Besides Neil’s incredible vocals, the key to sounding like Clutch is Orange amps. Fortunately, the Quad Cortex comes with some factory companies of numerous Orange amps, and in this preset, you get very close to the Clutch sound.
While this preset was built around the song The Face by Clutch off of their album Earth Rocker (hence the preset name), it will work pretty much for any Clutch song. Tim Sult’s equipment rarely changes.
These demos were recorded on an Epiphone Casino with P90 pickups in the bridge position.

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 of the demos that you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed in any way and are not double-tracked. All demos are single-tracked guitars. For clone presets especially, what you hear in the song is a result of layered tracks, production and other studio additions to get that sound, the guitars themselves in the mix sound different.
Important: After placing your order, please allow upwards of 24 hours for your presets to be made available. Due to how the Neural DSP Cortex Cloud currently works, you will need to befriend our profile, and presets will be shared with you. Make sure you add the user “Beggars” on Cortex Cloud.
