I'm looking for a sound like Carlos Santana: an idea?

    Search for his rig like amps, pedals, effects, then try to reproduce it with the Guitar Rig tools...

    I thought you were going to help guide me to that sound?

    Hi @Arco I remember there's a similar discussion on Gearspace about the Carlos in Europe preset. Maybe worth trying out!

    I own a blackface Fender Princeton Reverb. It's the core of what became the Mesa Boogie.

    Story goes: Guys in California made the Princeton into a Hot Rod. Santana came in the shop one day and started laughing at his friends for doing it. They said try it out. Santana plugged in and was blown away, and said, "this thing boogies!"

    Is there a Boogie amp model in Guitar RIg?

    I haven't used GR in years, but I thought that was a worthwhile story to share.
