Now available in three different versions. For 'High Output Humbucker Pickups' (the original version), 'Medium Output Humbucker Pickups', and 'Low Output Humbucker Pickups'.
Try all three versions to see which one works best for you. You can also mix and match them to work with multiple guitars.
Uses 'Pitch' block #1 to drop the tuning down a 1/2-step for standard A-440 tuned guitars. Bypass or delete this block if you are already tuned down or wish to stay in standard tuning. If you make any of these changes, you may also have to change the 'Key' parameter in 'Pitch' block #2 'A' and 'B' to match the 'key' that you plan to play the song in.
Any included 'Custom' IRs should be imported into the same 'User Cab' slot(s) (if currently unused) listed below. If the 'User Cab' slot(s) are being used in your unit, you can use any other slot(s) that you wish. But you must go to the Cab block(s) in the preset and set them to use the new slots that you are now using.
Cab block #1 'A' (Cab 1 'L' and Cab 2 'R') both use the 'Boys Are Back (Moke)' IR.....('User Bank 2' slot #661)
