HT-20 mkii Pop Punk?

Hey all!

I bought my HT-20 head and matching 2x12 earlier this year, and I’m still working on breaking in the speakers, but in the meantime, a question about settings/EQ:

I play a lot of pop punk, some hardcore influenced stuff as well. What I’m specifically looking for is a sound akin to Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory/Shai Hulud. I have a couple Les Pauls, some Strats with buckers, etc., so the guitars aren’t an issue. I’m having a hard time finding the right EQ settings on the amp to get THAT sound. Blackstars, from my experience, are notoriously dark amps, which is fine, but I can’t seem to get the right mix.

Any other pop punk players on the forum? Can anyone point me in the right direction?
