I plan on recording with one at the studio I'm going to. I read that Brian May, among others all used a dallas rangemaster with it. Is that neccesary to get an awesome sound out of it? or can you just use a top boost built into the amp? I'm a huge fan of the stooges,beatles,queen, the jam, who all used them. I'm hoping to get a crunchy rythmn sound, some heavy chugging sounds, some jangely stuff, and some queen type leads. Any tips for setting up the amp to save time when I get there? I'll be using an 80's G&L skyhawk, so it won't all be period vintage but I think it will still sound cool. My current set up that I have been using in my demos, is a tweed fender deluxe reissue, with most of the work being done with an old marshall shredmaster.
