    I just watched a tutorial on getting a good Van Halen tone and it touched on these settings except more extreme and I have to admit it was very noticible on the pick attack...love it.

    Sure thing!

    This starts out very kinda boring but the end result was awesome.

    I have an AX8 and not sure but a lot of the settings he references were on different pages for me in AX8 edit. Enjoy.

    Edit: I should have clarified what I meant by more extreme was the Character settings used.

    I have looked all in my Axe 3 and looked at every parameter under amp and do not see Character freq or Character. Where is it located?

    In the Axe III, the Character function has been replaced by the more-powerful Input EQ.

    After reading this, I was a bit disappointed to hear it has been removed. Yes, I realize that Input EQ has replaced it and while that is a nice addition to be sure... it is an entirely different animal.

    While reading this I had the idea to use it to chase some Gibson L5 tones like King’s X... bright single coil tone for picking rhythm which darkens up to thunder chunk while power chording.

    Shucks... but I do love the Tech Notes. Great resources. Thanks for putting time in to these sir.

    If you tie Gain to an envelope follower, you'll find it to be a very similar animal. ;)
