Let's make a run through the amps again using a Les Paul-style guitar. You'll find the amps take on a different color. The tone will be much different than with the strat-style guitar we used before. Which do you like better?

Again, note that the largest or most expensive amp is not necessarily the best tone. How do they compare?

Here are the settings used:

British Tube Amp: Tone 5, Volume 4

Master Volume Tube Amp: Volume 4, Master Volume 4, Bass 8, Mid 5, Treble 6

'53 National Amp: Volume apprx. 6, Tone apprx. 8 NO OVERDRIVE PEDAL USED ON THIS AMP

Chimey British Tube Amp: Volume 4, Master Volume 3.5, Bass 7, Treble 6, Treble Cut: 6

Overdrive Pedal: Drive 4, Tone 3, Level 4
