New HD500X Patch: Cali Tread

After recently and unexpectedly seeing Whitesnake live, I remembered how much I used to love the guitar tone that John Sykes had when he recorded their 1987 album and his follow-up Blue Murder albums. I’ve always heard that he used a Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier for those recordings. The HD500X Cali Tread model is based on the 2001 version of that amp, so I decided to create a patch using the Cali Tread.

You can hear a sample of the patch here, and download at https://brianmhall.wordpress.com/hd500x-guitar-patches.
