The following scenes are set up for instant access to various tones:

  • Scene 1: RHYTHM. This is main rhythm tone of the dirty amps.
  • Scene 2: RHYTHM +. Adds the Tube Screamer
  • Scene 3: SOLO: Adds the EQ boost and gain blocks
  • Scene 4: CLEAN. Basic clean tone with chorus.



Everything after the amp runs in stereo. If you are running mono, you’ll need to sum your signal to mono before going to FOH (if you only use the Left output, won’t hear the Badger amp or some of the delays at all).

The easiest way to make this adjustment is in the ‘Setup’ menu:

  • Choose ‘Setup’, and select ‘I/O’
  • In OUTPUT 1 CONFIGURATION (choose the physical output you are using), change the ‘Mode’. Select ‘STEREO’ if you are running in stereo. Select ‘’SUM L+R’ if you are running mono. This will convert your output to mono and sum the stereo image. This will also cause all your presets to output in mono, as it is a global setting.


If you are using an FC 6, the first button in the Effects layer is set to toggle between Channels A and B in the amp block. This is controlled by the Per-Pedal mapping #23.

All guitars are different, so you may want to make changes to suite your playing style and guitar.  To adjust the preset for your guitars, the primary controls to adjust would be:

  • Input Drive (and/or Input Trim). If the clean sounds from this preset are too dirty, lower the input drive and/or trim. Do the opposite if you want more gain. This preset is meant to be on the edge of breakup at it’s cleanest settings (otherwise the drives won’t stack properly).
  • EQ settings (amp block – basic). Once the desired gain staging is set, the next adjustment would be the amp EQ settings.
  • GEQ settings (Graphic EQ block). The 5-band Graphic EQ allows you to make simple changes to the overall tone. Feel free to adjust these to your liking. Since this is a passive EQ, you can make rather large changes to the faders.
  • Output EQ settings (amp block). The Graphic EQ on the amp block is a great way to make final EQ adjustments. We’ve set it to ‘Post P.A.’, which means the EQ settings will not be affected by the Power Amp section.


The FM3 offers very useful tools to check overall level of individual presets and blocks. In the Output block you can monitor the overall output level. You can also monitor levels of each block individually from the front screen of the FM3.

If you’d like to adjust the level up or down (to match it with other presets), we recommend adjusting one of the following:

  • Level (amp block – basic). This will adjust the overall level of the preset up/down. Avoid using the ‘Master Volume’ control, as this will change the tone of the amp.
  • Level (cab block). This will also adjust the overall level of the preset up/down.

And finally, thank you so much for purchasing this preset!
