Marshall amp with overdrive
Alnico 5 pickups
Thats the recipe for neoclassical tone
some of my guitars have a ceramic magnet in the bridge and alnico in the neck. This gives you more of a modern tone. The ceramic gives you tons of gain for rhythms and the alnico is warm for sweeps and runs.
one great trick for leads is to set the delay at 325ms so it just thickens your sound. 😁
