This setup was initially modeled after Joe Satriani’s live rig, though I have tailored it to my liking: To me the sound is very similar to Joe’s:
“The Forgotten – Part 2”
>From “Flying in a Blue Dream”

With this setup you can get a fantistic “throaty” gain that can be easily varied with the guitar’s volume knob. It cleans up well. The Brake allows volume attenuation while allowing you to drive the valves hard and saturate the amp’s output transformer. The crybaby offers extreme presence suitable for coaxing a very controllable feedback and harmonics. The Digitech routing allows use of the amp’s effects Mix control (for DSP) while the compression limits the peaks from the Crybaby as well as increases the sustain. This is the most noiseless setup I’ve ever used.
