    Or even try flatwound strings. You say you've got a "naff" amp. Well, can't you borrow a decent one? Surely you have friends who'd like to borrow something of yours sometime?

    What I be's doin' is creating a single channel, then duplicating it. You could do this for multiple channels if you wanted.
