Gain: 11

Volume: 11

Bass: 11

Mid: 11

High: 11

Attitude: 11

Seriously, though, I don't have one. Just some basic tips to get the brown sound:

1) Turn the bottom and mids to 8 or 9

2) Turn the high to 5

3) Gain should be at about 7

That usually will get you close, but other than that, I have no idea
CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

I've got a Spider II (going through a Peavey 412)

I use the GREEN metal channel... Gain at 90%, bass at 100%, mid at 50%, treble at about 60-70%.

Delay/Reverb set accordingly...

That seems to get me a decent VH1 and VH2ish tone...

It's actually the only usable tone I can find on that amp...
