I did. I thought it sounded great, though the sound guy mentioned he used a little bit of de-esser on it in the house mix because it is so bright. I guess I'll keep fiddling with it until I tweak the exact sound. Jerry's settings are a good starting point, but I think tweaks are needed for smaller venues than RFK Stadium. :)

I usually use the Earth Drive, always on, right before the SMS preamp. This gives me that little bit of grit Jerry had with blasting his volume. Lately I have been using a Klon clone I built from a kit in place of the Earth Drive. It’s similar to the Earth Drive, but it has more upper mids, and I dig it. Either or really. I am sure to go back to the ED in that position, although I know use it for mid level grit on leads.

I think I might try this - I love that ultra clean sound my Sarno gives me but the combo of the Ibanez guitar / Mosvalve / E 120 is overly bright and at the levels Im playing will never get a natural break up
