Best Tones for a Les Paul...
by jasonk931 on 2012-11-29 11:14:48.2280

Hey all, Can you guys send me some links to the best Custom tones for a Gibby LP Custom? I've been used to tube amps, and I'm looking for some great sounding tones to satisfy that tube craving I have, but through my HD 500. Any help appreciated...

I think all of the models on the HD series are based on tube amps.  Some of them are even rather good

You might be better off trying to describe the style or tone you are shooting for.  Easier for us to recommend sources.

Out of the gate I was not impressed with the presets, so I began with raw amps and added from there and came up with a few good tones. I'm not into heavy fuzz or metal, but I love a good classic rock tone, and being able to shift to a smooth melodic and harmonic base for my slower songs in the set. I have enjoyed tweaking the Lincoln Brewster patches, but he uses a strat, so I'm almost losing the real feel trying to level it to a Les Paul Custom. Just wondered if you guys could post a few of your best patches for a Les Paul so I could test them out and use them.

Also, We video all of our services, and as I use my HD 500 more, I will post the video links of the different tones used for critique. Thanks everyone. Line 6 community is by far the best and most concerned community I've ever been a part of!!! Great company!!
