    here's some:

    cleans - tele + ac30 top boost (ehx polychorus comes on halfway)

    dirty (master volume) - tele + ac30 normal. After the first half it gets mixed up with a silicon fuzz, starting with the eric johnson llicks.


    Amp on 10, shades of clean and dirty - Strat + ac30 normal channel. Some fuzzface in there for the EJ licks again.


    I also don't do this for a living.

    Thanks! What's cool about ac30s is that the more you turn them up, the more alive (literally) they sound. At lower volumes the normal chan is very dark. Still rich, but there isn't much treble. When you turn it up, then the "brilliance switch" doesn't work anymore (on 10, the brilliance switch has no effect). The top boost channel sounds great at almost all volumes.
