anyone know the settings Vai uses for his Ds-1? im trying to get a kinda Vaish tone these days

well from what i remember it's a 2 channel amp .. so you can prolly get some nicer results if you just put your amp on the crunch channel .. with just a slight ammount of distortion very slight .. then put your boss DS-1 over the top of that with a fair bit of bass and mids in the mix there .. obviously i can't give you exact setting so just fiddle with that ..you'll find that steve along with alot of other players don't use as much distortion as people think so be careful not to over do it
hope that helps out
AC/DC use hardly any distortion either. Alot of players (like myself) use excessive distortion to hide sloppy playing.prosbloom225 said:Your dead on, most professionals don't use that much distortion. If I recall EVH only put the amp on about 3 maybe 4. As for the Vai question Vai uses the ds-1 mostly as a booster. He uses the distorted channel on the amp and the pedal to boost mainly for solos and such.
