    You're describing an extreme shift in sound from Zakk to Bon Jovi, to Steve Vai. The 800 will never do that all on it's own. That's one reason why all those guys use completely different amps, as well as guitars, which you have to take into account as well.
    Plug a mahogany les paul with humbuckers into an 800, it's day. Plug a basswood guitar with humbuckers in, it's night. Plug in a single coil alder strat, it's next week.
    What I'm saying is, if you want completely different sounds stick to one amp and try switching guitars. Of course you might need a pedal or two in front of the amp as well.
