Jim's Comments: "This pack contains the tones of the father of heavy metal -- Tony Iommi. Here's your chance to rock to Black Sabbath and Heaven and Hell with amazingly accurate guitar tone. Even if you're not a big Sabbath fan, this pack contains a wide array of fantastic vintage and modern hard rock guitar tones. Tony's career has spanned about 50 years, so covering even a portion of his tones over the years required the use of 5 different amp heads."
Please Note: Obviously, the guitar is a very important part of the signal chain, and differences between guitars will affect the tone. We used Jimi's 1957 Gibson Les Paul Special with original 1957 P90 pickups as the reference to build the profiles. There will very likely be differences in tone between your guitar and the reference guitar. If your guitar has a fuller tone, we recommend increasing the Treble and Presence together. Try increasing them both by 0.3 and see how that sounds. If your guitar is bright, try reducing the Treble and Presence by 0.3 and go from there.
