Mike details the settings really well on the gear & tone page of that song lesson.

Based on that I'd start with this on the Katana:

Guitar with humbucker in the bridge position (probably the most important part of that tone!)

Amp: Crunch

Gain & Volume at 50%

Bass: 45% Mid: 55% Treb: 60%

Effect: Yellow booster on 75% (to simulate the Big Muff Fuzz)

Reverb: 30%

This guitar goes into detail about how to specifically dial in the Big Muff Fuzz effect on the Katana.

[quote=Bowman_David]It would be incredible if there was a section on the site to download presets/patches that we could install.

I doubt if GT would be willing or even able to host something like that. And anyway it would be just reinventing the wheel that already exists at other sites dedicated to that purpose.

Also, I think it's an invaluable learning experience to be have to turn those knobs yourself & listen to what they do so you get that knowledge directly. Hope that helps!

Have fun with that tune. It's a fun one!
