Well, I don't really play U2 songs at home other than the occasional "Bad" noodle, but I did record this fake U2 song with a Vox AD15VT and a Firebird.

No stompboxes, nothing else. To me it sounds pretty damn close to the mid/late 80s Edge.

Ah in that case, I would think you'd be ok. My brother has the 50watt dual 12" version and it's easily loud enough for even a spacious club, so if you have the 100watt I'm sure you'll be fine.

The girl that used to be the guitar player in Exit used a Valvetronix. Not sure the exact model. Okay for some stuff. But then they played a lot of early U2 as she didn't have rack gear and such like The Edge.

But for early stuff with a few pedals, one could probably get decent U2 tones, just as she did.

That song was an Epiphone Firebird VII directly into the Vox AD15VT. I miked that, ran it through a Behringer XENYX 1204USB mixer, into Garageband.

The bass was a Yamaha bass, and the Ebow bit was a Telecaster. The drums were a combination of loops and MIDI drums that I played, and there were some other backing loops and some synths buried in there as well.
