How can I get a surf rock tone from an Ax2 212 amp?

I am look for the best surf rock style sound that I can get out of this amp..something like the Ghastly Ones or Dick Dale..What combination of effect do I need or what preset will work.

Hi,

A clean amp (like the Roland 120), lots of reverb and tremolo on a single coil pickup will get you that kind of sound.

Clean Fender amps should work well too.  Also try a slap echo (delay with short delay time and little-to-no feedback).

I think almost all reverb effects from those days were spring reverbs, so I would favor spring over room or hall reverb.
