Mick Ronson is pure Les Paul through cranked Marshall. The really trick here is to get the cocked wah sound. I'm not sure how to set the Katana's auto wah to not open & close. So you might just have to boost the mids & add a fuzz.

Crunch amp type

Gain 5

Volume 7

Bass 4

Mid 6

Treble 8

Effects - Booster (Again!) but you'll have to go into the BOSS Tone Studio settings on your computer. Look for the 60s Fuzz effect. You might get by with the basic distortion setting.

Gary Moore's tone was a Les Paul on the neck pickup into an overdrive (supposedly a Marshall Governor pedal) into a loud Marshall (supposedly a JTM45).

Effects - Booster (Again!) look for a good overdrive (yellow) setting & try it around 7-8.

Hope that helps!
