Just a tone demo. Amp was 1 foot from the mic, on center. Probably should have been off center to get better bass.

Epiphone Les Paul with paf style pickups (Seymour Duncan 59).

Amp set to gain 0.75, volume of 10 (Playing it Loud for some power tube distortion - half of the distortion is power tube). EQ / ISF = UK, with slightly less treble due to volume. This amp screams at low volumes, but cranked, it really sings!

I sometimes use a clean boost to add clean gain without touching knobs. Or was my intent, but it looks like I used a setting with clean boost + a tiny bit of pedal overdrive. In anycase, it's pretty obvious when I do - it goes to a much higher gain level and is pretty much at the limit of what the microphone could take. Using the stock speaker.

The HT-5 has a ton of pre-amp gain on tap. The point of this recording was to record a lightly overdriven type Marshall Crunch like AC/DC, Zeppelin live, etc.

bridge vol = 10, neck vol = 8

This is a simple classic rock tone.
Clean channel, volume 8/10, tone 10/10, with a danelectro fish n Chips EQ up front for a slight (subtle) treble boost effect.

Using an ES-335 style guitar with high output bridge humbucker.13 gauge strings in standard tuning.

The sound is basically classic rock, mostly pre-amp distortion, with a little bit of power amp sizzle.

This basically proves you can get some medium-low gain sounds out of the clean channel. It didn't really need a booster, but I liked the gainer sound with it (a hair more grit) and the treble boost helped my 335 imitate the strat / tele sound used on the original.
