Ghost of Electricity Posted September 30, 2012 Share Posted September 30, 2012 As you stated, there are lots of variables. It's often good to start with an idea of what tone you have in mind, and try to set the variables to achieve that tone. For example, if you want some country sounding guitar, you'd typically want the bridge pickup of the tele. Set the tone knob to something bright but not ice-picky. Run it through the Carbon Copy set for slapback. The Feedback and Delat knobs should be just a touch above zero (about 7 o'clock) and the the level around 10 or 11 o'clock. The amp is also impportant here: what kind is it? I suggest you set it for the edge of breakup when your guitar's volume is maxed. That way you can roll off the guitar's volume a bit and you'll get a cleaner tone good for rhythm. When it's time for lead, crank the volume back up full and it gets a bit of OD. I don't have any experience with the OCD, I'd leave it off in the above scenario. The amp is definetley a very important part of the equation. What kind do you have?
