A preset inspired by the influential grunge album Nevermind by Nirvana. This preset was modelled after the song Smells Like Teen Spirit. It has a Distortion pedal (the same one Kurt used) and chorus and other effects to give this preset that trademark sound.

Depending on how your guitar is set up, you will need to adjust specific parameters of this preset to get it to sound right. Like most presets online, they sound good for the creator but require tweaking for others. Where possible, we will assist customers in tweaking presets to their liking.

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.
