Tone Details

Tone Name Kings of Leon
Created with POD HD500
Author chrisjw5
Matthew Followill
Sex on Fire / Use Somebody
Kings of Leon
Amp Blackface 'Lux Nrm
I wrote this to try to cover some Kings songs with one guitar. As written, it uses a standard Blackface, good for the Sex on Fire intro. FS1 engages the Tube Driver for some slight bump - think Caleb's rhythm chorus to Use Somebody. FS5 is Matthew's lead sound. It introduces a Screamer, a Modulated Delay and some Analog Chorus for that big, almost U2 sound on Only By The Night. This is your lead Chorus to all the big-sounding songs. Use FS5 and FS8 (Opto Trem) for a decent approximation of Jared's delayed bass as the hook to Closer. FS2 is a Dimension chorus, just because I had the room.

Model Packs increase the number of Amp or FX Models of a GuitarPort, TonePort, PODxt, PODxt Live or PODxt Pro, for a wider variety of tone possibilities. When a particular tone in the library relies on a Model available in one of these packs, you'll see symbol(s) to indicate which Packs: MS (Metal Shop), CC (Classics Collection), FX (FX Junkie), and PP (Power Pack).

The models within the FX Junkie Model Pack are already included in PODxt Live, and offered for purchase to add-on to GuitarPort, TonePort, PODxt and PODxt Pro.

Variax is the uniquely flexibile guitar from Line 6. Our Vetta II amplifier includes a digital connection for the Variax that lets you store settings for both your amp and your guitar in the Vetta II so that when you call up a Vetta Channel Memory your amp and guitar can change sounds together. Vetta II Tones marked with this guitar symbol include this Variax data.

For each tone in the library, you'll see an icon for either a single coil or humbucker pickup. This tells you whether the tone is best for use with a single coil pickup or a humbucker, so you can select the appropriate pickup on your guitar when using this tone.

Attention POD 2.0, Flextone and HD147 owners... Your hardware doesn't do Stomp effects, so you'll hear something different than what was intended. Try increasing the Drive or choose a higher gain Amp Model to get the right sound. The other aspects of the sound should translate as expected, so you'll at least get a great starting place for tweaking.
