets more gainy than I think, in which case turn it down lower) and turn the contour way up. Then maybe have the treble at 2 o'clock or so with the bass at about 5, and see what you get.

My advice: Use your ears!
Listen to the main riff-play it-adjust till you get closer to the sound you heard on CD. All I know is no reverb cause it's a really dry sound on CD.

Yeah do what he says, I'm just trying to give you a starting point, but I could be way off tongue.gif
