All purpose patch for live playing

Solid patch.

Is that Delay always engaged in your main rhythm tone?

Any special reason to use a PEQ instead of Low-Cut in the Cab block to block those freqs below 70Hz?

I like a very slight low mix delay (350) on my rhythm tone (learned that from Richard Smith) gives Twin on R&B tunes a bit more life/fullness.

The PEQ was in there when I was experimenting (could probably remove) and make the changes to the cabs. The Tweed (scene 5) has the PEQ disabled. I also used your recommended settings on the Tweed amp. The patch works for what I play. I use it for about 95% of the tunes we do. I use a Dumble patch on a couple of tunes (Sleepwalk, instrumental version of Moondance etc), a straight up tweed patch on a couple of tunes (Having A Party, Give Me One Reason, You can keep your hat on, Get Ready, Shakey Ground) and I have a Marshall patch that I have been using on one song (Fooled Around and Fell In Love) and that is it.

Another interesting thing about using a slight delay with the Twin rhythm tone is that on low volumes (home practice) it sounds more pronounced ... but when you crank it up at gig volume with the band you hardly notice there is an actual delay -- however the twin stands out better in the mix (sounds fuller).

For the lead delay I bump it up to 383 and keep the feedback between 17 and 20

+1 I have alway's had a little delay in my my mi as well. Either a tight slap back or longer delay slightyly in the mix.

I used to use a boss analog delay and just give the knob a twist with my foot durring performane to set to taste.

Anyone have any cool Jerry Garcia presets?
Try this... probably more 70's era than his later style. I think I created it on my 513 in single-coil mode. I haven't used the patch in a while, so it's not set up for Scenes.

Amp Y has Fat engaged.

There are two different attempts at the Mutron, one is a wah and the other is a filter block, each controlled by envelope. Try them and see what works for you.
(note, I haven't updated the Wah w/ the new 10.10 FW yet so I don't know how it'll sound...)

You might want to replace one of the drives w/ the Plus Dist for more authenticity. Don't remember why I didn't use one...

A quick note to say thanks for this Tweed Twin patch. I used it live tonight and it was very helpful and much better than the one I replaced it with. I appreciate your sharing this.
