    I thought the 900 sounded better before the pedal, not quite the AC/DC sound but it was better.

    I think the solodalas pedal is designed for a pure clean tone and once the solodalas pedal is on its just te right amount of grit for the AC/DC sound. Lots of mids on the EQ also.

    I think the BIB tone was good but i like his tone with Bon Scott the best.

    Aye, fair enough man... I did post some old ones from a couple of old bands on that other site, but the only chance I've had to record a video with these new guys the phone dropped down the back of the amp.... :-( doh!!

    Which Angus tone are you talking about. Find the PG rig rundown. Pretty simple. Buy every vintage Marshall you can get your hands on. thunder.JPG run this through it. 61ri.JPG or maybe this.

    You said that you have bought the Storm pedal from SoloDallas, does it sound good?

    Turn the volume and master to 10 with the EQs and the Presence down to 3, gain at 4 and adjust however you see fit, I had an old stock Epiphone G400 that I think nailed the Highway to Hell tone on my Fender Mustang head, I can get the dry tone on my Marshall but I dont have the pedals yet to get the slight delay and reverb.

    although this is an amp forum I have to say that the late 60's early 70's sg gibsons with the t tops will get you the closest to his tone.

    The Storm pedal definitely gets you closer to the Back in Black era tone. It does exactly as advertised. If you're willing to pay for it, then I'd buy one.
