This tone model bundle is a collection of tones based off a Friedman Pink Taco v2.0 tube amplifier. This bundle is a set of captures based off my favorite settings on the amp at its highest gain settings.

The bundle includes 12 tone models (amp > mic > mic pre) all at various settings. It also includes the same 12 tone models captured as Direct captures with an included custom IR baked into the DI preset.


The naming convention for the tone presets are, for example, as follows:

JS – PT Ult 3 (S-Middle/S-Down/S-Up | Sat | F)

The Pink Taco amp has a gain structure switch marked as “S”. The tone models are notated with the “S” switch in either its “Middle”, “Up” or “Down” position. This switch changes the gain structure of the amplifier. If the name contains an “F” it means the tone model was captured with the “Fat” switch engaged. If the name contains “Sat” it means the model was captured with the “Sat” (Saturation) switch engaged. If either “F” or “Sat” are not showing in the name, it means the respective switch was not engaged in that particular tone model.

The Beyer Dynamic M160 microphone used to meticulously capture these tone models was recorded into a Cranborne Audio Camden 500 mic-pre.

Feel free to use these captures and presets as starting points to dial in your own tones or use them as dialed in by default.
