I'm looking for a great AC30 front end patch to use into the loop return of my Mesa Mini Rectifier. I'm looking for a big U2 chime. A quick lap through customtone.com revealed 69 tones. Any favorites?

I didn't find it too hard to get a good sound out of it if you just mess around...

I usu have:

Tube comp
Screamer or Color OD (on or off to taste)

Gain ~35%
Bass ~52%
Mids ~75%
Treb ~10%
Pres ~0%

Reverb

My strat is a bit too trebly and I find I don't need any "highs" added.

I really like the dual AC15/30 patch that comes as a preset with a little tweakage to taste. I think it's called "dual class a clean" or some ****.

The Tube Comp works WONDERS in front of the Ac30. I also like to adjust the Bias and Bias X all the way up and make it real saggy for those "dangly" mid-high voxy crunch tones. I use the 2x12 silver bell with the 2nd dynamic mic (can't remember the model) with the E.R. set to pretty high. Throw a plate reverb at 10-15% mix and dial down those Basses a good bit and it's magic.

I have also grown fond of the studio EQ at it's default setting as well.

Thanks for the tip on the Bias/Bias X. I hadn't dug into it that far, and they seem to control what I found to be lacking in all the other patches I have tried.

And the Todd Fields patch is Money!
