I started playing guitar back in '08 and never slowed down since. My name's Justin and I'm 14. The only genre of music i play is classic rock. I'm trying to contribute to that Back in Black tone that we all love. When I'm not on here I'm either at home recording or riding my horses.

You can still take some mids off, to make it more similar to the album.
For the solo: you are doing well, but you must listen more carefully to the tempo of the song, as you tend a bit to run ahead 🙂

And for the timing on the solo it could be my iPhone. When I watch it on my phone it wasn’t like that it may be the uploading. I’ve also noticed that YouTube altered the tone a bit. And for settings would you suggest your Treble 4, Mids 2, Bass 2, or Treble 6, Mids 5, Bass 6?

Well, I almost always do EQ in post (after) my sound. So I suggest you do that, as well. Will show you how, with maybe simple, free software to EQ.
The settings used are good, with some bass, mids at 3-4, treble is right almost at center (5-ish) and volume 7-ish.

Im using class 5 by itself now though but still with boost. and idk if ican eq my iphones recording. My best settings were Treble 6, Mids 3, and Bass 6. Volume 7

My boost to replicate the SVDS is the Digitech bad monkey tube overdrive. is it possible that tube overdrive pedals reproduce a smooth overdrive not really knowing that it’s actually the SVDS. I mean i set my level and gain according to your SVDS settings. Gain was at 6 and Level at 3 for solo here. New video has the boost on all the time and gain at 8 and level the same.

Fil I got a better sound for the High Voltage album running MV. Is that possibly what was used it might just be my equipment.

Sounding good man!
Wish I could do the solo that well. 🙂

I should have the solo perfect as many times as I have played it lol. As for the taking mids off i will try. I did that as a MV but I want to try and capture it with the amp running NMV. I wish I had microphones to record with as this was recording on my iPhone. I think the tone is nice though. Fil you should try out a Marshall Class 5 like not even buy one but just try one at a music store. In person I would like to know if it has as much overdrive as a 1959. It’s supposed to be based on it because it doesnt sound like a bluesbreaker.

Man the Class 5 amps sound awesome. You really have to crank them though to get that nice overdrive out of them since there is no gain knob. I’ve also found that when you do turn them up to 10 you have to roll off the bass a bit to avoid a bit of muddiness . Make no mistake, they are very loud for 5 watts. Plug one into a 4×12 and see! You can easily get away with playing with a band with one of these as long as everyone is playing at a reasonable volume. For a $400 or so amp they are wicked. I used to boost one with a mild OD pedal and it was just screaming!! 😀

i found some great settings for my class 5, bass is at 3, mids 3-4, treble 5 and volume is at 6. so warm and clear, a great overdrive tone! great job on the song btw and Chris congrats once again on the 2204!

The class 5’s are great. I’d get another today if I had the extra coin laying around.

I am cranking my class 5 just attenuated. I’m running it at 7 on my new video i will put up soon. I meant i wished i could run it 5 watts.
