    I know there are a tone of Barber Small Fry settings threads but I'm not really looking for the $10,000 amp setting.

    Basically I want a high gain lead tone that has kinda pops a bit. You know has some teeth to it without the ice pick. Almost Warren Haynes esq... if he used a Tele and a 17 watt amp.

    Anyone have some settings I should try.

    I am using a tele and a goodsell Super 17.

    Do you run the amp clean or dirty?

    Semi - thanks so much man. What type of tone are you going for with these settings?

    OK, I usually run mine into a clean amp as well.

    I tend to use:

    Gain: 1:00 or a little higher
    Dynamics: 9:00-10:30
    Tone: 12:00-1:00
    Volume: unity, or higher if using for a lead boost (back of guitar volume for rhythm tones)
    Toggle: left or right usually.

    This gives me a relatively gainy lead tone. Sounds *great* to my ears with a Tele, something along the lines of Robben Ford's tones. Works nicely with humbuckers as well.

    The internal presence knob might be handy for adjusting the amount of "sizzle" or "pop" you get (the midrange knob is handy as well).

    Awesome. I'll have to try these out. I guess i'll need to open up the back and play with the trimmers a bit.

    By cranking the dynamics and keeping the gain lower, I get a medium to high gain tone because of all the added harmonics...it retains note clarity but sounds dirty...
    I was playing rush "limelight" last night, ibanez artcore as73-pedals-drri...used the small fry at this setting and it gave me a good rush tone...I also have eq pedals in the chain as well though
