Hi

 

I'm relatively new to the guitar and I have a Spider IV 75 amp.  What I want to do is find a good tone for playing power chords on my electric.  I thought I would use the clean channel (red/green) and then manually increase the drive.  This does not seem to alter the sound that much, certainly not to the extent of the sounds I hear on you tube videos on the subject.  Most were recommending a clean setting with a bit of fuzz, but I can't seem to replicate it.

 

Any help greatly appreciated

 

Cheers

Graeme

I'd recommend you keep experimenting - try different manual settings, or work with an existing preset.  'Power chord' is just a term meaning doing the root-fifth-octave notes of a chord, doesn't define what kind of sound you are lookng for.  The guitar you use (and its pickups) also will affect the overall sound.

The "crunch" mode on my spider iv 15 isnt too bad for power chords, a bit of tweeking and thats more clean to my ear than I have found on the spider amps.
