Recommended Posts

Hi, just got the Helix LT and want to create some patches for the following artists signature rigs...

 

Jonny Greenwood

Kurt Cobain

Tom Morello

Mark Tremonti

Joe Bonamassa

Matt Bellamy

Periphery

 

Suggestions on amp, cab and pedals to give me a starting point?

Tom Morrello uses a JCM800 and a variety of different 4x12 cabs. He had been known to not use anything too extravagant. Pitch wham, Wah, tremolo, script phaser. He uses an eq for a level boost for solos. He used a few effects from the Line6 FM4 that I own and love, that were modeled in the Pod HD series, but sadly left off of Helix...

 

I made a pretty good Misha Mansoor preset based off of a Sweetwater tone walk through he did. Panama into CaliV30/Match h30 dual cabs. Screamer and hard Gate out front. Paired with a clean twin with compression out front, modulated delay and cave verb out back.

Hi

For Matt Bellamy you can try one of my presets here:

This is my base preset for most mid to high gain songs from Muse.

Just a cranked Plexi with a tube screamer in front.

I'm aiming for the live sound instead of the studio sound but I'm still experimenting with other amps.

I think it works well.

 

For a more studio sound you may try an AC30 for clean and crunchy songs and something like the ENGL which is somewhat comparable to the Diezel VH4 which Matt also uses for the high gain sounds.

Since now he uses Kempers it's always a guessing game.

For more recent songs he used Fender Deluxes and Roland Jazz for cleans and a modded ampeg with pedals in front for high gain, besides the Diezel and the modded Plexi he normally uses.

Stock cabs with V30's if you don't want to use the IR's.

Some of my presets have the D.I. guitar into a fuzz factory into an EQ with a LPF and straight out running in parallel. Works great with some songs.

Check it out here:

Add to that the usual phaser, stereo delays and reverb and you're good to go.

 

Cheers
