Squire Strat w/Lil ’59 in Bridge, Zoom 5000 Distortion Pedal, Laney LC 15
With this combination you can get the PERFECT sound of Creed’s guitar at a seriously reasonable volume. I fell upon this sound searching for the perfect sound for One and Whats This Life For.
ll controls on 10. P/U switch on bridge/middle position.
Zoom 5000: R+B, Level wherever you like, Gain cranked, Low @ 2 o’clock, High @ 11 o’clock.
Laney LC 15: Gain-whatever gives you the correct volume, Bright switch off, bass, mid, and treble at 12 o’clock, Volume cranked. You need to play with the gain setting just a little bit, to the point where you get the amp just on the clean side of breaking up. This is also good for a nice jazzy sound if you’re into that.
