Fender Blues deluxe sample settings??????

I keep trying to find "that sound" with my blues deluxe amp but always end up messing it up somehow. Im into a cleaner sounding blues but i like it to still have a very full sound. I play an american deluxe if that helps. Does anyone have any suggestions?!

On my BD I have the Middle & Presence set on full, Treble at zero, Bass about four & the Bright switch active. Might seem a little odd but it works for me ;-)...

It can take some experimenting but it's in there. With an Eminence speaker I've ended with the treble and presence at about 65% and bass at about 40%. '62 AVRI Strat. I don't have the stock tubes but it sounds very full and clean.

My method of finding tone is always to max out everything, and pull out the tones I find bothersome. Seems easier to me that way for some reason.

I normally don't list tone settings cuz they can vary widely depending on the guitar and the acoustic environment, but what the heck. I play a MIM Standard Strat equipped with Fender SCN pups through my BDRI. My settings are:

Bright - Off
Treble - 6
Bass - 3
Middle - 4
Presence - 8

I use the clean channel almost exclusively and add a Monte Allums H2O Plus modified Blues Driver for dirt.
