Chevelle has a distinctive and thick, primarily associated Mesa-driven tone. Pete Loeffler is known for experimenting with different drop-tunings, but over the years, despite some gear changes (including Orange amplifiers), the Chevelle sound has primarily remained the same.
This preset is inspired by the early days of the Chevelle sound, especially the This Type of Thinking and Sci-fi Crimes. It comes with two scenes:
- Scene A: Thick and heavy hi-gain sound
- Scene B: Slightly driven, clean sound (perfect for songs like The Red)

Disclaimer: Like most presets, don’t expect a plug-and-play experience. Depending on your guitar, pickups, strings and playing, this preset might sound different after purchase. Where possible, we will assist all customers with tweaking their presets to get their desired tone. All the demos you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed or double-tracked. All demos are single-tracked guitars. For clone presets especially, what you hear in the song results from layered tracks, production and other studio additions to get that sound. The guitars themselves in the mix sound different.
